A no-brainer, really. Peace wrote The Damned United which is IMO excellent AND a tribute to both Clough and that great Leeds team. Defamation cases notwithstanding . . . and fact that both Clough and United had begun their respective declines. Red or Dead is an inside-the-head job on that other great 'manager' Bill Shankly. It stars Shankly, the Spion Kop and t people of Liverpool. Whats not to love? btw, Peace's two Tokyo books are also excellent.
