Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland ailing at Burton Albion

Jake

Pete Sixsmith was looking forward to the weekend, not just because of the prospect of a decent game but also because of the prospect of a visit to one or two well-liked pubs. I’m not sure if those pubs were all pre-match or if he was expecting to take one in afterwards. And I’m not […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Fleetwood Town make their point

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

This going behind early’s getting to be a bit of an issue but at least we can come back from it this season, which is just as well. The bigger question is – will we do better as our injuries abate and players get fully up to speed?  We’re still unbeaten and in the top […]

Sixers Sevens: Oxford United fight us to a draw

Jake

After 16 minutes of play came a text from Pete Sixsmith: “1 down from a free kick. Second best at the moment”. Three minutes later came a second: “Power sent off for a ridiculous challenge”.  A minute or two later we got our third yellow of the game. And then my internet connection went down. […]

Sixer’s Wimbledon Sevens: Cattermole tidies up Wimbledon come-on

Jake

Listening to Barnes and Benno it sounded as if we were under the cosh a bit in the first 45 being forced into playing a long ball game by the Dons and the half time scoreline sounded fair enough. Pete Sixsmith was one of the 727 Sunderland fans officially in the crowd and his half […]

Sixer’s Gillingham Sevens: a Sunderland romp in Kent

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Monsieur Salut says: for once in my life, I hardly blinked when an opposing side, Gillingham, took an early lead. I just knew we’d bounce back and almost from the re-start, that’s what we did. In what seems to have been a splendid first-half attacking display, Sunderland proceeded to go 3-1 up, Josh Maja adding […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Scunthorpe United ironed out in the first 45

Jake

I can’t remember the last time I put in a (3)-(0) to signify the half time scoreline when setting up for Pete Sixsmith’s post-game text. From what I read on the all too infrequent comments coming up on the SAFC website that score was well deserved and the final score could have been more. But 3-0 […]

Sixer’s Sheffield Wednesday Seven: out but not disgraced

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith was not to be found in the matchday (matchnight?) programme for the League Cup game against the Owls. But he was present for a 2-0 defeat in which there was plenty to admire in Sunderland’s performance. He reckoned we played some really nice football before poor Ozturk’s awful error in the first half […]

Sixer’s Luton Town Sevens: no disgrace as Sunderland return with a point

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I read or heard something from some commentator a few days ago that their Sunderland game will be every other League One club’s cup final. From the little snippets that came my way I think that was the case today. A sell-out crowd, home and away, the home team coming back from […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 2-1 Charlton. Maja and Gooch seal a perfect start

Click on Jake's banner to take you to the Salut! Sunderland home page - and the best writing you''l find on SAFC 2-1 Charlton

After a disappointing first 45 minutes of our League One season – and let it be one season, for the right reason – goals from Josh Maja and, in the dying moments of the game, Lynden Gooch brought three massively encouraging points against Charlton Athletic. Pete Sixsmith was not alone in representing the Salut! Sunderland […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Maja and Gooch lead the charge as St Mirren hit for six

Jake

Pete Sixsmith would have enjoyed this, but was nowhere near Scotland as Jack Ross went back to his last club, St Mirren, and saw his developing Sunderland side romp home 6-0. (See the highlights here at safc.com) Pete has been tasting pasties and footie down in Cornwall and will not catch another Sunderland game until […]
