Product Description

Review

The best book on Brian and Peter together I have read. --Barbara Clough

Even the most casual fan is aware of much of the background, but few have been there and been able to document the story first hand from the very beginning. The book tells us plenty, but it is the new information on Clough and Taylor which will undoubtedly interest the reader most of all, and on that score, they will not be disappointed. --George Matthews, btn magazine

I thought Maurice did an excellent job and told the truth of his many experiences on his long journey. Maurice is quite right that as an agent he probably would have made millions. The building of 2 big/little clubs was especially interesting to me since I also played for Forest and Derby. Clough and Taylor were the best ever and I am sure their success will never be equaled at the Derby and Forest levels with smart signings and bargain basement players who became superstars and won Championships at a time when beating Man.U,Chelsea,Liverpool,Tottenham and Arsenal was just another day in the office. What wonderful days and it was a pleasure for me to be part of it all. Thanks Maurice, you in your own modest, loyal teamplayer style deserve much credit for your outstanding lifetime of dedicated work. A must read for all managers, coaches, players and especially scouts, agents and fans.. They should learn from the master. Again thank you and best wishes from Seattle. Thank you also for the compliments about me as a player. --Alan Hinton, ex Rams and Forest player

About the Author

Maurice Edwards was born in Burton upon Trent in February 1927. Upon the outbreak of World War Two, Maurice volunteered to join the Royal Navy and, following promotion, spent his three-year career aboard an Aircraft Carrier attached to the British Pacific Fleet in the Far East, later joining the Royal Navy Football Squad. After the war Maurice's involvement in football took a remarkable turn. Forced to seek other avenues within the game after his burgeoning football career was halted by injury, he became a local referee and formed a friendship with Peter Taylor, who then paired up with the inimitable Brian Clough. So began a remarkable relationship within the game, with Maurice following the pair to all their various clubs in the role of Chief Scout. Now in his 80s, Maurice continues to work alongside some of football's great personalities, after over 50 years in the game.

This is a great book, written by one of the unsung heroes of football - a man who worked extremely closely with the greatest managerial partnership ever! There's loads that I didn't know about the dealings that went on and the gambling! Would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the Great Man of football.

I was expecting a series of anecdotes and fun revelations about the famous pairing. Unfortunately, these were few and far between. This book is basically a biography of a chief scout - the first 25% of the book is his playing career and struggle to buy a post office, not what I was after. The rest of the book is a meander through a list of some of the authors favourite scouting achievements and Brian and Peter are, frankly, somewhat an after thought. A well intentioned book but it doesn't provide any insight or amazement to an already well stocked topic.

This is a superb book by Maurice Edwards recalling the life and times of Brian Clough & Peter Taylor as their chief scout. There was a lot of stuff that I was totally unaware of before reading the book including a certain link between Peter Taylor and Manchester United. What exactly? Read the book and see.

A lovely change to hear how a modest man can do great and valuable work and unfortunately gain minimum recogniton even from the beneficiaries of all those years of toil.

I have to say what a letdown this book was. While Maurice Edwards seems a totally decent guy and comes over as such, his close proximity to two of the game's greats is barely reflected in the book. I bought this expecting some wonderful insights and behind-the-scenes stuff about Clough and Taylor - but after a while I found myself trudging through mundane accounts of past events with no really new revelations. The title is enticing, but the content is a real case of not doing what it said on the tin. That Maurice was close to these guys is obviously not in question, but as you struggle to get to the end of the book, you can't help thinking it is a fantastic opportunity missed. By the end I honestly didn't feel I knew the two of them any better which was the promise in the title and the whole point of buying it. Good idea - poorly executed.
