Has The Spending Stopped?

We do not want to promote Cardiff City at all on this web-site but we have to laugh when news reaches us that maybe Cardiff fans should not believe just everything that they read in the press.
It was some surprise when a call reached JackArmy.net tonight from Cardiff’s supremo Sam Hammam. Why would he want to talk to Swansea fans you ask but that is really a side issue.
Well, in truth he was coming to Swansea to drive round the Gower but when the weather turned against him he decided that the Gower was not quite the route he really wanted to take.
But never one to dismiss an opportunity, we asked him about Bobby Zamora and ‘that’ £2m bid that was put to Brighton. Sam’s Reply? “You shouldn’t necessarily believe everything. Sometimes I enjoy reading the papers just to find out what I am supposed to be doing.”
True, he was interested in bidding for the player and in truth, who wouldn’t be but maybe not quite the figures that have been estimated.
On Cardiff’s other signings over the summer “Maybe I am taking a chance or maybe I know what I am doing, only time will tell. But I believe that in football you have to take that chance. Speculate to Accumulate.”
It hurts to see what Sam is doing at Cardiff while we sit back and trial someone from the league of nations but you have to hand it to him for his honesty. Can you imagine Mr McClure being quite as open and honest to a Cardiff fan?
