Just glad somebody appreciates his obvious talent.
Pity McGreal didn't. Macca could turn out to be a star in the making. He only needed to be handled with care which did not include 2 minutes at the end of each game.

Precisement.... As dear old Poirot would say. Our loss is Orient's gain both in exiting the National and in financial terms. I do wish we were better at managing these young players. Ah well.....

Just watched this on BT replay. Did his agent commission this deluded self-promotional profile/advertisement? Frankly, I have never previously seen anything like it. Concludes with his father suggesting that "he should be playing for Man Utd or Barcelona" and Macca stating an ambition of playing "at least in the Championship in five-years time".

Rejected by Ipswich; brought to WHCS by Tony Humes; Can't get in the U's team under Humes or any other management. Finds his level in the Conference where another former prolific scorer at that level now struggles to get off the bench (Dan Holman) having had EFL opportunity after leaving the U's. It is possible for players to have unlucky career breaks. But some are just not good enough. OK, he did play against Premiership players when he featured for Zimbabwe against Morocco. But is playing against them the same as playing with them?

I wish him well, but fear this TV profile won't convince anybody. But if Freddie Lapado can rekindle his career I suppose Macca can. But after so many goals for Orient, why no bidders?

The flat track bully scored a hat-trick against Braintree tonight, as Orient win 5-1 in front of a 2,574 crowd at Braintree.

Yes, we just never gave the lad a proper run Mick. Good luck to him.

My views on Macca Bonne are very clear - I consider it a disgrace that he was allowed to go after not being given a fair chance.

Still we move on. Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe (currently on loan at Bromley until January) is the next young talented striker who will require careful management by our Club.

JMc has an embarrassment of riches with Norris, Nouble, Mandron, Collins, Szmodics and Junior all capable of playing and scoring goals. This is all good news.

They must be deployed sensibly and used to maximum effect this season if we are to achieve promotion back to League One.

Bring on the Shakers.

Bonne scored a hat trick at Braintree last night and is top scorer in the National League. You could argue he's found his level but you could also argue Col U have missed out by letting him go without really seeing what he could do. Either way, Orient will be getting a decent fee at some point if Bonne keeps up the good work. Hope we get a slice too.

Personally I was never impressed by Bonne. Flattered to deceive in my opinion rather like Jamie Guy.
Clubs judgement has been accurate with Guy and Holman for that matter.
I understand Bonne wanted the move not us and we have a sell on clause. Strange nobody came in for him in the summer.
A big step up from National League to even Div 2.
Our friends up the road are finding players struggle to make the step up from Div 1 and 2 to Championship.

Have to agree also - more than enough Col U managers had the opportunity to run the rule over Bonne, and none of them saw enough to make him a regular first team choice. Sometimes these things do end up biting you on the @rse, when players finally come good further down the pyramid, and I genuinely wish him well in his career, but that's how it goes I guess?
