The Damned Utd read by John Simm

In 1974 the brilliant and controversial Brian Clough accepted the Leeds United Manager’s job: he was to last only 44 days. In one of the most acclaimed novels of this or any other year, David Peace takes us into the mind and thoughts of Ol’ Big `Ead himself, and brings vividly to life one of post-war Britain’s most complex and fascinating characters.
