Moses Odubajo: Keen to repay Slade

The 20-year-old was a target for a host of clubs last term after bursting into the O's first team, but following talks with Slade he instead penned a new contract in February keeping him at Brisbane Road until 2015.

"The manager said I needed to be playing first-team football at my age and that he didn't think I'd get that elsewhere and that I wouldn't want to be playing in the reserves because I'm better than that," said Odubajo.

"It was a great feeling knowing that he trusted me that much in my first season in League One, so I owe it to him."

Odubajo opened his goalscoring account this term in the 3-0 win over Shrewsbury on Saturday which kept Orient at the top of the early-season table.

He added: "I feel like I've started to improve my end product which wasn't the best at times last season, and I want to score more goals too."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
