Description

The inspirational story of Burnley's 2013/14 season, which saw the pre-season relegation favourites - with their tiny budget, threadbare squad and a manager fresh from the scrapheap - win promotion to the Premier League. Fairytales details the management philosophy of Sean Dyche, which enabled a sporting David to compete with the Goliaths.
