Margins Book and Music Festival: United vs. Barca - Graham Hunter and Rodge Glass

Sat 25 Feb 2012 | 12 noon - 1.30pm | £3

Football correspondent Graham Hunter and writer Rodge Glass discuss writing about the beautiful game.

Want to know what makes Messi so great? What it’s like to sit in a team talk for the greatest team in the world? Graham Hunter has been Sky’s Spanish football correspondent for the last decade and has had unprecedented access to the rise of the greatest team in current world football, Barcelona – the subject of his new book The Making of The Greatest Team In The World. Their great European rivals, Manchester United, are the subject of Somerset Maugham Prizewinner Rodge Glass’ new novel Bring Me The Head of Ryan Giggs, which tells the tale of a player who manages just one game for the team before his life spirals out of control.

Come and hear Rodge and Graham talk football, writing, and what makes the greatest teams in the world tick.
