Leyton Orient Thread

Recommended Posts

Yeah, we're here again. Another manager bites the dust. 

Webb galvanised the team for a short period, was passionate, spoke well, wanted to stay at the club long term and actually had the fans behind him, unlike some other managers we've had but after Saturday's defeat to Crawley, he dared speak of wanting assurances so he could put together a plan for next season and beyond and now this. 

We're down anyway but I don't think that matters anymore, it's about the survival of the club now and there really needs to be a big push from our fans now to make that happen.

Why would anyone want to manage Orient? It's career suicide. As you say, the main objective is to keep the club alive, once that's been achieved you can begin putting the pieces back together.

Three of the last four appointments have been appointed from within the club (with the threat of the sack if they decline) and then told how to do their job by the idiot upstairs so that's the only reason we've had managers this season. Omer Riza seems the next in line to take the role.

what's the number at now?

I heard the other day that Portsmouth had something like 11 managers in the last 11 years. Could be wrong. Orient can't be far of that but it's no surprise when you have an absolute madman in charge at the very top.

Youth teamer at Arsenal and West Ham before playing for Barnet, Cambridge and Shrewsbury. Managed Cheshunt, who are in the 8th tier of English football before getting the U16's job with us, where he and others have done very well at before being promoted to assistant when Webb got the job.

And now the players' and staff's wages haven't been paid. The PFA are aware according to Sky Sports. 

We're on our way out and I don't mean just out of the Football League. We're dying slowly and painfully for us fans who can't do anything about it.

Thought that I would make a rather grim thread about the demise of Leyton Orient but decided to merge it with the news of yet another manager leaving to keep things tidy. After seeing Smiley's posts go from being gutted about missing out on the Championship by a whisker to facing the real prospect of playing non-league football I've really grown to hate Francesco Bechetti and have tried to follow Orient's news as much as I can in the hope that they can get out of this mess. 

This is the rather sad thread that I'm sure will get updated throughout the summer as Orient's roller-coaster era continues. The Football League have a lot to answer for.

It's hit a point now where I think if Bechetti offered to clear all debt and pump money back in to the club most Orient fans would rather he didn't and just left the club in hands of administrators. It's an absolute disgrace he was deemed fit and proper to run a football club.

There was a poll online from someone asking whether people would rather survive in League Two for another year but Becchetti remains or take relegation and he goes. Relegation and him going won convincingly in the end. That's the scale of the dislike towards him, people would rather us be relegated out of the Football League for the first time ever than Becchetti remain. 

Becchetti promised the courts he'd inject £1m over the next ten weeks at the winding up order at the start of the March. Fast forward to today and players and staff haven't been paid so it doesn't look positive at present and I can only see more creditors filing for winding up orders in future. 

Relegation is all but assured now but we're sinking fast and we'll be lucky to survive in the Conference next season if Becchetti remains.

And Orient players and staff, who were promised payment of their already late wages today, due on the 31st March, haven't been paid and have been told it won't happen today. 

I hope they refuse to play on Saturday, I really do.

SSN mentioned that the reason the players and staff haven't been paid is because Becchetti was changing his bank account. o.O

Players have finally been paid February's wages but are still missing their bonuses from that month, whilst staff remain unpaid.

The cunts at the Football League have asked our Fans Trust to foot the unpaid medical bills that the man the Football League deemed a 'fit and proper person' to run a Football Club hasn't bothered to pay. 

I sincerely hope our Fans Trust told them to fuck off once they stopped laughing at that outrageous statement.

That's a fucking joke really, asking a Fans Trust to pay bills that the chairman running the club can't be fucked to do.

Hope the Trust do tell the FL to get fucked.

I think the FL May have done that as before our final game in 2009/10 season the figures of what we owe what too was released and quite disgustingly the clubs previous regime had not paid st johns ambulance for there services for some time. As a result the fans got together and paid that debt off. Quite different circumstances as we didnt want to force the owner out and we were in administration at this point but the FL were probably hopeing we had set some sort of precedent.

Has anyone ever been found unfit to run a football club under that joke test? 

Off the top of my head, alongside Bechetti, there's been Venky's, SISU, Duchatelet, Tan, Cellino who have all come in and seriously mismanaged their toys clubs, while passing the test. I mean, really, it's astonishing. There are probably more, ffs, Dean Holdsworth was allowed to buy an initial stake in BWFC with his dodgy Sports Shield company, funded by dodgy money from scumcunt Jonathan Disley.

And it has now been confirmed. Becchetti has relegated Leyton Orient to the National League.

They could go further. Remember what happened to Hereford.

Can only feel for Smiley and other Orient fans. Having a shit owner is one thing. To have the club go to a level it's not been in for 112 years is sickening. 

Good luck for the future, Orient and @Smiley Culture. it doesn't look bright at all now but I hope that you come back sooner rather than later and 100% without Becchetti at the helm.

Stan summed it up very well. I didn't like Barry Hearn or the hymn sheet he would always mention "were always in profit were the only we'll run club blah blah blah" but even during that period I never would have wished on the fans what has happened under Bechetti. The sooner they get rid of him the better. Torquay are living proof that being a bigger club doesn't give you the automatic right to be challenging for promotion at that level.

While the EFL wanks itself silly and spends all that money on time on its silly rebranding, it supports shit like this.

The EFL and FA have totally let both clubs down. It's a disgrace.

Rather than actually deal with the problem and work out why both clubs' fans have been taking to pitch invasions, they ban ticket sales and treat fans like vermin. 

The Football League are a dispicable organisation from top to bottom.

Football is the only industry in the world where you would get away with this. I'm convinced.
