  1. I hate to say it but I think everything points to a mild, wet and windy winter
  2. A 2-0 defeat for Hereford at Stourport last night has certainly brought things down to earth with a bump. Still Stourport had a record crowd of over 1,000 thanks to the 900 travelling Hereford fans!
  3. Good start for Hereford FC. A 4-1 win in front of a crowd of 4060. The next biggest crowd in the league was 130!!
  4. It's quiet in here today. I though quite a few people would have posted about the dire conditions across South Wales at the moment. It's like the middle of November in Cardiff at the moment. Cold, wet and windy
  5. I have seen pink lightning, but was sheet lightning not fork. I thought at the time it may have been something to do with the light bending around the hills where the strikes were occurring at the time.
  6. And what a day at Edgar Street it was. A 1-0 win for Hereford against a side that will be playing 3 divisions higher than us this coming season. A crowd of over 4000 for a non league Pre season friendly shows that both sides have big things coming. FC United brought around 500 fans. The general feeling around the place is one of pure optimism and something I hadn't felt in the previous 30 years of supporting Hereford United. Can't wait for next Saturdays game against Merthyr Town
  7. Hi Dave, I only moved to Merthyr 5 years ago, but I did watch their 9-0 victory against Bishops Cleeve to win the title last season. I don't get to watch the Bulls much these days, I used to live in Abergavenny which was much closer and used to go to most home games for about 25 years. I am looking forward to next weekend when Hereford play Merthyr Town in Merthyr. Split loyalties? Nope, I'm a Bull through and through
  8. Phoenix club v Protest club this Saturday as Hereford play FC United. Nearly 5000 tickets sold. It'll be an emotional afternoon at Edgar Street
  9. My point is that it is a huge achievement for Wales to qualify with the limited resources and pool of players that we have. We have always had some very good players (we probably had the deadliest strike force in Europe in the late 80s and early 90s (Hughes, Rush, Saunders) but a shoddy midfield and defence. Now we have a very strong midfield and defence but lack firepower. Luckily Bale does score some goals, but we lack a predator up front to make us a genuine dangerous team. It's always going to be difficult for Wales to qualify. Due to our previous results we were always put in pot 3 or 4 for draws so were always going to end up playing much tougher teams thus making it harder to qualify. Thankfully for the World Cup draw we will be in Pot 1 so will avoid the big boys of Europe so should make qualifying easier for the World Cup as well.
  10. Really don't know what Cheeky Monkey is on about but you can't please everyone I've only just recovered from Friday night. To beat the 2nd ranked team in the world (even if the ranking system is rubbish) is quite unbelievable. Bale and Ramsey are world class but I think we have to mention the defence. Williams is a rock and Gunter always seems to raise his game for Wales. Not booking next years summer holiday just yet but a flick through the brochures might just be worth my while (if Mrs Trickster lets me)
  11. So it's the West Midland Premier Division (Tier 9) for Hereford FC. With Edgar Street open with a 5000 capacity and season tickets nearing 800 so far, things are already looking rosy for the new club. Onward and upward
  12. I was there to watch the 9-0 win. It was emphatic but they also did it in a style of football that was good to watch. Over 1500 at the game as well and with big redevelopment plans on their way, Penydarren Park should become a much better stadium (bit run down at the moment). Merthyr should continue to rise into the Conference South within a couple of seasons and who knows what from there.
  13. Has been snowing/hailing off and on all morning in central Cardiff and looking at radar there is plenty more to come
  14. Good to see that it looks like football will return to Hereford next season. Hereford F.C. are in the process of being formed with the final details of Edgar Street being leased to the club being finalised. What division they will start in is anyones guess though. I would imagine something like the West Midlands Premier is realistic. I do think the club will come back a lot stronger than Hereford United. United were bled dry and left to hang by fraudsters who ended up with nothing. Hereford F.C. will be owned by the supporters trust and will be in safe hands.
