Majority of Hereford United fans favour liquidation - poll

Ledbury Reporter: Poll results show Hereford United fans favour liquidation Poll results show Hereford United fans favour liquidation

THE majority of readers taking part in our online poll believe Hereford United should go into liquidation and form a phoenix club run by fans.

A poll on herefordtimes.com, which ran from last Thursday to today, asked people what they would like to see happen to Hereford United following their expulsion from the Conference.

A total of 770 votes were cast, with 500 voting in favour of starting a phoenix club following liquidation.

The option of pooling resources with Westfields and Pegasus Juniors to form a new Hereford City side in the Midland Alliance came second with 140 votes, while throwing support behind new owner Tommy Agombar with the club hopefully in the Southern League being the least popular choice, attracting 130 votes.

Have these people who voted for liquidation and the formation of a Phoenix club considered in which league would we play. Perhaps the West Midlands league if we are very lucky, that's if they will accept us. have they got a vacancy, we could always join the Herefordshire Sunday league. I personally would not make a 250 mile round journey to watch that standard so it would be the end of Hereford United in more that one way for me. I'll still have my memories though. Weren't Hereford United formed from an amalgamation of three clubs? Do I remember that they were once called HEREFORD THISTLE?

In my opinion that must not be allowed to happen. We owe people and companies money, the first priority is to PAY THEM and now.

Where did the amalgamation of the Bulls with either Westfields or Pegasus come from. I bet it wasn't from them. They are both well established clubs and proudly represent this city. I cannot see them wanting to give up their status to join with Hereford United. Noel Watkins will be turning in his grave! I've known Andy since my old Lads Club days and last met him when Westfields played at Gedling Town, I wonder what he is thinking of this idea.

We MUST stop kicking this man in the guts NOW, give him a chance. He must feel like walking away anyway, I hope he doesn't and he carries out his promises. I would rather see us playing in the Southern League than dead and buried.

If "big tommie" doesn't live up to his promises then I apologise to all Bulls fans and I plead with Westfields and Pegasus to let us join them and take them over! (FAT CHANCE).

STILL WAITING FOR SOME GOOD NEWS - PLEASE!!

I agree. There is some unpleasant invective on the fans forums toward the new regime. Totally undeserved as the old regime were mostly to blame. I refuse to believe that ANY football fan would want their club to go into liquidation. At the moment there is still a Hereford United, all right thinking supporters should be pleased at that fact and get behind the club. this poll is being used to stir up divisions between the fans, it was not a truly representative poll, there were only 700 votes, and a lot of them would have been multiple users. The results are now being used to say that 80% of Bulls supporters will not go to home matches next season. This is rubbish, the home attendance will be at least around the 1200 mark, and higher if the team are doing well. Bring on the new season and let's see.
