Jake gives Sixer star billing

Jake gives Sixer star billing

Pete Sixsmith said at half time that Sunderland were giving Chelsea a tough old game and he was right. And when he cried for more, he got it. This was a superb point and could have been three with a spot more luck, from a game in which SAFC were never truly second best. Sixer offers two seven-word verdicts; his fuller assessment should be a rousing read …

Jake: 'no cross words tonight, Lads'

Jake: ‘no cross words tonight, Lads’

Nov 29 SAFC (0) 0 Chelsea (0) 0*A performance to make Sunderland supporters proud or Could and maybe should have won it

Nov 22 Leicester City (0) 0 SAFC (0) 0 Two points lost rather than one gained

Nov 9 SAFC (0) 1 Everton (0) 1 A good point against a good side

Nov 3 Crystal Palace (0) 1 SAFC (1) 3 *Sometimes a win is all that matters

Oct 25 SAFC (0) 0 Arsenal (1) 2 *Farcical errors lead to further foot shooting

Oct 18 Southampton (3) 8 SAFC (0) 0 Total humiliation today. Players should be ashamed

Oct 4 SAFC (2) 3 Stoke City (1) 1 Duck broken but still some hairy moments

Sept 27 SAFC (0) 0 Swansea City (0) 0 Better performance but cannot finish teams off

Sept 23 Capital One Cup 3rd Round: SAFC (1) 1 Stoke City (1) 2 No Wembley date this March. Wasted evening

Sept 20 Burnley 0 (0) SAFC 0 (0) A thoroughly disappointing performance. Early optimism evaporating

Sept 13 SAFC (1) 2 Tottenham Hotspur (1) 2 Not quite sure how we managed that>

    Thoroughly deserved point and nice to see Catts play really well on telly. Maybe Roy Hodgson was actually watching us!
    I wouldn’t like to single anyone out. Fantastic effort from everyone, but the defence were great. Reveillere could turn out to be the key signing of the season

    And he’s playing out of position! Cattermole and Larsson outstanding in a great team performance.

    10s all round Kier!

      No weak links today. Except the ref perhaps.

  4. Jeremy November 29, 2014 at 10:08 pm #

    Fantastic result. Surprised most of us!

    What a disingenuous person Mourinho is. What was to stop him saying that for once he came up against a team willing to work hard for the full 90 minutes and show the rest of the Premier League that Chelsea are not the ‘wonder team’ the pundits would have us believe!
    Great manager? Sure. A little bit of respect would not go amiss though.

    He’s really no more than a little horse Mike.

    There’s a lot to admire in his achievements but little to respect in his actions and remarks.
