Matt Withers is joined by Dave Evans, George Sessions and Jacob Ranson for another East London Football Podcast.
It was a week of misery for our east London clubs with West Ham United being thrashed 5-0 by champions Manchester City while Leyton Orient and Dagenham & Redbridge both suffered back-to-back defeats.
Hammers reporter Dave Evans remains confident they can have a top six finish in the Premier League despite their thrashing on the opening day.
He joined Matt Withers, Leyton Orient correspondent George Sessions and Jacob Ranson, who talked Dagenham & Redbridge, on this week's East London Football Podcast.
