Following yesterday's thoroughly enjoyable 3-1 win over Orient at Brisbane Road, here are some thoughts on the game from the O's manager Russell Slade and a few of their fans.
The Orient manager was disappointed with his side's defending.
"The goals we conceded against Walsall and Tranmere were difficult to stop, but tonight we've conceded three poor goals," he told his club's official website.
"It didn't give us a chance really. We got a fine equaliser and were having a great period, but we shot ourselves in the foot because it was a really soft penalty to give away."
"We conceded at bad times with their third goal coming just after half-time, but fair play to them, they had a game plan and they've taken their goals well," said Slade.
The Orient fans were quick to acknowledge that Wycombe fully deserved their victory.
The following extracts are taken from the 'Leyton Orient Message Board.'
Charles Chavlin wrote:
"That was awful, lacking any ideas with the ball and some utterly clueless defending. Wycombe didn't have enough to be 3-1 better than us, but we were so rubbish it was gifted to them.'
"I didn't think we played that badly, better than the last game.'
"Arguably it was a better performance than Tranmere despite the scoreline, but we never looked like getting anything back against a comfortable looking Wycombe side. Their number 17 Grant had a good game, and our lopsided formation allowed him loads of space on the pitch to do what he wanted.'
"Wycombe were better than us. FACT.'
"I thought their outside left was brilliant last night and we just couldn't handle him. They played with two wingers and it proved very difficult for us.'
"We gave Ainsworth too much space, time and time again, even though he's one of the best crossers in the bottom two divisions.'
"Although I'm gutted we lost last night, I thought our performance was a hell of a lot better than Saturday's which clearly shows improvement.'
"First half we had great movement and pace. Second half we didn't even come out. It was our worst football for years. We weren't competing for the 2nd, 3rd or 4th balls let alone the first'
"Wycombe deserved it much, much, more than us.'

"Utterly disgraceful display, I didn't boo, but I fully understand anyone that did.'
"We need a keeper, a striker, a midfielder, wingers and some defenders. That's all - Problem solved.'
"When the third goal went in, we had about 35 minutes to respond, but the players didn't - in fact they were abysmal. It upset some people who had paid a lot of money and I can understand that, but a few started singing McGleish songs while the game was still going on, and that was pretty brainless in my opinion.'
