Sixer’s Substitute’s Peterborough Soapbox: entertaining night at the Stadium of Light

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I am not renowned for showing extremes of emotion and tend to just go with the flow for the most part, but last night I went through a whole gamut of emotions. Firstly, as Pete Sixsmith and I travelled into town from the County Durham hinterland a listener called in to Radio Newcastle’s […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Peterborough United will be happy with that point

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith  sent a text with about 20 minutes to go: “Oviedo red card. Correct and totally unnecessary” and I began to wonder  how we could hold out against a team that scores at will when we have only one clean sheet to our name. We couldn’t, but we did manage to match them and […]

Sunderland vs Peterborough ‘Who are you?’: from Posh Spice to posh football

Jake: 'Like a cup final? Nah, much more important than that!'

Monsieur Salut writes: as a boy, I briefly loved Peterborough United almost as much as I have most of my life loved Sunderland. There was the romance of a little club battling against official woodentops for entry into the Football League despite astonishing non-league success. Finally, they made it – and continued to excel. I’d […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Peterborough United

John McCormick writes: The time’s right and I saw all of the players Pete mentions below, including George Kinnell, but I have only the most fleeting memories of this game.  So fleeting that the scoreline rings no bells with me, and surely it should. Could it be that I wasn’t there and I’m suffering from […]

SAFC vs Peterborough prize Guess the Score: more than a mug at stake

Click Jake's image to enter

If Sunderland beat Peterborough on Tuesday night, that would be our result of the season so far. Posh have been playing outstanding football and are still second, two places above us, despite unexpectedly dropping two home points against Blackpool while we, slightly disappointingly, could only draw at Coventry, What greater test of the Jack Ross […]

Another big Sunderland following will be on the road this weekend for the visit to Coventry City and the Ricoh, hardly a name with the appeal to any football fan of Highfield Road but the one demanded by the Japanese sponsors of the the sports, hotel and shopping complex where it is situated. Will the […]

There should have been an update to this series (see the archive links below for the earlier posts) at the start of the season but I travelled up early for the Charlton game, spending the Friday in Leeds before driving on to the North-East, then when I got back home I did a match report to […]

John McCormick writes:  if you want to know the origin of the headline you’ll have to read on to the middle of this piece, where Malcolm, our esteemed deputy editor, has reworked a version of the old Fulwell End favourite “Monty is better than Yashin” following a recent barrage of voting from the Sky Blue bit of […]

Burton, Scunthorpe or Peterborough – who’ll join Sunderland, Barnsley, Charlton and Portsmouth?

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

UPDATE: we saw the poll had grown, improbably, to 11,000+ votes with Coventry way out in front on 26 per cent. Couldn’t blame Jimmy Hill this time but something was clearly up.  For the culprits, go to the Coventry site Sky Blues Talk    … but don’t get too cross as our lot would gladly have done the same […]

Barnsley drop, Burton and Posh replace Luton and Scunthorpe, Walsall get off the bottom in our promotion poll.

When I first put this poll up, a mere week ago, I wrote “this is predominantly a Sunderland site and we aren’t claiming results are totally unbiased… …Nevertheless, I think it’s fair to say that SAFC  fans have not been blindly optimistic.” After only a week I would not able to add a lot to this statement, […]
