Présentation de l'éditeur

For the last three decades Brian Clough has been the most charismatic manager in football. Funny, outrageous, sentimental, he stands out sharply from the bland men in suits. Though his talent has earned him a fortune, he remains a working-class hero. As a player he was one of the most gifted forwards of his day. He scored 251 goals in 274 League appearances - and would have scored more had a cruel injury not forced him to retire.

As a manager his record was full of superlatives. He took both Derby County and then Nottingham Forest out of the doldrums of the Second Division and made them world-beaters. Tactically brilliant, Clough had an unmatched ability to motivate players. He is the best manager England never had. Behind his back, they call him Old Big 'Ead. He has never been far from controversy, and some of his rows, particularly with his long-standing managerial partner Peter Taylor, are the stuff of tabloid legend. Not so long ago he was televised running onto the pitch to wallop some unruly supporters. More recently he has taken legal advice to counter rumours about illegal ticket deals. Dull he isn't. Despite his outgoing nature, Clough has always guarded his privacy. At last he has decided to tell his full story: from terraced council house in Middlesbrough, to luxurious mansion in an exclusive suburb of Derby; from fitter to socialist millionaire. He speaks of the influence of his strong, proud mother, his courtship and marriage to his glamorous wife Barbara, his children, particularly his goal-scoring son Nigel, and his health, which has been the subject of press speculation and concern. This is an extraordinary life, told by an extraordinary man.

Biographie de l'auteur

Brian Clough was born in 1935. He made his League début for Middlesbrough in 1955. In 1961 a knee injury forced him to hang up his boots. Despite a remarkable goal-scoring record, he gained only two England caps. He began his managerial career with Fourth Division Hartlepool, where he was joined by his long-standing partner Peter Taylor. Together they built a squad that won promotion at the end of the 1967-68 season. By then Clough had moved on to Second Division Derby County. Under his guidance Derby were promoted to the First Division in 1969 and won the League Championship three years later. He left Derby following a very public dispute with the chairman. After brief spells with Brighton and Leeds, Clough became manager of Nottingham Forest in 1975. In 1977 Forest won promotion from the Second Division; in 1978 they won both the League Championship and the League Cup, which they won again in 1979, 1989 and 1990; in 1979 they won the European Cup, a title they retained in 1980. Clough is only the second man ever to have guided two different teams to the League Championship. In 1993 he retired, amidst press speculation about his health and business affairs.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 It was just as I imagined it would be 19 octobre 2000

A good read from old "big mouth". He comes across as the arrogant, self confident, single minded man that made him a great manager and great entertainment.
One of the best football autobiographies I've read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 For soccer fans everywhere! 11 février 2010
Par David Stevens - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Whether you play, coach,referee or are just a fan of soccer, this book is a must read. It takes you from his playing days to his foray into coaching carrying a tin of paint at Hartlepool to "spruce the club up" to his wildly successful campaigns into European football eventually winning everything. His story telling, personality and humour are contagious. Once I'd received the book from Amazon in a very timely manner, I couldn't put it down. Enjoy.

Partridge-esque in that he's not far off ending each paragraph with "Needless to say I had the last laugh". The positivity of his fond childhood memories and those of his courtship with his wife are outweighed by spiteful tales of one-upmanship told with a know-it-all arrogance. The lack of any humility can make it a tough read at times as the story skims from one controversial incident to the next. For a significant period Clough was a serial winner but it's difficult to root for him here.

This is simply old big head at his honest best. Self critical, honestly critical of others and called it as he saw it. A great inside to the world of football as it was in the honest days of football. A compelling read for any Football fan, especially those born in the 60's or earlier.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent story of one of the greatest British managers! 10 octobre 2013

Great story about one of the best ever managers. Clough was way ahead of his time and, personally, I thought he was very refreshing in his views and management style - probably would not work these days with all the prima donna Premiership players these days though.
