The Damned United - Win the sports drama about Brian Clough’s doomed tenure of Leeds United on DVD

This competition has now closed.

Sports biopic The Damned United starring Michael Sheen as legendary English football manager Brian Clough comes out on DVD on Monday 31st August. To celebrate the film’s release we’re giving you the chance to win one of 3 copies of the film on DVD.

Adapted for the screen by Peter Morgan (writer of The Queen and Frost/Nixon) from the critically acclaimed novel by David Peace, the film shows what happened when the young Clough takes the plum job of managing reigning League champions Leeds United in 1974. Cocky and ambitious, he is determined to outdo the achievements of his predecessor in the post, his bitter rival Don Revie. Instead, his period in charge lasts a doomed 44 days.

To win a copy of The Damned United on DVD, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, all you have to do is answer the following question:
