Présentation de l'éditeur

In this first full, critical biography, Jonathan Wilson draws an intimate and powerful portrait of one of England's greatest football managers, Brian Clough, and his right-hand man, Peter Taylor. It was in the unforgiving world of post-war football where their identities and reputations were made - a world where, as Clough and Taylor's mentor Harry Storer once said, 'Nobody ever says thank you.'

Nonetheless, Clough brought the gleam of silverware to the depressed East Midlands of the 1970s. Initial triumph at Derby was followed by a sudden departure and a traumatic 44 days at Leeds. By the end of a frazzled 1974, Clough was set up for life financially, but also hardened to the realities of football. By the time he was at Forest, Clough's mask was almost permanently donned: a persona based on brashness and conflict. Drink fuelled the controversies and the colourful character; it heightened the razor-sharp wit and was a salve for the highs of football that never lasted long enough, and for the lows that inevitably followed. Wilson's account is the definitive portrait of this complex and enduring man.

This does a fairly decent job in providing a summary of Brian Clough's life and career.
His achievements, together with Peter Taylor were truly incredible.

The author can write and he certainly has done a lot of research. I did think he spent too much time in providing details of matches that didn't really matter that much and conversely not enough in describing events that were a lot more important.

At times he seemed to Judge Clough somewhat harshly whilst making allowances for all the other people accused of bribery and bungs etc. An example of this is the European cup semi-final against Juventus or the former Middlesbrough players who went on to serve time for corruption.

He does quite a good job in describing the good and not so good sides of Brian. Though I did think that " Provided you don't kiss me" did a better job in showing how he could be both amazing generous and also an appalling bully.

A biography as close as it can get to the real life of one of the greatest people in football history. No greater compliment to its achievements than presenting him with good and bad, because every man, no matter how great, has also a darker side (sometimes its egotistic decisions and its stuborness led to those moments that placed him in the history of football).

It's hard to think of a parallel personality to Brian Clough (as in rough) in American sports. First he was a child prodigy goal scorer. He was so prolific scoring goals that he became a full fledged English International, just missing out on the 1958 World Cup squad. Even in those early days he had his critics who said he was nothing special, he just scored goals at the detriment of he team (wait, it will get worse).

A sudden injury ended his career. With little education he pursues his next career in club management with a bottom club in the lowest division (with Hartlepools United). And he begins his partnership with Peter Taylor. They achieve promotion in their 2nd season and then everything falls apart in a series of feuds and accusations (a familiar pattern). And it's off to Derby. Under their leadership the team is rebuilt, wins promotion to the First Promotion, wins the Championship, and reaches the Semi Finals of the European Cup (which ends in controversy and a memorable blow up at the Italian Press), before unraveling in accusations and feuds (sound familiar?).

44 Days at Leeds United (without Peter Taylor) and a television feud with former Leeds Boss (and then England National Team Manager) Dan Revie captivates the nation and the infamous British Tabloids. By now Clough has crossed the line into full blown alcoholism. And then after reuniting with Taylor, it's off to Nottingham Forrest where they jump to the First Division and then win back to back European Cups (along with a couple of domestic Cups) before everything falls apart and Forrest is relegated.

What a ride.

Along the way Clough never gets the one jobs he always that he was destined for, the English National team. He never learned that the people he antagonized on the way up, can still be there on the way down, and they often have short memories.

One more reason to recommend this book is that the great Jonathan Wilson wrote the story. There are a number of books on/about "Cloughie" including at least 3 autobiographies but none of them work the way this book does.

I vividly remember sitting in the stands at the great Azteca Stadium at the 1986 World Cup Quarter-finals between England and Argentina (yes, the Hand of God game). Next to me were 2 English fans who had flown over night from London to Miami to Mexico City just to see this game). While the teams were warming up before the match, I asked them a simple question, how did you pronounce his last name? For the next 2 hours they regaled me stories of Cough's career, his feuds, and his larger than life personality. And I thought to myself "this would make a great book." Thanks to Jonathan Wilson, it has.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Too many scores, not enough Brian Clough 7 octobre 2012

Felt like it was written by someone with very little inside knowledge. I don't need to know the score against Southampton on 3 october 1975 or whatever. BC was a special guy - infuriated some, loved by others, but always someone with something to say. Maybe the best manager England never had. But to be honest, you can get better insights on Brian by going to You Tube or Wikipedia.

I feel as if Im hanging on by my fingertips. I like to be right and most of the time I think I am right, but Im not infallible. I constantly doubt my ability to manage. I think its the bloke who doesnt question himself who goes wrong. &quote;

shouldnt take criticism to heart because it was inevitable. Accepting it was part of the job of the manager, and part of the wider notion of courage &quote;
