@  Anonymous Ha... : (25 Oct - 17:31) im surprised dickov hasn't gone yet
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 18:32) Milanic getting sacked is no surprise, he's been there for 6 games now, that is a good run for a manager with Cellino as owner. Redfearn will take the reigns tomorrow and be gone by Christmas.
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 18:42) Why surprised about Dickov? He's still trying to sort the team out after not being able to do anything over the summer,yet again, because of another one of those failed takeovers. We brought in another defender this week who seems to have slotted in quite well from todays performance. The keeper we have on loan from Villa will be sent back shortly and Sam Johnson will be signing for us who is a much better keeper. There isn't a big rush, it wasn't until the 17th game that we started to make headway in this division a couple of seasons ago when we went up as champions. If all you can think of is sacking a manager before he has a chance to sort the team out then it shows how much you don't know about football and maybe you should become a Leeds fan, you'd fit in quite well there, they haven't got a clue either
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 18:56) While your reading, have you also noticed we have a couple of games in hand, which if won would take Donny to just outside the playoffs?
@  Anonymous Ha... : (25 Oct - 19:08) stop banging on about the past, just cos you got things sorted out 2 years ago it don't mean you will now, you have a different manager and different players now
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 19:10) Yes, a different manager now and only an idiot would say they are surprised he hasn't gone yet.
@  Anonymous Ha... : (25 Oct - 19:10) the plastics and swindon have 2 games in hand aswell
@  Anonymous Ha... : (25 Oct - 19:11) stop talking rubbish you are 20th how blind are you
@  Anonymous Ha... : (25 Oct - 19:12) you have only scored 12 goals this season
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 19:13) I know they have, I didn't say all the clubs above us had played 2 games more. You are the joke that is talking rubbish, go and learn something about football then I might be interested in talking to you. Bye

@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:09) A big improvement on Tuesday
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:13) At least we kept a clean sheet.
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:14) Jed Steer will be going back to Villa after the Bradford game and Sam Johnson will be back with us
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:14) Expect more clean sheets when that happens
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:16) We had a good laugh today reading our Heathers schoolbook when she was nine or ten. One entry read. yesterday we went to church, the gideons came and showed us an adult film.
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:17) We are not scoring though and our gd is - 8
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:19) Curtis Main is back and should be match fit soon, that will add strength to the forward line
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:20) Robinson seemed to have a rocket up his rear end when he came on today
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:22) Two games in hand could shoot us up the table if we win them.
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:23) Win them and we'll be close to playoffs. Another international break soon though which will put us another game behind
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:26) Games in hand after Christmas can be a nightmare as you only need a couple of postponed games and a decent cup run. Then even if you reach the play offs you are a bit tired by then.
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:27) Posponed games and cup run to add to the G in H
@  Dave Sargeant : (25 Oct - 21:29) Will say goodnight Spike as I am quite tired.
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:29) The 2 games in hand we have atm have been re-arranged for before Christmas so anything of a backlog will be the build up from now
@  Spike : (25 Oct - 21:31) Goodnight Dave

Anyone of the same opinion as me, that the whole process in this country with regard to the OS stinks of corruption? When the WHU lawyer is stating in court that having LOFC in the same stadium would ruin the WHU 'brand', I am gob smacked that Barry and Orient have not won the right to a full judicial review. We shall see where this goes next, but I do not see Barry giving up, and he has right very much on his side.

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 !

Perhaps someone to parachute into upton park during a live sky game trailing a banner or something. It happened in the weekend just gone and made the news. I would offer but I'm scared of heights.. Truly diabolical decision though. Bazza is only asking someone to consider the option and if they come up with a viable reason why we shouldn't share (of which there isn't one) then fair enough. Perhaps this spell of success will help with the publicity. And as I've said before, why should one championship club get preference over another?

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

I reckon you are not far from the truth. Whether Westfields are involved, is debatable, but you could replace their name with any other organisation that may be involved. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that you are almost bang on the truth.
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.

It will all come out in the future, but only at a time that the O's, or anyone else for that matter, can do nothing about it. Dark forces unquestionably at work here.

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.
