    Hey Joe,Couldn't agree with you more in your rveeiw.As a Canadian who also loves soccer, Cloughie was such an imposing figure in British Football. One only has to look at the continued struggles of Forest, a team that won the European Cup under Cloughie, yet has recently spent over 10 years out of the top flight of English football.My grampa was a Scouse and I am a Liverpool fan we will always share that fateful day in 1989 Hillsborough with Cloughie and Forest. Regardless, his time with Leeds was (I would venture) the most tumultuous in Cloughie's life, and the movie makers and actors have done an excellent job in capturing the man, even if history was bent a little bit.I also highly recommend this movie!Scott
