Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland (0) 1 Arsenal (1) 4 Couldn’t be Arsened to defend

Jake

John McCormick writes: Earlier today I e-mailed Pete Sixsmith asking if he could get me a ticket for the Liverpool game. A little later came the first of three texts: ” Defending was a total and utter embarrassment”. You can see the second below in the latest of Sixer’s Sevens. And the third? Well Pete’s working […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Southampton 1-0 Sunderland. Slightly better, still not good enough

Jake: 'would winning the last four games just make us angrier?'

Monsieur Salut writes: I rely tonight on Benno and Barnes who acclaimed Sofiane Boufal’s wonder goal that beat us, praised Djilobodji for perhaps his best game since signing, considered Ndong ‘awful’ and agreed our first touch and passing were generally poor. No Pete Sixsmith this time so it is a substitute Seven …   (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: West Ham 1-0 Sunderland. When are offside players interfering?

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: I had another good stream, poor Pete Sixsmith was there as usual. We came back from an abysmal start, had the best chance of the game Khazri) and then lost in the dying seconds. Reid’s shot was from a long way out but two West Ham players were standing in offside positions […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Stoke City 2-0 SAFC. Or Sixer’s Three: ‘down by Christmas’

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: I had a good stream and watched a poor Stoke side made to look efficient by as inept a display as I can recall (well at least since the last inept display). Pete Sixsmith had a tougher day, up early to travel to the Potteries and see yet another abysmal performance which, […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1 West Brom 1. Van Aanholt to the rescue

Jake: 'underwhelmed, but a point'

The first-half disappointments – Defoe’s missed sitter, sloppy play leading to WBA’s well-taken goal – had Pete Sixsmith gloomily tweeting a seven-word verdict he thought might survive to end: ‘Lacking in quality all over the field.’ It was difficult to quarrel with that. Patrick Van Aanholt deserves immense credit for almost everything he did after […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2-3 Crystal Palace. Incompetence beyond belief

Jake: 'we're pretty useless'

When Jermain Defoe put us ahead, we were surprised given the run of play. When some decent second half pressure led to his second, superbly finished goal, we saw the heaven that is four post storm six games. After the utterly wretched defending that turned the 2-0 lead into a 3-2 defeat, you can expect […]

Sixer’s Sevens: QPR 1-2 Sunderland. McNair the killer striker

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

A win’s a win, as Pete Sixsmith might put it. A 2-1 victory away to QPR has a competent ring to it, but Sixer wasn’t there and Monsieur Salut was unable to follow it except on his mobile, being on a gruelling French naval press trip and, as the match was played, eating and drinking […]

Sixer’s Everton Sevens: Torn apart by Lukaku

Jake

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half time: “Competed well against a strong Everton team”, which I thought was a pretty fair description of the game up to then. His second text was also a pretty fair description. You’ll find it below, where it conveys a message that doesn’t bode well for Spurs: (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Southampton 1-1 Sunderland. Late heartbreak again

Jake: 'it's a start'

A point at Southampton is always a good return. But for the third time in four seasons – the odd one out leaving us a little humiliated – Sunderland lost out on an important win because they could not defend a lead. SAFC were the better side in the first half, recovered from a second […]
