Sixer’s Sevens: QPR get one against 10 men as we unbolt the trapdoor ourselves

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Could we have got something from this game? I thought so, but Bob Chapman’s report will give a more accurate picture than the SAFC website and that won’t arrive until tomorrow. Bob will be reporting in the Place of  Pete Sixsmith, who decided against a trip to Loftus Road. Even so, it was Pete who forwarded […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: QPR and Loftus Road

sixsmith writes(sky)-1

John McCormick writes: I had to check with the Statcat when this one came up – why did I not see us play at QPR when I lived in London? It transpires they were promoted in 1973. I was busy that year and didn’t notice them going up, just before I moved to London, and […]

QPR vs SAFC Who are You?: ‘money wasted on wrong players and managers’

One Jake

Monsieur Salut writes: Ian McCullough* is a seasoned sportswriter and a friend of a friend (John Crowley, who has also occupied this hot seat). He supports QPR but has a soft spot for Sunderland and will be at Saturday’s match with a Mackem pal. His assessment of QPR’s decline could as easily apply to us. […]

Click Jake's image to enter

But in the wake of Tuesday night’s surrender to Aston Villa, Salut! Sunderland’s Facebook group gained three new members. Not spammers, hookers or chancers – we get applictaions from them, too […]

Monsieur Salut writes: Clive Whittingham, the editor of the QPR fan site Loft For Words, did the honours in our Who are You? hot seat. He asked for a reciprocal gesture which we were naturally happy to make. He also asked Roker Report and we are fine with that, too (I have to cast the […]

Sixer’s Sevens: QPR 1-2 Sunderland. McNair the killer striker

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

QPR v Sunderland: Guess the score

Enter, whoever you support. And don't worry if you are new to posting comments here. If yours is held for moderation - a simple anti-spam device - we will know when it was contributed and, in the case of more than one readers posting the same prediction, who was first ...

John McCormick writes: Rodney Marsh had moved from QPR by the time I went to live in London but they were still a club to admire. Panache, perhaps, would be the word that best fitted them as they came close, oh, so close, to winning the League, and how we neutrals wanted them to. (more…)
