Up The Orient!

Good afternoon.

First item of business is a whopping congrats to Citizen Astromesmo. Not only is he a delightful chap in his own right, but he is now the quite rightly the wonderfully proud father of a swanky new  ‘junior client number’ and we ought all raise a cyber glass to not only him but those he calls his own  :winke:

My newest most favouritist figure in football, Barry Hearn has formally thrown his Chairman’s titfer into the old OPLC ring. I sincerely hopes he gets the outcome he seeks. 

Not just granted the OS itself which would be sweet for Orient of course, but being treated fairly in accordance with the numerous laws of the land. So far, the installation of another football club that would without doubt threaten the very existence of Leyton Orient has been summarily ignored. The word ‘disgrace’ is bandied about so frequently in football we’ve almost become immune to it. The treatment of Orient has been less than shoddy.

So eager have been the narcissists and the pornographers to advance themselves fair play and justice have been ridden roughshod.  Here’s the boy Barry:

“We are asking for a 25,000-seat stadium and we want to see if we can get around the athletics track. It has to stay, we know that. But can we build up, if not down, and see if it’s possible to get it covered while we play?

“If it isn’t possible, it isn’t – and we wouldn’t move in with a running track between the pitch and the crowd.

“We have submitted an application for permission to move to the Football League, and that permission is something that West Ham don’t yet have.

“It was the Premier League who gave them the green light to move in their original plan, but they are no longer members of the Premier League.

“The rules are that the Football League would not sanction a club moving closer to another club if it affects the business of that other club, and there’s no doubt that West Ham moving there would affect us.

“West Ham can’t just assume that they will be in the Premier League by then. How, therefore, can the Olympic Park Legacy Company, whose job it is to decide who takes over the stadium, allow West Ham to remain in the bidding process? We want them thrown out because they don’t have permission from the relevant authority – the Football League.”

    Love it. Leyton f*cking Orient don’t think a running track is viable at a football stadium, even if it means “free” swanky new facilities.

    Yet OPLC members, politicians from all parties (David Lammy excluded, although he’s still a useless prick) at all levels of government, Newham Council, Coe and seemingly the entire media contingent; they were all willing to believe that West Ham were going to actually keep the track there for even a minute after they moved in. It just doesn’t make sense on any level. Bunch of lying porn peddlers.

    Hopefully they’re f*cked now.

    So West Ham financial ruin by winning it or general ruin by Orient becoming serious rivals in every aspect. Sounds like a win-win to me

  • KLSpurs says:

    Get rid of Karen Brady from West Ham and the world will be ok once again….all iz well!

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      KLSpurs there aren’t really any rules on here. But you have crossed a line. I mean it.

      Have you not worked it out yet? Alan Sugar’s got an ‘insider’ working for him, like the Trojan Horse, eh?

        Please can you refrain from using words such as ‘insider’ when referring to #facelikeakickedinfridge. It creates a very uncomfortable image.
