Yeah.....but this deal hasnt been going on for a matter of days, They've been talking for weeks now, & we need to know


You will, just wait a little longer, get this season done first then move on.

Key word in your reply "weeks". It's still been a relatively short time scale and these things do take time. You'll know when everything is finalised.

I understand the problem is that Dunkin Donut man handed over the quid, but unfortunately it was one of the old round kind, and Becchetti's representatives wanted the new shiny 12 sided version so there's a slight delay whilst one is obtained!

There's a delay because Barry Hearn offered the new £1 coin but nobody has the correct spanner to release said coin from Barry's hand (only joking Bazza!)

Don't understand where this optimism comes from???

Would anyone be surprised if Becchetti just pulled the plug and said no deal??? I certainly wouldn't I'm afraid...

When they send us a Get Well Soon card we will have confirmation they were just taking the piss.

Whatever the rumours, I hope FB in the long term no longer has ANY shares or interest in Leyton Orient.

This is around the time when Becchetti agreed to the sale of the club first time I believe but he moved the goalposts at the last minute, 1984 certainly jumped the gun on that occasion.
