Sixer’s Scunthorpe Soapbox: Sunderland fail to flatter as Iron pressure pays

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes………tied up as I am in a hotel in Lytham St Anne’s (and before you get any ideas – not literally tied up – it’s not that sort of hotel!) with no commentary to listen to I was reduced to using a combination of the club website and the BBC’s for text updates […]

Sixer’s Scunthorpe Sevens: a good point but we need to find that poacher

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

What do you make of a draw at Scunny? A point gained or two thrown away? Luton open a gap, Barnsley close one and Portsmouth falter, so it’s a bit mixed. On the whole, against a very in-form side I’m inclined to be optimistic but I wasn’t there. Pete Sixsmith, who was, will give us […]

It’s over 100 years since E M Forster wrote “The Machine Stops”. If you haven’t read it I suggest you give it a go. After you have you won’t worry too much about the slight delay to the publication of this post in Pete Sixsmith’s “First Time ” series. You might, however, worry about the […]

Monsieur Salut writes: Ian Moore* came our way thanks to Matt Blanchard from the Scunthorpe Iron-Bru fan site and podcast (Matt answered our questions in superb style before the first game, which Sunderland won 3-0). It’s another fine addition to the best Who are You? series I can recall in Salut! Sunderland‘s 12 years of […]

Barnsley lurk behind Peterborough, Portsmouth and Sunderland, while Charlton and Coventry stutter.

With a break this weekend it’s time to revisit our “Ones to watch”. If you’ve been following this series you’ll remember that we’re tracking six clubs over the course of the season. The six were chosen by a people’s vote, that new tool of democracy,  with the club which came top of the poll – Coventry City – […]

Sixer’s Scunthorpe Soapbox: Iron can’t cope with the hard press

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..two weeks ago we celebrated the first win of the Donald/Methvyn/Jack Ross era in a way that was hard to beat with a winner deep into time added on, having fallen behind in the first half. Today beat that. I’d like to say this was the perfect performance. It wasn’t and the manager […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Scunthorpe United ironed out in the first 45

Jake

I can’t remember the last time I put in a (3)-(0) to signify the half time scoreline when setting up for Pete Sixsmith’s post-game text. From what I read on the all too infrequent comments coming up on the SAFC website that score was well deserved and the final score could have been more. But 3-0 […]

Anglo-Saxon/Old Scandinavian in origin, it typically indicates an area of Danish settlement. Scunthorpe United doesn’t have have quite the same level of antiquity. It was founded in 1899 but it wasn’t […]

Sunderland vs Scunthorpe United prize Guess the Score: more goals for Maja?

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

The congestion of this week and next – with games tonight, Sunday and next Wednesday – means there’ll be an awful lot to fit in over the coming days. So apologies for Guess the Score for SAFC vs Scunthorpe appearing now. The same applied to the Scunny “Who are You?”. At least there’ll be plenty […]
