Crystal Palace vs SAFC ‘Who are You?’: on recovering from Liverpool’s nine

Jake: get stuck in for a brighter start, Lads

The Eagles Beak* is a fine Crystal Palace fan site, not infallible on apostrophes as you can see but a place accommodating enough to allow Pete Sixsmith to ramble on about why he dislikes Palace. It was created and is edited by Jay Crame*, who joins us now for the latest edition of ‘Who are […]

Cabral: curious case of CL player begging to ‘train with the kids’

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

Cabral’s acquisition was one even Paolo Di Canio was thrilled by. A player of Champions League pedigree, he played well when given early spells of action but was abruptly dropped. Then he may as well have disappeared from Wearside, never to return. Now, Gus Poyet has made some utterly mystifying comments of his own without […]

McCormick’s Craic: no Bright Phoenix as Arsenal take the points

Jake says "It's gonna be a long hard season!"

Last Wednesday I went to the Everyman theatre to see Bright Phoenix, a play about a group of misfit kids who become misfit adults. With an Everyman play like that I didn’t know what to expect. Whatever I thought, it wasn’t what I got … (more…)

Sunderland’s Lasses soak up the glory

Jake says "Ha'way The Lasses"!

Never let anyone tell you women’s football lacks the passion of the men’s game. Just take a look at the stream of messages and photographs at Twitter and elsewhere marking the fabulous achievement of SAFC Ladies in taking the Women’s Super League 2 title at the first attempt, having previously and unpardonably been excluded when […]

Another view of SAFC vs Arsenal: a defence of Buckley

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Monsieur Salut says: it is said few people witnessing the same event, be it a car crash or a football game, see it quite the same way. For the definitive assessment, go to deputy editor Malcolm Dawson’s report. I felt Jack Rodwell, Seb Larsson and Adam Johnson had reasonable games – no more than that, […]

Keir’s Player ratings: Rodwell, Johnson and PVA best of a poor bunch

Keir Bradwell

Monsieur Salut writes: Keir Bradwell‘s “after Len Shackleton” device for his ratings from Southampton – a blank page – divided opinion. This week normal business is restored. I would not quarrel with most of it, save that Larsson’s industry merited a high mark and Wickham was, in truth, no better served than Fletcher … (more…)

Sixer’s Substitute’s Soapbox: Arsenal take advantage of Black Cats’ ill luck

Jake says "It's gonna be a long hard season!"

Malcolm Dawson writes……..Peter Sixsmith is a frequent visitor to the National Stadium at Wembley. Usually it’s to watch a Rugby League game or a Northern League side in the FA Vase final. Once every twenty years or so he even gets to see Sunderland there. This season he dreams of another trip to see his […]

Pure Poyetry after Arsenal: Sunderland so difficult to beat they’ll do it for you!

Jake: 'let's hope we can still trust in Gus'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..it’s part of the manager’s job to be upbeat and seek out the positives. He couldn’t quite do that last week but is back in the groove after two of the most schoolboyish of errors cost the team a point and bit more composure should have seen the Gunners punished for their own […]
