Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Jake: catch Sixer’s instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season at http://salutsunderland.com/category/sixers-sevens/sixers-sevens-2015-2016/

John McCormick writes: Early on in the game some stats came up. Bournemouth have scored the most early goals in the Premiership and we have conceded the most.  It came as no surprise when Bournemouth scored a couple of minutes later. We got back into it when Patrick came to our rescue and we even managed a bit of attacking before the end. Did we deserve to win? I don’t think so, but you might think Pete Sixsmith disagrees, from his instant verdict in seven words, no more no less, straight at the final whistle

    We’re going to need to start drawing games instead of collapsing . Of course I would have preferred a win and we where pleading with them to shoot in stoppage time ,when we had all of the possession outside of their box and did nothing with it . We need to take this solid performance into our next difficult run of games and hopefully nick something .

      Drummer, we need to start winning some too. Especially games like this. As it turned out, a win would have been massive, given other results. To have any chance of PL survival, we are going to have to win against the odds – like Swansea today. Games are running out.
      However, I agree that at the very least we must not lose.
