Leyton Orient, the little known east london club who play on the site of a future supermarket and are twinned with French Giants Lorient (club motto – because they’re worth it) have been handed a world record 10 year ban in the transfer market after illegally approaching, attempting to sign, and generally poaching like eggs the cream of the French Cheese market in Calais.
Orient chairman Harry Byrne and Chief Executive Column Writer Mort Pinter acted under cover by opening a warehouse named “Eastenders” in Calais where they sold cheap booze, and English people flocked in their thousands to buy the bargains in January and August.
The scam was discoverd when a french employee, known locally as Len, revealed what his bosses were doing by inadvertedly posting information on Fraisebook and Tweeter (the french versions of Friends Re-United and Myspace)
The full list of players poached by L.Orient is as follows….
Loick Pires (brother of Robert)
Paul Thierry (brother of John Henry)
Jerome Jones (gk)
Jason Jean (JJ) Melligan
