With talk of the dear old O’s folding  it’s time to take a look at how things were reported on the last time the club faced going under back in January 1995. We’ve reproduced most of Issue 82 of the ‘Leyton Orientear’ which (due to print deadlines) contained a hastily cobbled together supplement following ‘Florida’ Phil Wallace’s aborted take over at the club.

There is also a report of Mr. Wallace’s night in the supporters club where he tried to win over (and mostly failed) a sceptical audience. So pour yourself a coffee and kick back with a Belgian bun to relive these golden memories…
