Back in November, the Sunderland Echo‘s thoughtful columnist Tony Gillan posed the interesting question: “Are Jan Kirchhoff’s legs so wonky that he couldn’t be offered a rolling contract? (more…)

The Devil’s Advocate: from Rochdale to Everton, from Kone to keepers

Devil's Advocate(featured image)

John McCormick asks: what do you think of the reformatted former Johnstone’s Paint trophy? Did we really need to fork out for a two year contract for a third keeper? Will Victor Anichebe prove to be better than Danny Graham? My answers are “undecided”, “no”, “yes but that means nothing”. Rob Hutchison has his own opinions. Here […]

Sixer’s Checkatrade Soapbox: the Trojan horse galloping into Rochdale

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……it takes a lot to shock me these days but the revelation that there was a Football League ground that Pete Sixsmith had never been to almost made me choke on my Vimto. But normal service was soon resumed when I re-read his report of last night’s Checkatrade Trophy at Spotland and realised it […]

Jan Kirchhoff: an interview missing the one thing we want to hear

Jake on Jan

It reminds us of what we know about the official club site, good and bad. Safc.com talks to Jan Kirchhoff, a revelation in almost every game after the unfortunate debut at Spurs and the player most of us want to hear is committed to Sunderland. It’s all very interesting and site’s privileged access to players […]

Our best defenders: part 2, in praise of John O’Shea

Midfielders' wins, draws and losses

We started our season at Leicester with a line up that included Seb Coates and Costel Pantsilimon. Substitutes included Adam Matthews, who came on for Billy Jones. By the time we got to the final game Seb Coates, Costel Pantsilimon and Adam Matthews were no longer at the club. Billy Jones, subbed 12 games previously and subsequently dropped, came […]

Our best defenders: Part 1, individual comparisons

Midfielders' wins, draws and losses

When I did my analysis of our midfield I said it would probably be one of two posts but there was so much to collect and compare that I decided to split the second part into two. To begin, I’m using stats from  hosted stats.com, Squawka.com and my own sums to look at individual performances. Who do you think is better […]

Sixer’s Everton Soapbox: banishing the blues on Wearside (part 2)

Malcolm Dawson writes………if Saturday was immense then Wednesday night was immenser! The first part of the job was completed at the weekend with victory over the Blues of Chelsea. The crowd was there to see the team complete the job against the Blues of Everton and my word were they up for it? What an […]

Jan Kirchhoff: from short-lived villain to cultured hero – and now recognised

Jake on Jan

Congratulations Jan Kirchhoff on your player of the month award At Salut! Sunderland and ESPN, as elsewhere, Jan Kirchhoff came in for some stick after that wretched debut at Spurs. Mitigating circumstances have subsequently emerged and Sam Allardyce has admitted his German signing was not match-fit and should not have been sent on as a […]

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 […]

Sixer’s Man Utd Soapbox: new boys show their class

Malcolm Dawson writes……….before the game they were showing highlights of the 6-0 win over West Ham in 1977 on the big screen. The two lads who sit next to me, both under 20, commented that they weren’t even born when that game was played. Cue a history lesson as I told them how after a […]
