Football fans can experience the chaos of managerial legend Brian Clough’s tumultuous reign at Leeds United, courtesy of an acclaimed play.
The Damned United, follows the enfant terrible of British football, as he tries to redeem his career and reputation by winning the European Cup with his new team, Leeds United – a team he has openly despised for years and whose fans also hate him.
The focus of the play is Clough’s doomed 44-day tenure as manager of Leeds who were the reigning champions of English football and previously managed by Clough’s bitter rival Don Revie, who left to replace Alf Ramsey as England manager.
At the time, the Leeds team had just enjoyed its most successful period ever, using an aggressive and cynical style of football of which Clough had been fiercely critical, preferring the flamboyant style of play which had brought him success at Derby County.
The story, which was also turned into a hit film of the same name starring Michael Sheen, provides an unforgettable insight into the tortured mind of a genius and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football.
