PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

First edition first print hardback of THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Brian Clough (with John Sadler) and published by Partridge Press in 1994. Signed and inscribed to a previous owner by Clough on the title page.

The book is in very good+ condition (blue cloth boards with silver lettering to spine) with some light wear (the slightest bumping to top corners). The book is in a very good clipped dust jacket which has light creasing here and there. Internally the pages are age-tanned towards the edges but are otherwise clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

From the dust jacket blurb:

For the last three decades Brian Clough has been one of the most charismatic managers in football. Funny, outrageous, sentimental, he stands out from the bland men in suits. Though his talent has earned him a fortune, he remains a working-class hero.

As a player 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.

Despite his outgoing nature, Clough has always guarded his privacy. Here he tells 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 wife Barbara, his children, particularly his goal-scoring son Nigel, and his health, which has been the subject of press speculation and concern.


326 pages including Statistics (Playing Career, Managerial Career, Honours) and Index. Illustrated with black & white and colour photographs.
