Leyton Orient 1 Charlton 3, 14/8/10

A game in which... Orient embarked on a new tactical era. Over the last 10 years strategic policy at Brisbane Road has apparently been to pack the team full of players under 5ft 6in and then lump a high ball into the box and hope for the best. Under Russell Slade we now have a number of 6ft-plus behemoths in the side, towards which we lump a high ball and hope for the best.

Actually, to be fair, in the first 30 minutes or so Orient passed the ball around with some purpose, before the age-old problems (inability to break opposing sides down, no width) reared their ugly head.

Moment to savour... It's an unusual gambit to leave the mascot on the pitch once the game has kicked off, but it paid off, as 11-year-old schoolboy Dean Cox put in a delightful curling cross to allow Scott McGleish to score.

Head in hands moment... Matthew Spring's second corner which, identically to his first, was aimed directly at the nearest Charlton player. So for Orient this season it looks like "success from a corner" is going to be limited to a trouble-free purchase of The Sun from a local newsagent.

King for a day... New captain Stephen Dawson showed great endeavour in midfield in his home debut. He also seemed a pretty adept mime artist, as he recreated Alan McCormack's penalty-area handball for the benefit of all four corners of the ground.

Boo boy... In the spirit of giving fresh, young talent a chance to flourish, the West Stand was fully behind youth team graduate Mike Cestor for all of three minutes, before verbally tearing him apart for a couple of ponderous moments. Still, there's much to admire in Cestor - he will get better.

In the dug out... Russell Slade, as ever looking like a benevolent if somewhat world-weary PE teacher at a local comprehensive, adopted a formation which apparently tasked all four midfielders with running in a straight line down the middle. Strange decision to leave Tehoue on the bench and bring on Porter too. The jury's still out...

You're supposed to be away... Poor turn out from the Charlton fans and little inventiveness in their chanting - 'We're top of the league' being the best shot. Not for long...

What would Martin Ling have done? Promised in the post-match interview that he would continue his search for an 'even bigger' striker, before making an audacious midweek attempt to buy Julian Joachim from Hinkley United, claiming 'He can do a job for us."

Going down? Losing to Charlton isn't a catastrophe and there were enough positives in the first half to suggest Orient could well make that coveted 20th spot their own once again this season.

    1. Một lát sau, tòa cung điện kiến trúc hình tháp đã hiện ra trước mặt hắn, nhìn tào cung điện kiến trúc này, Nhạc Thành cảm nhận được tuyệt đối không phải là kiến trúc trên Huyền thiên đại lục.

      Mà điều khiến cho Nhạc Thành rung động chính là tòa kiến trúc này tuyệt đối là kiến trúc ở Hoa Hạ, ngói vàng nắp đỉnh, như một tòađồng tâm

      chém gió Kim Loan điện.

      Phía trước có mười cột đá, mỗi cột đều điêu khắc hai con cự lòng, một con ở trên, một con ở dưới, bọn chúng đang quay cuồng bốc lên, đằng vân giá vũ, chính giữa chính là một cột đá trên cột đá chính là một hạt châu phát ra quang mang, linh khí tràn ngập chính là do hạt châu này phát ra.

      Mà chín cột đá khác cũng có miệng rãnh, tựa hồ như có bảo vật gì đó đã bị người ta lấy đi.

      Nhìn thấy hạt châu này, ánh mắt của Nhạc Thành hiện lên một vẻ kỳ dị, giống như đã nhìn thấy tin tức liên quan đến nó, rồi lại lập tức nghĩ không ra. Tuy nhiên suy nghĩ này khiến cho Nhạc Thành càng thêm tò mò với cung điện.

      - Không ngờ ngươi cũng vào được, hừ hừ, xem lần này ngươi trốn đi đâu.

      Một tiếng cười âm lệ vang lên, sau đó hai thân ảnh đi tới gần Nhạc Thành, chính là hai hắc y nhân.
