Barry Fry tells all on the Jannai Gordon affair

MoorethanExciting Irons teenage striker Jannai Gordon has been given no chance to develop at West Ham and the man who sold him to the Irons reckons much of that is down to Sam Allardyce.

Outspoken Barry Fry has told the ClaretandHugh interview section of MooreThanJustAPodcast that the Hammers have a serious talent on their hands and tells the truth of what went on behind the scenes as the on/off transfer faltered before being resurrected.

He explains how he and David Sullivan did a deal which was all but torn up by the previous manager against the advice of his management team.

Fry also tells Hammers fans that they should give thanks all day long that the Davids have taken control of the club declaring: “The are knowledgeable people who absolutely love the Hammers. It was the only club they really wanted – they love the place.

“They are great great people to work for me. It as 20 years ago they sacked me but have become my closest friends who have done me many favours.

“They treat me like a king when I go to Upton Park or their house parties. They are two really great guys who have taken the club from the brink of receivership to where it is now.

“They had a dream transfer window last summer and that is a club which is really going places under the Davids and Karren (Brady).
