So after the game goes ahead despite Crawley postponing the game and then ten minutes later putting it back on last week!

Three visits here and three very poor peformance wise loses from us.

I cannot see anything another than another Crawley win.

I will miss this one due to work but if Crawley manage a shot on target I'll be amazed.

We have scored one goal at home this season, we have bored the pants off anyone who has watched us. The only good thing is the wide open spaces between our full backs and the centre half (at least we can see some goals).

We have been informed that we have a mid table conference budget this season and 80% of that is being spent on the four players left from last season. We are seriously poor. Both in terms of budget and quality. If Orient don't win this they need shooting.

Did someone spill a pint in a nearby pub, risking the pitch becoming waterlogged? Saved in the nick of time when someone ran to Poundland for a roll of Bounty.

After that earlier debacle, the pitch had major renovation and drains well now. A pity really as we might have more chance of beating someone on a dodgy piutch. It seems that we either have a decent pitch or a decent team, but never both at the same time.
We do seem to be your bogey team though. I think we've only lost one league game against you and won all the rest.

The team will pick itself, we have our younger back keeper Charlie Grainger in goal and will play the same side as last week. John Marquis will be added to the bench.

I hope the M25 and Dartford Crossing are ok tomorrow......

Lump on Crawley to win, its nailed on, we always lose here and Crawley are due a home win.

We will lose.

You do know we have only scored ONE goal at home this season? We also have yet to win at home.
That said, our record against you is P6 W5 L1 so if I was a betting person I'd go for 0-0.
Enjoy the day.

Ugh. This is just like every game for the past month - we're utterly dominant, missing chance after chance and as soon as the opposition get near our box for the first time in the game we concede a soft, awful goal. So frustrating.

And another. Hilarious. Have to accept that we are probably the best side in the division on the ball, but absolutely awful at the back despite never actually looking in any trouble. Baffling.

Dunne's having a nightmare this season.

Watching Welling today, and Harry Lee, he looks a million miles away from being League Two ready.

This is just a perfect blueprint of how to beat us. Get caned for 20 minutes, cross your fingers that we don't score four or five, score your first chance with a shit goal, start lumping it and kicking us up in the air, watch our pitiful defensive mentality crumble, win.

Disgusting refereeing display here as well. Joke of a red card. Orient have been much the better side this second half even with 10 men - yet another mad 15 minutes costing us. Sigh.

Hendon has to go to a flat 4-4-2 soon, surely?

We only need 12 men.
Seriously though, it sounded like we were pretty lucky to hang on there.
Thank fuck that one's over.

This is what we get for playing a jet-lagged goalkeeper and only having two centre halves in the entire squad, I guess. Though this is all your fault, Franco.

:( I was half right with the scoreline... Surprised Cisak was playing. Really in a poor vein of form right now.

For the first 20mins it looked like we was going to win comfortably, but we didn't score the second goal when on top and Crawley scored with their first chance and from then on and not for the first time, we was poor.

From our perspective the second goal is a bad goalkeeping error and the 3rd started off with Sean Clohessy too far forward and Gwion Edwards exploiting the space well. A nailed on penalty for me and a red card, I was right in line with it and Dunne was the last man.

Some credit where its due, we gave it a good go in the second half but pulled a goal back too late, Marquis played well I thought for us. We also have the divisions top scorer as well now.

But we aren't going to be anywhere near the top 7, we cannot keep a clean sheet for shit and we always let in a bad goal. We'll always create chances, but we aren't good enough as a team at defending. Hendons signings also now beginning to be questioned, mainly Ollie Palmer who again missed 3 good chances, but anyone who knew about him before he signed knew he was a workhorse but a poor finisher.

Crawley to their credit today defended well and their young goalkeeper looked steady. The referee was very weak and poor I thought, his decision not to booke Lewis Young for kicking the ball away in stoppage time was criminal!
