Leyton Orient 3 Exeter City 0, 28/8/10

A game in which... Orient began the game like a ravenous mouse out to devour Exeter's Swiss cheese of a defence. Still, when an opposition teamsheet bears the name Billy Jones - the second Matt Lockwood understudy to return to Brisbane Road in a week - there's always going to be chances. Eventually Orient took three of them in a convincing and comfortable win.

Moment to savour... Dean Cox's celebration after his sumptuous goal, in which he was greeted by Russell Slade in the manner of a proud grandfather about to reward his six-year-old grandson with a packet of Werthers Originals for coming third in the school egg-and-spoon race.

Head in hands moment... It's not often that Scotty McGleish misses the target from six yards with his head - that's Ryan Jarvis's job - but he did so in the first half, before making amends in the second.

King for a day... Chorley, Revell and McGleish all shone, but it's hard to look beyond another all-action display by captain Stephen Dawson, who nearly scored a wonder volley in the first minute and was class throughout.

Boo boy... Elliot Omozusi appears to be following in the tradition of sporadically ponderous Orient right backs - Stephen Purches, Justin Miller, Donny Barnard - and while mostly solid during this game, still has a bit of convincing to do.

In the dug out... Big Russ has developed a habit of looking to the heavens - or, more specifically, directly at Barry Hearn sat in the exec seats - whenever Orient score. Presumably when we next concede he'll hide behind Kevin Nugent and squeak, "It was his fault, it was his fault."  

You're supposed to be away... According to their scarves, Exeter City are the 'Pride of Devon'. Well, there isn't much else to be proud of in the county (Barnstaple town centre? Traffic jams on the A30?) Still, the Grecians at least showed a bit of gallows humour by launching into "We can see you sneaking out" while 3-0 down.

What would Martin Ling have done? Taken the opportunity of being 3-0 up to make a final attempt to 'blood' Derek Duncan, claiming "He's got a big career ahead of him."

Going down? Well, if Orient can't beat Exeter at home then there really is no hope. But they did - and with some style - so still look nailed on for the safety of 20th spot.

      - Thập Tam, ngươi nhìn mỹ nhân xinh đẹp kia đi, hình như bị thương, chúng ta cho dù không ra được thì ở nơi này vui đùa với nàng ta cũng tốt.

      Thập Tứ hộ pháp nhìn Yêu Huyên trong tay Nhạc Thành nói.

      - Đây chính là bát sí linh mãng, thân hình rất mềm mại, lần trước còn làm ta bị thương.

      - Bát Sí linh mãng, đây chính là Viễn cổ ma thú, hắc hắc, ta vẫn chưa từng chạm vào Viễn Cổ Ma thú, không biết là lại xinh đẹp như vậy.

      - Thập Tứ, chúng ta bắt tên tiểu tử này rồi nói sau.

      Thập Tam hộ pháp cười lạnh một tiếng, hắc mang khủng bố sau lưng lao về phía Nhạc Thành.

      Mà Thập Tứ hộ pháp cũng cười lạnh sau đó toàn thân bao trùm hắc mang, trong tay một khí tức cường hãn đánh về phía Nhạc Thành.

      - Đáng chết.

  2. I have to defend Justin Miller. Yea, I know he had defensive mistakes in his game but he was a fine passer of the ball. He connected the back line to the offense and did not just always kick the ball as long and as far as he could.
    I think Charlie Daniels played great today and I hope his injury which he picked up is not major. Lastly, when is the last time both forwards scored a goal in an Orient match?

  3. Don't get me wrong, I liked Miller, Barnard and even Purches, but there's no denying all three had occasional moments where they switched off... For the most part Omozusi looks the business but I still reckon he's the weak link in our defence this season.

  8. I would like to look at a couple of specifics to at least question the practicality
    of the Macbook Pollution. The specific Air also comes with
    a backlit keyboard, a feature dismissed in the macbook Air introduction of
    last fall.

  9. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  10. There are now select plastic surgeons that offer affordable payment plans on their plastic surgery procedures for their clients.
    Some of the popular cosmetic surgery procedures - notably the head lift - are popular attributable to aging skin circumstances
    accelerated by experience of the sun. The replacement device is called the Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter and is quite strong.

  12. Running the compressor of the above room air conditioners involves high electricity consumptions
    and bills. Adding a pinch of baking soda to tomato
    sauce will reduce the acidity. As they are huge, RVs also have a huge checklist of parts and components that you
    need to inspect after long storage to ensure smooth and safe driving.
