Kids for a quid should have been on this deal. Our fan base is on the senior side very few youngsters come and watch. Also this buy in advance nonsense needs to be scraped, people won’t bother.

Notice Gateshead have shaken up their whole price structure for the season, £10 per adult for all games.

Orient have screwed us over on this one, £5 for all their game same day and no need to be a friend of season ticket holder etc. Need a quick rethink or it will be the normal crowd turning up.

This one doesn't come across as the most generous of offers admittedly.

Given you need to use a voucher for this one, I see why it's 'advanced purchases only' but I have been surprised to see that being the case for the Daggers Against Racism Day.

Which on that note, yes Orient may well have a better deal this weekend - but I doubt you'll get in there for £2.50 later in the season.

Lucky if we get the normal 1000 home fans given the form and opponents. It will be hailed a success as Wrexham will bring 300-400.

Very disappointed with our effort in the build up to today. Orient once again have blown us out of the water. No other incentives to turn up other than it’s cheaper than normal. And our social media just has a boring to look at photo trying to cram in as much information as possible. Not every eye catching.

If only we had a really well known ex-premier league footballer connected to the club who we could have used to publicise ourselves.

Sagres our club will never learn about getting extra people through the gate,everything has to be brought in advance why is it so hard to sell cheaper tickets on the day.

This was a huge success and extra 250 on the gate, Pathetic. Time to stop the bollocks of cheap advance tickets when we do these games.

As was suggested to me Perrhaps Orient Marketing Manager told the Orient Board in her experiance restricting sales,to advance did not do much for the gates,. If you want to capitalise offer the discount onnthe day.

Now where did she learn that experiance I wonder ?)

Now I don't want to get in the way of the usual digs, but several of you seem to be missing a really important point.
The Orient game was sold out before Saturday. For it to be sold out before Saturday, all of the tickets must have been sold in advance. None were sold on the day.
