When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry,show life that you have a 1000 reasons to smile
Comparing our respective histories, there seems to be little between us. So me saying they were above their station wasn't based on that. Its because every time this fixture comes round for some unknown reason, they call us scum and show so much disdain. It just smells of them looking down on us like they are a lot bigger and better when nothing is further from the truth.
I've met fans of clubs at our level and there is always a mutual appreciation of each others team and a lot of "nice litle ground is Griffin Park" or "good awayday" and vice versa. But with Orient, they think we're scum and that we have delusions of grandeur. I just don't get it. Has there been an incident in the past that could have instigated their feelings?
Not really the place is a dump
I can only look at it from the present and the future and they are tinpot. They play in a matchbox devoid of any atmosphere. Any crowd over 3000 makes headlines in the local paper and as for all this talk about their time in the 2nd tier - well now really. Ask yourself this - in 10 years time, which is the more likely - Orient in the 2nd tier of Orient in the Conference? And, Brentford in the 2nd tier or Brentford in the Conference?
Their fan base, with the exception of three blokes that look like a Chas & Dave tribute act and Andrew Lloyd Webber, consists mainly of 12-14 year olds which I suppose bodes well for the future. But that's all they've got going for them as far as I can see and if they happen to get a lucky win in their cup final tomorrow, at least we will be comforted by knowing that as always, we will finish above them and will always be a much finer club .
If we beat Southend.

I think we should show a bit of class. Sing "There's Only One Martin Rowlands" throughout the game, offer handshakes everytime he comes near the touchline. Applaud his every touch of the ball etc. Really confuse the c*** .
If we beat Southend.
Any decent boozers near the stadium?
Lick it Like you Mean It
Well, I made it onto their board, one of their well informed lot reckons that Matthew Benham is dancing with us for future personal gain ala Barry "Money Money Money" Hearn.
Vote BLUNSTONE - maybe out of touch but closer than what we already have.
