Description

Any debate about who the greatest British manager of all time must start with Brian Clough, who was able to take two small Midlands clubs - Derby County and Nottingham Forest - to their first-ever championships and then inspire Forest to two successive European Cups. Idiosyncratic and controversial, Clough was the people's choice for the role of England manager, but never got the job. In this account of his life, he reveals how he achieved such results and gives his outspoken views on the state of the modern game, the current crop of managers and much else besides. Also, he talks fully about his battle with alcohol and how he has found a new calm since he retired from management in 1993.

Review quote

Any debate about who is the greatest British manager of all time must start with the controversial, abrasive Brian Clough, who was able to take two small Midlands clubs, Derby County and Nottingham Forest, to their first-ever championships and then inspire Forest to two successive European Cups. Idiosyncratic and combative, Clough was the people's choice for the role of England manager, but never got the job. Now in this fascinating account of his life, he reveals how he achieved such remarkable results and gives his customarily caustic views on the state of the modern game, the current crop of managers, and much else besides. Also, for the first time, he talks fully about his battle with alcohol and how he has found a new calm since he retired from management.
