    Tbf, i would place the majority of the blame with the owner Dave Allen who is just asset stripping. He claims that 30% of money from player sales is reinvested into the squad with 70% going on debt, but we haven't seen so much as 1% yet. In January we sold the country's top scorer Eoin Doyle for £850k and replaced him with a £10k league 2 player who Cheltenham (who later got relegated to non league) didn't want.
    My god I don't miss old Dave Allen at Hillsborough. Every now and then I still need to rant about him.

    Yeah I remember a while back you warned me about him and I was pretty defensive of him. Opinions are changing...

    Be interesting to see how Gary Caldwell acclimatises to life in the third tier with his Wigan side today. He's up against his mentor Tony Mowbray at the Ricoh, too, which adds spice to the occasion.

    It's good to have it back.

    Shambolic season last season for Orient, hopefully this season we'll get straight forward promotion, but that's the thing, 2 seasons ago we narrowly missed out on the Championship and this season we're in the League Two

    Two late goals at Elland Road, and a late equaliser from Noone - of stunning quality - in Cardiff to deny Fulham.

    Rotherham vs MK Dons could be a potential six pointer, 1-1.
    Walsall, Gillingham, Bradford & Wycombe all leading

    Indeed, and thought I'd screenshot the table for MK as doubt it'll be anything near this good after the first half hour:

    I'd rather we shut up shop and make sure we get the 3 points. :yes:

    Wigan are just so terrible. Would not be surprised if they end the campaign relegates once again.

    Very good performance against Peterborough today and the second goal was well taken. Probably should have been more than the two goals.

    Oh it's wonderful when a team of free transfers and academy products perform like they do for us. A 19 year old from the youth academy with a goal and a 20 year old as our captain. Jamie Allen - remember the name.

    Sheffield United and Bradford got battered too, early days though.
