Wrinkly Pete: wise men say only fools rush out

Wrinkly Pete

Amid a barrage of criticism levelled at SAFC ownership and management, Peter Lynn offers an alternative view of on and off-the-field problems that include, in his view, the spectacle of supporters leaving the Stadium of Light early … (more…)

Sixer’s Crystal Palace Soapbox: something lost or something gained?

Malcolm Dawson writes….I have this view, which I trot out from time to time, that it’s far better to see your team concede in the opening minutes, be completely outplayed for the rest of the game then equalise just before the final whistle, than be a supporter of the other side. While one set of […]

Life after Wickham, for better or worse

"It had to be" says Jake

For Monsieur Salut’s latest piece for ESPN FC, the victory in Hannover took second place to the more immediate news of Connor Wickham’s move to Crystal Palace being confirmed. I am in two minds about his departure. There is clearly a good player struggling to break out of the not-so-good one Sunderland fans have too […]

Sixer’s Leicester City Soapbox: Arsenal and Chelsea no place for chokers

Malcolm Dawson writes….we have had several “must win” games at the Stadium of Light this season and generally (Burnley and Southampton apart) have failed to come up with the goods. A win against QPR, Villa, Hull or Palace and we would have been safe weeks ago. No I haven’t forgotten the Defoe wonder goal but […]

Dick’s Stoke City Advochaat: on taking a point and talking positive

Malcolm Dawson writes: It all so much clearer now for SAFC – Shildon that is. A come from behind 3-1 win means that if they take all three points against the Terriers of Bedlington on Wednesday they win the Northern League title. Anything less and the trophy goes to Marske. Not so clear cut for […]

Sixer’s Burnley Soapbox: can’t go back to safety now

Jake lets us know the  score

Malcolm Dawson writes….Pete Sixsmith has had a busy time since Lee Mason blew the full time whistle yesterday. First thing this morning he stepped in for M Salut and did a blog for ESPN. Read it here. Then he caught Carver, the below stairs boot boy, temporarily standing in for recently departed faithful manservant Pardew, […]

Sixer’s Liverpool Soapbox: when sorrows come they come not single spies

Malcolm Dawson writes…..Sunderland have won fewer games than any other team in the Premier League. Even QPR who haven’t mustered a single point away from home have won two more games than SAFC and no prizes for guessing who their first victim was. Even Burton Albion beat them before they tasted victory against us. The […]

Sixer’s Man City Soapbox: City quality too much as Sunderland outplayed

Jake: 'not our finest hour and a half'

Malcolm Dawson writes….. Since the advent of advent, Peter Sixsmith has been distributing gifts to the not so poor and needy up and down the Durham Dales, except to those wearing anything with a “Wonga” advert, explaining just why Saint Nicholas always wears red and white. But last night he got his manservant Pardew to […]

Graham gone. Jozy going, maybe. But are Wickham & Fletch fixtures?

Catch

I have been worrying for a while about our strike force. Until this week, if we leave aside development squad players, Gus Poyet had four options up front: Steven Fletcher, Connor Wickham. Jozy Altidore and Danny Graham. Don’t laugh at the last name; he’s been on the bench. (more…)

Pure Poyetry: making the calls against Mark Hughes’ s Stoke City

Jake: 'our strikers swung their banjos with accuracy today and gave the cow's backside a reet battering!'

Malcolm Dawson writes….in the games I’ve seen this season Sunderland have been consistent and on a par with the opposition. Spurs looked the better side but didn’t dominate. Swansea were dominated but never really looked like losing. Stoke in the League Cup beat us but we could have just as easily been the winners. The […]

John McCormick, associate editor, writes: things have quietened down with our ‘who to follow’ poll, as we might expect. Portsmouth, […]
