Sixer’s Burton Albion Soapbox: back in the box seat despite the disappointing result

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…..with a little more luck we could have had all three points but in truth we were fortunate to come away with a draw. If that sounds more than a little contradictory there’s more to come. We hit the woodwork twice, had a goal disallowed (correctly in my view), theirs came about after […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Burton Albion sparkle while Sunderland are flat

Jake

Even though today’s draw does move us into second, is the result good enough? There will be naysayers but, let’s not forget, this was not our strongest side and it was our fourth game in how many days? Surely we’d have taken this  position a month ago, wouldn’t we? Pete Sixsmith’s report will be here […]

Sunderland vs Burton Albion Guess the Score: a night to go second?

Guess the score

Towards the end of last season, not quite a year ago so not at the very end, Burton Albion visited the Stadium of Light, won 2-1 and sent Sunderland down for the second successive season. The fact that most of us were already resigned to relegation made it little easier to stomach and the Netflix […]

Barnsley lurk behind Peterborough, Portsmouth and Sunderland, while Charlton and Coventry stutter.

With a break this weekend it’s time to revisit our “Ones to watch”. If you’ve been following this series you’ll remember that we’re tracking six clubs over the course of the season. The six were chosen by a people’s vote, that new tool of democracy,  with the club which came top of the poll – Coventry City – […]

Sixer’s Burton Soapbox: a bitter defeat at the home of The Brewers

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I spent the weekend catching up some of my old muckers from the East Midlands, two of whom have season tickets at the Pirelli and got me a ticket for this match in the home stand. It is a strange experience sitting with the home fans but I suspected I wasn’t the only […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland ailing at Burton Albion

Jake

Pete Sixsmith was looking forward to the weekend, not just because of the prospect of a decent game but also because of the prospect of a visit to one or two well-liked pubs. I’m not sure if those pubs were all pre-match or if he was expecting to take one in afterwards. And I’m not […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Burton Albion and the Pirelli Stadium

John McCormick writes: I wondered how Pete Sixsmith would approach this one, given that it’s less than a year since we were at Burton. Not much could have changed in under a year, surely. Well, maybe, maybe not. We have new owners, a new manager and a host of new players while Burton just have […]

The Burton Albion Who are You?: ‘don’t expect a doddle, Sunderland’

Jake back in action, willing the Lads on from Spain

Monsieur Salut writes: Dave Child*, an expert on football stadium pies as well as doing his bit for local radio, is a fine ambassador for his club, Burton Albion, the town itself and its celebrated beer. Last season, he rose twice to the ‘Who are You?’ occasion, attending both games (we won there; they sent […]
