In a bland and sterile sports world where some autobiographies appear when the average sports stars life has hardly begun, I found this a masterpiece. It was refreshing to hear about life as it was from Clough; his personal and family life as richly appreciated by him as the many successes in his career. It revealed a depth to the Clough the manager by being given an insight into his life growing up in the North East. The stories and escapades in the book were a constant source of amusement whether in or out of football. However the book isn't just an account of laddism and laughs. It also charts Clough's attitude to football and his opinions on the players who brought success to Derby County and Notts Forrest. For fans of a certain age, this will be rivetting stuff. For those brought up on Sky hyperbole it may suprise those use to what Clough called 'blackbores.' In summary a classic autobiography which covers all the various touchpoints of Clough's life and will keep anyone from any era entertained.
