Narrated by Sean Bean
The noisy, hard-swearing Fry is a man made for television documentary.
We met him previously when he was the manager of Birmingham City.
That ended in his sacking, and he moved to Peterborough. This
film charts his first year in charge. Putting his money into
the club, as well as his non-stop mouth, Fry starts with high
ambitions. Three wins in the first 17 matches scupper both -
and as the team slides farther towards relegation, the dressing-room
dressing downs get fiercer and Fry's language descends from bad
to appalling. But his stoic wife ("my best signing")
and six children provide a domestic respite.
