Brian Clough: Nobody Ever Says Thank You by Jonathan Wilson

"A couple of months before my father dad died, I told him that I'd agreed a deal to write a biography of Brian Clough. His memory had gone by then, but when I asked if he remembered Clough, he looked at me like I was an idiot. 'Of course I do,' he snapped,
and mentioned a hat-trick Clough had scored for Sunderland against Grimsby in 1962. He had no idea what he had for lunch."

--- Jonathan Wilson

That personal and compelling quote set the stage for a brilliant portrayal of a legendary player and coach in English football. This book mines the heart, spirit and soul of Brian Howard Clough. From his childhood in Middlesbrough, to his career-ending injury at Sunderland, to the early days with Derby County at the Baseball Ground, the brief stay at Brighton, and the ill-fated six weeks with Leeds United, to the glory days at Nottingham Forest, Mr. Wilson paints a complete portrait.
