They say Rome wasn't built in a day, but I wasn't on that particular job.

It is probably the best book about football i've read, here's hoping the movie lives up to it.

If the trailer is anything to go by the answer looks like a yes.

The Damned United tells the story of legend Brian Clough's short but eventful spell at the helm of Leeds Utd (at the time, the most hated team in England - ouside of Leeds) in the 1970's. Starring Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, and Jim Broadbent, the film is on release from March 27th.

There's a Facebook page with some choice Cloughie-isms and a few pictures too.
