Some comments from the Orient fans forum.

"Can’t believe Exeter are outside the play offs. Really enjoying watching them play. Us, on the other hand."

"Exeter are simply quicker to everything, closing us down, feels like we're playing to keep the score down."

"That goal was the nuts. From back to front." (about our third goal)

"Poor defending again but that goal started with their No. 30 running from 10 yards outside his own penalty area and after two exchanges of passes with his teammates putting a cross into a player outside our box. No tippy, tappy across the pitch, just direct up the pitch. :!: :!:
~ ~ Yes. Was lovely play."


"I am shocked how good Exeter are. Yes, we have been appalling but they are playing some beautiful one touch stuff."

"Lovely play from their forwards leading to the penalty. They’re different class to us."

"... But take nothing away from Exeter they have been superb today, possibly the best side I’ve seen this season based on the performance I’m watching."

"FT well played Exeter, best wishes for the auto promo push. A good side."
Generous comments there, far more than I've ever seen on an opposition site. Fair play to those Orient fans.

We played a team away earlier in the season who were equally as complimentary. I can't remember who it was, possibly Grimsby, but one of their fans commented how every year we play them off the park but never seem to go up which they found strange

That is because historically Orient fans are a decent bunch.
Some years ago, living near Bedford, I was on the train from Paddington to a home game and came across some Orient fans on their way to a conference game at Torquay. Met the same fans on the way back and they were absolutely superb. Plenty of beers, keen to talk about lower league footballing experiences etc. Top guys.
