‘The Damned United’ trailer and clips…

Courtesy of HollywoodStreams:

Set in 1960s and 1970s England, tells the story of Brian Cloughs doomed 44 day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football Leeds United.

Previously managed by his bitter rival Don Revie, and on the back of their most successful period ever as a football club, Leeds was perceived by many to represent a new aggressive and cynical style of football – an anathema to the principled yet flamboyant Brian Clough, who had achieved astonishing success as manager of Hartlepool and Derby County building teams in his own vision with trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor.

Taking the Leeds job without Taylor by his side, with a changing room full of what in his mind were still Dons boys, would lead to an unheralded examination of Cloughs belligerence and brilliance over 44 days.
