PATRICK BARCLAY

Loving Sport on: Stone & Barclay

A renowned but now (as he frequently reminds us) very much retired sports journalist, Paddy made his name as one of a handful of writers to head up football operations at the Times, Guardian-Observer, Telegraph, and Independent.

With a wealth of knowledge and a bulging contacts book, credits include autobiographies on Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Matt Busby, Jose Mourinho and Herbert Chapman.

Alongside Wayne Barton and Matt Beadle, he’s also produced a series of podcasts, exclusive to Love Sport, on a post-war history of Manchester United.
