    Sad. Great rivals for many years, and we had some good battles against them. Will always remember that incredible 4-4 draw at the Goldstone in our final season, when we were in a similar situation to the one that they are facing now.
    What goes around eh...

      I wonder whether in a professional sport we need to recognise that history has no monetary value and admit that all clubs are temporary vessels. Orient are hardly the first club to hit the buffers since our troubles. I feel for the fans and trust they will do all that they can, with support from other fans just like we did.

      Have sympathy but still find it hard to understand how any club survives on gates of 1/3000. How on earth can it be justified to have 18 full time players. I think you will find players even in div 2 are on 50000 plus.

      Um, I was actually agreeing with you. To shrewdies like Hearn, the football club is doubtless neither here nor there. Shocking state of affairs but every single ground in the South East is under similar threat. These sharks are all thinking: why have a valuable site for prime real estate that is used less than 20 times a season when you could have a shitty block of shoddily-built profit-generating flats there instead?
      Do you think there is any chance that when Orient fought tooth and nail to share The London Stadium, even prepared to go to court over it, it was only because they wanted to flog Brisbane Road, but they did not get what they wanted, so they are running it into the ground anyway.
      Lots of clubs in the recent past have been threatened but have paid up in time, lets hope this is the case with Orient, if they don't then they obviously don't care and Orient will be gone, Shame, because I have so much time for the small London and Manchester clubs, yes, even Millwall.

      It's hard not to feel sorry for their fans, brings back memories of bad times.

      Will never forgive McGleish though!
      100% spot on with the McGleish quote.
