Sixer’s Liverpool Soapbox: surprised, nay shocked, nay absolutely gobsmacked

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes: New Year’s Eve and the aftermath was spent down in the Midlands, with my mate the Leicester City fan who is convinced that he will be off to Cardiff to see the Foxes in the final of the Champions League, despite my reminding him that I have seen Leicester City play more […]

Moyes on the Boyes: ‘we really deserved that point against Liverpool’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: an excellent point, might have been three. My own man of the match was Vito Mannone but no one played badly. Now over to the manager, David Moyes, for his customary post-match email …. (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2-2 Liverpool. Maybe deserved to win

Monsieur Salut writes: what a transformation! Here was a performance unrecognisable from the dross seen at Turf Moor. Most of us would have taken a point before the game; against title contenders, we might easily have won had Anthony Taylor, who had curiously patchy curate’s egg of a game (ie good in parts), given us […]

In case you missed the Liverpool vs Sunderland ‘Who are You?’

Jake: roaring the Lads on to victory

HAPPY NEW YEAR It is not often that a Who are You? interview is re-posted. On this occasion, 24 hours (23 actually) ahead of our home game against Liverpool, it seems a natural thing to do. Why? Well, it’s a good interview but that alone wouldn’t be enough. Nor would the fact that not all […]

Weighing up our chances at Burnley and at home to Liverpool

Plenty of this from the Roker End last night.

Just a quick update ahead of our two games over the New Year period, away to Burnley tomorrow and at home to Liverpool 48 hours later. It seemed sensible to bring together Guess the Score into one joint competition, though structured to allow for single entries too. (more…)

Liverpool Who are You? ´Mood of great excitement in half the city’

Click the banner to find all the Who are You? interviews this season

Do you remember Evertonian Hannah Myers*, who came second in our “Who are you?” annual awards (beaten only by former manager Denis Smith) a couple of seasons ago? Now it’s her brother’s turn to grace our website, but he happens to be of the red persuasion. So you might detect a little sibling rivalry as Tom Easby gives us the […]

Burnley and Liverpool Guess the Scores. Prizes at the treble

Click on Jake's banner and you go to the Guess the Score posting for this game. Have a go ...

Liverpool’s ultimately easy 4-1 win against Stoke City confirms what we already knew – that Monday’s game against Jurgen Klopp’s side will be tough. Even if Simon Mignolet keeps his place and makes more errors than usual, they have bags of goals in them. That makes Saturday’s game all the more important. The good work of […]

Sunderland’s star striker: ‘a player I always hoped Liverpool would sign’

Gizza job, Jermain. I'd be a great PA

Is there a team in the land in which Jermain Defoe would not score goals? Probably not. Is our extraordinary little striker just not fashionable – or young – enough a footballer to appeal to the Peps, Joses and Antonios and the brands they manage? Maybe. We’re just lucky we have him. And Monsieur Salut’s […]

Sunderland vs Leicester City Guess the Score. Beatable champions

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

See these (above) and other Art of Football prints by clicking anywhere on this caption Two good wins followed by a logical defeat at Anfield after we’d held out well for 75 minutes and even had two good chances to go ahead. The positive way to look at our last three games is not to […]

Sixer’s sub’s soapbox: Liverpool just too good

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

I think the last match I got to was the same fixture in February, when we came back from 2-0 down to get a draw, thanks to Jermain Defoe and the now disgraced Adam Johnson. Johnson had come on as sub for Jan Kirchoff, another of the eight who were on the team sheet in […]
