The Damned Utd by David Peace

Brian Clough’s doomed stint at Leeds United, where he replaced rival manager Don Revie, lasted all of eight matches. Clough had previously criticized both Revie and the Leeds United playing style, ensuring that his appointment was met with consternation among the Leeds players.

In this book, author David Peace writes from Clough’s point of view as he fails to get his players behind him. It’s a brilliant look at one of football’s most outspoken and polarizing managers.
