The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Barnsley

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

  John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith takes me into new territory with this trip down memory lane. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Barnsley play, neither at home nor away. There’s no reason for that, apart from the fact that I was seven or eight the first time they came to Roker, and had been living […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Sunderland finished a dismal 2017 with an away win. Pete Sixsmith was there to see it and he finishes the year with yet another fine report. Well, not quite, because later today there’ll be another of his “first time I ever..” series.  It should appear just about when you’re returning from the pub and you’ll […]

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison did his one-words verdicts, passed them to Olivia, who forwarded them to M Salut, who put them into an email in the hope that someone would be able to get them up before tomorrow, which will be very busy. And I just happened to pick up the e-mail. Teamwork, eh. […]

Sixer’s sevens: Nottingham Forest and another clean sheet

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith, back on duty, must have spent a good five minutes applauding. I can’t think of any other reason why his seven word summary took so long to arrive. It’s worth waiting for, however, as it contains a message of hope: (more…)

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Nottingham Forest and the City Ground

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

John McCormick writes: I’ve sort of begun a tradition within this series, of adding material, especially video, that Pete Sixsmith hasn’t come up with himself, although he has provided some great photos. I was setting this one up in advance, hoping as I did so that Pete would include something I could use to keep […]

Nottingham Forest Who are You?: ‘if you drop, it’ll be good for you…’

Click Jake's image to see all Who are You? instalments so far this season

John McCormick writes: a midwinter journey to one of the proper clubs. Founded 1865, occupying the same ground during three different centuries, and they had the sense to take on the best manager we never had. And then it all went wrong. But it looks like it’s going right again as we welcome Forest season […]

Let’s not waste too many words. Chris Coleman said his players allowed themselves to be intimidated by Sheffield United. Maybe; we were second best all over the pitch and the game was already beyond us when Asoro and Maja came on. (more…)

Sheffield United Soapbox (another Sixer substitute): a shamefully feeble surrender

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith is making his return to post-Santa duties in a gradual sort of way, a Sixer’s Seven here, that smashing series on The First Time Ever I Saw Ground/Team there. I could hardly decline his invitation to step in with the Soapbox from Bramall Lane, painful as it is to write […]

Sixer’s Seven: Sheffield United clinically dissect Black Cats on Boxing Day

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith, Santa duties over, was at Bramall Lane this afternoon, where no doubt he hoped to enjoy some festive cheer with M Salut, who was seeking to maintain his talismanic streak and see another Sunderland win today. Gary Bennett wasn’t impressed at half time as the Lads went in 1-0 down. How was Pete […]
