Kevin Nolan heads to the Orient

Best of luck to Kevin Nolan as player-manager of Leyton Orient. Yes, he was played when way past his best last season, but we can't really blame him for that. He never complained despite a lot of abuse from the stands, always tried his best and was clearly a very good captain. In the early years his goals helped us win promotion from the Championship and then consolidate in the Premier League. We won't be missing his clucking chicken dance though. Hope he does well in the far East.

Hear, hear. Very good signing by SA. Served us well, scored some great goals, hasn't slagged off the club at all, or (to my knowledge) the fans who gave him so much grief. Personally I will miss his chicken dance coz I loved the way it would piss off the opposing support - and players.

Yes, the chicken dance was so bad it was good in a strange kind of way...
