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

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

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

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

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.

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 […]

Sixer’s Checkatrade Seven: Singin’ in the rain at Bristol Rovers

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I thought we never looked like losing, and I like the way this club is shaping up for the end of the season. That doesn’t mean anything’s done and dusted yet, but as Pete Sixsmith’s post game seven word text makes clear, we have at least one pleasant diversion  to look forward […]

Bristol Rovers Who are you?: Part 2, the Checkatrade Trophy adventure

Click the banner to find all the Who are You? interviews this season

As promised last week, Jim Chappell makes a brief return to give us an extra helping before our second trip to Bristol in a fortnight. How do you feel about that trip? Jim has other priorities, as do we, but I somehow think we’ll be showing a little more enthusiasm than Jim can muster, which […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Plymouth Argyle stopped in their tracks

Jake

John McCormick writes: There’s a busy few days ahead, so the plan is to have a match report up tomorrow morning, though I’ve no idea who will be doing it as Colin, Pete and Malcolm are all at the game. A “Guess the score” will follow the match report some time tomorrow afternoon and then […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Bristol Rovers can’t stop momentum building

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes:  Another clean sheet, another game with more than one goal. Only Charlton’s last minute winner did anything to mar what was a good day all round. Pete Sixsmith texted at half time that to say that this game was a bit scrappy but his post-game seven worder suggests his full match report […]
