Sixer’s weekend off. Snowfall, no football but Millwall

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I had one of Millwall or QPR pencilled in as my London weekend away. Circumstances meant neither could be but those circumstances also meant we could book some time away at the back end of winter. We chose to visit the Lake District as February changed into March. I took the photo […]

Hutch’s one word ratings from Millwall, with a message for Fletcher

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison, or maybe his daughter Olivia, sent his post-match verdict to M Salut, who sent it on to me. Short and sweet it is; like the aforementioned Olivia and certainly not like me or that other Short we’ve come to question. And all the better for that: (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Millwall expected to win, we needed to. An underwhelming draw

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith wasn’t travelling to this match and what appears here is likely to be a joint effort with John McCormick, Pete Sixsmith and Monsieur Salut – all from afar – and maybe Bob Chapman from the Den all chipping in. As M Salut writes, Sunderland’s failure to respond to Millwall’s second half pressure after taking […]

A champion Championship series: the first time Sixer saw your ground or your team

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

Most weeks, readers of Salut! Sunderland drop by on Friday morning to catch the latest instalment in Pete Sixsmith’s twin series, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground (if the game in question is away), Team (if it’s at the Stadium of Light).

Millwall Who are You?: ‘ridiculous for SAFC to be in this situation’

Jake says: 'click the Who are You? banner to see the series so far this season'

Stephen Jones*, our Millwall ‘Who are You?’ volunteer, joins the growing number of outsiders who doubt our ability to get out of trouble. Gone are the words of encouragement from earlier in the season. People who do not support Sunderland see the same signs as those who do. Of course, a few wins would change […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground – Sixer goes to Millwall

Sixer by Jake

Pete Sixsmith is a member of the 92 Club and if you take in all the non league, lower league, overseas grounds and empty stadiums he’s visited, is probably a member of the 7,092 club.  Today he takes us back to a time when loon pants, platform shoes, tank tops and kipper ties were the […]

Millwall vs SAFC Guess the Score: Lions tamed or Lions rampant?

Click Jake's image to enter

What will our leaky defence do next? Your guess is as good as mine but it could win you a prize, albeit only a mug. Guess the Score is early again this week as Monsieur Salut is braving the Siberian chill to drive to what should be sunnier climes except that its snowing there as […]

Sixer’s Millwall Soapbox: Black Cats can’t see off the Lions

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….I’m starting to get worried. Following on from the shining example of scribemeister Pete Sixsmith, I have embarked on a weight loss campaign and now some 40lbs lighter (just another 40 to go!) I find that the pain in my knees is considerably less and I am walking much better. The fact my […]

The first time ever I saw your team: Millwall

Salut Banner2(featured image)

John McCormick writes – I  do remember a trip to the Old Den in the ’70s but like Pete Sixsmith, I struggle to remember seeing Millwall at Roker and it’s possible I never did.  From 1970 I was a student down south in Yorkshire and I often played sport rather than watched it. I did […]

If Millwall’s visit isn’t worrying enough, Steve Bruce’s Aston Villa are up next

By Jake

Sunderland’s shameful home record will become officially the worst in English football history on Saturday if Millwall are not beaten at the Stadium of Light. Nineteen games – 18 in the Premier League and Championship and one in the FA Cup – have passed since a scrappy 1-0 defeat of Watford in December last year. […]
