Does anyone know why Orient are getting such relatively large crowds whilst doing poorly in national league. Seem to be quite a bit bigger than when they were in league one. Is this an upsurge if local sentiment to keep the club alive? Barry Hearn suggested the club wouldn’t survive when West Ham moved into the Olympic Stadium?

It's called sticking together when the chips are down.

Same as the standard 3,500 hardcore who would attend our games when things were dire.

There's a good 10,000 claiming to have been that 3,500 Al.

And the Winter Gardens must have been like the Tardis the amount who went that night.


Orient fans deserve better than the sh­it that's happened to them over the past few years, I really hope things work out for them.

Who would have thought after that 3-1 battering we took up there that 2 clubs' fortunes could differ so much?

One of my favourite away days and have always followed the story. Hope they get back up.

"You might as well go indoors" to the people on the balcony in the flats is also one of my all time favourites.

"We can see you washing up" was also a classic.

Hope they do a recovery like ours with that support. Need to avoid another relegation first though. They might pass West Ham on the way down one day.

I was a bit annoyed with them in 69-70. They were champions of Div 3 but
lost their last game at home to Gillingham, who put us down to div 4 on goal difference- we thought Orient we would win easily making us safe so didn't even look at the result that night- picked up the newspaper in the morning and was devastated, stunned! Our bogey team Gillingham had stuck us in Div4. Ted had got 21 goals that season - thank god we kept him and came back up a year later with Ted getting 42 or so!

Very true Bill - remember getting a 0-0 draw at Gillingham, my first ever away game, and thinking we were safe. Friends who went to the Orient Gillingham game were convinced it was a fix, not least as after the late winner went in Terry Mancini just stood there and laughed.

About time I moved on...

That Orient v Gillingham game has pricked a memory.
There was no way Champions Orient would lose to lowly Gillingham that Tuesday night after the normal end of season the previous Saturday.

This 9 year old went to bed without a care in the world.

My Dad told me the score next morning.
We were relegated.
I cried!

Around 2011/12 - "you're in negative equity, you're in negative equity"

And my wife's favourite "balcony, wink wink wink"
