Publisher's Summary

In 1974 the brilliant and controversial Brian Clough made perhaps his most eccentric decision: he accepted the Leeds United Manager's job. As successor to Don Revie, his bitter adversary, he was to last 44 days. David Peace takes us into the mind and thoughts of Ol' Big 'Ead himself, and brings vividly to life one of post-war Britain's most complex and fascinating characters.

What a Different Story

Not your conventional story telling, but not your normal coach either. Outstanding story, performance, and book!!!

What would have made The Damned Utd better?

Not jumping all over the place timeline-wise. Story line was rather hard to follow.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Simm?

Narrator was good. I just hated the book itself.

Any additional comments?

Clough was an embittered, whiny bitch. The whole time he cusses and yells at the people around him, and constantly tells us his hatred for Don Revis. I got sick of it and couldn't finish this piece of crap book. If I owned the physical copy I would go burn it in a dumpster right now.
