To be honest, most of us rarely bother to look at who the sports news and match reports are written by as we idly flick through the back pages of the national papers so here are three of the names and faces behind some of the most widely-acclaimed football coverage in print.
Henry Winter (Telegraph)
Henry not only writes for the Daily Telegraph but can often be heard taking part in Radio Five Live’s football discussions. He used to write for Four Four Two and ghost-wrote the autobiography of Steven Gerrard.
Will always have a place in the annals of sports reporting history as the man whose interview brought down Glenn Hoddle ending his reign as England boss. In a routine interview with The Times Chief Football Correspondent, Hoddle talked himself out of the job in February 1999 by making remarks about disabled people being punished for having bad karma leftover from previous life.
His column is one of the highlights of The Times sports section.
Sean is the Guardian’s Sports Editor and has written for the paper for over a decade now. His World Cup blog is well worth a read as one of the most comprehensive and informative that I’ve seen. He set up the Guardian’s hilarious weekly football podcast where his extensive and rather unconvincing analogies bring tears to the eyes of presenters and listeners alike.
