I’ve just come across the trailer for the film of David Peace’s book “The Damned United”, which was the most memorable book I read last summer. While the portrayal of Brian Clough in the book (and presumably in the film too) has provoked criticism in Derby, I’m certainly looking forward to seeing it, because if nothing else the book was a well written piece of fiction. Or fact. Or faction perhaps?
Good to see the Mayor of Derby backing the Rams tonight for a shock victory against Manchester United. Even more pleasing to see that Barack Obama appears to have taken time out of his busy schedule today to wish Nigel Clough’s men well in the comments section!
10.30pm … oh well, it was fun while it lasted … perhaps on Friday against Forest.
