O'Toole Watch

O'Toole Watch

With not a lot going on in the football world today, other than a few internationls and some 'pay-over-the-odds-to-view-pointless-qualifier-with-typically-over-the-top-price-match' on. I decided to travel to Leyton, and Brisbane Road, home of Leyton Orient.

The O's were at home to Aidy Boothroyd's Colchester United, and if you're clued up on your League One loans, then John-Joe O'Toole became Aidy's first signing for the U's. So with the the possibility of cheap entry and getting my football fix I tubed it to Leyton Orient.

NB. I paid £20 to get in, which is a fiddle at L1 level right? But if Q.P.R are charging £35 and Chelski£$ £40-£50, then I guess all things are relative.

Anyway, O'Toole watch. He did ok to be honest, and was desperately unlucky not to score a sublime volley from just inside the penalty area. As it was sub 'keeper Glenn Morris did equally well to see it round the post.

Other than one hospital pass to Jimmy Smith, John-Joe saw more of the ball than during his period in the first team here and looked bright going forward supplying the ball where needed and making options.

Late on he did his best to become 'Leyton's most wanted' as he fell over Andros Townsend to win the Spurs loanee a booking and also spent most of the six minutes overtime holding the ball, unsuccessfully in the corner.

It's worth noting that a certain Mr Boothroyd was not popular for his time-wasting tactics. IE. Subbing players on the far side of the pitch late on. But unbeaten in the seven since he arrived an in the top six, not to be argued with.

NB. John-Joe has scored one goal for the U's on loan and will return to Vicarage Road for the January Transfer Window following his 90 day loan at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Very interesting. Good to see Aidy's made a decent start at Colchester and that JJOT is playing well. I guess it's all about his attitude but he's only a youngster and goalscoring midfielders are not easy to come by. Hope we don't let him go for a song....
