The stature of Brian Clough's achievements, combined with his sheer force of personality established him as the most charismatic character in the history of English football. Alternately infuriating, delightful and illuminating, he was impossible to ignore as he tilted at windmills both real and imagined in a long and chequered career. His outspoken nature fascinated the public, and he was idolised by fans of Derby County and Nottingham Forest, teams he led to huge success. Cloughie defied the odds - his early life could have been deemed tragic, were it not for the fact that he went on to achieve such greatness. With a promising football career cruelly cut short by a horrific injury, he immediately went into management, becoming one of the youngest managers in the football league when he took charge at Hartlepool. This was the start of his rise to the top, which culminated in Nottingham Forest's double European Cup triumphs in 1978-9 and 1979-80. His Way tells Brian Clough's story in detail, drawing on personal memories from the author and others who knew ol' Big 'Ead intimately, to present a complete and incisive portrait of one of the greatest managers in football.
