Sixer’s Sheffield Wednesday Soapbox: not enough to pass the test but A for effort

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..there were plenty of positives to take from last night’s game, both on and off the field. Off the field the new administration’s decision to seat the majority of fans in the East Stand made economic and logistical sense as well as projecting a better image to the watching television audience and creating […]

Sixer’s Sheffield Wednesday Seven: out but not disgraced

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith was not to be found in the matchday (matchnight?) programme for the League Cup game against the Owls. But he was present for a 2-0 defeat in which there was plenty to admire in Sunderland’s performance. He reckoned we played some really nice football before poor Ozturk’s awful error in the first half […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team (in the League Cup): Sheffield Wednesday

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith wrote about Sheffield Wednesday last season, as you no doubt remember. Today he makes a brief return to that fine old club and the only time we’ve played them in the League Cup. There’s not much more for me to say, given the circumstances of that meeting, as I’m sure you’ll […]

Sheffield Wednesday Who are You?: ‘League One might be good for you. We should know’

Jake: 'back on the Wembley trail?'

Monsieur Salut writes: at around this time last season, Dave Briggs* gave us some great responses as a Sheffield Wednesday supporter before Sunderland’s trip to Hillsborough for a Championship game. He also got the result spot-on, saying we’d be ahead at the interval but they’d equalise and the match would end 1-1. Now the Owls […]

SAFC vs Sheffield Wednesday prize Guess the Score: we’re the underdogs

He's not in a good mood so no size this time. Click the image to have a go anyway

It is a fact of life as we find it, says Monsieur Salut. Sunderland start the Carabao Cup tie (league cup to you and me) against the Owls on Thursday night as lower-league underdogs. While we all hope that situation will last for only one season – unless, contrary to the expectations of many of […]

Will Cardiff or Fulham join Wolves, and will Derby join Villa and Middlesbrough?

This will be my final dodgy numbers post of the season. (If you haven’t seen the previous ones you can follow the link above, and/or those below). There is still a game to go, and two questions remain unanswered, but we can now look at the league table and judge how well our start of […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sheffield Wednesday make for a depressing Bank Holiday Monday

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….there was no Northern League today. A light dusting of snow early morning and a whole heap of surface water all around the North East ensured the Bank Holiday Monday morning fixtures had no chance of going ahead. There were cash turnstiles at the Stadium of Light so was I tempted to go. […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Awful Defending Gives Sheffield Wednesday the Game

Jake

You might notice the headline has seven words. You might think Pete Sixsmith sent them. You would be wrong. Pete’s own seven words, sent immediately post match, convey pretty much the same sentiment, only more emphatically, and they spell out the implications for Sunderland rather than for Sheffield Wednesday: (more…)

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Sheffield Wednesday

Pete Sixsmith, Hangin' Round

John McCormick writes:  I visited the Statcat to check if we played Sheffield Wednesday in 1968 as I had memories of their supporters in the back room of the Cambridge when I was still an underage drinker. I found I could have been out a year in either direction as we were in the same […]

Guess-the-score-1024x768

Seven games to go and after that resounding win at Derby on a very Good Friday, Sheffield Wednesday are the Easter Monday visitors to the Stadium of Light. For once, it looks as if we may have to do without a Who are You? interview. Monsieur Salut did find a willing candidate. There’s a good […]
