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.

    " ok would be the best way to describe it. too many long narratives taken directly from interviews or clippings from newspapers from the time. overall it keeps the author's opinion out, but it can make for some jumping around and boring reading after hearing gordon mcqueen go on and on... "

    " the style is clever, written as if we're listening to Clough's internal monologue, depicting his passion for the game, his ambitions and frustrations. The repetitive style of his inner thoughts grip at the start and then, for me, just got on my nerves. "
