    Paul Scholes has been charged with placing over 100 bets on football matches since becoming one of Salford's owners, according to the Graun.

      Good God, WHY???? Scholes son recently got done for assault in a barroom scuffle. During the trial he is reputed to have said to the Manchester Evening News "what bollocks are you going to write today?".

      The wheels have come off the quiet lad who likes to play football image that he garnered in his playing career.

        During the trial, the defence should have asked the victim under oath who was the toughest opponent he ever faced.

          Well, the top teams all won yesterday, with Salford taking their turn to get a last minute winner. The auto-promo spot is now down to Orient, Salford and Solihull with 2 games to go. Orient have the points advantage but visit Solihull on Monday, whilst Salford host playoff certainties Fylde. Itís going to be a tense afternoon.

            The Solihull-Orient game is live on BT on Monday. Could be worth a watch.

              It's a pity Solihull and Orient can't both get three points here. As much as I'd like to see Solihull go up a bigger part of me wants Salford City to fuck it up at the death.

                Orient on the brink of promotion now, just need a draw from their final game after Fylde defeat Salford.

                  That was tense stuff to watch, well done The O's for being almost there.

                    Is goal difference the deciding factor?

                    Comment


                      Yes, goal difference is the first tie-breaker. Orient are in a very strong position now because of that.

                      Comment


                        Yes and so it would take a huge and impossibly likely swing for Orient to miss out. So I think we can (despite the inevitable protestations of E10 in a minute) welcome Orient back to the league Congratulations!

                          Indeed!

                            Awful game, but we donít care! Thank you, Fylde. Even Orient canít cock this up now...

                              Five goals doesn't seem impossible as a swing. Salford are playing a Hartlepool side that concedes fairly often. If they were to win 4-0, then Orient would have to avoid defeat to take the title. Which would be a choke seeing as Braintree are down, but if the news were to come through that Salford were two up after 20 minutes say, then it's easy to see how things could get very tense...
                              It's not an implausible pair of results and Orient fans should hold off the celebrations for now.

                              [In fact, I've lived this scenario before from Salford's perspective. Cambridge went into a last day once looking to win 4-0 and hope Burton lost to snatch the title. Burton did lose, but Cambridge could only draw 0-0 with mid-table Altrincham]

                                  Heh heh. I'm not quite celebrating, but yesterday's ugly game was always going to be the toughest of our run-in. So I'm glad it's out of the way

                                    OTF hat: good luck Orient, they deserve some light in their long-suffering lives.

                                    ECFC hat: odds on Exeter will be in the division next season, so we could do without decent sides coming up. Even Macclesfield were too good for us.

                                      Would be an absolute pleasure to help Orient go up ahead of Salford so I think Pools fans will be up for it. That might not be enough to get a performance out of a squad that couldn't be arsed at Barrow even with over a thousand away fans backing them.

                                        Hadn't seen the table for a while - very happy to see Orient on the verge. My nephew's a 'travel anyfuckingwhere to see them' Harrogate Town fan, so I'm hoping they go up as the second team.

                                          I want Wrexham to go up, for the not-at-all-selfish reason that I'll've still seen Rotherham play every single current league club except for Tottenham Hotspur.

                                              Salford take an early lead away to Hartlepool, but Orient still in control, as scoreless against Braintree.

                                              Comment


                                                Still 0-0 at Brisbane Road, but up in the North-East Salford haven't added to that very early goal, instead having a player sent off for two bookings just before half-time and then conceding an equaliser soon after it. Done and dusted now.

                                                  Make that 2-1 to Hartlepool.

                                                  Comment


                                                    Orient draw and win promotion - Salford currently 3-2 down.

                                                    Congratulations to Slackster and E10 Rifle. Welcome back, lads.
