Brian Clough famously remarked. "I'm not equipped to manage successfully without Peter Taylor. I am the shop window and he is the goods in the back."
Originally published in 1980, With Clough, By Taylor is the definitive account of the relationship that revolutionised English football and the trade of the football manager.
Outrageously successful and sometimes simply outrageous, Brian Clough and Peter Taylor took over two moribund clubs: Derby County and Nottingham Forest. They went on to win the Football League Championship with each of them, a managerial feat unequalled since before the war.
They were the first to pay £1 million for a player; the first to win two European Cups and two League Cups in successive seasons; and to command such fierce loyalty that the entire Derby County team threatened to strike when they resigned.
This classic insider account shows how the two worked as a pair, complementing each other s individual strengths.
