This book tells the story of English football between 1975 and 1985, as viewed through the prism of three remarkable men: Brian Clough, Bobby Robson and Lawrie McMenemy. This ten year spell was the last sustained period in which the hegemony of the major big-city football clubs was challenged and, at times, usurped, and this book examines the idiosyncrasies and striking similarities in these three wise men of the North East as well as looking at how they made the extraordinary become ordinary at their unfashionable, provincial clubs. Published in 2024.
