Cloughie: Walking On Water

Brian Clough was controversial, outspoken and opinionated, yet he was one of the greatest football managers of all time. He took two lowly, unfashionable Midlands clubs in Derby County and Nottingham Forest, from the Second Division to the very top by winning the League Championship with each club, and also winning two consecutive European Cups with Nottingham Forest, in a feat that will surely never be matched by a club of similar stature.


In this autobiography, Cloughie talks in more detail than ever before about his playing career, where his prolific strike rate as a centre forward for Middlesbrough and Sunderland, with 251 goals in 264 League appearances, puts him in a class of his own. Tragically, injury cut short his playing career, but he went on to even greater achievements as a manager.


He talks with characteristic frankness about why he remains the best manager England never had; his notorious period at Leeds United; his lond-standing partnership with Peter Taylor; and the methods he employed to help blend teams of ageing 'has-beens' and young hopefuls into world-beaters; and looks at how the game has changed over recent years.
