The Halcyon Podcast Episode 14 - Patrick Barclay

Adam and Rob are joined by the legendary Patrick Barclay for a joyful journey down memory lane to the famed Dundee side of the early 1960s.

Paddy talks to us about how he first fell for football at Dens Park and both the famous title win of '62 and subsequent European Cup campaign, back when the European Cup was for champions ONLY.

We also talk to Paddy about his illustrious career in football writing, including the dread of the Saturday match report, pretending to be a player at the world's greatest stadia and even getting on the pitch at some of them (and then quickly off again).

Paddy also shares his proudest by-lines with us and has some unexpected advice on the best way to extricate yourself from precarious situations in Medellin, the murder capital of the world.

To read Paddy's outstanding chapter alongside 22 others, why not get yourself a copy of Jaws of Victory? And as ever, you can get in touch with us on Twitter @HalcyonPublish1 or @magicspongers.
