Sam Hammam/QPR? - Passing Reference in The Guardian

Matt Scott/Guardian - "Cardiff welcome change
Cardiff City's head of media has given a colourful account of the difference between his old boss and his new one in his acceptance speech for the "best use of new media" accolade at the Football League awards dinner on Sunday. Julian Jenkins said he welcomed the recent takeover of his club led by Peter Ridsdale, left. In a deal brokered by the former Football League chairman Keith Harris, Ridsdale succeded Hammam at the Bluebirds. Said Jenkins: "We're no longer political prisoners but employees." Quite what that means for QPR, Hammam's next target, is anyone's guess.

What Birmingham co-owner, David Sullivan said of Hammam
Andy Rose, Wales on Sunday
DAVID SULLIVAN has warned Cardiff City that the Premiership does not want them to win promotion....
"I would have to say the Premiership would be very nervous about the behaviour of the Cardiff supporters," said Sullivan.
Everyone used to be frightened of the thought of Millwall going up. They don't want bad behaviour in the Premiership and crowd trouble which is very, very bad for the image of the game.
"I hope if they do go up they really do work on the crowd trouble. It would be fantastic for Cardiff and for Wales and the national side would benefit tremendously.
"But the Premiership clubs see it as a club with a terrible ground and a hooligan element of supporters.
"The Premiership wouldn't be jumping for joy."...
But he points the finger of blame at former owner Sam Hammam who appeared to court some of the hardcore elements at Ninian Park.
"I don't think Sam got on top of the hooligans," said the multi-millionaire.
"It isn't good for a club to have a hooligan element.
"Sam, I think, thought it was a little bit of fun and never really went in strong against them.
"But you have to come out and say 'this is not acceptable in this day and age and if you love the club please don't do it'.
