Brian Clough's 44-day tenure as manager of Leeds United between July and September 1974 is one of the most infamous episodes in British football history. While the bestselling The Damned United was a fictional account of Clough's short-lived but controversial reign at the club, We are the Damned United reveals the true story, as told by the players he managed at the time.

Vividly recreating the atmosphere of the era, the book features candid contributions from legendary names such as Peter Lorimer, Eddie Gray, Terry Yorath and Duncan McKenzie. They reveal what it was like to make the transition from the relatively smooth management style of former manager Don Revie, who helped the club achieve success in Europe, to a constant crossing of swords with the outspoken Brian Clough, who left the club flailing at the foot of the league upon his premature departure.

This explosive account covers all the drama that ensued from the moment Clough was earmarked by the club directors as the favourite to succeed Revie to his exit less than two months later, saddled with the knowledge that he had been the club's most unsuccessful manager ever.

Told from the perspective of those who experienced Clough's dictatorial managerial methods at Leeds at first hand, We are the Damned United tells it how it really was rather than how it might have been.
