    See they were on TV again Saturday, its only September and they have had two TV Games, probably twice more than we will be on all season.

    Good to see lower league getting coverage but something wrong when National league teams get more than the divisions above.
    I guess they're seen as as big fish in that league. A stinky old minnow elsewhere of course...

    It's to do with BT Sport only having contracts for Premier and National League stuff, I guess, so they have to show some of that.

    On Saturday I had the misfortune of having the BT Sport Soccer Saturday style thing on, while I listened to our match on the radio.

    They had the usual suspects in the studio watching Premier League games, but out and about, they had a fella reporting live from Barrow v Torquay, no less. The updates everyone were waiting for!

    Its great they have the National league, just annoying they have two divisions above when they barely show any games .

    Ive watched the BT Score show, its normally Savage, Sutton and Hartson just arguing so tend to stay clear. Plus it winds me up when there is no Premiership games they dont even bother having a show.

    I see Orient are playing Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round!

    I was going to re-start this thread at the weekend after their loss to the mighty footballing power house that is "AFC Flyde" . They haven't won in over a month, and I reckon Tranmere Rovers & Barrow is at least good for a draw. So hopefully things are on the up.

    Is there a danger they could get relegated again? Surely that's goodnight Gracie if they end up playing semi-professional.

    I've seen a few NL clips on Youtube, surprised they haven't done a bit better so far this season. I didn't expect them to bounce straight back at a canter but I thought they'd put everything in place to at least be close to the playoffs.

    Told ya . Wish Danny Macklin all the best, did a good job here by all accounts and obviously why Orient made him an offer he couldn't refuse

    I think you could be right MK, They lost again today to Macclesfield, an appear to be in freefall.

    Currently no wins in 8 games, sitting 18th in the national league (possibly 19th if Flyde win their abandoned match against Maidstone, where they were 2-1 up).

    A real big 6 pointer coming up again'st Gateshead on Tuesday night, followed by some tough games against Wrexham (3rd) Ebbsfleet (10th) & Dover (2nd).

    Although it's still early days, as you mentioned, I reckon it will be "goodnight" for B'Orient if they drop down yet another division.

    The club is sitting on some prime land in London, that developers would love to buy up to convert to apartments at a drop of a hat.
