- Brian Clough autobiographyAnyone ever read these?
I'd avoid if possible, made some very nasty comments towards Liverpool fans regarding Hillsborough.
At the moment I'm reading Steppenwolf, by Herman Hesse. Not finished yet but love it already.
I want to cancell the order but I dunno if I can... maybe get Hansen's autobiography instead.
Good luck, but I don't think they'll let you cancel.
Problem with Clough was that he became a parody of himself in his later years. No offence but he was rather pathetic in the end getting the club he is hailed at, Nottingham Foret relegated and all. Sad decline of a man who was still stuck in the 1970s.
Cell - Stephen Kingamazing
'Manchild in the Promised Land' - Claude Brown.Shockingly true account of Claudes own life growing up in Harlem in the late 40s and 50s. This kid was commiting robberies, drinking, smoking weed, f**king girls - all before he even hit high school age. Truly great read if you wanna hear an honest account of growing up in an area like Harlem. The fact he got out of it is pretty great as well.
Very much worth a read, it was just one of the choices for my class but I liked it so much im gonna keep it and read it again in the future. Just so shockingly eye-opening of a kid from a real young age growing up in Harlem.
In terms of Liverpool and football - 44 Years With The Same Bird is a fantastic read.
Any recomendations on books about Bill Shankly? I'm looking for one but I dont know which one to buy, there are quite a few.
The one by the man himself would be a good bet I think? Meant to get it myself.
He never wrote an autobiography though, but there's one biography which is the only one he authorised while still alive. Maybe that's the one you're talking about, I'm thinking of buying it but there are so many others that I'm still not sure
Yeah, book shopping is hard - I spend more time deciding what to buy than actually reading!
Yeah that's the one, the reviews I read made it sound like it was written by him! Bas**rds
