Disrepute: Revie's England

A mixture of fact and fiction, like Endeacott's earlier work Dirty Leeds in particular, Disrepute follows the (mis)fortunes of Don Revie as he takes charge of the England national football team.


It's July 4th, 1974: Don Revie decided to leave Leeds United to take over the England job from the sacked Sir Alf Ramsey. His departure upset many while his England appointment was hardly met with universal approval either. Already with a long list of enemies including the FA, the Football League and the media, managing the national team put him directly in the firing line. His aim was to restore the nation's team to its former heights, win over the fans, the doubters and the cynics...but he'd bitten off more than anyone could chew. The odds were too great: the players, the tactics, the notorious dossiers, money, the mystery, the mayhem and the controversy meant that Revie's dream was over in three unimpressive years. Using explosively revealing and previously unpublished material written by the man himself, "DisRepute" is the true fictionalised account of Revie's England.
