In 1974, the brilliant yet controversial soccer coach, Brian Clough, took the reigns as manager of Leeds United, the team that had won the league championship the season before under Don Revie. Clough’s fleeting and fateful time with Leeds wouldn’t last long. This book tells the story of the legendary Clough’s 44 days trying to turn around a corrupt institution without being corrupted himself. With severe and obsessive prose, Peace builds the tale of a man driven insane by boundless ambition. This outstanding piece of documentary fiction brings to life some of the most charged and intense days in British soccer.
