Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland manage to draw at home to Accrington Stanley

Jake

John McCormick writes: this game coincides with the start of a real ale festival at the Masonic and I thought to wander down there, have a couple of beers, maybe three, and enjoy the game and the craic.  Circumstances dictated otherwise but I did manage to watch the game.  Did I enjoy it? Let’s make an […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 1-1 Blackpool. Drawing conclusions

Jake: 'bloody hell, man'

Pete Sixsmith was there to witness the first of three successive home games that could – like it or not – define our season. The first proved a disappointment, yet another draw. And this time we had to come from behind even for that. Monsieur Salut’s headline suggests the obvious question pending our fuller analysis […]

Sixer’s Sevens from Oxford United 1-1 SAFC: another letdown

Sevens (640 pixels wide)

Pete Sixsmith was happy enough at half time with a ‘decent’ first 45 and a Jimmy Dunne header – from a corner believe it or not – giving Sunderland the advantage. For those not among our 1,800 fans present at the Kassam Stadium, Barnes and Benno made for less reassuring listening. We appeared to live […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Wimbledon make it hard for Sunderland

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half-time: ‘A distinctly underwhelming and goalless first half’, at which point I had to head out to the railway station. I suspect, from the little I picked up on my return, that the second half didn’t provide much of an improvement. But we won, and Pete’s instant post-game seven […]

Sixer’s Manchester City Seven: one step from Wembley

Jake

As Salut! Sunderland‘s tweet put it, this was game that would take us one step from Wembley if we won, but didn’t really matter if we lost since it’s a Mickey Mouse competition anyway. In the event, Pete Sixsmith and our deputy editor Malcolm Dawson were there to witness a good win. So the Checkatrade […]

Sixer’s Scunthorpe Sevens: a good point but we need to find that poacher

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

What do you make of a draw at Scunny? A point gained or two thrown away? Luton open a gap, Barnsley close one and Portsmouth falter, so it’s a bit mixed. On the whole, against a very in-form side I’m inclined to be optimistic but I wasn’t there. Pete Sixsmith, who was, will give us […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland rue lack of killer finish as Luton are gifted a penalty

Jake

SAFC made a return to the Stadium of Light, Pete Sixsmith made a return to the Stadum of Light and Mick Harford made return to Sunderland while Josh Maja didn’t, because he was sick, we’re told. I reckon a few thousand others will have been sick – as a parrot – after an inexplicable penalty which […]

Sixer’s Checkatrade Sevens: cruise to victory puts SAFC-Newcastle U21 out of way

Jake's stern view of the game

Pete Sixsmith is recovering after his recent op but felt it wiser to give a miss to SAFC vs whoever might be representing the Mags. In his place, possibly in his actual place at the SoL, Salut! Sunderland‘s Malcolm Dawson took the armband for the seven word verdict. (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Cats pick up a point at Charlton’s Valley

Jake

  Pete Sixsmith had a ticket for today’s game and a seat booked on the coach down from the North East, and should have been one of 3,136 Sunderland fans in the Jimmy Seed stand, but last night there were things which necessitated a night away from home and precluded his attendance. Back at Sixsmith […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Maja makes the difference at Blackpool

Jake

Was it 7,000, 8,000 or perhaps even more Sunderland fans who made the trip to Blackpool for the New Year’s Day fixture at Bloomfield Road? Pete Sixsmith was among them and was delighted to record Josh Maja’s 15th goal of the season. Barnes and Benno kept those of us nowhere near the Lancashire seaside in […]
