A round up of social media posts from O’s supporters on what they expect when Lisbie returns plus much more
The fixtures for the new League Two season were announced today and it was confirmed that Leyton Orient would host newly promoted Barnet for the season opener.
It means Kevin Lisbie will return to Brisbane Road just months following his departure after not being offered a new contract, whilst Ian Hendon will be up against his former club.
Hendon captained and managed the Bees during a lengthy affiliation with the north London club and will take charge of O’s for the first time competitively against them.
The reaction to the opening fixture and the other matches was mixed with a lot of supporters already predicting what will occur on the opening day.
