Hold the back page! – Football tabloid tales
Skandaler, sladder og sjove historier fra den engelske fodboldverden…..
This is the book that footballers, celebrities and newspaper men across the nation fervently hoped Harry Harris would never write. In this 30-year career as Britain’s foremost Sports reporter, Harry Harris has uncovered numerous headline-making stories, rubbed shoulders with a cast of stars from Abramovich to Zola and unveiled bundles of underhand, behind the scenes goings-on. He exposed Terry Venables’ penchant for taking and making illegal payments, broke the story about Paul Merson’s drink and gambling habits, investigated the Glazer takeover of Manchester United and uncovered the racket in FA Cup tickets.
Now Harry divulges the stories behind those incredible revelations as he delves into his archives to reveal the truth behind hundreds of exposes. The book charts his stormy relationship with former “Mirror” editor, Piers Morgan, discloses revelations about former employer Robert Maxwell and lifts the lid on many of the biggest stories in British sport of the last 30 years.
Harry also tells the often sensational stories of his meetings with Tony Blair, Pele, Sir Alan Sugar, Sir Alex Ferguson, Gordon Ramsay, Alan Shearer, Diego Maradona, David Beckham, Sir Elton John, Gary Lineker, Ron Atkinson, David Mellor, Kevin Keegan and over a hundred more high-profile figures from public and sporting life. This often hilarious book divulges indiscretions and scandal, adds credence to tittle-tattle and sparks gossip about the incredible stories Harry Harris has uncovered in a lifetime as Britain’s leading sports reporter.
