Stadium Brisbane Road
Time at Club:
Leyton Orient have sacked Alberto Cavasin, and replaced him with Andy Edwards until the end of the season. The Italian lasted just 10 games and 53 days at the helm.
Cavasin was appointed in October 2016 following the sacking of Andy Hessenthaler. Hessenthaler became the first boss to be axed from the top-4 tiers of English football (2016/17) after losing his job September, with former Sampdoria manager Cavasin coming in the other direction.
Leyton Orient were founded in 1881 and have spent every season bar one outside of the top-flight of the English football structure. Under new owner Francesco Becchetti the O's will be bidding to recover from their relegation down to the bottom-tier by returning to League One.
Orient have hit the headlines in recent years with their bid to become tenants of the Olympic Stadium and their opposition to the move by West Ham. Former owner Barry Hearn argued that should the Hammers head to the Olympic Stadium it will have a direct impact on the attendances at Brisbane Road which could threaten the future of the clubs very existence.
A losing record in a binary last 10 games has seen Leyton Orient endure a period of poorer form. Invaluable wins against Colchester United and Hartlepool United has seen them keep their heads above water, but reversals against Doncaster Rovers, Exeter City, Blackpool, , Sheffield United, Crewe Alexandra, Luton Town and Portsmouth has put them on the slide.
