Hold the Back Page: Football's Tabloid Tales

This is the book that footballers, celebrities and newspaper
men across the nation fervently hoped Harry Harris would never write.
In his 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. In this sensational book to be serialised in
the Express Group Newspapers, he reveals exclusively bung revelations about
Bolton manager Sam Allardyce and under-the-counter dealings at Tottenham
Hotspur and Nottingham Forest.
He also tells of how 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 exposés.
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 including how he uncovered the sensational story that the FA were
about to appoint `Big Phil' Scolari to the post of England manager in
succession to Sven-Göran Eriksson. Harry also tells the often sensational
stories of his meetings with Tony Blair, Pelé, 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 has
uncovered in a lifetime as Britain's leading sports reporter.
