I Believe In Miracles Book.
The remarkable story of Brian Clough's European cup-winning
Author: Daniel Taylor, chief football writer for The
Guardian and The Observer
Foreword by Jose Mourinho
On January 6, 1975, Nottingham Forest were thirteenth in the old
Second Division, five points above the relegation places and
straying dangerously close to establishing a permanent place for
themselves among football's nowhere men.
Within five years Brian Clough had turned an unfashionable and
depressed club into the kings of Europe, beating everyone in
their way and knocking Liverpool off their perch long before Sir
Alex Ferguson and Manchester United had the same idea.
This is the story of the epic five-year journey that saw Forest
complete a real football miracle and Clough brilliantly restore
his reputation after his infamous 44-day spell at Leeds United.
Forest won the First Division championship, two League Cups and
back-to-back European Cups and they did it, incredibly, with
five of the players Clough inherited at a club that was trying
to avoid relegation to the third tier of English football.
I Believe In Miracles accompanies the
critically-acclaimed documentary and DVD of the same name. Based
on exclusive interviews with virtually every member of the
Forest team, it covers the greatest period in Clough's
extraordinary life and brings together the stories of the
unlikely assortment of free transfers, bargain buys, rogues,
misfits and exceptionally gifted footballers who came together
under the most charismatic manager there has ever been.
