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″

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..
UP THE O’s.

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.
