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..
UP THE O’s.
It’s never happened before, and you’ll probably never see it happen again… But here it is…
After last night’s crazy cup game v Droylesden which finished 8-2 to the O’s after trailing 2-0 with 13 minutes of normal time remaining.

Theo the Orient mascot is celebrating his 10th birthday this year and by way of celebrating has decided to raise some money for Macmillan Cancer Research. For the recent home league match with Brentford, he invited some fellow ‘mascots’ (you mean they’re not real??) over to Brisbane Road to have some fun along the way.
Help Theo Raise Money - or he could threaten to sing!!

This story caught my eye recently on twitter, but sadly it turned out to be a throwaway remark gone wrong!!
Apparently someone on an Everton message board got the wrong end of the stick, took it seriously and thought it bizarre that a small team like Leyton orient could turn down an £8 million fee for a player. We should be so lucky.
My thanks to offthepost.info for the report below.
Afterthought… How many flats can you build for £8 million?
Just heard via @OrientMeatPie on Twitter, confirmed on the orient website. It’s hard to say if this is a good decision or not, the assistant manager Kevin Nugent will take over for the game on monday at Southampton, maybe someone else will come in after monday, but they will have six games to turn it round and keep us in League One.
It’s unusual for Hearn act this quickly, many would say he kept Taylor, Brush and Ling on far too long when results were going against them.
That said, losing home games by todays score is UNNACCEPTABLE, and i understand the performance was awful. ‘Abysmal’ in Hearns words which you can read below..
FROM leytonorient.com –
LEYTON ORIENT have parted company with manager Geraint Williams following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Hartlepool United.
The result leaves Orient one point above the League One relegation zone with only one win in their last 11 games.
O’s chairman Barry Hearn said: “The peformance against Hartlepool was abysmal and ultimately the responsibility for that lies with the manager.
“We’re on a dreadful run of form and this decision has been taken in order to give us the best chance of staying in League One.
“Geraint is as honest and professional a manager as you will find in football and it’s unfortunate things have not worked out, but I thank him for his efforts and I wish him every success in the future.”
Kevin Nugent will take charge of the O’s for Monday’s game at Southampton.
