The Opposition View - Leyton Orient

The Opposition View - Leyton Orient

Following yesterday's 2-0 win at Leyton Orient, here are some views on the game from the O's manager Omer Riza and a selection of their fans.

"The red card was way too harsh," said Riza speaking to Sport in a Storm

"Okay his leg was a bit high but he hasn't touched their player at all."

"The sending-off changed things, and the second goal came after a push on my player and I complained to the linesman about that."

"Regarding my sending-off, perhaps I need to control myself a bit more," he said.

"Perhaps I shouldn't have had a pop at the referee or the opposition - I was a little bit emotional but sometimes you feel you get cheated.'

"It's been a difficult week and the boys weren't paid on Thursday but their attitude was excellent."

"We didn't concede after the break so there are lots of positives to take for us."

"We threw bodies forward, and when you do that, you stop the opposition coming forward and you can create something. That was our idea and it nearly worked."

"In general, I'm very happy with the boys," he concluded.

For the Orient fans, another defeat is the least of their problems.

The following extracts are taken from the Independent Leyton Orient forum and Twitter.

"We started with wing-backs and it was working really well. Comfortably the better side until the red card which the referee was way too quick to dish out. First goal really unlucky with the bounce, second goal the referee was at it again with a totally scandalous decision not to penalise Weston for a clear foul on Janse. Game over after that but the players never stopped trying until the end, can't criticise any of them for lack of effort, application and desire today."

"I expect that second goal will be used for referee training purposes.

"The ref got the Red card wrong. I don't thinks Parkes actually touched him but Thompson went down like he'd been shot."

"The ref was facing the Wycombe bench and their reaction probably helped make up his mind. They all shot up straight away protesting."

"Definitely a red card. Even though there may not have been contact it was dangerous play. The first goal is one of those that only happens to teams when things are going against you, the second was a clear foul."

"It can't be much longer now until our relegation from the Football League is confirmed. From the top of League One to non league in only three seasons. Well done Becchetti, you moronic pr**k."

"Great support from the Wycombe fans in the Becchetti out chants, top stuff."

"Some brilliant anti-Becchetti chants from the Wycombe fans. Great bunch, well played."

ChingfordRed wrote:
"On the pitch Wycombe have got a reputation of going over too easily and play acting, something we saw a couple of times today, but off the pitch they're a class above anything else in the division. Their fans joined in all the anti-Becchetti stuff and the 'Stand Up For The Orient' chants, and Gareth Ainsworth, some players, and fans, made donations to the Regen Fund. Hope they go up."

"Didn't just join in - they started the 'Sack the Board' chant and were also singing 'Give them their club back'

Charlie O wrote:
"They didn't have to do anything but did. They seemed as keen to make a noise about Bechetti and our owners as we did. They were clapping our supporters and joining in and starting up a few of their own chants. Class from them."

"Agreed. What a top bloke Akinfenwa is as well, was last off the pitch by about 5 or 10 minutes whilst he had selfies with each and every person who asked him. Great advert for the game."
