Revitalise the Premier: expand Chelsea, Manchester, Arsenal hierarchy, send bottom six down

Click me for a better view of the ingredients: geographical references to Jake, M Salut & Sixer, Malcolm Dawson and John McCormick

Ordinary Jon, aka Jon Adamson, Sunderland supporter and football blogger******, was bored rigid by the vaunted Premier League last season. Even our customary great escape left him feeling there’d been only two or three SAFC games worth remembering and that ours wasn’t even the great escape anyway. His recipe for making life at the top […]

Masochism (3): Sixer mounts his Soapbox to denounce QPR shambles

Jake: 'when a man's tired of Sunderland ...;

Sunderland AFC please take note. If as loyal and long-standing and (sitting) a fan as Pete Sixsmith is beginning to cry ‘enough is enough’, something’s up. This is how Sixer saw the rotten collective surrender to QPR, complete with a literary allusion to ‘lives of quiet desperation’. Go to the home page – salutsunderland.com and […]

Masochism (2): Sunderland’s player ratings vs QPR. ‘Worse than Norwich away’

Jake's reaction echoed that friend of Sixer's: 'why am I not surprised?

If you thought Rob Hutchison was harsh with his one-word verdicts and low player ratings after the shambles of last night, prepare to reconsider. Rob was positively benign compared with Keir Bradwell, who cannot bring himself to award higher than an average of 3/10 for the starting 11. Keir uses that infamous defeat at Norwich […]

Masochism (1): Sunderland’s players ratings – but who was ‘phenomenal’ for QPR?

Jake the rebel

Prepare for more pain. The beatings will continue until morale improves. After a night when Sunderland collectively expressed a Premier status death wish or – if you prefer – gave a new definition to the notion of ‘cruel and unusual punishment’, we have the customary sets of player ratings. First up is Rob Hutchison, with […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0 QPR 2. An utter disgrace

Jake's reaction echoed Sixer's: 'why am I not surprised?'

At half time, we were two down and poor old Pete Sixsmith already had a seven-word verdict: ‘Abysmal from the first minute. Utterly hopeless’. If that seems like sitting on the fence, there was little more than some blustering huff and puff to come. Pete had known at the interval, most of us had known, […]

Fabio Borini: Liverpool, Sunderland, QPR … the authorised version

Jake knows how to capture Fabio at his best

Read this article from @Knox_Harrington ! He red my mind! Thank you… — fabio borini (@borinifabio29) September 3, 2014 The world and his dog have a view on the Fabio Borini affair.

Sixer’s QPR Soapbox: Sunderland slip up as Cattermole made to tread egg shells

Jake: a diminished Lee means a diminished SAFC

Pete Sixsmith‘s wisest decision on Saturday was his choice of pub, the trick being to beat the ploddish Met Police anti-supporter radar, get a good pint and not still have miles to make up to reach the ground. Notting Hill Gate, the Commissioner will doubtless be surprised and relieved to hear, survived the visit from […]

QPR Who are You?: SAFC fans ‘don’t age well, but Joey does’

Kieran as Paul McCartney at the playoff final

Kieran Robinson – check him out at kieranrobinson.com – was recommended to us as a QPR candidate for ‘Who are You?’ by Steve Colwell, a great friend this site who is not only a Rangers fanatic but at least twice an occupant of this little hot seat. He reports on the Old Bill’s heavy-handed (sorry […]

QPR vs SAFC ‘Guess the Score’: no beer, no prize

Jake: 'don't put us through hoops, Lads'

Can two sets of supporters, from good, decent football clubs, be trusted to share the same licensed premises with a couple of coppers on hand to nip any nonsense in the bud? The answer from the Met is No. So make sure to get your pre-match pints in Kings Cross or elsewhere. Shepherds Bush may […]
