Could it be Peter Beadle?

Speculation continues on social media over whether the current youth coach will take over at Edgar Street.

Hereford Times: Keith Dodd.

SUPPORTERS’ chief Keith Dodd(above) believes Pete Beadle would be a 'good choice' to be the next manager of Hereford United.

Dodd, the chairman of the Hereford United Independent Supporters’ Association, said Beadle had done an excellent job with the Bulls’ under-18 team this term.

First-team manager Martin Foyle and assistant Andy Porter departed Edgar Street this afternoon after a run of poor results.

Beadle, the former Newport County and Bath City boss, guided United’s youth team to the last 32 of the FA Youth Cup this season.

Dodd said: “I would have thought that Pete Beadle would be a good choice until the end of the season. I know a lot of fans have not been happy with the results of the first-team and there has been frustration with the style of football. Some comments about the fans last Saturday did not go down well.”

Those calling for Colin Addison to return and manage Hereford United will be pleased to know that he is expected to return to the UK from holiday tomorrow.

Hereford Times: Colin Addison turned things around in 1972-3 after a similarly poor start to that campaign as United fans have seen this season.

Excellent.
Foyle wasn't pulling up any trees with his tactics and seemingly coaching ability.
There was a useless plan A and no realistic plan B. He'd taken the club as far as he could..
It's no good saying the players are no good. We know that, we can see it. You play to your strengths and work with what you have.
Foyle's tactics were exposing our weaknesses not playing to our strengths.
Lumping the ball up on Saturday against Hyde with Sharp and Walker up front was an example of tactical ineptitude.
I would have had them playing the ball to feet and using Walker down the right for his pace, with Artus in the middle and Edge not even in the ground.
