"Football legend Clough dies"

Brian Clough was a genius. His feat in winning back-to-back European Championships with a club just two years after promotion to England's top division will never be repeated. Here's the BBC's report.

I anticipate there will be a moment of silence in honor of Clough at today's Liverpool-Manchester United match. In contrast to crowds in the States, where chit chat goes on and mumurs can often be heard, these moments of respect are impeccably observed (typically) in England. What accounts for the difference?
