Clough: A Biography by Tony Francis

Brian Clough is no ordinary football manager. He has walked on water at Nottingham Forest and through hellfire at one or two other clubs without once conceding an inch to anybody. Even his enemies are mesmerized. Tony Francis has talked at length to more than 200 people about Clough, including former partner Peter Taylor and his current chairman Fred Reacher. Why, despite his television attacks on his own supporters, did he remain his people's choice as England manager for so long?. What is the Trent Enders view of the man they used to worship whose behaviour gets stranger and stranger and whose bloated face turns even more purple? Why did Fred Reacher feel he has to issue him a warning? This book traces Clough's life from early Middlesbrough days and the knee injury that crippled him as a centre forward to the outspoken Hartlepeool manager who toppled the chairman, the idolized Derby manager who resigned on the eve of glory, the Leeds manager who told Revie's men they had won all their trophies by cheating and the triumphant Nottingham Forrest manager who took his team from nowhere to the peak of Europe and seemingly back down again.
