'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ridsdale Is 'Tight As a Frog's Arse' !!!

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has been reasonably understanding of the Bluebirds` debt situation and always appears to have an excellent working relationship with Chairman Peter Ridsdale. However, Jones has revealed his boss to be a changed man following the bankruptcy and demise of Leeds United when Ridsdale and others were culpable of grossly overspending and mis-managing club budgets.

Dave Jones told the Daily Mail:

'Big club? We're trying to get to be a big club. But we can't even get a loan player now because we're at our wage limit."

'Peter may be on his own crusade to right what people think he did wrong at Leeds - and what he has done here is phenomenal - but I said to him the other night, "you gave your last managers at Leeds millions upon millions and you won't give me two bob."

"He's as tight as a frog's arse!'


In the eyes of most Cardiff City fans, Peter Ridsdale has performed little short of a miracle in keeping the club going - and has been working tirelessly to attract funding, one potential investment in advanced negotiations from Malaysian mogul Dato Chan. Ridsdale has a savvy media head, and talks a good game - some doubts remain as to the clarity of our situation and of course, he has been handsomely paid for his efforts.

Dave Jones has never been one for airing club matters in public, it remains to be seen how his boss will take to this latest, and fairly obscure insult !
