Jake pins Sixer to the wall

Jake pins Sixer to the wall

Another game without a goal for Sunderland but a draw seemed likely for Dick Advocaat in his first game in charge until legs became weary, minds wandered and Sakho buried the ball with minutes to go. It had been a decent performance up to then. Defoe had wasted a wonderful chance much earlier, the team had battled well. No Sixer’s Seven tonight – what you see is the excellent Bob Chapman’s emergency offering – but the team showed the sort of spirit, albeit in slightly undeserved defeat, that might get Pete Sixsmith back on the road for one or two of the remaining away games …

      Shouldn’t you be on a Smogbreather site attempting to explain your side’s woeful display?

      • smoggie March 21, 2015 at 9:50 pm #

        • Drummer March 22, 2015 at 12:27 am #

            Aw was the nasty man rude to you ? And I never said you were all fairweather fans

      • Eric012 March 22, 2015 at 2:18 pm #

        Surely, somewhere in The Land Of Smog, there must be someone who has learned to write a little bit, and has been able to set up a website (probably with the help of an educated Mackem). If this is so, then please Smogster, naff off and annoy some one else.

    After what has been served up in 2015 there were many positives in this performance, we looked organised, determind and motivated. We had a plan and worked together to execute it. We controlled much of the game and but for missed GBH on Seb we would have received something. ONWARD AND UPWARD TOGETHER

  3. Jeremy March 23, 2015 at 2:02 am #

    Well said Keith. The worry is that it should have happened a month ago.
