Blazing Saddlers

or never give a fan an even break!

Considering the two earlier meetings between Orient and Walsall this season I wasn’t expecting a goal fest. On the other hand, when the afternoon played out as a mockumentary about ghosts of Orient’s past, I was confused and a shower of goals would have been preferable.

The opening 45 minutes of the game obviously trying to win an award for lacklustre performance of the season. In fact the commentary made my mind conjure up memories of seasons gone by when this was standard fare as far as Orient was concerned. I even went so far as giving these flashbacks a name and a cast.

Blazing Saddlers

A 2014 satirical Orient football match led by Russell Slade, starring
  • David Mooney as Ryan Jarvis
  • Chris Dagnall as Robbie Simpson
  • Dean Cox as Jason Demetriou
  • Lloyd James as Paul Terry
  • Scott Cuthbert as Stephen Purches
Introducing Kevin Dearden as Mongo. Cameo appearances by Eldin Jakupovic, Mathieu Baudry, and Moses Odubajo.

Orient just pawn in game of life
Fair play though to all involved since an Orient side of old had been well and truly beaten after a first half like that with no hope of a comeback. The side of 2013/14 just kept on playing finally earning a draw.

Beacuse let’s be honest, this season even being two goals down you know that there’s still a chance. No reason to stop listening, walk out of the stand early or just give up. That’s why a continued push for a top two spot is the thing to aim for. Difficult but not impossible. More motivation than that surely isn’t needed is it? There are more twists and turns left in this season of that I am sure. With determination and a little luck there’s still a chance for this great Orient team to end in a Blaze of Glory (queue Joe Jackson)!
