At least Wellens was remembered for his time here.

From the Orient forum

My take on the game for what itís worth I thought first half every time we went forward it looked like we would score they were all over the place but I thought we overplayed it too often they were dangerous on the break but mostly when we made mistakes and allowed them in Sadlier Theo and Idris were all very good first half and we should have been out of sight.Once they scored they had something to hang on to and thatís what they did.Their support was excellent and they gave RW a standing ovation at the end a draw still keeps us well clear at the top and Carlisle have a terrible few games coming up and will drop points

Williams and Austin both off the pace a bit today.
Ans Hutton and Tomlinson. So frustrating at times how often this happens, our more experienced players don;t turn up. What a performance from the young lads today though

Agree 100% about away side facilities having the catering and toilets opposite each other so that the two queues merge into a scrum doesnít work when a big away following turns up. At HT some folks I spoke to said they had to stand in the gangways first half because they couldnít get to empty seats.
A well earned point on the pitch - I feared the worst when we conceded from an early set piece.
Orient are a decent team with players who are comfortable on the ball. Like most top of the table teams they also deploy the darker arts cleverly when required.
Overall we restricted their chances despite  the youthful defence.
We hung in the game, then  Wakeling took his chance well and I thought we would snatch it at the end.
The low point of the day for me was several minutes of idiots chanting ďSandro outĒ - rather than getting behind the team. Itís not helpful for the players.
I agree and would say the same about the 'your support is fucking shit' chants.

Firstly, don't worry about the opposition, focus on your own team. Secondly, it's not true. Their support wasn't shit.

Cracking day out, one of my favourite venues for away days. Amazing vocal support overall.  Nice chat in the pub with some Orient fans after. Really good away backing. I donít agree with Sandro out chants. That chant effectively is saying to the players on the pitch that we arenít happy with their quality. It canít help the team. Particularly ironic when it was belted out just after a Sandro signing (Wakeling) scored an excellent equaliser.

Our support suffers from idiots who repeat chants that were funny or good previously when they were relevant, but use them when it isn't appropriate and to be honest, its fucking cringe.

Love Wellens me and he still has a real soft spot for us.
Spoke to his Dad before the game, also very complimentary about Swindon.
Still disappointed he couldnít celebrate the success with the fans.
Got a cracking ovation at the end of the game.
Also met up with Mark Devlin, still a top bloke.

Our Support magnificent.

Hope Morris sticks it out with us.
Equally gets to select the players he wants.

Away support sounded great on the radio but It will take a monumental effort and alot of luck to make the play offs with so many teams above us in form.

Hutton has gone off the boil since the window.

Tomlinson is 22 and has not many league games under his belt. Thought he did well today out of position.

Austin just isn't getting the service he needs. Just like Jephcott wasn't. Difficult up top on your own m

RHM did well. As did devine

of the even younger youngsters Minturn did well for his first game. kadji was ok but at fault for the goal.

Good result all things considered, Morris starting to show if heís backed weíll have a decent chance of doing something.

On the flip side just more frustration, Orient are decent but nothing special. Just shows if we didnít make such a monumental cock up of recruitment and managerial appointments we could have been right up there. Letís hope Ralph is fucked off and Morris is allowed to stamp his mark on the squad.

Hutton's a strange one. Not many better with the ball at his feet but his spatial awareness seems shot to bits. Looks like he's miles away at times

The away support was absolutely phenomenal, especially considering that it's been a pretty mediocre season to say the least with what looks like just an outside chance of getting in the play offs. It was great for Clem to see that, so he can see he's not wasting his time and money and will be able to imagine what it would be like if we were to actually mount a challenge. Equally, the numbers we've been getting for home games have been unbelievable...

Good post Shaun let's hope Clem has the same vision as the supporters and backs Morris in the summer.
