One of Mike Atherton's 'Top Ten Best Sports Books' in The TimesIn 1974 the brilliant and controversial Brian Clough made perhaps his most eccentric decision: he accepted the Leeds United manager's job. As successor to Don Revie, his bitter adversary, he was to last only 44 days. In one of the most acclaimed novels of this or any other year, David Peace takes us into the mind and thoughts of Ol'Big'Ead himself, and brings vividly to life one of post-war Britain's most complex and fascinating characters.

When Don Revie took over this club, Leeds were a rugby league town. No interest in football. Gates under 10,000. We'd never won a thing. He built one of the great clubs of English football, one of the great teams of English football, from scratch on barren ground from nothing more than spirit and fight and nous, which are the exact same qualities you used at Derby. And out of jealousy, you never tried to understand that. Never tried to make the most of that. Sad. 1974. Brian Clough, the enfant terrible of British football, tries to redeem his managerial career and reputation by winning the European Cup with his new team, Leeds United. The team he has openly despised for years, the team he hates and that hates him. Don Revie's Leeds. A West Yorkshire Playhouse and Red Ladder Theatre Company co-production, adapted from David Peace's ingenious and much-lauded novel, which was subsequently made into a film starring Michael Sheen, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man's ballet. Anders Lustgarten's stage adaptation of David Peace's novel received its world premiere at the West Yorkshire Playhouse on 3 March 2016.

Brian Clough's forty-four-day tenure as manager of Leeds United in 1974 is one of the most infamous episodes in British football history. While the bestselling The Damned United was a fictional account of Clough's short-lived but controversial reign at the club, We Are the Damned United reveals the true story, as told by the players he managed at the time. It includes candid contributions from legendary names such as Peter Lorimer, Eddie Gray and Terry Yorath, who reveal what it was like to make the transition from the relatively smooth management style of Don Revie to a constant crossing of swords with the outspoken Clough, who left the club flailing at the foot of the league upon his premature departure. We Are the Damned United tells it how it really was rather than how it might have been.

En 1974, el brillante y controvertido Brian Clough tomó las riendas como entrenador del Leeds United, que la temporada anterior había ganado la Liga liderado por su anterior Míster, Don Revie, el eterno rival de Clough. El fugaz y fatídico periplo de Clough en el Leeds duraría tan solo cuarenta y cuatro días. El relato intercala estas funestas jornadas con la narración de la trepidante trayectoria de un joven Clough, que, tras sufrir una temprana lesión que lo apartó prematuramente de los terrenos de juego y de dirigir al Hartlepool, logró que un Derby County por el que nadie daba un duro fuera campeón de Segunda División en la temporada 1968-1969 y se coronara campeón de Primera en 1972, gesta que convirtió a Clough y a su segundo entrenador, Peter Taylor, en leyendas. Con una prosa adusta y obsesiva que reinventa el "stream of consciousness" joyceano y bebe del particular estilo de Thomas Bernhard, Peace erige el retrato de un hombre enloquecido por una ambición desmedida, iracundo y crápula, despótico y vengativo, que conmocionó y fascinó a partes iguales a los ingleses desde los banquillos, los platós de televisión y las columnas de la prensa deportiva. A partir de un exhaustivo proceso de documentación, Peace reconstruye en esta sobresaliente obra de ficción documentada algunos de los días más aciagos e intensos del fútbol británico. Maldito United está considerada una de las mejores novelas jamás escritas sobre el fútbol.

"The Damned United tells the confrontational and darkly humorous story of Brian Clough and his doomed 44 day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football; Leeds United. Taking the job without trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor by his side, and with a changing room full of what in his mind were players loyal to his bitter rival Don Revie, would lead to an unheralded examination of Clough's belligerence and brilliance over 44 days. This is that story. The story of The Damned United"--Container.

Analysing David Peace provides an exciting, challenging and accessible critical introduction to the work of contemporary British novelist David Peace. Through a detailed analysis of his writings, as well as the socio-cultural contexts of their production and dissemination, the collection explores Peace’s attempts to capture the sensibilities of late twentieth century society and contributes to an ongoing debate in the media about his representations. Peace is an emerging author who is widely read and taught and whose novels are increasingly celebrated. In the past decade Peace has won the James Tait Black Memorial Award and was named as one of Granta’s Best of Young British Novelists. The four novels of his Red Riding Quartet interrogate British society of the 1970s/80s through the prism of the hunt for the serial killer dubbed the Yorkshire Ripper. GB84 examines the machinations of the 1984–5 UK miners’ strike, while The Damned United explores relationships between masculinity and football through the doomed reign of manager Brian Clough at British football club Leeds United in 1974. In the Tokyo Trilogy, Peace develops an interest in occupation and the occult, interrogating Japan’s post-war legacy of defeat and its resonance to our contemporary world. This collection offers an essential guide to the work of David Peace, as well as a unique insight into his canon to date.
