EPL Talk at related • 1 view

It's safe to say that if an average soccer fan were shown a picture of José Mourinho and asked which club he managed, he would know the answer straight away. Same would be said for Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola, or Massimiliano Allegri. Football managers quickly become the "face" of the clubs they lead.

Under the managership of Brian Clough and Peter Taylor, the club was promoted to the First Division in 1969, and they gave a glimpse of what was to come with the first of our six matches, a mauling of Tottenham Hotspur at The Baseball Ground in September 1969.

Clough biographies have tended to be personal recollections by journalists who knew or were used by the great man at the time like Duncan Hamilton or Tony Francis. Wilson is a reporter from Sunderland who now writes for the Guardian and this claims to be the first full biography of Clough from birth to death.

Larry Lloyd's Hard Man: Hard Game is one of the best accounts of Forest's golden years that I have read. I think Lloyd benefits hugely from having a female ghost writer. At the risk of being sexist, it just allows one of the hardest men I have ever met to admit to all sorts of things that I am not sure he would if he'd have played it safe and used a male sports journalist to help him write the book [.

Well, judging by the things people say when they're standing down below me, I reckon the feller who sculpted me must've made a pretty good job of it. Y'see he probably thought to himself, Hmmm, it's Old Big 'Ead I'm working on here and he could've adjusted the sizes accordingly. I'm glad he got it right, even though I have to rely on what people say when they walk past to know whether I'm looking all right or not.

Who will replace Westley?

FC Boro at related • 0 views

As soon as Graham Westley had parked his Bentley into the car park at Deepdale, bookmakers online were offering odds on who will be the next manager to step into the Broadhall Way hotseat. It's arguably the best management position currently on offer in the Football League. Stevenage sit 6th in the League 1 table, are still in the FA Cup and have a squad full of young, hungry players with room to improve even further.

It's a story that has dominated the club over the past 10 days or so. Rumours began flying round that Preston were interested in Graham Westley just a couple of days before the 3rd round FA Cup tie against Reading. At first it just seemed to be rumours. But the rumours didn't stop. Instead, they just gathered pace and it became clear at the beginning of the week that Preston were not only interested in Westley, but that Westley was interested in Preston.
