Jake comes up with a new design

This is the slot for Pete Sixmsith‘s instant verdicts on the great many Sunderland games he attends. An early lead from Emanuele Giaccherini’s header must have given Sixer hope that his pre-match pessimism was unwarranted. But 87 minutes of normal time, plus the extras, is an awful long time to defend a slender advantage. With possession squandered repeatedly and Saints applying more and more pressure, holding out proved beyond us. On the balance of play, it was hard to complain too loudly, Pete will be having his considered say later. For today, he’s happier with the draw than with what he saw …

Don't do this to us, pelads Jake

The point was better than the performance

August 17 2013 SAFC (0) 0 Fulham (0) 1 Ultimately little difference from previous two seasons

    Yep. I watched it on TV. Thought S’ton looked very, very good. We defended well but S’ton deserved their goal it has to be said.
    Sess was annoymous (again and was rightly subbed), Ji wasn’t much better (still a bit timid in my book) and JOhnson had an off day too. Gardner almost never touched the ball first half. Too many players didn’t perform (including Altidore).
    So, not so encouraging.
    If you’d offered me the point beforehand I might have taken it, but being a S’land fan, I half expect to concede in the last minute.
    Lets hope we raise our game for Palace.
    I was impressed with S’ton tho.

    Diakite looked clumsy, sort of Bramble-esque but he made some important challenges. I fancied Roberge in there but Roberge v Lambert in the air would have been a loser for us. Whats happened to Cabral and Brown. I think we missed Cabral.
