Pressestimmen

"'The most extraordinary novel about football yet to appear.' Tim Martin, Independent on Sunday"

Synopsis

Overachieving and eccentric football manager Brian Clough was on his way to take over at the country's most successful, and most reviled, football club: Leeds United, home to a generation of fiercely competitive but ageing players. The battle he'd face there would make or break the club - or him. David Peace's extraordinarily inventive novel tells the story of a world characterised by fear of failure and hunger for success set in the bleak heart of the 1970s.

Format: Taschenbuch
Nein, man kann Brian Clough nicht vorwerfen, dass er sich bei seinem neuen Team einschmeicheln wollte, nachdem er 1974 völlig überraschend den Posten des Cheftrainers bei Leeds United übernommen hatte. Jenem Klub also, der unter Cloughs Vorgänger und Erzfeind Don Revie nahezu alles gewonnen hatte, was es damals im britischen Fußball zu gewinnen gab. Clough empfahl seinen Spielern nämlich als erstes, all ihre Medaillen und Pokale in den "größten Mülleimer, den Ihr finden könnt", zu werfen, denn: "Nichts von dem, was Ihr gewonnen habt, habt Ihr fair gewonnen. Alles, was Ihr erreicht habt, habt Ihr durch gottverdammten Betrug erreicht."

Hierzulande ist der Name Brian Clough nicht mehr allzu vielen Fans geläufig, aber man erinnere sich an Otto Rehhagels Wechsel zum FC Bayern München 1995 und multipliziere die damalige durchaus explosive Situation mit 100. Oder man stelle sich vor, Willi Lemke hätte bei Bayern München die Nachfolge von Uli Hoeneß angetreten. Clough verabscheute Don Revie, seit der ihn bei ihrem ersten Aufeinandertreffen als Trainer - Revie war mit Leeds United zu Gast bei Cloughs damaligem Klub Derby County - wie Luft behandelt hatte. Clough hasste Don Revie, weil Leeds United in seinen Augen unehrlichen Fußball spielte, mit Kickern, die die Schiedsrichter bedrängten, die theatralisch zu Boden gingen, ohne auch nur berührt worden zu sein, die protestierten, wenn es nichts zu protestieren gab und vehement Verwarnungen für ihre Gegenspieler forderten.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Don't let facts get in the way of a great story 4. April 2017
Von The Big F - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A slightly discredited book (author was sued), but still a great read. It's a novel not a documentary and it brings to life Clough and the people in his orbit (most of whom he's trying to shoot down). If the facts aren't all believable, the context is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic Tragedy 12. Januar 2015
Von Lynette McClenaghan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a writer I am interested in the problematic genre of the non-fiction novel. Peace has done a fine job of constructing the contradictory genius of Brian Clough. It is a tragic tale of hubris, power and disaster, worthy of a Greek tragedy. And yes, if you think that's over the top, consider how those archetypal stories play out in modern life. Our knowledge of the glories that await Clough adds poignancy to the story. In addition, the more recent fall of Leeds United into near-oblivion adds that thrill of schadenfreude. Superb characterization, particularly the villains, as well as the main protagonist and the novel's thematic richness, lifts this way above a mere sports story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen "They Love Me For What I'm Not. They Hate Me For What I Am." 8. Februar 2011
Von Matthew Kresal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Having seen the film The Damned United some months back, I was intrigued to read its source material: the novel The Damned Utd by David Peace. Often this can put the reader at a disadvantage because this can leave the reader knowing what's to come in the novel. The Damned Utd though is a much different case though. Even though both as fictional accounts of famed British football (soccer to most of us Americans) manager Brian Clough's 44 day reign over the Leeds United football team in 1974 and the lead up to it, the novel is by its very nature a much different rendition. It is a dark but at times humorous journey into the mind of a flawed sports genius.

Writer David Peace made an unusual choice when writing the novel in that he choose to tell it not from the usual third person perspective but from Clough's point of view. I admit to knowing very little about Clough when I first saw the film version and then started reading the novel so I can not judge the novel version of Clough on its historical accuracy. As a piece of writing though, Peace's version of Clough is a fascinating character. Clough's famous ego is apparent throughout the novel, as is a strong sense of humor, but it is merely a mask. Beneath that mask is a man who feels the need to win and yet is riddled with doubts about his team, his abilities and ultimately himself as a person. As the novel progresses through each of the 44 days Clough spent at Leeds United, that mask slips more and more as Clough tries ever harder to enforce his will on a team he despises. There is also a vengeful side to him as well that drives him and that is initially brought about by his career ending injury when he was still a football player in 1962. These elements threaten to destroy him in the end as they lead him to take on a top rated team he despises without the help on the one man he really needs. While Peace's version of Clough may or may not be accurate, there is no doubt that he has created a fascinating character.

Peace also continuously switches between Clough's 1974 reign at Leeds United and the lead up to it that begins with Clough's 1962 injury. It is through this continuous shifting between time and place that the Clough of the novel comes alive as we discover that it was his need to win, combined with a vengeful spirit brought about by his injury, that drives him. We also, obviously, learn of what finally brought Clough to Leeds. We are also introduced to character's who barely appear in 1974 in person but haunt Clough's thoughts nevertheless. These include his long time assistant and good friend Peter Taylor and Leeds former manager Don Revie, who Clough curses throughout the novel. We also learn of Clough's genius as him and Taylor take low rated teams and builds them up over time to become champions in their own right but, as the novel reveals, his dark side leads him to taking on a job that threatens to destroy him as both plots come to a close at the novel's end.

As a result, The Damned Utd is a fascinating journey into the mind and career of a flawed sports genius: a man who appears to have a large ego and a great sense of humor to the world but is internally a man racked with doubts. It is the story of a man whose demons take him to the pinnacle of professional success yet lead him to throw away his friends and threaten to destroy his life. As I've said I can not judge the novel for its historical accuracy but as a piece of fiction is a compelling read about a man who ultimately comes to realize that in the end "They love me for what I'm not. They hate me for what I am."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Audiobook as performance piece 26. September 2014
Von M. T. Lawrence - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
An audio book is as much a performance as a feat of writing. John Simm's reading makes this a tour de force. For a book that moves back and forth in time, it can a little hard to follow, especially since the clues are based on which soccer team we're talking about (and how many American's have any idea who played for Leeds United in the 1970s?) But Simm's portrayal of football manager Bryan Clough is intense, dark, compelling and sometimes very funny.
