Cardiff to sack Dave Jones? We’ll soon find out

Dave Jones, where did it all go wrong? Was it the star signings? Was it Peter Risdale? Was it luck, or lack of it? Probably just your defence that can’t go ten minutes without laying on a chance even Dirk Kuyt might tuck away. And now you are going to be the 45th manager to be sacked in the Championship this year. Look:

Cardiff City hierarchy are to decide the fate of under-fire manager Dave Jones in the next 48 hours.

That means sacked in media-ese by the way.

“I expect to make a formal statement about the situation here within the next couple of days,” said Ridsdale.

That means “we have to work out a pay off” in chairman-ese. And Jones said:

“I believe in my ability to turn it around, I’ll just get on with it,”

And that means you will have to pay big if you want to get rid of me in manager-ese. It’s become a second language in the Championship these days.

So, is this fair? Jones is a damn good manager, he’d turn it round given time, wouldn’t he?
