ITV's legendary football commentator Clive Tyldesley sat down with Off the Ball's Shane Hannon at the Madejski Stadium press gantry in Reading for a wide-ranging career chat.

Next month marks the 20th anniversary of Manchester United's Treble triumph on that famous night in Barcelona - we'll be airing much of that conversation close to the anniversary next month.

Here Tyldesley discusses covering a Brian Clough-led Nottingham Forest in the mid-70s, being in the stadium for the Heysel disaster, and the changing relationship between the media and football managers.

Clive also talked the need for pauses in commentary, lending his voice to video games, racism in football, and a trip to Ballybofey for a Finn Harps v Everton friendly match in the 1980s.
