Has there ever been a story in English football, and indeed all sport, as incredible as Nottingham Forest's phoenix-like rise to the top of Europe in the late 1970's? In a three year stretch, a team that was languishing in the doldrums of England's second division had become European champions.
Daniel Taylor's 'I Believe In Miracles' is a breathless evocation of '70s football, Nottingham Forest and the genius of Brian Clough. Taylor, the chief football writer of the Guardian, tells the stories of great characters behind that famous team and how they became kings of Europe. He joined the Balls Book club podcast this week to discuss the book, which is the companion piece to Jonny Owen's film of the same name. You can listen to it below.
