Leyton Orient v Arsenal – FA Cup 5th round highlights

Norwich, Andrew Whing and Harry Kane: Leyton Orient News Network

7 Jan

Just heard on twitter c/o @orientmeatpie Andrew Whing has signed from Brighton till the end of the season. Shame he wasn’t available to play the other day against his old employers. Might have kept the score down…

Harry Kane has signed from Tottenham on loan (where else) until the end of the season. From the spurs

The England Under-19 international played 22 times for our Under-18 side last season, scoring 18 goals, with his form earning him a place on the First Team bench on two occasions during the campaign and he was rewarded his first professional contract at the Club in July, 2010″

Tickets available for Norwich game…

Russel Slade has described the game as a real challenge in this match preview .

Tyrrel Forbes returns from suspension for the tie.

Paul Lambert has dismissed reports linking him with the Burnley job after they sacked Brian Laws(??). He hinted at team changes in his press conference, good news for the O’s… Even if he has denied the Burnley gossip, hopefully it will have unsettled the ‘mood in the cmap’. Thanks to Burnley, they’ve owed us one since 1986..



Leyton Orient: Review of The Season So Far

This article was written by Rowland Lyons, the lad from Grange Hill, BEFORE the Brighton & Colchester games…

WHILST we are still in the bottom half of the table hope springs eternal as the team is showing signs of threatening to enjoy a season of consolidation.  I just wish we had built on our fine start to the 2007 season, but since then we have been through two managers, countless players coming and going and the new gaffer – Mr Slade – brought in nine new players and a couple of loanees since – so as he has stated it is ‘a work in progress’.

But, unbeaten in eight games and going into the New Year that sees us five games behind schedule – four of those at home – suggests we could make a good fist of what started out as a nightmare in August and only got going once we had recorded our first win of the season against Exeter. Then followed an indifferent September – with that depressing defeat again Daggers and cup exits meant we had to try and put some points on the board. Which we have and now find ourselves in a position – although only two points off the relegation spots – gives hope that we can at least stay up – which is the lot of many of the smaller clubs in this league.
At least we have an FA Cup trip to look forward to at Norwich, and whilst hoping for cup progress, our small squad will be tested with at least five games to re-arrange.
Being an Orient fan you have to be realistic and with 24 points on the board and still not at the halfway mark in games played, it suggests the magic 50-point mark should be attainable should our revelation of a strike force manage to stay fit.
Up the O’s.

Adam Chambers Facing A Month Out

8 Nov

The midfielder general, Orients longest serving player, could be out for a month after it was revealed he needs surgery on his long term calf injury.

I won’t repeat the BBC site word for word, as long STANDING doesn’t seem appropriate in the circumstances…

Life Is A Cabaret – Peter Shilton On Strictly Update

23 Oct
Alesha Dixon

Kerry, sorry Alesha Dixon

Week Three and Shilts is still in, having seen off Paul Daniels and Goldie.

This week he danced the Charleston. Here are some of the comments…

Alesha: You didn’t really get your body into it. The hips didn’t move enough.

Bruno: You looked like a penguin stuck in the mud. Timing has to be spot on. Didn’t really gel.

Craig: I’ve glad you had a good time, I  couldn’t wait for it to finish. The white braces were a big mistake, they magnified your performance.

Len: This wasn’t your finest hour.

Tess: Standing ovation from up here..

Peter: This was a really hard dance. It;s the first time I’ve ever danced it.

Scores: Craig 2, Len 5 Alesha 6 Bruno 4 Total: 17 out of 40. Lowest score of the night so far. One of the remaining dance couples will be eliminated tomorrow on sunday…

Peter Shilton Survives On Strictly

11 Oct

When Taylor told Shilts to Kick It Out he wasn't discussing the Football Charity against Rascism.

Former Leyton Orient and England goalkeeper Peter Shilton survived the first public vote as Goldie was the shock celebrity to exit. My money was on Paul Daniels and Ann Widdecombe to be in the final two, but Daniels performed a bit of magic in avoiding the bottom two, and Widdecombe obviously drew on her experience of winning the vote of the public from years as an MP. With those two pensioners  still in, if Shilts can forget his kicking problems which saw him booted out of Leyton Orient by Tommy Taylor, and concentrate on his salsa and cha cha cha, he could still see his way into the later stages of this competition. And if he does crash out, the only other chance we have of seeing an Ex O on reality tv will be Steve Watts or Jeff Brazier on ‘The Only Way Is Essex’
