Deadly Doug by Doug Ellis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Doug Ellis is one of the most controversial characters in football today. The Aston Villa chairman has been at the club for almost forty years, working alongside an astonishing 13 managers - indeed, it was his reputation for sacking coaches that earned him his nickname 'Deadly Doug'. This book certainly doesn't pull any punches as Doug frankly discusses his time at the club, his relationship with managers such as Graham Taylor and David O'Leary and his tempestuous relationship with the Villa fans. It also covers the deeply personal matters such as his recent struggle with cancer and, of course, his recent receipt of an OBE. This is compulsive reading and a must-have book for every football fan.
