Fulham v SAFC – The Chapman Report: no disaster in Titanic fixture

Jake says: Phew - We're through!

Malcolm Dawson writes…..For this and the next few weeks a few lucky adolescents on North Teeside are the beneficiaries of Peter Sixsmith‘s years of experience of teaching History in his idiosyncratic style. “Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you? Did she die in vain?” (Click here to put into context!) And here for the whole […]

Chapman Report from Liverpool: fish, chips and nearly wrapping up the points

Jake: 'phew! ..But the Lads did well'

While Peter Sixsmith was ho-ho-hoing through parts of County Durham, Robert Chapman was stoically on an awayday to Anfield. Here, delayed a little by internet problems, is his report … My first visit to Anfield was the last day of season 1980/1. A goal from Stan Cummins ensured a 1-0 win which kept us in […]

The Chapman Report from Fulham: ‘most important hat-trick of my lifetime?”

not giving up

Once again, the ever-present Robert Chapman, snapped up in a Salut! Sunderland editorial swoop on the White Horse in Parsons Green, steps up to cover for Peter Sixsmith, who missed out on the bargain train fares and gave Fulham away a miss. He did see Shildon beat Consett 2-0 and doubtless was kept in touch […]

Jake adds a hero

Once again, Robert Chapman steps smartly into Sixer’s outsized boots to cover for the great man’s latest act of truancy, preferring a squashed ball international to a somewhat lower scoring game of real football at Villa Park … (more…)

The Chapman Report from Swansea: relegation a no-brainer for this shower

not giving up

When Pete Sixsmith misses a game, or at any rate a Sunderland game (he was at Shildon versus Durham suffering news from Swansea by text and Benno/Barnes on BBC Radio Newcastle), the stand-in is often Bob Chapman. Needless to say the poor chap, a home-and-away regular probably since time began, found this one an agonising […]

The Chapman Report from Aston Villa: sheer agony on a night to forget

Jake's view of the subs' bench

It is tempting to draw a veil over the whole sorry night. As Jimmy Montgomery put it, in 40th anniversary-themed conversation with Monsieur Salut, what was remarkable was that so many players chose to have such catastrophically poor games. And Bob Chapman was left to ponder – even more painfully than most of us – […]

The Chapman Report from Chelsea: must do (even) better

Jake's view of the subs' bench

Jamie Redknapp’s bits-and-bobs column in the Mail made depressing reading. ‘Will they (Newcastle) send Sunderland closer to the drop next week? … At Chelsea, PDC went for Wickham to lead the line – a young player I like – and he played well. But I worry where their goals are coming from.’ But there is […]

The Chapman Report from QPR: watching SAFC needs a government health warning

Jake as Tony Roffe's caption writer

Bob Chapman once again fills Sixer’s outsized shoes to report on a game the master chose to miss. It started as a day when Bob and a friend would impress two young Aussie women with a scintillating show by Sunderland preceded by the delights of a west London gastro-pub. Something went wrong; they endured takeaway […]

The Chapman Report from Swansea: can SAFC finish above Newcastle?

Not often, Pete Sixsmith misses a game. Either some non-league or oval-ball (RL only) nonsense has taken his fancy or up with certain, usually London prices he will not put. Where Swansea away fitted into this is unclear, but luckily our old friend and very occasional contributor Bob Chapman, who is – like Pete – […]
