Brian Clough was one of Britain's best loved football managers. Hugely talented and always ready with a cutting quip, he was also a man beset by personal demons and alcoholism. This film - based on the best-selling novel by David Peace, the film deals with Clough's catastrophic 44-day stint as manager of Leeds United in 1974, an appointment doomed to failure not least because he had already publicly berated his prospective charges as a "dirty" team. A darkly funny look at a notorious slice of sporting history, Clough here is played by the mercurial Michael Sheen, famous for his portrayal of real people such as former PM Tony Blair and David Frost in the recent Frost/Nixon.

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
