First Division striker Garry Thompson couldn't believe it when Brian Clough presented him with a surprise gift after a match.

Especially as the big West Bromwich Albion centre forward had just scored a hat-trick against Cloughie's Nottingham Forest in 1984.

It's just one of the great memories Thompson shares in this episode. He also talks about working with Paul Hart, Stan Collymore, Ian Wright, Graham Taylor and Johnny Giles.

There is also a competition to win an unusual piece of artwork celebrating Cloughie's trophies successes.

Garry Thompson's autobiography Don't Believe A Word is available online from Curtis Sport.

Green Jumper is presented by the editor of the tribute website, Marcus Alton.
