NEW Hereford United football consultant Mark Ellis claims he has helped Bournemouth, Sheffield Wednesday and QPR to promotion in the last four seasons.

“In the past four years, I have got promotions with Bournemouth, who I have come to and helped with recruitment; Sheffield Wednesday and QPR last season," he said.

“Four years ago, I was working with a guy who looks after all managers – like Paul Lambert who was at Norwich, Roberto Di Matteo at Chelsea and Sven-Goran Eriksson, who was at Leicester.

“I have been brought in because they all know that I know the best players.”

Ellis has also praised Herefordian Neil Phelps, who is the club’s analyst.

“Neil is a top, top guy, a local man. He was the analyst last year.

“He’s going to be part of it and we are looking to build up his relationship.

“We are not going to be here forever.

“We want someone from Hereford to manage the side one day.”

Ellis added: “I am from the East End and I know how much a club means to a community.

“I can understand all the frustration and anger.

“We are here for the right reasons.

“Forget about all that rubbish that people keep talking about.

“Rome was not built in a day – there are loads and loads of issues.

“My only saving grace is when I come down here to do the coaching.

“We are not here to destroy it – we are here to build it.

“I don’t look back, I only look forwards.

“If you look back you trip over – you have to keep looking forward.”

This is all so much flannel until something happens.

I would love nothing more than for My Agombar to save the club, pay off the debts and return the club to a sound financial footoing and for Ellis to be all he claims he is.

I can't believe that though because I ain't seen any trousers yet..
I hope we're all mistaken but the signs just don't look good and without any communication and action from Mr Agombar i don't know what else they expect us to think.

I have a feeling they will be gone by this time next week when the council refuse to transfer the leases in Monday's meeting.
