Sixer’s Seaside Sevens: Young lads enjoy a late night in Morecambe

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith commented about the many changes to tonight’s team in his pre-match text, but there was still enough strength in the team and on the bench to maintain a winning run and manage another clean sheet. But only just? We’ll find out tomorrow. Meanwhile, here’s his final text, seven sweet words, no more, no […]

Sixer’s Port Vale Sevens: Pope misses out on a miracle

Jake

Pete Sixsmith  reckons his  match report will arrive at Salut HQ some time around midday. Before then we’ll have another in his “first time” series to set us up for Tuesday’s trip to Morecambe. And before that we have his immediate post-match seven word text, sent on its way as the whistle blew in Burslem […]

Sixer’s Plymouth Sevens: two-goal McGeady seals smooth win and second place

Jake sets the scene

Monsieur Salut writes: no Pete Sixsmith at Home Park for Sunderland’s fifth league win on the trot, Aiden McGeady claiming both goals and more crucial saves from Jon McLaughlin, plus some solid defending, keeping another clean sheet before 1,300 travelling fans. And Sunderland are now second top. Sixer’s supersub, John Marshall, provides the seven-word verdict […]

John McCormick writes: As the only member of the Salut! brigade not at the match it’s left to me to mind the store.  No doubt M Salut will provide details of his trip in due course, and Pete Sixsmith will provide his normal match report, while Malcolm’s observations might come a little later but be all the […]

Sixer’s Sevens: hanging on against Doncaster Rovers – that’ll do nicely

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Our service could be a bit delayed tomorrow. Not only has Pete Sixsmith to get home, he’ll probably have to compose himself before he can compose his report. And if he does manage to send it early he will find we’re all otherwise engaged. But we will get there in the end, which is what […]

Sixer’s Shrewsbury Sevens: 2-0 to SAFC, a comfortable win and that elusive clean sheet

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: this is where Pete Sixsmith offers his customary seven-word verdict on each Sunderland game he attends. He wasn’t impressed by a goal-free first half – ‘poor stuff’ – but found the second half much more enjoyable. It ended with the 2-0 scoreline in our favour that our excellent Shrewsbury Town Who are […]

Sixer’s Bradford Sevens: 10-man Sunderland hang on as promotion rivals lose

Jake

If we fail to win promotion at the first attempt this season, it may not be because of our inability to keep a clean sheet or hold onto a lead but through a lack of discipline. For the third time this season we had a player sent off and for the second time our keeper […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Peterborough United will be happy with that point

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith  sent a text with about 20 minutes to go: “Oviedo red card. Correct and totally unnecessary” and I began to wonder  how we could hold out against a team that scores at will when we have only one clean sheet to our name. We couldn’t, but we did manage to match them and […]

Sixer’s Coventry City Sevens: 1-1, not enough but could have been worse

Jake

Pete Sixsmith felt a draw was fair, and listening to Barnes and Benno, Monsieur Salut thought the same. Injuries – Loovens off in the first few minutes, with more to follow – certainly harmed our cause but we must somehow learn how to keep a clean sheet. Pete did not, he assures us, ride naked on […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Rochdale undone by a Majastic display

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Max Stryjek saved a penalty, Danny Graham and Steven Fletcher both scored and John O’Shea was sent off. Does it matter? Not at all. None of them were at the Stadium of Light. Pete Sixsmith was, however, and his seven word text, sent as the whistle blew, sets the scene for a report that people will […]
