Malcolm Dawson writes…………..Santa called early this year and on his way to bring joy and happiness to the children of Weardale and the greater North East, popped Pete Sixsmith‘s season card through my letterbox.

Sixer’s Substitute’s Soapbox: no celebrations as The Royals come to town


Malcolm Dawson writes………with Peter Sixsmith huffing and puffing his way around Weardale at this time of year, telling anyone who’ll listen (and a few who don’t want to) as he dishes out the Christmas cheer, just why it is that Santa wears red and white, his seat at the Stadium was going spare and so […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 4 Cardiff City 0. Acclaim a job done in style

How Jake captured the heartening outcome of the last Sunderland-Cardiff City game

Monsieur Salut writes: we fretted all week, tried all means of bolstering our own confidence, worried as usual about Sunderland’s habit of shooting self in foot – but kept believing. With good reason. An emphatic win lifts the Lads out of the bottom three, an achievement considered all but impossible less than two weeks ago. […]

Sixer’s Peterborough Soapbox: relief all round as Cats purr their way to victory

Jake's own three-word verdict: 'Ooh, Bally, Bally'

The atmosphere around the Stadium of Light last night was not that of a club in crisis writes Malcolm Dawson. Mind you when I arrived outside the ground an hour before kick off it was obviously typical of a League Cup fixture – quieter than Bishop Auckland on a Friday night when the bouncers outside […]
