Rob Hutchison

Rob Hutchison – or should we say Olivia’s dad? – went Monsieur Salut’s route and found an internet stream. These are his one-word verdicts on the team, plus this succinct summary: ‘thank goodness that’s over’ … he somehow missed out Manquillo and Khazri so I have volunteered entries … Pickford 7 faultless Love 4 loveless […]

Sixer’s Bournemouth Soapbox: going down with barely a whimper

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……the official attendance yesterday was 38,394 but judging by the number of empty seats all round the ground I would estimate that about 8,000 season ticket holders didn’t bother to turn up. Pete Sixsmith did and he wasn’t surprised by what he saw on the pitch, nor were the majority of supporters who […]

Moyes on the boys v Bournemouth: “…nobody is going to talk about the performance*”

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: To read the above in our manager’s post-match missive* you might think we went down 5-6 to Bayern Munich or Real Madrid after storming their barricades for 90 minutes. The truth is somewhat different as we once again failed to score or keep a clean sheet against mediocre opposition. At least he […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0-1 Bournemouth. Dead and buried. That’s official

Jake: 'after a lengthy flirtation and courtship, the relationship is finally consummated.'

Pete Sixsmith today witnessed his ninth relegation. He and Monsieur Salut were both around for the one before that, Sunderland’s first, but just too young to have formed their lifelong allegiance, one that – promotions and an FA Cup win apart – has been a largely unrequited love. Come back for more – Sixer’s immediate […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….criticised for his negative comments after his side’s defeat in what was considered this season’s first local derby, David Moyes is full of optimism and praise for his team after the second. Well there are people who believe in the Yeti and Bigfoot and that the moon landings were all an elaborate hoax, […]

Bournemouth Who are You?: ‘how have Sunderland lasted so long?’

NB: this appears slightly out of sequence ahead of Pete Sixsmith’s report from the Riverside, where the poor man witnessed yet another winless, goalless night for Sunderland. In the Latchem family, brotherly love means supporting AFC Bournemouth, a tiny club compared with our own but – passion and size of fan base apart – much […]

While M Salut was tied up entertaining long distance relatives, John McCormick was fighting his own relegation battle in the Merseyside Chess League or whatever and I was occupied in my post retirement part time career opportunity in Lytham St Annes, Pete […]
