Description

An entertaining and powerful narrative of a manager striving to satisfy legions of fanatical supporters and an impatient boardroom. In the white heat of North East football mania, Alan Durban battled to achieve long-term stability and on-field success at Sunderland. Heartbreakingly, his vision of 'tomorrow' would never reach fruition.
