I go to Field Mill in hope more than anything. We can't buy a goal at the minute, but we've got a decent clean sheets record.

Unless we have injuries, we'll probably be unchanged.

Thought we would smash Morecambe (twice), thought we would lose to Carlisle - going to stop predicting and just enjoy the game this Tuesday!

(I reckon we’ll edge it 2-1)

Seeing as its school holidays I'd say between 300-400, we took 205 to Plymouth last week on a Tuesday so it will be more than that.

My mates driving me up to this one and back, usually we stay over but shouldn't be anymore than a 3 hour drive there and back.

400 be a good effort for a Tuesday.

Bit worried about Bishop being a doubt, it leaves us seriously short in midfield after Mellis and Donohue club suspension and at his age you don’t want to take risks with him.

I haven't seen us play Leyton Orient in at least a decade. I seem to vaguely recall a late goal from a short, tubbyish winger, possibly a set piece but my search of previous match reports doesn't seem to be shedding any light. Could be getting it confused with another club.

That second penalty reminded me of the World Cup and the treatment Harry Kane got from the Panama players - absolute amateur hour.

Losing at home to Leyton orient. Wow.

In fairness sounded like they worked us out 2nd half we collapsed and had no reply. No midfield and no fight - heard there was a collection for the family of Justin Edinburgh or whatever foundation there is so I hope that was supported well.

Thoroughly abysmal. Sounded yet another clanger by Logan as well.

First half we were decent enough and the penalties looked good decisions to me and we went in with a deserved 2-0 lead, second half we started brilliantly and was carving Orient up but we didn’t take advantage, then they had a bit of pressure and got a goal which was coming.

The next bit is where the management seriously fucked up, they took Khan off (who Orient could not get near) and brought on a youth graduate to become defensive to hold on to our lead, Orient to their credit piled on the pressure then Angol scored entirely due to the fact our goalkeeper is the biggest liability going, then the third was just a blur but fair play to Orient they deserved it even though we brought it upon ourselves.

Very dejected and disappointed though, Orient are clearly lacking in quality and we were absolutely cruising to a 4-0 before the 60th minute.

Well I didn't expect that, not after the impressive victory , clean sheet and defensive masterclass at the weekend.

Classic lower league football to go 2-0 up early and then go on to lose at home to a team bang out of form.

Ha. A fucking Mansfield fan getting Bertie Big Balls about losing to Orient. Laughable stuff.

We are so very, very much better when playing 4-4-2. Got to ditch one of the centre backs, unfortunately. Going to be a tough decision for Embleton to choose which one.

Hard to take all considered to be fair, I laughed hysterically when the 3rd went in then thrashed my motor home very aggressively :lol:

Top of the league at half time, 13th by full time!

The young lads that were brought on were miles off, unfortunately. Smith had zero impact on the game. I don't blame him necessarily but surely there are better options on the bench. You don't bring him on when you are leading 2-0 and the opposition have just scored. He doesn't have the experience to take the game by the scruff of the neck. It's unfair to bring him in this way. Clarke was miles out of position for their third goal.

Gordon was busy and looked decent, although seemed a little unpolished. CJ was garbage when he came on, he is not a striker in any way shape or form. This CJ as a striker experiment should be over by now.

Exactly, 2-0 up to a side short of confidence and losing 3-0 to macc also of late, and our manager goes and does that, wtf.

Not the best half of football we’ve ever played

Did you see our bench? We had no decent options other than CJ but he’s still in Ibiza.

We started the second so well, Orient were clinging on for dear life then it all went wrong, manager gotta take responsibility for losing the points, Logan didn’t help letting Angol put it through his legs at a ridiculous angle mind.

Can we stop the Logan pretending to be a keeper experiment as well?

Away from the craziness of Stagsnet, what do you lot reckon on here about Logan? IMO he makes everyone the players included nervous and he should be dropped immediately.

He’s by far the biggest liability, if I see that Angol goal again I’ll enter cardiac arrest.

The problem with Logan is;
1. He cannot command his area
2. He cannot get down quick enough

Two really big factors when trying to be a keeper.
