    Are we really still paying Jonothan Forte? I assumed that there was some sort of insurance payout so we didn't have to pay him anymore.

    What is the keeper doing for Sweeney's goal? Did Nicky Law's decoy run put him off that much?

    Which is why it was such an inspired substitution to bring on Ben Seymour. Having handled the big strikers so well Coulson couldn't adapt to the different challenge of a small, nippy striker and gave away the penalty.

    The way the game was reffed was somewhat reminiscent of Brett Huxtable. Lots of fussy, look-at-me decision making in the first half but getting the key decision wrong followed by not having the bottle to send any Orient players off in the second-half.

    After the red cards for managers were introduced there seemed to be a brief period when there was less abuse of the fourth referee. However, that didn't last long and you wonder what the point of having rules for disciplining managers is if they are not going to be used.

    That's some serious re-writing of history. We went 8 league games without a win with Aaron Martin playing in seven of them. The run culminated in the Bury game after which he was dropped and then won four of the next 5. I know there is a lot of love for Aaron Martin and many fans think he has...

    The combination of conceding some unfortunate goals, weak refereeing and several senior players not quite at their best meant that this was a game that would have been easy to lose. Will be interesting to see how we react against Port Vale. If we have another off day then it might be time to...

    Exeter City v Leyton Orient Match Day Thread.

    We have a strong squad this year so there is going to be competition for places. When you have a player as good as Tom Parkes on the bench then the players who are keeping him out of the team are going to be scrutinised. As for the others you mention, Lee Martin wasn't at his best today and we...

    Martin Ling is Orient's Director of Football so presumably he was back at the park. And apparently the Orient right back who was so lucky to stay on the pitch is his son.

    Why do I need to be an assessor to know that if the ball is already out of play and you then boot it out of the stadium it should be a booking?

    Surprised there hasn't been more fuss about Seymour making his debut. Great to see the next cab off the academy rank getting his chance and having a real impact; also love his confidence and the way he wanted to take the penalty.

    Matt Taylor made exactly this point in his interview and although he didn't name names it was fairly clear he was talking about Aaron Martin. Big call to sub him off but can't be a co-incidence we dominated possession after Parkes came on. If Parkes can avoid elbowing any more players I expect...

    Agreed, looking back at that team the keeper, defence and attack look strong with four of them now playing at the top end of League 1 or higher. Howver, our current midfield looks much stronger.

    Seems to be a lot of confidence on here about the result. Leyton Orient are still finding their feet in League 2 but I think they still have the makings of a decent team and we are surely due a disappointing performance and a bad result.

    Sorry, I missed Woodman so it's actually the same number of current City players on either side that day.

    More current City players on the pitch for Orient than for City that day.

    2019/20 kits

    The black shirt looks fine but not a fan of those red shorts. Also I'm confused as I thought the whole point of a change kit was to avoid a clash with teams playing in red and//or white.

    Good report so it's just a shame that they are still getting Josh Key's name wrong.

    Devin Live would be proud. The two articles are written by the same person but can't agree on who scored the first goal and consistently get the name of one of our players wrong.

    Bury fan in peace.

    The issue is that hardly any of these clubs are sustainable.
