Description

Too Good to Be Forgotten is a footballing story viewed through the prism of three remarkable North East men: Brian Clough, Bobby Robson and Lawrie McMenemy. The book revisits ten special years from 1975 to 1985, and examines the idiosyncrasies and striking similarities in these three wise men who made the ordinary become extraordinary.

About the author

Ben Dobson worked with athletes in sport for 32 years and has been a compulsive sports fan for almost half a century. His sports writing has appeared in The Cricketer and other sports outlets. Ben's first book, Chasing Rainbows, is a sideways look at the purgatory which is the lot of the English sports follower, based on his own life experience, asking why well-adjusted adults should let sport take over their lives.
