Remember the time when the men could be expected to go out and do the business? Not that long ago. Now, they are under heavy pressure – largely of their own making – to finish the season with a belated flourish, at Craven Cottage on Sunday and at home to the confirmed or would-be champions […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: all square versus Bolton as Wigan run riot

This was another game that we might have expected to win. Since the MON revolution got off to such a fantastic start, the reality of the squad’s capabilities is maybe beginning to show.

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 2 Bolton Wanderers 2. Excellent goals, no glory

Jake wants answers: click his image to see how fans of other clubs have handled the Who are You? series this season

No sooner had ”Bob” supplied his answers for the Bolton Wanderers ”Who are You?” than our old friend Howard Page – doubtless fired by events at Villa Park – overcame pressure of work and did likewise. Salut! Sunderland policy is straightforward: if a supporter takes the trouble to answer our questions, we ensure the effort […]

The SAFC v Bolton Who are You?: ‘we could become another Portsmouth’

a reminder of recent times

They’re a cagey lot over and down a bit in Bolton. We’re hoping for a double on Saturday; they already have one. Just as before the game at the Reebok, we have a great set of replies – and a request for anonymity that survived even the euphoria of a mightily important win at Villa […]
