Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 2-2 West Ham. Welcome fight too little, too late

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: awful defending cost Sunderland the goals that made the start of each half so disappointing but at long last, effort was matched by an ability to score. Wahbi Khazri added pressure on David Moyes to explain rationally why he has been used so little with his astonishing curler directly for a corner […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Leicester City 2-0 SAFC. Decent fight, no punch

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: Sixer was absent again and we had few expectations. Seeing Cattermole in the starting XI and Anichebe on the bench (sent on late-ish) raised spirits, but we knew we were in such dire straits that only a win, with many more to follow, would do. After doing pretty well for an hour, […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Watford 1-0 Sunderland. Au revoir to the Premier League?

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: Nothing is actually settled. Losing 1-0 to Watford, deservedly as well, does not relegate Sunderland. But we know the game is up. We just aren’t good enough to do what Hull did in routine home game today, what Palace under Big Sam managed at Chelsea. A decent Borini shot late on and […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 0-0 Burnley. Unimaginative and wasteful

Jake: 'Benno got it right - just not enough'

Monsieur Salut writes: another wasted chance to keep in touch with anything remotely resembling safety. First half was abysmal, Burnley poor but often threatening whereas Sunderland were just poor. Very poor. Second half? Four or five excellent chances to score so it was undoubtedly better, but still so far short of being good enough. On […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0-2 Manchester City. Enough fight, no finish or finesse

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: we knew in our hearts how it would go. If only Fabio Borini’s header had been on target after Defoe hit the post and presented him with an open goal, if only David Silva’s passing wasn’t so precise, City weren’t so devastating on the break. If only. Positives: we put up a […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Everton 2-0 Sunderland. That sinking feeling

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes:  At half time, Sunderland having defended reasonably well without offering a threat to the Everton goal, went behind when Fabio Borini failed to track back and a swift move down the right ended up with the ball in the back of the net. Pete Sixsmith, suffering at Goodison, felt there was ‘no […]

Sixer’s Sevens: West Brom 2-0 SAFC. All but Honeyman throwing in towel

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: No Pete Sixsmith at the Hawthorns. He wisely gave himself a day off from the drudgery and misery of supporting Sunderland and caught a game (and maybe some decent fish and chips) at Whitby. Another wretched defeat, 2-0 as I am afraid I predicted at ESPN, and we’re where we probably deserve […]

Sixer’s Sevens: FA Cup 3rd Round replay. Burnley sink SAFC after another sad performance

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: The more Pete Sixsmith mentioned going to Burnley for the replay, the more I felt he was forcing himself to make the trip, such is the burden he carries as a Sunderland supporter and Salut! Sunderland chronicler. On commentary courtesy of Radio Newcastle, an increasingly exasperated Gary Bennett kept insisting we had a […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1-3 Stoke City. With barely a whimper

Jake: 'the curse Of Jack Rodwell is beyond a joke now. Maybe we should consider hiring an exorcist or witchdoctor or something'

Monsieur Salut writes: Is there no end to the pain to which Sunderland supporters are subjected by those rewarded handsomely to manage and play for the club? By the time Sunderland got started, 38 minutes into this miserable game, they were three down; it might have been four or five so easily had a well-organised […]

Sixer’s FA Cup Sevens: SAFC 0-0 Burnley. As Jake put it, ‘zzzzz….’

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: To no great surprise Pete Sixsmith preferred Shildon vs Atherton Collieries in the FA Vase. He kept in touch via Barnes and Benno, describing a drab game short on quality and ending goalless before all of 17.632 souls (but my emergency seven-worder appears for now). With a replay almost the last thing […]
