Daily Mirror Apologises

Daily Mirror Apologises

Richard Wallace, the editor of the Daily Mirror has been inundated with your complaints, regarding comments made by columnist Brian Reade about our former manager Brian Clough.

Reade said in his sports column that the money spent on the statue to the Great Man would have been better spent on a bottle bank. His words so incensed fans, that the paper was inundated with complaints from irate Forest fans.

The Mirrors' response says. 'Thank you for your note and the reflection of comments on your site. By its very nature Brian Reade's column sails close to the wind as you will know. And occasionally he oversteps the mark. I do regret that his comments - designed as a joke, however lame - have caused you and others such distress. For that I can only apologise. As you may imagine we assimilate and publish millions of words and pictures each week. Sometimes we get it wrong, as perhaps we did in this case although it is never our intention to upset or alienate readers. Again, my thanks for getting in touch and making your feelings known. The Mirror is not normally in the business of upsetting readers, it's not our style. And I hope you will see it as an error rather than an editorial stance.'

Fair play to them for admitting they got it wrong. I hope the Clough family get the same apology for the distress the comments will have made. Old Big 'Ead will always be a legend and will never be forgotten for the success he brought to our club.
