The South Wales Echo have got it into their heads that Cardiff City manager Dave Jones is a frontrunner to take the vacant managerial position at Championhsip moneybags club Queens Park Rangers.
The R's have been through a catalogue of managers in recent seasons with the likes of Harford, Di Canio, Souza all failing to make the grade. Former Cardiff City midfielder Gareth Ainsworth has also taken over on two occasions.
If the reports are to believed, QPR are considering an approach for Dave Jones, the Bluebirds manager is on a rolling 1 year deal with us and with money likely to pose no object, could be tempted.
Jones has a fiery relationship with the local press, and Echo correspondent David Giles was quick to call for Jones' sacking this week. The already strained relationships have deteriorated further and with an ugly past, Jones may be tempted by a fresh break.
However, Jones and Ridsdale has an excellent rapport. His young family is settled in the Vale of Glamorgan and he certainly sees his role at Cardiff City to be building for the future. WBA came close to tempting Jones to leave, but he remained and took on a larger role in the clubs future by accepting shares in the club.
This seems a highly unlikely move to me, Jones is going nowhere. Not the most popular man at the moment, Jones is mindful that fans are fickle creatures and is a proud and stubborn man. QPR are sure to look for a more high profile manager although do seem to be leaning away from foreign managers with little experience of Championship football.
