Publisher's Summary

In 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 44 days. 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.

    "Awesome marraige of speaker and story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Loved the telling of the tale, the prose (much of it purple), the narrators compelling interpretation and the underlying premise of the book - one of my favorite audible purchases

    "A wonderful story along with a great narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to The Damned Utd the most enjoyable?

    Having read half of the book previously and watching (and enjoying) the film I was looking forward to listening to the abridged version of the book on a long drive from Vancouver to Portland. The story is well digested in it's 4-5 hour timeline and it flows incredibly well. This is no small part due to John Simm who reads the story incredibly well. His accents and narration are well done but neutral enough to not enter the comedic arena that lesser actors could take them too. He reads with passion and enthusiasm and I believe his part of this audiobook promotes it way higher than it might have otherwise.

    I really enjoyed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Simm's portrayal of Clough is excellent.


    What about John Simm’s performance did you like?

    Simm did a really good job. He's added enthusiasm when needed and really made me feel the emotion
