Should Cardiff’s Dave Jones Get More Time To Turn It Around?

Getting sacked, it’s what all the cool kids are doing in the Championship these days. If you’re not hanging out on the managerial merry-go-round then you are no one. Peter Taylor, John Gregory, Martin Allen; managers that have all been thought to have quite a bit of talent at one point in their careers. After defeat at home to Wolves, the next man picking up his p45 and muttering about hat he achieved a few years ago could well be Dave ‘same name as David Bowie before he changed it’ Jones.

Leading 2-1 at half-time, Cardiff conduced to lose to a team managed by Mick ‘shove it up your bollix’ McCarthy. Jones was none too happy:

“The players have to stand up and be counted – the defenders have to defend far better and not get out-muscled in certain areas,”

…Jones told BBC Wales before realising this probably wasn’t going to happen and coming up with a much better idea to turn Cardiff’s form around:

“We’ve scored two goals at home and we haven’t won a football match. We go away and score two or three and don’t win. We’ve got to score four goals to win a football match these days.”

Someone’s been spending too much time with Kevin Keegan. But should Cardiff give him more time to spend with his friends and dispense with his services?
