Seb Larsson goes to Hull with our best wishes – and thanks

came back but something was lacking

APOLOGIES FOR THE EARLIER LOSS OF THE SITE FROM THE WEB: IT SEEMS LIKELY ONE OF THE IMAGES USED OF SEB WAS TO BLAME. ITS REMOVAL HAS DONE THE TRICK There are departures and departures. Sometimes players go and we’re delighted to see the back of them, either because they proved to be useless for […]

Manchester United vs SAFC: recalling a glorious win when Jozy shone too

Jake: 'the moment we cancelled trips to Derby and Leeds'

Four wins in seven games have given us all a lift – and Sunderland a chance. We know Old Trafford presents a stiffer test than Hull, Watford or hungover Leicester at home, or Bournemouth away for that matter. But it is a test to which Sunderland have risen and should be capable of rising again. […]

Sixer’s Everton Soapbox: banishing the blues on Wearside (part 2)

Malcolm Dawson writes………if Saturday was immense then Wednesday night was immenser! The first part of the job was completed at the weekend with victory over the Blues of Chelsea.

SA’s Essay: decent Sunderland performance not enough against Arsenal

Jake says: 'made this earlier ...'

Malcolm Dawson writes….on the day that Storm Desmond hit the North East of England, those who braved the long journey down to North London were rewarded with a decent performance but with no end result. At least that’s how the manager sees it in the customary post match e-mail. ARSENAL 3 SUNDERLAND 1 Dear Colin, […]

Sunderland out west: the Taylor report from Toronto

Toronto welcome

Malcolm Dawson writes….as kick off approached I was enjoying a few excellent pints of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord and taking part in a pub quiz less than three miles from Toronto. Meanwhile Bill Taylor, who I don’t think is related to the founder of the Keighley based brewing company (though he might inform me otherwise) was […]

Arsenal Advochaat: we got what we deserved

Malcolm Dawson writes….I was OK for the first 60 minutes. Despite all the pressure from the home side I felt the boys were coping well. Then as the old song says “time goes by so slowly……but time can do so much” and the old nerves started to get the better of me. The oft held […]

Sixer’s Leicester City Soapbox: Arsenal and Chelsea no place for chokers

Malcolm Dawson writes….we have had several “must win” games at the Stadium of Light this season and generally (Burnley and Southampton apart) have failed to come up with the goods. A win against QPR, Villa, Hull or Palace and we would have been safe weeks ago. No I haven’t forgotten the Defoe wonder goal but […]

Sixer’s West Brom Soapbox: well at least we didn’t lose

Jake: 'better, but no cigar'

Malcolm Dawson writes….. “you must be pretty confident today” I said to the West Brom father and son combo as we grabbed a burger on our way up Millennium Way. His reply “Not really – this looks like a nil nil,” led to my asking about his thoughts on Pulis and he admitted that although […]

Sixer’s Fulham Soapbox: Should’ve gone to Shields v Shildon

SAFCvFULHAM(FT)

Malcolm Dawson writes……I couldn’t get to this game being otherwise occupied on the Fylde coast. Phew – got away with that one. Of course Pete Sixsmith gets to every home game and most away matches too but even his patience is being tested. The euphoria felt at Old Trafford and Sid James’ Park isn’t making […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: winter draws on as West Ham take a point

Jake: 'another draw, this is getting tedious'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..“Don’t be too unhappy going home girls – it’s a long way back,” I cheerfully remarked to two lasses in their claret and blue scarves heading for the North Stand Upper, before kick off yesterday. They probably weren’t, as a point each seemed fair after a decent game where both sides had chances. […]
