Sixer’s Peterborough sevens. Bitterly disappointing

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Is there another twist to come? With only two or three games left time is not on our side, and nor are the fixtures.  We  might yet do it, and at the very least we have the playoffs, so all is not yet lost, but… …which means this away draw, against a tough team, is […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Doncaster caught out by Sunderland

Jake

  My first thought was “don’t concede early”. And we didn’t Then I thought “get a good start”. And we did. At 70 minutes I thought “Hang on for a clean sheet”. And we did These were good points earned today, in a game we knew we had to win. Pete Sixsmith (I think) will […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Coventry break Sunderland’s record at the Stadium of Light

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Phase One was accomplished midweek, when that single point was enough to move us beyond reach of Peterborough, the only team outside the top six with a chance (and the slimmest of chances at that) to pass us. Phase two will be much more difficult as just about every team we play has something to […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Burton Albion sparkle while Sunderland are flat

Jake

Even though today’s draw does move us into second, is the result good enough? There will be naysayers but, let’s not forget, this was not our strongest side and it was our fourth game in how many days? Surely we’d have taken this  position a month ago, wouldn’t we? Pete Sixsmith’s report will be here […]

Sixer’s Sevens: a good day for Sunderland at Rochdale, Burton and Luton

John McCormick writes: do games get much closer than this? To come from 1-0 down to win 2-1 away, with a last minute goal from a captain who came on as a sub. And this on a day when Barnsley lost and Luton only managed a draw at home. And, if my maths is correct […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Accrington Stanley don’t bog us down after Portsmouth

John McCormick writes: put yourself in my place. 0-2 up away from home, with 15 minutes left. If Accrington score and we win 2-1 your “guess the score” is correct and you win a shirt. Do you want Accy to score? It took me less than a minute. “sod it” I thought “get a third” […]

Sixer’s Wembley Seven: Portsmouth perfect as Sunderland’s Wembley curse continues

Jake

I was sweating in the last few minutes of extra time, thinking “the next goal will win it”. And then Portsmouth scored, after we had lost all of the shape and brio that marked our first half performance. But somehow we scored a second  time to send the game to penalties. Which we lost. Pete […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Grigg strike eases patchy Sunderland past Walsall for three mighty points

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Back home, after a long time on the road, with a depleted squad and a serious need to keep in touch with the top two, which suddenly looked doable once again, especially after Gillingham twice equalised against Luton, Pete Sixsmith wearily texted the early Walsall goal to absent friends. Then Cattermole smashed in an equaliser […]

Sixer’s Barnsley Sevens: a good Sunderland point on a bad night.

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Is anyone complaining about SAFC not scoring? Is anyone complaining about another draw? I’m not and nor is Pete Sixsmith, who was once more on the road. We’ll have to return tomorrow to get his considered view in the full match report, but the seven-word text he sent immediately on the whistle echoes what many of […]

Sixer’s Sevens: feisty encounter but we share the spoils at Wycombe

Jake

After a long trip to Bristol on Tuesday, Pete Sixsmith was back on the road again today for another long trip to High Wycombe, to witness a less than convincing performance against a Wanderers side who seem to have perfected the art of falling down and disrupting the flow of the game. They did it […]
