Doug Ellis is one of the most controversial characters in football today.


Over his 36 years in charge at Aton Villa, he has worked with thirteen managers and it was his reputation for sacking coaches that earned him his nickname ‘Deadly Doug’. Those brave enough to enter his office at Villa Park are greeted with a plaque, warning: ‘Beware, my mood is subject to change…’

A must-read for any football fan, it reveals what makes one of the game’s most talked-about names really tick.
