TALKING BULL – WHO FOLLOWS YAN? – ISSUE 138
In another packed 48-page full colour edition we ask the question what do fans really want to see? We look ahead to who the National League newbies might be – assuming Hereford manage to avoid relegation that is!
We outline the impact the new National League TV streaming service may have, and assess whether it will add any additional revenue to the near-empty Edgar Street coffers.
Some fans are complaining about the flat atmosphere surrounding the stadium on match-days, so we’re endeavouring to find solutions so Hereford supporters can once again be “loud and proud”.
We say so long to Trampas aka Alan Jones as sadly another of the famous FA Cup giantkilling squad has passed away. However, we welcome Sean Lawton as he joins the club on-loan from Crewe, with Simon Wright detailing all there is to know about “Singalong Sean”.
Ruth Walkden has virtually attended every Hereford match this season, so there can be few fans best suited to handing out a plethora of this season’s Football Oscars, with the pie, peas and gravy at Chorley winning in the best food category.
Chris Jones recalls a two-leg Milk Cup victory over Bristol City in 1985 in which the Bulls managed to score 5 goals at Edgar Street – a rare win over the Robins.
We look back at the career of John Motson – who became the 13th man in the Hereford win over Newcastle – with a loving tribute to the famous commentator.
In our Letter from America, Adam Pergament wonders whether Hereford should have brought back the swede worshipping ceremony ahead of the Portsmouth FA Cup tie.
All this and much, much more, including an insight into why play-off positioning matters and we have a special interview with the former Hereford United striker Stuart Fleetwood too.
We really don’t know how we’ve managed to jam so many articles into issue 138. It’s amazing.
The cover price for this absolutely packed 48-page, full-colour edition remains at £3 despite ever-increasing publishing costs, so please grab yours before they run out!
Watch out (and listen out) for our fantastic volunteer team of sellers who will be outside Edgar Street from 1:30pm on Saturday ahead of the Bulls’ National League North match against Boston United.
