OH THE CRU­ELTY OF IT ALL!

The Football League Paper - - NEWS -

HOR­RI­FY­ING scenes at Ley­ton Ori­ent, whose play­ers and staff have been pun­ished for their poor form by be­ing or­dered to stay in a £100a-night ho­tel.

Room ser­vice. Three meals a day. On-site gym and swim­ming pool. It’s like some­thing out of the mid­dle ages.

And it makes you won­der – what’s com­ing next? Saunas at gun­point? Chain-gang trips to The Ivy? Whipped all the way to Al­ton Tow­ers?

In an era when foot­ballers are ac­cused of be­ing spoilt rot­ten, it’s good to know clubs like Ori­ent and owner Francesco Bec­chetti can still hand out a good, old­fash­ioned rol­lick­ing.
