Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 0 Fulham 0


This is where Pete Sixsmith captures the glory and shame, hope and despair, excitement and ennui of the Sunderland matchday experience. When, rarely, Pete is absent or delayed, a supersub does it for him and the seven-word verdict is preceded by an asterisk. Pete’s full analysis of the game will usually appear within a day or two.

The full Sixer’s Sevens archive – see link below – sums up what all Sunderland supporters feel, from darkest gloom to sublime elation, in the words one who is usually there …

Nov 19 2011 SAFC (0) 0 Fulham (0) 0 Truly appalling game lacking pace, creativity, threat

Nov 5 2011 Manchester United (1) 1 SAFC (0) 0 Decent performance but slipshod defending cost us

Oct 29 2011 SAFC 2 (1) Aston Villa 2 (1) … Determination and effort produced a fair result

Oct 22 2011 Bolton Wanderers (0) 0 SAFC (0) 2 … Team selection vindicated in impressive second half

Oct 16 2011 Arsenal (1) 2 SAFC (1) 1 Defended bravely but attacking options barely existed

Oct 1 2011 SAFC (2) 2 West Bromwich Albion (2) 2 Deserved point after a truly horrendous start

    Could have been worse; needed sharper finishing.

    Uninspired, unimaginative team selection and incomprehensible substitutions.

    I suppose we won’t get Bruce’s Banter this week. But my guess is that he’s disappointed.

    Wrong and wrong again! We did get the Banter and he didn’t say he’s disappointed! I am, though.

  5. Jeremy November 20, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

    I’m disappointed with Bruce.

    SESS was brilliant again wish I could say the same for Bruces selections get him out like I said six weeks ago his record is disgusting at SAFC and he should be a shamed of himself do the right thing anleave now you muppet

    Don’t know if I am imagining it, but I had a sense in Bruce’s Match of the Day interview, that he knew the game was up. I hope there might be an announcement this week.

    There have been several occasions Hilary when I assumed the same as you. Unfortunately that has happened so frequently without a response that I really wonder if we’ll ever see the back of him. It may take a mid winter defeat by the Pools Panel to get shot of him, or another draw. Defeat to Wolves and we are truly amidst the dead men. Can you see this lot beating Mick’s men?
    It’s a stretch of the imagination isn’t it?
