I hope the team don't think they played well as that was poor, especially the second half.

Firstly good to see Mr Eren outside meeting supporters before and after the game. That's one big positive compared to a year ago.

We did what we needed to to win the game, took the chances when they came, although to be fair their keeper had a bit of a mare.

However it was a shame that we didn't make an effort after the break. The chance was there to try and play entertaining football and go for the kill but we seemed more interested in wasting time. Best illustrated by Lewis Young deliberately underkicking the ball for a corner and GK forcing a team mate to go about 30 yards to get it. It really was that pathetic.

Still we have clearly done enough now to stay up, and in my books 15th or 16th would be very acceptable for a team who were favourites to go down.

Sad to see Orient in such a mess, just a bunch of kids really but they kept going and the left sided lad Semedo would be a useful signing.

Finally for the referees on here, who was that buffoon with the flag on the West Stand side? Several times the ref needed to give fouls etc from 40 yards away for incidents less than 10 yards from the assistant who apparently didn't see them. I thought assistants were supposed to assist the ref but this guy was a complete muppet.

That was the easiest win will we have all season. Orient have got to be the worst team I've seen in the 5 years or so since we've been promoted to the FL. I can't see a team that poor staying up!

Some great set piece deliveries for the goals and Enzio caused havoc with his pace in behind. We should've put him up front and told him to stay on the shoulder of the last defender because they were so slow to react to anything and their keeper seemed glued to his line. We should've really put them to the sword.

Second half was poor from us, we never exerted ourselves and they never had the quality or desire to get back into the game.

Although enjoyable watching us win and score 3 goals, I went away from that feeling we didn't really play that well and were just up against a very poor side that would probably be relegated from the conference.

Once the game was won, I could hardly blame players for wanting to avoid injuries with so little to play for. For some of them, a long-term injury would mean unemployment pay.

How we won that i really don't know. We will play 10 times better and lose. We looked lethargic at a lot of times we were totally outplayed. Once Kaby went off we looked even worse. Blackman was awful Payne makes miles to many mistakes. It's a good job Orient couldn't finish or defend.

Still 3-0 and i reckon were safe.

Personally thought It was one of blackman better games. Thankfully had very little to do defensively and looked decent going forward as usual. Just wish we would start him left wing and then we may actually see him at his best.

I suppose it depends if the club is trying to attract new support or not.

Still most players are in it for themselves these days.

I told you boring orient are *beep* and considering that was one of the worst performances by a yet again reshuffled pack from the TOTALLY negative manequin it goes to show what an embarressment boring orient are to professional football. Sooner that useless hopeless bunch of losers leave league two the better. Contenders for worst professiinal team EVER yes EVER to play at the Broadfield. We were dreadful. They were pathetic. Now the worst... we are three up they havnt had a single attempt on target,Morris is a spectator we are attacking corners freekucks they have ONE up front and the dummy manequin wants FOUR players defending the situation. So negative. We could and shouldve doubled minimum our first half goals tally. The manequin has to go after that he showed how negative and unambitious he is.

today we had players non comitted againat players they couldve beat if we had our outfield players legs tied together. Effort at times was disgraceful. Insulting to those that pay their wages. Players ducking out of challengers is totall unacceptable.

Really - I saw Morris make two great interventions in a last-ditch sweeper-keeper role and one fabulous save when one-on-one... it is very easy to overlook his brilliance...!

R, R & R is right, they didn't have a shot on target. Of course keepers have other things to do and Morris does it brilliantly, the most composed keeper we have had for ages. Three set pieces, three goals in the space of nine minutes, we didn't do a great deal other than that until Enzio had a good chance later on in the game. We didn't have to get out of second gear. We may not have been great but we could have easily put them to the sword in the second half. The game was won by half time. Revenge for boxing day.
