Leyton Orient v Notts County fan's view
The magnificent O’s can do no wrong at the moment after another scintillating – and dare I say ‘a look of champions’ – display ensured another three points came home last night.
In days gone by, the top versus bottom scenario might well have sent the jitters through many of our long-suffering faithful.
But, not the class of 2013/14, as a very poor, punchless Notts County were made to look very much of a bottom of the table side and cries of ‘being sacked in the morning’ ringing out around the ground towards their management were perhaps a tad harsh, but in this brutal world of football we live in, it’s a results based industry and there is little room for sentiment.
You must only look back exactly a year ago this evening and we had just beaten Yeovil to pick up what had been our third win in a row after a typically sluggish start to the season. Only a couple of weeks before that the fans had become restless after a lacklustre display at Crawley. But, the chairman showed his faith in our gaffer – and we are now reaping the rewards.
Seven wins in a row? Is it really happening? Pinch yourselves. Yes, it is and we are now going in to what will surely be a very tight London derby with a cushion of five points. But, leagues are not won over seven games so complacency must not creep in.
Whatever happens over the weekend – or even at Griffin Park on Monday night – we will still be top of the tree and it would be a brave punter to bet against us not still being the league leaders come 4.45pm on Saturday week when Walsall come a knocking.
But, well done to everyone concerned after such a mega achievement of not only bettering the club record set at Colchester nearly three weeks ago, but keeping the run going when even the most partisan supporters would surely not have envisaged we would still be sitting in pole position with autumn only just around the corner.
And, long may it continue!
Keep the faith,
Up the O’s
