Leyton Orient – Sat 17th January
Kick Off 15:00pm
Tickets Pay on the Day

How To Get There By Car
Thanks to O-Net for the following directions: Approaching London you will at some point hit the M25. Use this to get to the M11 (unless you’re coming from Cambridge, in which case you’ll already be on it) take the southbound carriageway for about 6 miles and take the right fork signposted for the North Circular.

At the bottom of the flyover where the roads merge, move into the left-hand lane and turn left at the roundabout on to the A104. After about 1 mile at the next roundabout take the right exit – still the A104 (a landmark here is the quaintly-decorated Lamb’s Cafe). Half a mile further on, turn left into Leyton Green Road (signposted to Leyton and Stratford), and left again into a short slip-road past the bus garage entrance and left into Leyton High Road – you’ll see the Leyton Leisure Lagoon opposite as you wait to make the turn. Continue until you see the floodlights and then find a side turning to park in the back-streets. Street Parking.

Fans interview by easteasteastlondonO
DRINK/FOOD
Which pub(s) would you recommend our fans use during our visit? The nearest pub to the ground is the Coach & Horses. To get there take a right out of Leyton station and walk down for about half-a-mile. It is on your left, within sight of the floodlights. The Three Blackbirds has been recommended to me and that is a bit further up Leyton High Road, on the right.

Which pubs would you suggest we avoid for the duration of our visit? None, they’re all terrific.

What food do you serve at your ground? What is it like?> We serve the same food you buy at all other grounds. It’s not bad, but a little bit expensive, obviously.

GROUND
What is your ground like? The ground holds 9,500, has two new stands, and the view you get is decent, but only if you’re not sat behind any of the pillars.

Is the ground easy to find? Brisbane Road is very accesible. Just look for a block of flats with floodlights coming out of the roof.

Any suggestions of where the away fans can park? Get to the ground early and you can park anywhere around the many houses nearby. Also, on the road suitably named ‘Orient Way’ there is a roundabout that leads to a rubbish tip. Outside it there is plenty of room.

TEAM/MANAGEMENT

What players have you signed so far and how do you rate them? So far in January we’ve signed Tottenham winger/defender Charlie Daniels. He was on-loan at Orient for the whole of last season. He started against and nine minutes his error lead to Leicester’s first of three goals. He is awful, just like the rest of the team.

What player(s) have you seen leave your club and will they be missed? None.

Do you have any injury worries ahead of Saturdays game against us? Striker Wayne Gray always scores against Bristol Rovers and he’s out until March/April. So you’ve got nothing to worry about.

Players to watch out for?
None. They’re all rubbish.

If you could have one Rovers player who would it be? Craig Disley. He always scores against us.

Who do you think will win the league? Leicester have won it already.

Who do you think will be relegated? Hereford, Crewe, Cheltenham and Orient.

And finally prediction? 2-0 Bristol Rovers

  • At last some decent bloody information that the fans want to read, another reason why i prefer this to the official website. I dont have to constantly trawl through BRFC’s current promotions and ebay auctions to find some interesting reading.

    I wonder how much the web guy (his name eludes me) on the OS gets a year, i heard somewhere its done voluntarily but i dont believe that for a minute, although thats what i would suspect given the outdated content.

  • Ian Cole, I was told he is on peanuts but he has been there many years so it can’t that bad.

    Very good read there Lenny, i hope this is a regular feature as i often to struggle to find information like this (ticketing prices, directions, and a safe watering hole)
