Overview

An unlikely mixture qualities combined with sheer force of personality marked Brian Clough out as a truly unique figure in the history of English football. Alternately charming and infuriating, charismatic and ebullient, Cloughie defied the odds at every turn. Players, rivals and officials found him impossible to ignore, as did the media and the general public. His personal charisma and managerial talent were beyond doubt, he led Derby County and Nottingham Forest to domestic and European honours, and was idolised by thousands of fans, but Clough experienced highs and lows in a troubled and complex life. His Way examines Clough's frustration at an early end to a brilliant playing career, his unique partnership with Peter Taylor, failure to land the England manager's job, the quest for the FA Cup, the highly unconventional methods he used to motivate his players, and his sudden decision to retire, right up to his sad death in 2004. Author Patrick Murphy draws on his own memories of the great man and those of Clough's players to present a complete and Incisive portrait of one of the greatest managers in football.
