Sixer’s Sentiments: pots, kettles, lies, damned lies and statistics

Jake keeps the post revolution Red Flag flying

With Year 8 otherwise occupied finishing off their selection boxes whilst playing on their i-pads, Pete Sixsmith has time to study the financial pages of The Guardian. Then, when he’s finished that he can study the latest in football statistics published in the sports section. It’s amazing what a couple of wins can do. Like […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sunderland 1 Man City 0 extra gifts on Boxing Day

Jake suspects that a challenge looms

Malcolm Dawson writes….The result at Southampton brought us some Christmas cheer but if truth be told I wasn’t full of optimism (when am I you may well ask) as I took my seat before the Boxing Day game. After all we were facing a quality team whilst our boys had been misfiring all season long, […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sunderland’s visit to Man United was a real fairytale – grim!

Malcolm Dawson writes It’s the pantomime season and Sunderland’s defenders had obviously rehearsed long and hard as they totally ignored the cries of “he’s behind you” that echoed around Old Trafford throughout the afternoon. It was difficult to decide whether it was Bramble, Cuellar or O’Shea who was playing the back end of the pantomime […]

Martins Musings from Manchester United 3 SAFC 1: taking heart in defeat

Malcolm Dawson writes…with M. Salut at the pantomime (no not Old Trafford) he has forwarded MON’s post match personal e-mail to me. More of the same I’m afraid, just like the performance!
