The Damned Utd by David Peace


Love football, though don’t usually read books connected with it as it’s a spectator sport, and most that are published are generic biographies poorly written by a second-rate hack.

Love Nottingham Forest and love the man, Clough, for obvious reasons.

Love the novel inspired by the man and his term at Leeds United. Fantastically written – by a writer – that really gets you inside the head of the character that he’s created.

Great stuff!
