Malcolm Dawson writes……. Pete Sixsmith is usually very busy at this time of year, and although he was at the Stadium of Light last night is otherwise engaged this morning, so once again he has asked me to climb on the soapbox for the Salut! Sunderland take on our FA Cup defeat. Make no mistake. […]

Sixer’s Sunderland U23s Soapbox: Ginger Messi on the comeback trail

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

There was an important game involving a North East team last night and Pete Sixsmith was there. Much as he likes the Lancashire town of Burnley however, he did not go across the Pennines in the hope of seeing a home side victory. He has his priorities and of much more significance and of greater […]

Sixer Says: Duncan Watmore’s injury a cruel setback for a top bloke

Welcome back Roadrunner

Monsieur Salut, locked into a West End cinema after the Oxford Circus ‘incident’, writes: at my great age, the threat posed by leaden legs and dodgy knees to continued enjoyment of badminton may be disappointing but is neither surprising nor tragic. For Duncan Watmore, just back from one eight-month layoff with a rupture to the […]

Sixer Says: McNair stars, Talbot assured as Sunderland overcome Hertha Berlin

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Pete Sixsmith is beginning to see some Sunderland wins. Sadly, they are not so far in the Championship. Maybe that will change on Saturday when proper football returns after the tedious international break. The Under 23s overcame a strong challenge from Hertha Berlin and a returning Paddy McNair caught Sixer’s eye, as did Duncan Watmore […]

Sixer Says: two cheers for Watmore as Under 23s lose to West Ham

WESTHAMhomeFT

  Monsieur Salut writes: in fact there were many more cheers for a decent 70-minute outing for Duncan. The crowd watching the Sunderland Under 23s against West Ham appreciated his running, his passion and the mere fact that he’s back. If Pete Sixsmith offers two cheers not three, it is because he also noticed a […]

Moyes on the Boys v Leicester: we beat the Champions but let’s not get carried away

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick  writes…..  I was at our previous  game, which we lost. We did, however, have the semblance of a team and it was our first loss in three games, against a full-on Liverpool team. So full on, in fact, that I endured loads of stick on Monday from deluded scousers who, having listened to Klopp, thought we did […]

Duncan Watmore’s challenge: score a (winning) goal like this against Hull City

A bit ring rusty - unsurprisingly

With thanks to the YouTube pages of ExplosiveLemonz All season, many of us have watched in admiration some of Duncan Watmore’s approach play, his tenacity and his sheer enthusiasm only to be disappointed, as he clearly is, by the lack of end product. That wasted final ball, the missed opportunity to shoot, the tendency to […]

Sixer’s West Ham Soapbox: late pressing by Irons brings another defeat

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……….Pete Sixsmith is used to getting up early, what with next door but one’s dog to walk and the papers to deliver to the great and good of Shildon, so catching the coach to West Ham was no hardship. Watching the match might have been but for 94 minutes it looked like he could have been […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Moyes stews as Sunderland get burned by Middlesbrough

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I nearly didn’t go today. I’ve got a bad back. But my lift arrived early so I struggled into my socks and shoes and did what Lamine Kone didn’t do and trekked along to the Stadium of Light. I’ve moved a row back this season but the faces from last year were all […]
