We are delighted to welcome Patrick Barclay to the store where he will be signing copies of his new book Sir Matt Busby: The Definitive Biography.Sir Matt Busby, the legendary Manchester United manager who saw the team through unprecedented glory, as well as profound tragedy, made the club the global entity it is today. As a League footballer before WWII, Busby remained at the forefront of the game for four decades and made an extraordinary contribution to football. Busby's emphasis on youth, local players, and a passing attack game set a template that turned just another north football club into what is now the worlds greatest football brand.In this definitive biography, Patrick Barclay takes a look back at Busbys phenomenal life and career, including the incredible force of the Busby Babes in the fifties, the tragic Munich air disaster that claimed 23 lives, and Manchester Uniteds historic victory ten years on becoming the first English team to win the European Cup. Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law, Pat Crerand, Nobby Styles and Wilf McGuinness are among the host of witnesses testifying to the qualities that set Sir Matt apart. This is the story of the greatest figure in football history and his legacy, which will live on forever.If you can't make it to the signing but would like to receive a signed/dedicated copy of the book please call us on 020 7220 7882.
