I stormed through this book in about three days.

A novelised first-person factually-based account of Brian Clough's 44 day spell in charge of Leeds in 1974, interspersed with a second narrative from the end of his playing days through his rise through Hartlepools and Derby.

A cracking read in a very different style. I'm not usually a reader of football books, but this one was well worth it.

I also read this book recently. Sounds like a torrid time he had at Leeds, he was a twat and so were the Leeds players and staff, not to mention the board of directors. And Cloughie was drunk most of the time too - quite amazing that things like that happen at the very top of the game, shambles is the word that springs to mind.

When I was at University at Leeds, I managed to combine being Drunk all the time IN Leeds.

Does that count?
