Storyline

Taking over England's top football club Leeds United, previously successful manager Brian Clough's abrasive approach and his clear dislike of the players' dirty style of play make it certain there is going to be friction. Glimpses of his earlier career help explain both his hostility to previous manager Don Revie and how much he is missing right-hand man Peter Taylor who has loyally stayed with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Damn United is a presentation of a look at Brian Clough's 44-day reign as the coach of Leeds United. Unfortunately football has been poorly served by the cinema. The Damned United does a good job to change that. But The Damn United is not a film about football either; it just uses it as a frame for ambitions, success and failure, friendship and love. Download The Damn United to see what the football world is.

This is primarily a psychological film. A genius needs support and anchoring and goes amiss if he loses it. Michael Sheen is superb as always as the brilliant but irascible Brian Clough.

Brian Clough's 44 days at Leeds United03 September 2009

This movie focues on Clough's 44 days as manager of Leeds United, it shows Clough to be a megalamanic, obsesed by his dislike of Leeds United's style of football as well as the manager he succdeded Don Revie.

It's also a movie that shows his partnership with Peter Taylor and how without Taylor... more
