Another Clough Book - Cheapest at mo is Amazon £13.29.

For the very first time, a stunning collection of 150 intimate and revealing stories about Brian Howard Clough. Big names, close friends and confidantes take you into the dressing room, boardroom, players' bar and team bus with their personal recollections of the greatest manager England never had.

They also lead you into Cloughie's office, garden, heart and mind, showing how a raging bull one minute could pay an old lady's shopping bill the next. Laced with pearls and putdowns from Old Big 'Ead himself, highlighting his unique humour and philosophy, this book takes you closer to the real Brian Clough than ever before.

Read first-hand accounts from his big-name players like Peter Shilton, Trevor Francis, Martin O'Neill, Larry Lloyd, Teddy Sheringham and many more along with some lesser known players with tales to tell! Clough's gardener reveals secrets away from the football arena, while Clough's secretary also speaks for the first time. A truly fantastic collection of stories by the people who really did know Cloughie best.

Discover how Clough landed Maradona's signature. Find out why he kicked a Liverpool star up the backside. Read about his astonishing bid to get Elton John. Revealed . . . why he gave his OBE to the gardener and players reveal a boozy night on the eve of a Wembley cup final. Plus 16 pages of colour pictures and a further 16 pages in black and white - many of which have never been seen before.

From the Publisher

Author Dave Armitage got to know Clough personally during his 25 years as a national newspaper football writer in the Midlands. He interviewed Clough at his City Ground office, in a pub garden and in the legend's home. Just as importantly, he moved in circles with the players, staff and friends who really did get up close and personal with the master. Now, he's put together a unique collection of all the stories the players tell about life in the eye of Hurricane Brian. 150 BC takes you behind the scenes to take a glimpse at the person behind the brash image.

What's your favourite Derby County Book ? Mine is The Tin Man - brilliant story.
