Sixer’s Hull City sevens : Cliff Richard sang it in 1961 – will you be singing it tonight?

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith’s seven word text, fresh from the Stadium of Light, makes it clear that this was not just a team effort but also that our manager’s choice of young players, indeed his whole ethos, is the way to go. The fans  probably won’t be singing a Cliff Richard song as they stream out of […]

Sixer’s Sevens. Cardiff leave us singing the Blues

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I didn’t think Cardiff City were anything special yet they brushed us aside. So what does that make us? Bob Chapman, standing in for Pete Sixsmith sent us his  immediate post-match text and in just seven words, gives us something of an answer. An answer we didn’t want: (more…)

Sixer’s Middlesbrough sevens: My cup run has fallen over

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: As always, we packed out the away end. As almost always,  the team conceded early. From then it was the same old story and now our cup run (such as it was) is over. Pete Sixsmith’s instant seven word text gives us the bones right now; tomorrow his report will tell us […]

John McCormick writes: with about ten minutes to go I was just about to write a headline in when Pete Sixsmith sent a seven-word text. Did it make me change what I was going to put? Not at all. You can read what Pete wrote below and I bet you agree with both him and myself. […]

Sixer’s sevens: Nottingham Forest and another clean sheet

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith, back on duty, must have spent a good five minutes applauding. I can’t think of any other reason why his seven word summary took so long to arrive. It’s worth waiting for, however, as it contains a message of hope: (more…)

Sixer’s Seven: Sheffield United clinically dissect Black Cats on Boxing Day

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith, Santa duties over, was at Bramall Lane this afternoon, where no doubt he hoped to enjoy some festive cheer with M Salut, who was seeking to maintain his talismanic streak and see another Sunderland win today. Gary Bennett wasn’t impressed at half time as the Lads went in 1-0 down. How was Pete […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 1-1 Birmingham City. Not the result SAFC needed

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson was back in the East stand seat of Pete Sixsmith, absent again on Santa duties, to see Sunderland drop back into the bottom three after a disappointing draw against the bottom club, with Bolton and Burton both winning. The instant verdict is therefore his, as will be the substitute Sixer’s Soapbox in due […]

Sixer’s sevens: Out of the bottom three as the long wait ends

Jake

Malcolm Dawson is occupying Pete’s seat and I believe he’ll be doing the match report tomorrow, as befits someone in such an elevated position. Malcolm sent his seven word summary to M Salut at the  final whistle. M Salut, somewhere else  in the ground – and possibly in a better seat – forwarded it to me (John […]

Sixer’s Sevens. Wolves 0-0 SAFC. Point made – and a good one

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith Monsieur Salut writes: Bob Chapman, standing in for Pete Sixsmith (absent on Santa duties), has the sort of home-and-away record of attendance at SAFC games that cries out for a gong in the New Year’s honours list. Today, he saw a valiant backs-to-the-wall display by Sunderland that won an unlikely point at the […]

Pete Sixsmith  has been given leave of absence in order to carry out his duties with the fair elves of County Durham and the pixies of Jesmond. In his stead we have a little helper – at least littler than he was at the start of the season. Malcolm Dawson, for it is he,  will […]
