We are the Damned United : The Real Story of Brian Clough at Leeds United Paperback
by Phil Rostron
Brian Clough's forty-four-day tenure as manager of Leeds United in 1974 is one of the most infamous episodes in British football history.
While the bestselling "The Damned United" was a fictional account of Clough's short-lived but controversial reign at the club, "We Are the Damned United" reveals the true story, as told by the players he managed at the time.
It includes candid contributions from legendary names such as Peter Lorimer, Eddie Gray and Terry Yorath, who reveal what it was like to make the transition from the relatively smooth management style of Don Revie to a constant crossing of swords with the outspoken Clough, who left the club flailing at the foot of the league upon his premature departure. "We Are the Damned United" tells it how it really was rather than how it might have been.
