Fry reveals his view on West Ham board

barry-fry-and-david-gold-3694903This week Claret and Hugh associate editor Sean Whetstone spoke to Peterborough Director of Football, Barry Fry about what it is like to be a football manager under David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady. What it is like to be sacked by them and his views of the suitability of Sullivan as a director of football.

Fry explained in the Moore Than Just A Podcast Interview: “I had the best two and a half years of my life, working for them and Karren, they were good, they were hard but they were fair. When I did get the sack, I told them thanks for a wonderful opportunity to manage such a big club like Birmingham City football club.  Those gentlemen and Karren turned that club around completely and took it to a promised land of the Premier League twice. When they took over at West Ham, it was a huge gamble, I think they put £100m in between them, when they got in they found the previous owners had factored the season ticket money for three years so they had little or no income on that side. They have always been in love with West Ham”
