At 2 mins 49 secs, Ian Storey-Moore is interviewed with Brian Clough:
- Q: How do you feel about it Ian?
- A: Fabulous, I’ve joined a great club, yeah.

At 3 mins, 28 secs, Mrs Storey-Moore takes responsibility.
From 2 mins 23 secs, to 3 mins 26 secs, Brian Clough at his robust best.
Clough maintained throughout that Storey-Moore had signed for Derby County. Storey-Moore was present in the first segment, and appears to concur that a contract had been signed.
So what happened to that contract?
Such is life.
