Rate the ref: Thomas Bramall – Bristol Rovers at home

Rate The Ref featured image

Our first home league game since the series started, meaning this is our first opportunity to get the opinion of a decent sized crowd. We didn’t expect many ratings for away games but thought we would get more people taking part when the game’s at the SOL. The cup game against Walsall did nothing to […]

Sixer’s Sevens: heavy weather against Bristol Rovers

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith remains busy on the Saturdays before Christmas so it’s a substitute performance over the weekend. Our deputy editor Malcolm Dawson was there to brave rotten weather conditions and at times rotten play, it seems, happy enough that a game that didn’t go as expected still finished well enough. He sent alternative seven-word verdicts […]

John McCormick writes: I won’t be in the North East for the home game but I have my eye on the away fixture at Bristol this season. It would be another club and ground on my list, not that I’m collecting. If I was, however, it would be some years before I could approach the […]

SAFC vs Bristol Rovers prize Guess the Score: no more slips, please

Jake: 'wipe away the Walsall blues'

To listen to my Bristol Rovers-supporting or Bristol-dwelling friends and acquaintances, Sunderland vs Rovers is the mother of all home bankers. We’re up against a basket case of a club playing atrocious football and shipping goals as if for fun. What could possibly go wrong? (more…)

Sixer’s Walsall Sevens: Third time unlucky? Maybe not.

Jake

Pete Sixsmith may be busy on the Saturdays before Christmas but on the weekdays he leaves the work to his helpers and heads off to find a game. Luckily for him there are a few coming up. This one, though it might give Pete a break, is one the rest of us didn’t really want. […]

Walsall Who are You: Sunderland ‘pretty useful going forward, less convincing off the ball’

se

Monsieur Salut writes: this is a Who are You? with a difference ahead of tonight’s FA Cup 2nd round replay at home to Walsall. Richard Hall’s Q+A for the first two games – both drawn – between our clubs this season, league and cup, were mightily impressive. Our own star writer Pete Sixsmith thought they […]

There has been a bit of discussion on the calling off and whether (no pun intended) it was or wasn’t the correct decision. I’m going to take a different tack. Right or wrong,  I’m glad it was, and here’s why: First, here’s a short video taken about 2.45. You’ll notice the water lying on the […]
