Another international break, another chance to catch up on our favourites for the promotion and playoff places. You might remember they were, in no particular order, Fulham, Leeds, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland. How have they done? (If you’re new to this series, or if you want to catch up, you can trot […]

Sunderland opponents and their grounds: Sixer’s series as good as it gets

Jake's generic Salut gif

    Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back. He collects bits and bobs of beer money, the odd mug or print or match ticket paid for,  but nothing that remotely reflects all he does, mostly for Salut! Sunderland but also in unpaid appearances […]

Cardiff, Ipswich, Forest, Wolves and Sheffield Utd leave Villa, Fulham, Wednesday, Middlesbrough and SAFC standing

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

Do we know owt about football? That’s what I asked a couple of years ago, when I was comparing a pre-season poll with end-of season positions. And that’s more or less what the Mrs said  when I showed her the graph I’d done to compare the current championship placings with our readers’ pre-season expectations. Just […]

Great series begins at Derby, Bury, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday, Carlisle, Leeds and Barnsley

Pete Sixsmith sees the clouds looming on Teesside

Monsieur Salut writes: when Pete Sixsmith suggested a series looking at his first encounters with Sunderland’s opposing teams or their grounds, I had minor doubts. That’s 46 articles plus the cup games – assuming he does each team for home games, each ground for away ties – on top of all else he contributes to […]

Sixer’s Sheffield Soapbox: Smiling in August – and it’s good.

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith sent a half-time seven last night: “Playing well but need a second goal”. Unfortunately, it never came and I, for one, was worried by the arrival of Stephen Fletcher in the second half, because I’ve seen him at his best and ex-players do well against us. He did do OK. But how OK, […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sheffield Wednesday 1-1 Sunderland. Tough going after missed chances

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith‘s instant seven-word verdicts on Sunderland games are part of the staple diet of Salut! Sunderland. If he is not present, the supersub’s snap judgement is preceded by an asterisk. Tonight, he was indeed present as George Honeyman gave us an early lead, Grabban and Vaughan missed good chances to extend it and after […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

Mr Sixsmith – Pete or Sixer to most – has sternly corrected Monsieur Salut. The series is not to be passed off as The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team regardless of context; it’s Ground if we’re playing them away, Team if it’s at the Stadium of Light. So this latest edition is TFTEISYG […]

Sheffield Wednesday Who are You?: from dreading Portsmouth’s fate to good times again

Jake: 'let's be having you'

Dave Briggs* is a Sheffield Wednesday fan who has seen good times, wretched times and better times. The good times presumably included seven years deejaying in Greece. Last season’s playoff final defeat was a bitter disappointment but he relished the challenge for promotion after so much underachievement in recent years. Dave thinks we may need […]

Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Guess the Score: extending Grayson’s run?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

  Pete Sixsmith had a long trek home from East Anglia yesterday. I bet the fish and chips tasted especially good at Wetherby after a fine 3-1 win. We’ll doubtless hear from him some time day – his report of the match, and his travels leading up to it, is eagerly awaited. In the meantime, […]
