Hopeless ref, ruffian Wycombe opponents maybe. But should Sunderland stop looking for excuses?

First of all, I was not there. I have no first-hand idea of whether Lee Swabey is a model referee, a man who leaves each game with head rightly held high, or a disgrace, the worst of a bad bunch allowed to officiate the third tier of English football. Or somewhere in between. There wasn’t […]

We do plenty for each other, SAFC and Salut! Sunderland, so no one will mind if we simply record the EFL League One Player/Manager of the Month awards – both going our way – by reference to the official club site. Jack Ross said the award to Aiden McGeady was a ‘no brainer’ and few […]

Sixer Says: Pete Sixsmith looks at our January transfer dealings

sixer says(stripes)

Malcolm Dawson writes……this transfer window was supposed to be different. We were supposed to get players in in good time and we did get one new player and a loanee made permanent early doors. We also lost our top scorer. There was plenty of speculation throughout the month to suggest we wouldn’t be left to […]

Josh Maja: fall-out and falling out as Bordeaux uncorks its cheeky new red

Josh on the scoresheet again., Sixer inside the programme

Monsieur Salut writes: the club’s statement on the completion of Josh Maja’s move to Bordeaux was short and uninformative. We awaited some thanks, either way. They came belatedly from Maja and we should give him the benefit of the doubt and accept them at face value as being his own sentiments, not some old dross […]

Sixer’s Soapbox substitute from Charlton: a fair draw but unfairly dry January

The master

Monsieur Salut writes: my thanks to Dave Suddick, from our Facebook group, for the shot of SAFC’s marvellous travelling support as seen from his seat with a Charlton friend. I felt for an unexpectedly absent Pete Sixsmith, recuperating after surgery but in remarkably good spirits before and after, as I joined my pal and former […]

Josh Maja cannot be blamed, but doesn’t someone in this tale owe an explanation?

Josh on the scoresheet again., Sixer inside the programme

Josh Maja seems more or less blameless in the series of events that led to today’s astonishing development. If Sunderland AFC is telling the truth, Maja told Jack Ross yesterday he wanted to stay and would today sign a generous new contract (did someone say at seven times his current salary, precisely as demanded by […]
