Well, this should be a barrel of laughs.

Orient's players to turn up later than the protesting fans, go 2-0 down, then salvage a stunning draw against the only side in the division on worse form thanks to newly-motivated super-sub Kevin Nolan.

Frankenstein to be relegated before retaining their FL place by merging with the now-defunct Leyton, calling themselves Leytonham Orientbridge and getting begged to come back when Coco's mob fail the FA's fit and proper club test (as does everyone else except the Premier League clubs, Leeds, Franchise and Barceluton).

Had this fallen a month earlier in the season I'd be quite excited for it. As it is, I can't be arsed travelling from Norwich to watch us drop and then suffer the misery of a 3 hour train ride home by myself - so I won't be attending.

If we don't win this, then things will turn very, very nasty.

The general consensus, is that the fans will back the team and get behind them, which right now is probably the right thing to do.

Our team selection will also be very interesting to see as well, If Mathieu Baudry doesn't start, David Gregory starts in goal and Nolan continues to start then a few questions will need to be asked...........

Dagenham look like they've been playing better recently, if their team give everything then they will beat us I reckon, particularly if the last 3 and a half weeks are anything to go by from our team, because we've been woeful - But has that been because the owner has been trying to interfere?

We've been poor at home for a long, long time now. Expect Cureton to get the winner.

D&R have given up all hope now I suspect... L'Orient will steam-roller them.

Well, I understand why Dikamona didn't play...

Firstly, kinda gutted Dagenham are gone.

Secondly without Worrall that defence... Worst defensive performance I've seen in a long time, and I include the league below. Cureton had a good game, so did Cousins. We were just better in all departments really.

Wish Dagenham all the best for next season, hope to see you back in the league soon.

Hessenthaler all but confirms in his post match chinwag that Becchetti picked the team today. Joy.

Ps. Farewell to our friends Dagenham. You were a blight on the Football League, but your puppy-like endeavour to manufacture a rivalry was never less than endearing. Goodnight, sweet princes.

At least it's now confirmed. It's been fun while it lasted and 9 years is by far longer than I ever thought we'd get, and even a season in League 1.

Hopefully next season sees a few more wins.

Farewell D&R. Genuinely disappointed to lose you. I am sceptical of a quick return, given the increasing proliferation of bankrolled conf sides plus traditional league sides (eg Wrexham & Grimsby) still down there, but hope that your conf stay is short. There but for the grace of <insert your belief system here>...

The game summed us up as a squad this season, create chances - But fail to kill teams off quickly enough - Then collapse at the first sight of trouble and mentally unable to keep it together.

For the first half Dagenham were absolutely shocking, that was probably the worst first half display I've seen from a team here since we beat Gillingham 5-1 exactly two years ago, their defending, positioning and marking was horrendous, we should've been out of sight.

Second half, again we start strongly and failed to kill the game off. Dagenham take advantage of one of our mistakes and we collapse as a team, the fear sets in and before you know it, its 2-2 despite the fact we've not been in too much danger all game - The same thing happened when we beat York 3-2 at home in November.

Gnaduillet struck the winner, but he was rightly taken off, he was shit - His decision in the first half not to pass to Simpson when we had a 3 v 2 was shocking.

We laboured to the win and Dagenham nearly scrapped a draw that their second half efforts warrented.

We won't make the playoffs, not good enough mentally, to collapse like we did shows to me that this team really isn't up to it.

Goodbye Dagenham, their stay was decent for a club of their size, maybe Still can get them back to what they were about 5 years ago. Today they were shambolic as a team defensively - Cousins was by far their best player, two well taken goals though.

Very kind of you :) Going to miss L2 but the Conference is another new adventure, and all we can do it embrace it! Hopefully we'll be back someday.
