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 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 […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Kimpioka spares the blushes to maintain a superb pre-season (for him)

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

The 2018-19 edition of Sixer’s Sevens, in which Pete Sixsmith or a super-sub sums up each Sunderland game in seven words, gets properly under way today. Yes, he had a first pre-season friendly the other night, when Darlington beat us 1-0. But Pete may have been keeping one eye on news from St Petersburg, when […]
