Ian Storey-Moore

Storey-Moore was close to joining rivals Derby County

After spending a decade at Nottingham Forest, Storey-Moore decided to join rivals Derby County in 1972. After the fee was agreed, Morre said, ”I’ve joined a great club”. When questioned about Manchester United, the former England footballer rubbished the reports and stated, ”I don’t know anything about it. All I know is I’ve joined a great club.”

A week later, it was revealed that Ian had actually joined Manchester United. However, the decision didn’t turn out well for the player. Derby went on to win the league that year.
