Cambridge fan says...

As a Cambridge fan I have been watching the Hereford United story unfold with a degree of "but for the grace of god...". Last time I was critical of the media http://www.herefordt

I'm now turning my criticism to the Trust.
One of the criticisms levelled at the current incumbents of the club is "poor communication" another is "mixed messages", all leading most to draw their own conclusions, and most dangerously, come up with their own conspiracy theories. Well, the trust are just as quiet, aren't they? Where are the statements? Where are the updates? Where are the questions that should be asked on an almost daily basis? Months in and there are more questions than answers, something borne out by the reasons given by those boycotting, I've read about 10 different reasons on the message board alone.
Supporters (and I did when Cambridge were in crisis 9 years ago and minutes from closing) look to the trust for leadership, for dialogue and information. The Trust really does need to step up to the mark and really take the lead.
Furthermore, they may well be handed the baton on 2nd September, particularly regarding the ongoing lease of Edgar Street. I hope they are ready, but my confidence isn't great at the moment.

And don't worry, I am yet to be critical of Those supporting the boycott and those who are not supporting the boycott and of course the current owners (whoever they are). I can't help feeling that nobody is coming out of this with any credit at all.

Cambridge fan ive read both ur statements on two blogs and loved them all..
Im a hereford fan who kept away from the first two matches for respect to the HUST ..But like u say even they have gone quiet now..and the so called protestors have dwindled down to one at saturdays game (But then again no cameras were around..so they wouldnt see there faces in the paper)..
Plus i did see some off those faces that were in the paper at the match saturday shouting support for hereford united as they always did....
So to answer ur question..the only people coming out off this with any credit or dignity are the people who just carried on going to the matches and didnt take sides..As for the owners or protestors..Hang ur heads in shame..uve made a mockery off our club..
