Former Hereford United player Rob Purdie continues to live and work in the city and is watching with interest what is happening at Edgar Street.
"I look at it from both sides," Purdie told BBC Hereford and Worcester.
"I'm currently a football creditor but at the same time I'm a Hereford fan.
"I want to the football club to be there.
"Not one of the player's animousity is towards the club or the fans, it is towards another part of it.
"It's disappointing to see because you look where Hereford were five or six years ago and where Hereford deserve to be, a League Two football club.
"Then all of a sudden there might not be a football club.
"We just hope it will get sorted this week."
Purdie was asked how it had gone wrong.
"There were too many contracts given in League Two which were for too much money.
"Even if Hereford had stayed in League Two those type of contracts couldn't have continued.
"And then when they gave out two year contracts with no relegation clauses, then we had a season in the Conference with people on good League Two wages. Very very good League Two wages for some of them.
"It wasn't just going down, it was the contracts.
"It was a very different senario when I was here with Graham Turner in League Two.
"The wages were probably half what they were under David Keyte.
"That was the start of it all."
