To be a rival you have to have the same feelings both ways....after Hearn arrived the whole ethos of your club changed, you were played, end of.

Lets be honest here...Orient mean as much these days as the Daggers. I know plenty of chaps who go and watch Dagenham and Southend, I know no-one who goes and watches the Os. Nobody knows who owns either....and that is how it should be.

Hearn MADE this so called rivalry....and the regulars over E10 lapped it up sadly.

I wish the people at Orient every success with their fund raising.

Fear they may pay the tax bill with it though. If things as bad as they appear (they may not be, Becchetti may just pay up after all?) then they would be throwing good money after bad. Better to save money and effort to get a phoenix club of the ground on a really good footing?

Easy for me to say admittedly.

I was talking about what he said about hoping Spurs and Arsenal would go the same way as us. We have never been rivals with you.

We are not paying the tax bill. If it is a choice between the owner staying and administration, administration wins.

Fair. But rather Daves than administration any day of the week.

Think last night's result has relegated them.

They probably need 6 wins from 9 games. they've only won 2 in their last 10.

If they starve off administration this season, and take the 12 point hit next season they'll struggle in the conference... I think we could be seeing them out of existance in the next 3 years.

Which is sad, as I used to go over there with the old man when I was younger and we were away. As Romford keeps pointing out, I haven't been over there for years now due to the anti West Ham brigade.

I still keep an eye out for their results though, but things look really bad over there.
