Product Details


“The greatest novel on English football.”
The Millions

“If there’s one sports novel you should read, it’s probably The Damned Utd . . . a meticulous, if fictional, reconstruction of a crucial period in the career of one of European soccer’s most brilliant and fascinating figures . . . one of the most insightful portrayals ever put to print of the insecurity, pride, and vanity that make up the greater part of nearly any successful coach’s character.”

“Probably the best novel ever written about sport.” 
The Times (UK)

“Fascinating . . . Brilliant.”
The Guardian

The Damned Utd isn’t good, it’s brilliant. Vivid . . . compelling . . . as the reader, you are swept along. It is quite an achievement.”
The Scotsman

“The most extraordinary novel about football yet to appear.” 
Independent on Sunday

“The book that brought the legend back to life.” 
The Observer

“Shakespearean in its scale, ambition, depth and elements of tragedy, farce and betrayal.”

“Now this, young man, is what you call an exceptional . . . book, as bold, brilliant and unconventional as Brian Clough himself, whose voice is vividly brought back to life . . . It is a great story grippingly revived.”
The Times
