I wouldn't say it's the best Brian Clough statue in the world, but it's in the Top One...



It's just a shame that they've put it up in front of such a tall, dark building, the former Prudential Building and Hard Rock Cafe, now a Vienna Restaurant



It's also a shame that they had to uproot a tree to make way for it



The area in front of Old Big 'E'd is now Britain's first official Speaker's Corner outside London, and Jack Straw came up last week to cut a ceremonial ribbon - http://www.thisisnottingham.co.uk/news/Nottingham-Speakers-Corner-officially-opened/article-731049-detail/article.html
The news report doesn't actually carry a photograph of either statue or the Speakers Corner space itself, so here it is



I haven't seen anybody use it yet for purpose - it's a favourite pitch for Big Issue sellers.
