Orient: Club for a Fiver

I learnt about this documentary while watching the sports pages. It was mentioned a few times. This documentary deals with Leyton Orient Football Club during a season in which they got plunged into a financial crisis. The chairman famously sold the club for 5 pounds, hence the title.

There are a few scenes that depict half time talks by a football manager after an abject performance. These scenes are the highlight of the documentary and have elevated the manager, John Sitton to legendary status. That he was a newbie who didn't know what he was doing is somewhat besides the point. It goes without saying that a lot of strong language is used in these scenes.
