Martin’s Musings on SAFC v Tottenham Hotspur: we never gave up

Jake want a repeat of the Boxing Day scoreline

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2: Cats fail to hold on as Spurs fight back

Com back tomorrow for the Coventry edition of Pete Sixsmith;s outstanding series on his visits to opponents' grounds

After the attempts of the hackers to prevent you seeing Pete Sixsmith’s seven word assessment we are back up and running thanks to the techie wizards.

Sixer’s Sentiments: pots, kettles, lies, damned lies and statistics

Jake keeps the post revolution Red Flag flying

With Year 8 otherwise occupied finishing off their selection boxes whilst playing on their i-pads, Pete Sixsmith has time to study the financial pages of The Guardian.

Robson Report: Chelsea, now Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers, conjure managerial mayhem

Jake on the art of communication

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sunderland 1 Man City 0 extra gifts on Boxing Day

Jake suspects that a challenge looms

Malcolm Dawson writes….The result at Southampton brought us some Christmas cheer but if truth be told I wasn’t full of optimism (when am I you may well ask) as I took my seat before the Boxing Day game. After all we were facing a quality team whilst our boys had been misfiring all season long, […]
