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 […]

New man for Sunderland hot seat, an older man on the A list

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

  Colin Randall writes: About the only way I could get through the first half of the Millwall game, even via the Barnes & Benno commentary on the club site, and what Gary Bennett called the worst goalkeeping (Robbin Ruiter) he could recall witnessing, was to read Pete Sixsmith‘s account of a night out with […]

Sixer’s Travels: dreaming of those twin towers (whoops the arch) again

Sixer by Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes……….not one to suffer the plight of the England Men’s Footballing XI in meaningless friendlies our regular correspondent Peter Sixsmith takes the opportunity to take in some non league football.

Sunderland, West Ham and Moyes. Sixer takes on Marco

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

It might be an exaggeration to say that pouring over the misfortunes of Sunderland AFC, and its sod-the-press-I-only-do-tame-inhouse-interviews owner, has become an international sport. But it’s certainly keeping the media busy. BBC Radio Newcastle’s Total Sport programme had the benefit of our Pete Sixsmith’s wisdom last night. He spoke gloomily about our immediate prospects – […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: if you’re old, like myself, Monsieur Salut, Malcolm and Pete Sixsmith, Bolton Wanderers will probably be there or thereabouts in your memories.

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith longs for the day he can write something upbeat about a Sunderland first-team performance. The visit of QPR offered no such opportunity.

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 1-1 QPR. Winning ‘still seems miles away’

Jake

Monsieur Salut writes: for much of the match against QPR at the Stadium of Light, the Sunderland nightmare seemed be getting darker and darker. Pete Sixsmith reported that the defending was getting worse by the game as we went one down yet again. Until the McGeady equaliser, QPR seemed more likely to score again. Gary […]
