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?

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, […]

And so we have it: the fixtures are out. You’ll be getting your fill of dates, and conjecture from all over, no doubt, and enjoying the pre-season buzz of anticipation that it brings. But when you’re tucked up under the sheets, reading Charles Buchan’s “Football Monthly” with a torch and reality bites, do you think […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2 Peterborough United 0. Job done, bravo Bally

Jake says Pete is the star man

At half time, Pete Sixsmith, custodian of the seven-word matchday verdicts that appear here as Sixer’s Sevens, was down to five words: ‘competent enough against modest opposition.’ After two misses, Emanuele Giaccherini had scored with a clinical half-volley from a fine Lee Cattermole cross. All the players celebrated, which Nick Barnes and Gary Bennett interpreted […]

SAFC v Peterborough United: a non-revolutionary, post-PDC Guess the Score

Srirtign before the sacking, Jake said: 'If it goes tits up against this mob I reckon Paolo may find himself wearing a concrete overcoat..'

Whether the revolution is over or on hold, just waiting for a new leader, there’s business to be done. Kevin Ball has passion and knowledge, commands respect and does his level best. No one could prepare players better than he’ll be doing for the third round Capital One cup game against Peterborough. You’d want him […]

SAFC vs Peterborough Who are You?: ‘it’ll soon be a league fixture’

  Jake asks the question ... see how others so far this season have replied by clicking on the image

Amid all this turmoil, there’s work to be done. It falls to Kevin Ball to drum up enthusiasm among the rebellious waifs and strays left behind by the PDC whirlwind. If anyone can do it, surely it’s Bally who somehow produced a home win, the only one of the season, as caretaker manager when we […]
