I can't see the sort of outrageous thrashing some are predicting.

You have to go back to December 17th for a game when Orient beat anyone in the top half of the table, and to December 3rd to find a game when they've scored more than 2 goals. They've won only 4 of their last 10 games, losing 3 and drawing 3. That game at the beginning of December against Bradford is the only one all season they've won with a margin bigger than 2 goals (they've not got 4 or 5 against anyone all season). If Grimsby can put two past them last week then we should score one of two.

If Iandolo isn't fit then I'd expect us to play Kadji and Clayton at CB, Hutton and Tomlinson at FB, or a five with Lavinier coming in on the left it fit and everyone shifting over. Minturn is going to have to be on the bench this time though.

Forward of that we've got decent options in midfield and up front.

Does say much for Minturn if he is the only fit CB at the club but still canít get a game!

Is Clayton out as well now FFS? Or did you mean one of the two fit CBs?

No, I classed Clayton as a CB/DM. That was how he was originally touted.

But everytime he's played for us it's been at CB hasn't it?

I see the games a full sell out now. Amazing what momentum can do in football- just last December when we played them the crowd was 4,020 (with just 3,065 home fans). Hopefully we can spoil their big day.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a centre half to enter into the kingdom of Swindon

I think we have to play Clayton and Minturn Saturday as a pair. Question is, do we then add Kadji to persist with three at the back or do we go with a back four?

How pissed off did he sound anyone?
Sounds quite annoyed from the quotes, will have to wait for the LS Pod presser to drop to know for sure on his mood/tone.

Side note, the usual away pub The Leyton Technical is closed now.

Listening to the Pod now, they're (half jokingly) talking about whether Morris is going to walk. Describing him as exasperated rather than furious though.

Feels like a big week or two for the admin side of the club. Fingers crossed everything drops into place.

I take it you mean for Town fans? how many were we allocated?

Orient have had 7 crowds of 8k+ with their biggest being 8,716 vs Northampton in October, their core home average is around 7,400 for Saturday matches. The overall capacity there is 9,271.

9,045 with 1,250 Town fans there.

Be genuinely shocked if we can even grab a point there.

They dismantled us last season with ease at Brisbane Road 4-1 yet in the home game this term looked a decent side and a bit better than us at the time but nothing exceptional IMO in the 1-1 draw.

It has sold out for home fans too - away allocation was stated as 1,000.

Where are people heading pre match?

Nope, full house.


Think we got 1,250 tickets.

What happened to Whelan saying big changes were coming in the next week or so, around 2 weeks ago?
