Leyton Orient drop into non-league with their future uncertain

May 25, 2014 appeared to be a minor blip for Leyton Orient. A surprisingly good season, the club’s best in 32 years, culminated in an agonising defeat on penalties to Rotherham in the League One play-off final.

Finally Progression for Pompey: The Fan’s View

As a Portsmouth fan the last few years have been very tough for me. From the jubilation of winning the FA Cup against Cardiff eight years ago to the financial turmoil to the relegation to League Two. It’s been tough, I won’t lie to you, but finally this year we have made real progress, and it’s […]

The Weekend Preview: Who’s up and who’s down?

This weekend signifies the penultimate weekend for the majority of our English clubs in the Football League. Unlike most seasons a lot of this seasons finishing positions have been decided. Runaway winners of League Two Northampton have had very little to play for, for some time. But this is not the case for a lot […]
