OH THE CRUELTY OF IT ALL!
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.
