 Brian Clough is one of Sunderland’s outstanding goalscorers. With 63 goals from 74 matches his goals per game ratio of 0.85 puts him second behind David Halliday, whose goals came during the much less defensive 1920s.

Goals, goals, goals was what Clough wanted and this book reveals how he got them in a fine Sunderland side that he was leading, after already scoring 24 times, to promotion in 1962-63 when he suffered a Boxing Day injury that effectively ended his playing career.

Having lost him on the pitch, we see how Sunderland then chose to ignore Clough’s genius off it, overlooking his fine record in coaching the Youth side and suffering the consequences ever since.
