Jake: 'thanks to all who participate'. Click this image to see all of this season's interviews

It has become a bit of a stuck old gramophone record, Salut! Sunderland‘s pride in a tremendous season of Who are You? interviews with opposing supporters. Judging is at an advanced stage for our HAWAYs – annual awards for Highly Articulate Who are You?s – and with only a couple of sets of votes still […]

Sixer’s sub’s Fleetwood Soapbox: Sunderland’s season encapsulated in 95 minutes

Soapbox black

Malcolm Dawson writes………none of us really wanted to go through the playoffs, even those who would have settled for that scenario before the season kicked off, but for Pete Sixsmith they represent an increased workload. With 46 league games to report on, plus all those cup ties and his twin series of First Time Evers, […]

Sixer’s Fleetwood Sevens: Sunderland had to win, managed to lose

Jake

Pete Sixsmith made the short trip across the Pennines, writes John McCormick, with cuddly Joey Barton urging his Fleetwood men to send us home in tears. For the miracle to happen, Sunderland needed a hatful of goals, let alone what had to befall our promotion rivals. Lee Cattermole scored to give us a halftime lead […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Fleetwood Town and Highbury

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith reaches the  penultimate stage of his journey round League One with a warning that this will be another tough game. Personally, I expect us to win it, but with a weakened team: McGeady and  Oviedo won’t play, being injured, nor will Catts, Wyke or Grigg to keep  them safe. But […]

Fleetwood Town Who are You? Going to the Stadium of Light ‘wasn’t like going to Clitheroe’

Fleetwood A

Monsieur Salut writes: John McKenna*, our interviewee for the penultimate league game of the season (and if only it could be our season’s penultimate game of any kind), comes to us via Pete Sixsmith and the interest they share in groundhopping. John proves to be a master of restraint and balance when asked about a […]

Fleetwood Town vs Sunderland. Down to playing for pride

Click Jake's image to enter

It’s over bar the playoffs. Another failure to win ends any real prospect of an automatic promotion place. Drawing at home to Portsmouth didn’t cause this huge disappointment. We had already shot ourselves in one foot, losing that crazy 5-4 game at home to Coventry, and then in the other one after going ahead late […]

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

This will be my last visit to our “ones to watch* series before the end of the season. You’ll have to judge for yourself whether or not our readership, ably assisted by the Coventry Ninjas**, got it right at the beginning. For my part, with three of the five – Portsmouth, Charlton and Barnsley – […]

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 […]
