Clough story wins Sports Book of the Year 2007

Brian Clough.
"Provided you don't kiss me: Twenty years with Brian Clough" has scooped the prestigious William Hill Sports Book of the Year award, beating off five shortlisted challengers.

Duncan Hamilton's fly-on-the-wall account of England's most remarkable coach becomes the fifth book about football to win the accolade in its 19-year history, joining classics such as Nick Hornby's 'Fever Pitch', Simon Kuper's 'Football against the Enemy', Tom Bower's 'Broken Dreams' and Gary Imlach's 'My Father and other working-class football heroes'.

Soccerphile sat down with Hamilton earlier in the year to discuss his remarkable book. Read the interview in full here
