Portsmouth then Sunderland, Ipswich, Rotherham, Peterborough and Coventry top our poll. But where are Lincoln?

On Friday we had over 3,000 visitors, followed by a quiet weekend. Not everyone took part in our top six poll  but over 1200 votes (not voters) have now been cast. That’s not bad, I suppose, for a League One fans’ site but I am expecting a few more will chip in before the season […]

Ipswich or Portsmouth? Rotherham or Peterborough? How about Lincoln or Coventry? It’s your choice

Last season our punters got it more or less right and correctly predicted most of the top six. Luton were missed but that was mainly down to the Coventry Ninjas, whose hijack of last year’s poll pushed them (Luton) out of the top places. Maybe the ninjas or another club’s fans will do the same […]

It was on 18th June that I put up the first in this series, covering the League One clubs beginning A-L, apart from Bury, Blackpool and Bolton. This, part two, was intended to cover the back end of the alphabet but, at 2,300 words, ended up far too big for a single webpage. There was […]

Letter from Liverpool: colour blind in Hull, Cardiff and Sunderland

It’s not just M Salut and Mr Sixsmith, not to mention MOTD, who are celebrating 50 years of supporting, as you can see from my photo. It really was a different era then, and not just because televised football consisted of an hour of black and white on a Saturday night. The Land of the […]

MK Dons Soapbox: master class in retention and passing. Guess who from

If the ghost of the English poet and playwright William Congreve will pardon yet another distortion of his most famous line, hell hath little fury like Pete Sixsmith watching Sunderland against lower league opposition in the cup. That was for 75 minutes of Sunderland v MK Dons. Suddenly, imminent humiliation was pushed aside, anger turning […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 4 MK Dons 2. Where did that come from?

Jake says Pete is the star man

What is it about Sunderland? That’s what poor old Nick Barnes was asking on BBC Radio Newcastle just before he spilt tea down Simon Pryde’s back. Other teams put out much-changed teams for the Capital One Cup and still romp to victory against lower league opponents. Sunderland fail, even against other weakened sides. At half […]

SAFC vs MK Dons Guess the Score: goals galore or banana skin?

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

It’s that time of the year again, the first fortnight of a new season when Sunderland supporters tell themselves the spirit of ’73 will be revived by the start of a new march all the way to a Wembley final. We look at the draw for the first round in which SAFC are involved and, […]

Sunderland v MK Dons ‘Who are You?’: exorcising the Wimbledon ghosts

Jake expects progress for once  ..

Last season we played them away and won despite the obligatory Cattermole red card. This season we’ve drawn them at home. Sunderland owe it to the fans to make a decent stab at the Capital One cup for a change. Can we notch our first win of the season, a good confidence booster before the […]

Promotion poll: Sunderland vie with Portsmouth but can Burton, Lincoln or Doncaster make top six?

Plenty of this from the Roker End last night.

John McCormick, associate editor, writes: things have quietened down with our ‘who to follow’ poll, as we might expect. Portsmouth, […]
