Stadium Brisbane Road
Time at Club:
Leyton Orient appointed Alberto Cavasin as their new manager following the sacking of Andy Hessenthaler. This season Hessenthaler became the first boss to be axed from the top-4 tiers of English football, and was eventually replaced on October 2 by Cavasin, a former Sampdoria manager.
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 mixed set of recent results has seen Leyton Orient collect wins versus Hartlepool United and Morecambe while suffering adverse results at Luton Town, Portsmouth, Southend United, Plymouth Argyle, Notts County and Yeovil Town. Draws against Barnet and Carlisle United has seen them show mid-table form at best.
