    There have been many excellent books about Brian Clough but far too few about fellow Middlesbrough born rival manager Don Revie Roger Hermiston explores the backgrounds and extraordinary careers and tries to get to the heart of one of the great football rivalries In doing so he has to look closely at a third major character Middlesbrough This is a fascinating exploration of post war Middlesbrough the struggles and strife that acted upon these two incredibly successful men It was from Middlesbrough that many of their ideas and some of the financial insecurities were born that haunted them And it was from Middlesbrough that they needed to escapeI live roughly in between the boyhood homes of Clough and Revie and on the site of the football ground where they both watched their early heroes play and where Cloughie became a scoring legend Through Roger's book I have a far better impression of what made them tick and what drove them on to achieve He takes on the pages at the pace of a Clough shot for goal or barbed tv riposte but I found it as attractive and inviting to read as the Revie plan false number nine or a Cloughie Forest sideWe can now view Revie's achievement in creating a top club at Leeds alongside that of Clough and Taylor at Derby and Nottingham Forest Dirty Leeds did become the top team at the end of the decade no matter what Mr Clough might have tried to tell everyone that would listen to himA better insight into the age of the great personality managers I do not know This is something that is exposed so richly in that amazing head to head on Calendar Yorkshire TV There is a blue plaque on the house where the Clough family once lived and a statue of the boy Brian walking through the park Roger's book of 2011 is hopefully the start of a long game to get equal recognition for Don Revie and start to revive the reputation again of the boy that kicked a ball all day and night to escape from the sadness and loneliness at the early death of his motherBrian might not have liked it but hopefully one day there will be a blue plaque on his old house as wellGreat read
