This has now been republished at http://salutsunderland.com/2018/07/who-sixer-met-in-cornwall-likeable-newcastle-fans-cardiff-minus-lee-camp/ and it is there that you should post any comment … Pete Sixsmith missed a Sunderland game. Not an important one, and he does have more than one valid reason. So he compares very favourably to some of SAFC’s players, and I bet they haven’t taken in as […]

Sixer’s Travels: dreaming of those twin towers (whoops the arch) again

Sixer by Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes……….not one to suffer the plight of the England Men’s Footballing XI in meaningless friendlies our regular correspondent Peter Sixsmith takes the opportunity to take in some non league football. This weekend he indulged his love of footy and that of rail travel by making the short trip to the Yorkshire coast to […]

Sixer Says: solve my dilemma – SAFC v QPR or Shildon at Guiseley

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

A DILEMMA AFTER SHILDON WIN AT BANBURY….. What a pleasure to read John McCormick’s eloquent account of his day out at Deepdale and a refreshing change to have some positivity about Sunderland. With any luck, that can continue after the international break, always assuming that Queens Park Rangers are willing sacrificial victims at the Stadium […]

Sixer’s Travels: Scarborough fair as they squeeze past Workington

Sixer and Sobs

John McCormick writes – was England v Malta worth watching? I sat through it but I wasn’t impressed. I just can’t get enthused about the national team. I don’t think Pete Sixsmith thinks a lot of the England team either, but he does enjoy international weekends for the opportunity they provide to visit different clubs […]

Sixer’s Travels: as a postponed trip to Middlesbrough mercifully spares one fate …

Click on Pete's image to see his brilliant report on the match

But it was still a weekend of pleasure rather than the usual Sunderland-induced pain, according to Pete Sixsmith. He saw some decent non-league football, albeit watching Shildon lose, and some rugby league. He’s already worried about Saturday but put aside such cares to compose another piece of classy writing combining sport, social observation, politics and […]

Sixer’s Travels: the silver linings that F.A. Cup defeats bring

sixsmith writes(sky)-1

Malcolm Dawson writes……the hiatus that defeat in the F.A. Cup brings may see many a Sunderland supporter washing the car, trooping around IKEA or spending the afternoon down the boozer watching a succession of matches with Serbian commentary, via the pub’s dodgy box. But not the intrepid Peter Sixsmith whose need for live sport takes […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Patrick’s impending departure leaves me quite unmoved. It’s just on a year since I saw him score the opener at Spurs, after which he disappeared as they swept past us. And that seems to epitomise his play since. What does move me is not only how will we replace him but how will David […]
