WordPress seems happier with Win7 than Win10, and a change of computer has let me add more content and repost the report I did a few hours ago: It was January 2017 when I last reported on this side of the Pennines, which is not surprising, given the season(s) – and close seasons – we’ve […]

As Coleman starts the revival, remember Big Sam’s brief but effective Sunderland reign

Jake, le penseur

Sunderland opponents and their grounds: Sixer’s series as good as it gets

Jake's generic Salut gif

    Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back.

Sunderland but also in unpaid appearances […]
