You would think he would learn, but oh no he hasn't, and his words yesterday in the Welsh press have come back to haunt him within 24 hours.
One player he was hoping to sign for Cardiff was Remco van der Schaaf, he'd even shown him round their training facilities and shown him the new stadium, and I bet he thought he'd got his man.
Yesterday, speaking to Wales on Sunday, Jones said: "Go back 12 months and compare Cardiff City to a club like Burnley. Given a choice between the two, any potential signing would have gone to Burnley and I couldn't have blamed him.
"But these days I have the tools to show a player around the training ground and I can actually show him the new stadium. I can say, 'There you go' and tell him there is lot more to come. Today, the player is more likely to choose Cardiff."
Today Dave Jones, Remco van der Schaaf signed a three year deal with Burnley.
