David Peace is our guest on this week's episode of Voices Of Soccer. The author discusses his latest book, "Red Or Dead," which details Bill Shankly's period as manager of Liverpool football club from his appointment in 1959 to his unexpected resignation in 1974.

Host Kartik Krishnaiyer discusses several fascinating topics with Peace including the symmetry between Bill Shankly and the subject of Peace's previous book (Damned United)— Brian Clough.

Watch the Real ‘Damned United’ On Television This Weekend

One of the advantages of the Premier League season starting a week later than some European leagues is that it gives us a chance, for one weekend at least, to watch other leagues that we necessarily wouldn't have as much time for once the season kicks off.

And what better way to spend the weekend by watching the real life drama of The Damned United when Derby County play Leeds United at Elland Road in the Championship?

Video: Why Brian Clough Remains a True Legend in English Football

EPL Talk at related • 1 view

You've see the film The Damned United, or read the book by David Peace that inspired it. The question that remains is, to what extent has the outspoken, charismatic and often times hilarious manager left a lasting impression on you?

For me, Clough embodies what I think of when I imagine English football in the 60's and 70's and he remains a true legend in the game.

Took a few days off with the girlfriend and kids - and while they played in the snow, I thought I'd finish up my stack of David Peace novels - having sailed through the 1974, 1977, 1980 and 1983 Red Riding Quadrilogy I still had The Damned Utd and GB84 to read.
For whatever reason - and I may have mentioned it before - this last couple of years I've become even more nostalgic, I think it's my age.

The Damned United: Dirty, dirty Leeds.

Dirty, dirty Leeds. Dirty fucking Leeds. After reading David Peace's novel The Damned Utd these words cycled through my head for days. They work as an obsessive refrain in Peace's account of Brian Clough's infamous 44 days as the manager of (dirty, dirty) Leeds.

I knew nothing about Clough, Leeds, and this bizarre story before reading Peace's novel.

Dirty, dirty Leeds. Dirty fucking Leeds. After reading David Peace's novel The Damned UTD these words cycled through my head for days. They work as an obsessive refrain in David Peace's account of Brian Clough's infamous 44 days as the manager of (dirty, dirty) Leeds.

I knew nothing about Clough, Leeds, and this bizarre story before reading Peace's novel - that I enjoyed the book, and felt as if Clough himself, in all his puerile genius, had wormed his way into my head is as good a testimony as I can give to the intensity and distinctiveness of Peace's writing.

Earlier this year, we sent Ted Carter to the cinema with a paper bag containing some crab paste sandwiches and a ticket for the movie version of David Peace's 2006 novel, "The Damned United". The film is released on DVD next Monday, so we thought that it was time to revisit this interpretation of Brian Clough's forty-four days at Leeds United.

Does Wenger really rate Southgate?

So Malcolm Crosby believes Arsene Wenger is a fan of Gareth Southgate and the job he is doing:

Arsene Wenger is very complimentary towards Gareth and what he's trying to do and if he thinks that then maybe we're doing something right.

I am personally of the belief that Southgate is a good young coach but that maybe the current Boro job is too much for such an inexperienced manager.

And I enjoyed the book.I'm sorry that the Clough family have been upset but it is, essentially, a fictionalised account of real events involving Brian Clough.

It's a standing joke in the-not-from-LA LA footie community that a bit of rain cancels everything.
The U10 lads dominated my weekend, we lost ignominiously 6-2 on Saturday and then exited the 5 v 5 tourney in the first round. I've heard all the excuses, but we were short two lads in the first half on Saturday, and robbed of 4 minutes playing time in the first of two games on Sunday.

A sudden blow: the great wings beating still
Above the staggering girl, her thighs caressed
By the dark webs, her nape caught in his bill,
He holds her helpless breast upon his breast.

How can those terrified vague fingers push
The feathered glory from her loosening thighs?

The curse of The Damned United has struck again. Johnny Giles, the former Leeds United midfield player, sued the publishers of the acclaimed David Peace novel after being painted in a Machiavellian hue. He won.

Clough's widow, Barbara, was deeply upset by the book, but had no legal recourse given libel laws and the dead.
