L.Orient banned from entering transfer market after poaching French players

14 Sep

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.

Take That

Take That

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)
Stephane Purchase
Rianne Jarvis
Jerome Jones (gk)
Thierry Mkandawire
Jerome Ibehere
Jason Jean (JJ) Melligan
Sasha Opinell
Simone Church
Michel’ Simpson
Zinedane Zakuani
Amara Simba
Magno Vierra
That Other one from the Calais amatuer team

Manager Gerard Williams slammed FIFA and was quoted as saying “Sacre Blue” before eating an onion and crying real tears and cycling off down the louvre…

Leyton Orient v Leeds – Player Ratings

9 Apr

Jones – 7 Kicking was off but a brilliant double save that deserves a lot more credit kept Orient in the game. Good to see a confident keeper that comes for ball. Makes a whole lot of differnce

Mkandawire – 7 so good to see him back in the team and doesn’t seem to be showing effects from recent injury. Dominant at the end and didn’t give the leeds strikers a sniff really.

Spence – 7 Does the job, quick and just gets rid of the ball, seems to have good partnership with Mkandawire.

Daniels – 6 Not a defender and that is easy to see, but does well going forward but frustrates with some of his set plays. Looked nervous after getting booked.

Cave-Brown – 6 got caught out a little and kept dragging inside which then gave Leeds a lot of space on the wings but will be a good player, and it was his first game for a while so bound to be rusty.

Morgan – 8 Had a great game, chased back and looked dangerous on the ball, yet again showed his quality which makes it even more frustating when does not show all the time. Looking for contract and performances like this can only help.

Thornton – 8 close second for man of match, did so much work for the team and last 20 minutes seemed to be everywhere. Good free kick led to first goal.

Smith – 7 looks so much better now in natural position in the centre. Passing is quality and nearly always find a man and also not afraid to get stuck in.

Demetriou – 4 Didn’t really do much on the right and too often just runs and does not seem to know what he was doing and then tries to many tricks, sent off for handball on line that looked debateable.

Church – 8 Does so much running for the team, always chasing even when looks it like lost causes. 2 goals here and since first goal has looked so much more confident.

Gray – 6 Didn’t really get into the game, won few headers and slowly getting back to fitness.
