    Orient served winding up order over unpaid bills under their Italian owner. Lets hope the fans trust can save this famous and long standing club. Good luck Orient for your future and and against Newport at the weekend.

    Jesus, only a few years ago they went toe to toe with us for the title in league one, never would have thought they'd end up like this

    In the play-offs, their penalty to win the match hit the bar/post and the opposition raced down the field with the ball from the rebound and scored (or something like that) and that was the end of their dream.

    Looks like the Italian owner may be to blame since 2014 :-
    From hiring and firing nine managers.
    To forcing the team and staff to stay in a hotel for a week after losing to Hartlepool .
    To leaving club legend Dean Cox in limbo by releasing him after the transfer window closed, to refusing to invest in the squad despite their obvious peril. Has had offers foe the club but demands the £ 4 miilion he paid as a minimum.
    It is like Becchetti has accepted a challenge to run a football club as badly as humanly possible.

    Criminal. Not helped by West Ham getting a free gaff up the road at tax payers expense either.

    Wish them well. Cracking game when they came to Molineux, murdered them but drew 1-1 alot of their fans said it had been a long time since they heard a stadium that loud.

    Orient are a very friendly club but sadly this decline is no surprise and was on the cards since Barry Hearn sold the club. Hearn was 100% Leyton Orient man who was in it all the right reasons.

    Same can not be said for the current owners.

    Orient is a grand old club and I really hope she can be saved

    That said, I wonder if Barry did enough research into the guys that bought the club from him>?

    either way its a very sad story.

    It is. There are interested buyers but he wants the £4 million he's put into the club and no one wants to go that far.

    Hearn has oft been criticised for asset stripping the club and selling it to a mug for a profit. If they go bust and the land gets sold for development, who owns the land? Hearn.

    Said today “As a fan, I would like to look at the fans trust’s proposals and think how I can help, but I wouldn’t be involved in anything.” Yeh he's Orient through and through.

    Blaming the London Stadium for Orients woes is *******s. What would they have done with it? They've been run into the ground by idiots. A crying shame for a great little club that have spent 20 odd years being used as an extension of people's egos.

    Radio 5 live no doubt, no prob. Orient formed in 1881 Wolves formed in 1877 they have to survive.

    Radio 3. :cool:

    Indeed, I'm a fan of football and am interested in the various histories of the various clubs. If it wasn't for two Wolves players Arsenal wouldn't have been invented. :oops:

    Shame to see any club in such a bad state, as said Hearn has to take some of the blame.

    If the above is true then I am quite appalled at Hearn's behaviour and his treatment of the O's.

    I haven't paid too much attention to whats being going on off the pitch at Brisbane Road road but I was under the impression Hearn was a solid O's man.

    sounds like that is quite far from the truth.

    Looking likely for them that the winding up will be a more a case of voluntary adminstration and the 12 point deduction. Great shame.

    Herne said that he would make an offer (Evening Standard last night) but there were conditions with respect to the fans. All very vague.

    He was on Talksport yesterday and he said he has moved on from that part of his life so there won't be any financial involvement but he would willingly give help and guidance .
    Sad state of affairs for the club.

    I've just read again and he says that he won't throw money away...and you're quite correct in that he will help for 6 months or so. It's a case of giving the fans support rather than giving back his £4 million.

    Two retired Wolves players at the end of the 19th century went to work at Woolwich Arsenal and they set up a works team. They needed a kit so got in touch with another ex-Wolves player who by then managed Notts Forest and they asked for a spare kit.

    That's how Arsenal and their colours were established. ;)

    Looks like Leyton Orient have kept the wolf from the door, temporarily at least, but are still in very dire straights and not only financially: propping up the league as well.

    Who would have thought after Wolves played Orient in the sunshine at Brisbane Road a couple years ago, both teams looking for championship football, that Orient would now be so close to oblivion?

    Sad because O's fans are a great bunch and deserve better

    Yes that happened when Coppinger scored but I also believe it happened to Orient at Wembley too.
