HEREFORD United's advisor Joel Nathan has revealed that the club appointed ground safety experts - at midnight last night.

Nathan stated that the meeting with Herefordshire Council officials this afternoon was adjourned at the club's request.

"The company who will be advising us on ground safety was only appointed at midnight last night," Nathan told the Hereford Times this evening.

"So the meeting today was postponed until Thursday so that they could have a good look around and ensure that everything that needed to be done was done.

"The club fully expects that everything will be passed on Thursday to allow Saturday's game with St Neots to take place."

United have had more than a month to sort out their new ground safety certificate.

And yesterday afternoon, United chairman Andy Lonsdale told the Hereford Times: "We don’t know what decision the council will be making – no-one can predict what their decision will be. As far as we know, it’s all speculation and we have done all we can.”

They appointed someone on the day they were being inspected? And with only a few days until the season starts? They have known about it for weeks; this really is beyond incompetence.

This is now beyond silliness. Talk about the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. One minute Lonsdale is saying "we've done everything we can" and then we find out from his partner in crime, we asked to delay the meeting because we haven't done all we should. It's like watching a group of teenagers badly muddle through a business studies course without a teachers guidance. Although I know more teenagers to demonstrate common sense.

To be enlightened to the fact that there are still unpaid wages and the young lady who has still not been paid her maternity pay......is disgusting and can only be justified if the club doesn't exist anymore.

More research into these characters also reveal a shady past. But everyone deserves a second chance? Well they appear to be blowing it

Cowboys? If so where's the sherif?

The more qualified candidates who are available, the more likely the compromise will be on the candidate whose main qualification is a non-threatening incompetence.

Any chance the safety appointees were Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight from Midnight Cowboy?
