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 http://www.site..

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… http://www.leytonorient.com

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.

Leyton Orient 4 Colchester 2 – Russel Slade reaction

3 Jan

Goals from Jimmy Smith, Alex Revell, Paul Jose-Empoku and Jonathan Tehoue helped the Eastender’s to a 4-2 win over their Essex neighbours and revenged the defeat earlier in the season when the O’s led 2-0 early on but lost 3-2. After the game Russel Slade spoke to BBC London and this is a snapshot of  what he said…


“we showed great character, to come back from  saturday’s result at Brighton, we were better in the first half and in the second it was end to end, on another day we could have won more comfortable, Dean Cox played well, and Jimmy. Jamie will want to forget about that goal. But credit, we were under pressure at 3-2 and we went down the other end and made it 4-2. It’s pleasing that the guys can come off the bench and score. Colchester have only conceded 7 away from home before today, and we’ve scored 4 against them…”


Orient moved up to 17th in the table with 27 points, 5 clear of the relegation zone, and only 6 points off the play-offs! Well stranger things have happened… Next up Norwich away in the FA Cup. Up The O’s

It’s never happened before, and you’ll probably never see it happen again… But here it is…

My thanks to @therealhicksy on twitter for this pic. I have another one on my home pc to post later on!

Droylesden 1 Leyton Orient 1 – FINAL SCORE

29 Nov

Sustained pressure from orient in second half saw the o’s grab an overdue equalizer, credited as an own goal by keeper Phillips (the BBC have given it to Scotty, expect that to be corrected in the morning),  and the east londoners looked most likely to grab a winner, but it was not to be and a replay will be staged back at Brisbane Road… More reports tomorrow…
