Gordon firstly persuaded the mutinous Derby squad not to go on strike, advising the senior players that it could ruin the careers of some youngsters, then took charge of the game straight after their departure, at which Clough appeared, giving a chairman-baiting wave to the crowd who chanted for his return. I acted as the go-between, trying to calm some of their shattered nerves.

It was a job he continued to do throughout his time at Forest. He was a constant, a steadying figure that was essential with a manager like Clough.
Above all he was there to help the players, whatever that took, as illustrated in a story from Peter Shilton, who was concerned about practising on the hard training pitches in Madrid before the European Cup final, so instead they trained on a traffic island near the team hotel. He put down two tracksuit tops as makeshift goalposts and I set to work, against a background of tooting horns from passing cars. Despite arguing so much when Clough was a player, they rarely did as coaches.
McGovern recalls the only disagreement they would regularly have was about the length of training sessions: Clough would be happy after 15 minutes work, but Gordon would want to keep them running. Not ready to give up the game for good, he became a referee in and trained with Burton Albion to keep up his fitness.
He worked alongside the pair at a number of high profile football clubs, including Derby County , Brighton and Hove Albion and Nottingham Forest, being part of the latter's European Cup success in and Maurice worked on transfers for a number of big name stars at the time, including Scottish full back, Frank Gray and one time Manchester United player, Garry Birtles. Peter Shilton, England's most capped player with appearances saw Maurice as a second dad, and would call him "my dad". Maurice also worked for Sunderland under Peter Reid, a club which he held in high esteem for the rest of his life.
Despite his immense success in football, Maurice always split his time between the sport, his family duties and the Wellington Street post office , which Edna would run while he was away scouting. He was immensely proud of each of his ventures, including his role in the Royal Navy, recalls son-in-law Chris: "He would be up at 5am, do the post office, then come the weekends he'd be back to football. Maurice spent his later life writing, and even had a book published in , at the age of 83 entitled "A Right Pair".
This recounted his 21 years working alongside Clough and Taylor and can still be bought on Amazon now.

However, with his family settled on the south coast and not keen to embark on another managerial journey, Peter Taylor decided to stay on at Brighton, leaving Clough to go his own way, the right decision in hindsight seeing that the venture lasted just 44 days as Clough failed to win over the dressing room and struggled without the services of his most loyal Lieutenants.
[LTLF] Book review: Brian and Peter: A Right Pair: 21 Years with Clough and Taylor
Having not spoken for six months Clough was prepared to swallow his pride and once again teamed up with Taylor in what was to be a key move for both men as they once again returned to the east midlands and took over a Nottingham Forest side who were sitting in 13 th place of the old Division Two table. And incredibly in their first season after promotion Forest were crowned champions of Division One, finishing seven points clear of nearest challengers Liverpool, who they also beat to win the League Cup that same season.
Forest narrowly failed to retain their Championship the following year, finishing runners-up to Liverpool but would incredibly be crowned European Champions for the first time in their history, beating Malmo in the final.
They would also retain the League Cup they had won 12 months before when they defeated Southampton at Wembley. They also narrowly failed to make it three League Cup wins in succession when they lost to Wolves at Wembley.
Taylor then announced his retirement from the game at the age of
