Sunderland opponents and their grounds: Sixer’s series as good as it gets

Jake's generic Salut gif

    Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back. He collects bits and bobs of beer money, the odd mug or print or match ticket paid for,  but nothing that remotely reflects all he does, mostly for Salut! Sunderland but also in unpaid appearances […]

Sixer’s Norwich Soapbox: Players are showing commitment to the club and to the support

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith has finally made it home from seat U2 in the Carrow Road football stadium (hence the reference in the introduction to Saturday’s Sevens).  He probably has just enough time to grab some rest before he heads off to Sheffield. But before he gets his head down here he is with […]

Sixers Sevens: Norwich have all the possession, we score all the goals

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith took his time in getting to Norwich, so we can look forward to an account of his ground-hopping as well as a match report from U2 at Carrow Road, where the seats have no name. (and perhaps Pete will include an explanation of what this means with his report**).

Norwich vs SAFC prize Guess the Score: a repeat of 2016 would be nice

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

We’ve had a first winner in this season’s Guess the Score series and it’s yet another correct prediction from Paul Devine, a Sunderland supporter exiled in the Netherlands. He sensed we would draw 1-1 with Derby County and was right. As I write, the Bury League Cup game is still to come. There may be […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: (3) Norwich City

A fine away win

This is turning into a classic series from Pete Sixsmith. Can he possibly keep it up? If he can, there must be a book in this gripping series of reminiscences from a man who has seen more football grounds than Donald Trump has mislaid staff. In the third instalment of The First Time Ever I […]

Sixer by Jake

Pete’s going to be busy for a while, so there’s a good chance we’ll have a new manager – maybe a new owner (not to mention the possibility of a new prime minister) – before he gets back to this series. In the meantime, here’s his take on relegation number 4. Like the first three, […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I was there, at Goodison, that night. For a long time afterwards I felt cheated but I was prepared to accept that Coventry fans would think “tough” – I would have done so in their circumstances.
