Sixer’s Substitute’s Soapbox: Fleetwood grab a point at Stadium of Light

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……….rather like Chris Maguire and Josh Maja, Pete Sixsmith has had a lot of football this week, yesterday being his third Sunderland match of some sort with games at Shildon and Billingham Town sandwiched between. To give his aging fingers a rest from his constantly clattering keyboard (there was also a rather fine […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Fleetwood Town make their point

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

This going behind early’s getting to be a bit of an issue but at least we can come back from it this season, which is just as well. The bigger question is – will we do better as our injuries abate and players get fully up to speed?  We’re still unbeaten and in the top […]

John McCormick writes: I don’t know what Pete Sixsmith’s on about in his opening paragraph. I can’t disagree with his comment about the average Rugby League prop forward but saying Maths sums are hard is a bit much, and surely he knows that some metals are soft. Perhaps his phrase “ very hard” covers both wood […]

The Fleetwood Town Who are You? “we surprise people every year”

Click Jake's image to see all this season's Who are You? interviews so far

John McCormick writes: Ben Knapman writes a fan column for the Fleetwood Weekly News and Blackpool Gazette. He did a two hour run earlier this year to raise funds for the Bradley Lowery Foundation. If that’s not enough he produces a You tube blog about Fleetwood Town. And he does it all on top of his […]

The SAFC vs Fleetwood Town prize Guess the Score: can we spoil Joey’s day?

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Monsieur Salut explains why there may or may not be a Fleetwood Town ‘Who are You?’. At least Guess the Score continues unaffected … (stop press – we now have a willing volunteer – see comment.) Looking at the sheer number of fixtures in League One, I did wonder whether we’d be able to maintain […]

Burton, Scunthorpe or Peterborough – who’ll join Sunderland, Barnsley, Charlton and Portsmouth?

UPDATE: we saw the poll had grown, improbably, to 11,000+ votes with Coventry way out in front on 26 per cent. Couldn’t blame Jimmy Hill this time but something was clearly up.  For the culprits, go to the Coventry site Sky Blues Talk    … but don’t get too cross as our lot would gladly have done the same […]

Barnsley drop, Burton and Posh replace Luton and Scunthorpe, Walsall get off the bottom in our promotion poll.

When I first put this poll up, a mere week ago, I wrote “this is predominantly a Sunderland site and we aren’t claiming results are totally unbiased… …Nevertheless, I think it’s fair to say that SAFC  fans have not been blindly optimistic.” After only a week I would not able to add a lot to this statement, […]

The bookies say Sunderland, Barnsley, Charlton, Portsmouth, Luton and Scunthorpe. What about you?

And so we have it: the fixtures are out. You’ll be getting your fill of dates, and conjecture from all over, no doubt, and enjoying the pre-season buzz of anticipation that it brings. But when you’re tucked up under the sheets, reading Charles Buchan’s “Football Monthly” with a torch and reality bites, do you think […]

‘I won a few things with them and had a little bit of success’

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

  No game, and no need – or desire – for a relegation review so soon after the last one, which means I’m taking another meander around the Northwest to bring you up to date, more or less, with some of the clubs on this side of the Pennines. I was going to title this […]
