Peterborough United's director of football and ex-Southend United manager Barry Fry has decided, for no particular reason, to tell us once again that his club are montoring talented teenager Kane Ferdinand. Fat Fry: 'We do like young, hungry players' The old Judas Barry Fry, Peterborough United's director of football, is up to mischief once again and reminded us very kindly that the Championship club are still keen on Shrimpers midfielder Kane Ferdinand. Nothing new there Baz, as the talented teenager, who can't even be guaranteed to be in the starting line-up against Burton Albion tomorrow, was the subject of a £300,000 bid during the close season which was turned down. The Posh chairman said back in June that they were monitoring the player and for some reason the fatman has decided to put it out there again. What an annoying twat! Fry told www.skysports.com: "He is one that we are keeping an eye on and we've heard great things from our scouts about him. I've spoken to both the manager and chief executive of Southend about him, but their valuation of the lad is much higher than ours. We do like young, hungry players and he is certainly one of those that fits into that category, so we will continue to monitor his progress." He does love the sound of his own voice, especially when there's someone willing to record it down.
