Autobiography Of Barry Fry
Barry Fry is one of the most colourful characters in English football. Currently at Peterborough, his journeyman career has taken him to Old Trafford, where as a player he was one of the original Busby Babes, through to football management at Barnet, Southend and Birmingham, among other clubs. Wherever he goes, "Bazza" has a knack of making the headlines. This book follows his career at different clubs, starting as a youth apprentice for Manchester United, and his off field life as he joined the likes of George Best, Nobby Stiles and Johnny Giles on "a binge of birds, booze and betting". His other clubs included Bolton, Luton, Bedford and Stevenage. His first managerial role was at Dunstable. He followed this with spells at Maidstone and Barnet. It wasn't long before he was poached by Birmingham under owner and ex-pornographer David Sullevan and his glamorous sidekick, Karren Brady - about whom stories in the book will "blow people's minds".
Among others who feature in Barry Fry's all encompassing career in the game are George Graham, Bobby Charlton, Tommy Docherty, Ron Atkinson and Glenn Hoddle. Whether it's tax evasion, fraud, transfer bribes or chicanery in the dressing room, Barry Fry has experienced it all as a player, manager and now club owner. He is ready to tell everything in his autobiography.
