Sunderland vs Manchester United prize Guess the Score. As life ebbs away …

Jake: 'ha'way Lads, they're not unbeatable'

We awoke to the realisation that yet another defeat, yet another game without hint of a Sunderland goal except from Anichebe’s deflected shot, had indeed happened, writes Monsieur Salut. It wasn’t a bad dream. Nor were the Leicester chants directed at David Moyes: “You’re getting slapped in the morning.” And we also awoke to reports […]

Encouraging but bruising for Kirchhoff as Manchester United beat Under 23s

Well said, Jake

What better way to get over the serial disappointment of following Sunderland’s first team than to take a look at the young ‘uns bursting with ambition and talent? That was Pete Sixsmith‘s theory. At least he saw Jan Kirchhoff’s return from injury (not that Man Utd seemed to care too much whether they inflicted another […]

FA Cup Third Round: five good, five bad. Everton, Notts County make both lists

Bobby Kerr and the FA Cup, May 5 1973

… in which Pete Sixsmith looks back on the good, bad and exceedingly ugly FA Cup 3rd Round ties he remembers with affection or disgust … Excitement levels among Sunderland supporters, it has to be said, have not been high over the impending FA Cup tie with Burnley. I have my ticket due to the […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: ‘there’s more to Man Utd than Zlatan’

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I wasn’t surprised at Ndong’s error but thought Denayer’s was even worse. Perhaps it was tiredness, perhaps just someone failed to move into a space when he expected otherwise. Whatever, those mistakes cost us dear  as without them it would have been 1-1, thanks to a goal by Borini. Or would it? […]

Manchester United 3-1 Sunderland. Nowhere near the end of the world

MANUawayFT

  If we can go on scoring goals like this, from Fabio Borini and only by then for pride and goal difference, we’ll be all right. Having spent Christmas in France – just three nights – I was driving home when the match against Manchester United kicked off. I’d boldly gone for 1-1 at ESPN […]

Moyes on the Boys post Man Utd: both resilient and suicidal

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

David Moyes didn’t have a happy return to Old Trafford as he watched us twice give away possession and then concede. You can find what he thinks of this by sneaking a peek at the carefully crafted letter he wrote to M Salut, and maybe one or two others, immediately after the game: (more…)

Sixers Sevens: Manchester United capitalise on errors

Jake gives Sixer star billing

What would your seven be? Mine would be “Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy, and it cost us”. The truth is we were always chasing the game after the first goal but giving away the second and third killed us, especially as we, as Pete Sixsmith says in seven words …”scored the best goal of the game”.  Pete also sent […]

Return of Poznangate: ‘small-time’ pettiness (Manchester United view) or harmless banter?

Crime of the century or inevitable banter?

It’s a familiar question in the ‘Who are You?’ series: what do you think, we ask opposing fans, of Sunderland – the club, the fans, the city and region, David Moyes? This is how Dale O’Donnell, our Manchester United interviewee (he’s editor of the the Stretty News fan site), replied: ‘Yeah, I thought we looked […]

Manchester United vs SAFC: recalling a glorious win when Jozy shone too

Jake: 'the moment we cancelled trips to Derby and Leeds'

Four wins in seven games have given us all a lift – and Sunderland a chance. We know Old Trafford presents a stiffer test than Hull, Watford or hungover Leicester at home, or Bournemouth away for that matter. But it is a test to which Sunderland have risen and should be capable of rising again. […]
