  1. Surely we have filed later than 3 months.....on many occasions ? ;

    News has gone from bad to worse for Leyton Orient after Companies House issued a First Gazette notice for a compulsory strike-off. The club, owned by Italian Francesco Becchetti, have yet to file their accounts, which were due on March 31. They are now nearly three months late. The document...
  2. Famine...here we go again !

    The media now bombarding us with the "crisis" in many parts of the world with the term "children" in the forefront. Hmmmm all those charities and of course the hand outs by many countries all adds up to massive mountains of money BUT charities are pleading for another 5 billion dollars to halt...

    Dave has the hump with his local council!

    This made me smile on the BBC news this morning. PM leaning on local Tories?, naughty boy! David Cameron is involved in a row with the Conservative leader of his local county council over cuts to services. The PM has written to Oxfordshire council leader Ian Hudspeth saying he is "disappointed"...
  4. Barrett

    Surely he can't be allowed to just walk away - he adds so much value to the club, he loves the club and the fans love him. Convinced he has made a massive difference since he rejoined. Havent seen such passion since I used to watch paul clarke. Please stay for at least one more season.

    Question 4-5-1 at Wembley

    I, for one, will not be that surprised if PB goes for a 4-5-1 formation, at least to start with, on Saturday. Seems to me that with the large pitch at Wembley we have to be careful to not get caught out, especially early on, a la Plymouth. Plus, thanks to McGlaughlin's improvement in the...

  7. Question Surprisingly good sporting events

    What have you seen where you were surprised just how good it is? NBA - It was at Madison Square Garden and the Knicks won (pretty rare) so it was something special. Yes it's end to end baskets but the show, fast pace and athleticism make it great to watch NFL - Sorry MK but live NFL is...

    I am confused

    RM did say that with the Wembley money coming in we would break even this season..I don't know how much we took or get from ticket sales but if we sold 31,000 and had say £10 out of each ticket that is 310k.The merchandise must of raked in 50k. There must also of been at least 1000 new season...

    Question Prediction League

    Hi All Just wondering what if anything is going to happen with the predictions league? Appreciate having lost Harry its been a blow to all but I dont think he would have wanted it to stop all together as I know it was a thankless task for both him and Blueblood. I think as a mark of repsect...

    Every cloud .............

    Loss v Swindon has saved me (bearing in mind I have to fund SS Jnr too) maybe: 1. Away leg v Barnet £20 petrol, say £35 for two tickets, £20 for food, beer and prog, so £75 2. Home leg v Barnet (will have won it already by away leg but still gotta go) £15 petrol, £35 tickets, £20 food etc, so...

    Poor ickle Darryl

  13. This adds up, see what you think...

    Sainsbury's want to get into Roots Hall by 2012, not one brick has been laid at our new stadium, where are we going to go. Eastwood School is building a sort of stadium with a FIFA approved football pitch that is due to be completed for the 2012 GB Games, Are you thinking what I'm thinking.
  14. Ref Watch ..... Bury away

    We haven't lost at Bury for 22 years. The man in charge, as we attempt to keep this record intact, is the somewhat inexperienced first year League referee, Mark Brown from East Yorkshire. This will be his 7th ever League match, the first 6 producing a slightly high-ish 19 yellow cards a red...

    Pre-Match Thread Barnet v Southend (JPT Round 2)

    Who's going to this mouthwatering tie then? I'm currently working out a route by road which avoids the M25 and other equally **** roads at rush hour. I'm thinking A127, A128, A414, B158, A1000. Any better suggestions chaps? Back to the game... Will Luggy make changes and give some of the...

    St Pauli Article

    Picked via Slipperduke's twitter feed (@iainmacintosh) I know they've been discussed before on here, but it's always good be reminded of their awesome support. Article adds an interesting slant on how they've carved out their own niche in the market driven world of modern football. Hope they...
  17. Arteta for England?

    I'd be very interested to see some opinions on this subject, as with the complete lack of creativity from our midfield, Arteta would be a very astute addition to England's midfield, and it's only because of Xavi and Iniesta, two of the finest central midfielders in the world, that he hasn't...

    from the Guardian's knowledge section today - I never heard of this - anyone? Bueller? "Less widely broadcast was the banning of confectionery at a number of lower-league grounds in the 1990s when Brentford were the visiting team," adds Mike Deller. "Indeed, at one match (a promotion deciding...

    In praise of ugly football

    You know what, I'd hate it if every team at the World Cup played Brazilian style football. The joy of a a tournament is the different styles and approaches to the game. Uruguay last night were a case in point, they are a part of the fabric of the sport. Also the performance that New Zealand put...
