The Damned United

Loving David Peace's 'The Damned United'. Unputdownable is the phrase I believe.
Essentially a biog of the late great Brian Clough, famously the gratest manager England never had, in the form of a stream of conciousness from the mind of Cloughie
during his ill-fated 44 day stint as Leeds boss in the early 70s and reflections on his rise to the top in the decade that preceded. Dark and menacing in tone
it's is like a 'Heart of Darkness' in the world of football.
bonus: its on the 3 for 2 table, too.
