Respect to the man.,
This review is from: Clough The Autobiography (Mass Market Paperback)
I enjoyed this book, even though I am a Wolves fan. Mr Clough led a colourful and vibrant life, all of which is reflected in this entertaining read. The stories of how he built up both Derby and Forest were illuminating and funny, especially the Peter Taylor tales that litter the book - ensuring that their split later on comes over as sad and unnecessary. Funnily enough this book has dated a lot - especially regarding gay players, managerial power and, most of all, where player contracts are concerned. I had to laugh when Mr Clough complained about Stuart Pearce wanting a pay rise to £4,000 per week! How on earth would Mr Clough have coped with the sums the players earn today? Lastly this book was a great reminder of how it was once possible for a relatively small club to mix it with the big boys, sadly a time that has gone forever, due to the concept of the Premier league.
