If WHU are allowed unfettered access to the OS, then we either (1) stay in Leyton and go bust in 5-10 years as a League club, and become a non-league club (2) move to the outskirts of London, and ply our trade there. Maybe this is the better solution.
Whatever happens, what I dislike most of all about this, is that I as a tax payer, have contributed to this stadium, and which is now being given for chicken feed rent to WHU, leading to the ultimate demise of my team. Where there is a very strong whiff of corruption, you normally do not have to dig too deep to find the source of the stench. I think we all know where that is coming from.

Being an optimist, I think the House of Lords may be more sympathetic to Orient regarding the "Legacy" issue and I sincerely hope that at the very least, Orient may extract some compensation from the Premiership/Football League if all else fails.
It really needs EVERY TRUE SUPPORTER of not just the O's, but EVERY FOOTBALL LEAGUE CLUB and perhaps at least some PREMIERSHIP CLUBS, voicing their opinion as to the whole decision making process in this fiasco, by writing to their MP.
If you had a million plus fans saying "this is ridiculous, why can't the O's share the stadium", something would be done.
It needs someone (or a group) to post messages on ALL CLUB/other forums explaining factually what has happened and the relevant issues- very time consuming but probable highly worthwhile.
Widespread publicity is what is needed - anyone fancy doing a tight-rope walk from one side of the OS to t'other ! Now that would get some coverage . . . . especially if the poor chap fell off whilst being videoed live by News at Ten !
Of course, he would have a fast opening parachute to save him . . . or her.
I have a wonderful optimistic imagination and outlook to life.
However good things are . . . . they could always be better.
However bad things are . . . . they could always be worse !

Anyone of the same opinion as me, that the whole process in this country with regard to the OS stinks of corruption?
First thought in my mind when I heard about it today.I think I would have been more shocked if it went the other way to be honest.
And that WHU lawyer,pff,I spit on him.(said in a french accent)
If Hearns lawyers are that good,and if they're not,get some better ones,then we should come out of this with something positive in the end.
because there is a truth in there,they've broken Premier and Football League rules for a start.The problem now is how much money it's gonna take to take it further.
I can't see Bazza backing down tho',it's what makes his heart tick.Cholsient,get that rope ready,I'm roughing up me slippers.

this is my opinion.it is just an opinion.it may be correct, it may be miles off..but its what I think.........
I believe West Hams owners Gold & Sullivan, who are lets face it, hard nosed businessmen, have got a very valuable asset in a team that plays its home games in the Olympic stadium, and they have a deal to sell that club once the OS deal is signed and secure.
I believe the people who own the Westfields shopping centres will buy West Ham, sometime after the deal is done, and Sullivan & gold will make a shed load of money.
Westfields are mega rich......were talking enormous sums here, and they will take WEst Ham to new heights.
They will pump millions in that club, and buy top players, and once WH are one of the top teams, they will attract even more mega rich investors
In about 15 years from now, West Ham could be in the Real Madrid/Barcelona league.
The deal was struck, on the basis that they dont share the ground......it lowers the brand in their eyes, and in order that WEst Ham got the stadium, huge backhanders & bungs have been thrown around, to whoever they needed to to be on their side.
If they have spent 5 million on bungs & backhanders, its cheap, as they will make many more millions once their plans come to fruition.
These backhanders may have gone as high as its possible to go.( High as in personel)
How could it be possible, to reach such a decision as has been made, unless money & favours have changed hands.
Any legacy MUST have included Orient.it must have
This whole affair stinks to high heaven
As i say, this is one mans opinion, and maynot be at all factual..Im not saying it is, but this is what i think

Quite clearly the corruption involved here, and the sums involved, go to very high levels, and there is a cartel that are deliberately keeping Barry and Orient out. The OS 'legacy' (sic) is not a legacy unless it involves Leyton Orient in some way. As the spokesperson for the House of Lords said, the OS legacy was not intended to see the local football club stamped on and destroyed. That is what the LLDC, Boris, Sullivan Gold and Brady intend to do, and they know it. It is almost without doubt that there are very large sums involved, and with a fair number of people. Barry is entirely correct when he alludes to this in his commentary, when he mentions deals done behind closed doors.
This needs to come out, and it needs an investigative journalist to start digging.

We'll just take it out on them on the pitch next season!!!

Well I won't be using them when I sell my house.This money was accounted for beforehand (cup run),so no great biggy there.Thing is,the lawyers failed,so if Bazza continues with them maybe there's a deal to be struck to take it further,I dunno,I'm not a lawyer.They (the lawyers) certainly wouldn't want to be losers in a well publicised case though.
Does anyone know why Bazza has been in NY this week,I'm guessing it's boxing but they also have lawyers there,don't they.I really hope he continues with this and the club gets at least some kind of compensation.
I wonder if this could be funded by some billionaire that we don't know about yet.
We could all wear tea towels on our heads for the next home match,just to get the ball rolling.
