Our best defenders: Part 1, individual comparisons

Midfielders' wins, draws and losses

When I did my analysis of our midfield I said it would probably be one of two posts but there was so much to collect and compare that I decided to split the second part into two. To begin, I’m using stats from  hosted stats.com, Squawka.com and my own sums to look at individual performances. Who do you think is better […]

Sixers Says: U21s’ title challenge intact after uninspiring win at Middlesbrough

Catch

Malcolm Dawson writes……they say as we get older we revert to childhood. In my case that means buying two ounces of black bullets and needing someone to cut my toenails for me. Pete Sixsmith on the other hand has got himself a paper round and spends his hard earned cash on lucky bags and going […]

Sixer’s Swansea Soapbox: always good to win away in Europe

Jake says "Vital!"

Malcolm Dawson writes…..Peter Sixsmith made a night of it. Having not only the chance of a cheap ticket but also a lift to the Valleys from a repentant brother, father of our recent Arsenal WAY contributor, he jumped at the chance to head off to South Wales. At half time, those of us stuck at […]

Sixer’s Villa Soapbox: old guard see us through basement battle

VillaH(FT)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….Sixsmith Towers was a haven of joy and celebration this morning as Pete Sixsmith listened to Test Match Special’s description of Durham cricketer Ben Stokes totally destroying the South African bowling. World records tumbled as the highest ever partnership compiled by two ginger headed batsman put the game (and probably the series) beyond […]

Sixer’s Liverpool Soapbox: when even doing one’s best just isn’t enough

Malcolm Dawson writes……it’s hard to put a positive spin on another defeat when we are at least seven points off safety. But I’ll have a go. To anyone who would have settled for two draws this week I’ll say we’ll be better off if we scrape a win on Saturday. But nothing is guaranteed against […]

Sixer’s post Everton Soapbox: no good at Goodison

Jake: 'sort it out, Sam'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..it could have been a perfect weekend for Pete Sixsmith. In fact it could have been a brilliant week as there was footy on every day, starting with the Under 21s’ game on Monday and ending with the senior side’s visit to Merseyside yesterday. It didn’t quite work out like that with a […]

Sixer Says (before disappearing): Wes Brown and what the retained list overlooks

Jake remembers Wes in one of those wins vs Man City

Pete Sixsmith is about to vanish beneath a tall pile of exam papers to mark. It’s a wretched job but has to be done and helps towards season ticket purchases for SAFC and Durham County Cricket Club. Before he pulled on his history teaching/examiner’s hat, he took a look at Sunderland retained list (*see in […]

Pure Poyetry: Defending the defensive but defending too much against Man Utd

Jake: 'i didn't expect much - and got nothing'

Malcolm Dawson writes….Sixer and I saw SAFC concede twice today and have a man sent off but they not only maintained but in fact strengthened their title challenge. No I haven’t gone mad – we were at Dean Street where Shildon scored two cracking goals after twice going behind against Northern League leaders West Auckland. […]

Behind Enemy Lines: shaky Fulham sink shaky Forest

Jake's so far away in Spain, that the chances are he'll have to opt for square

Rob Hutchison, our man of single word player assessments took a trip to the north bank of the Thames last night to take in a not so sneak preview of our F.A. Cup opponents. Here’s what he saw – little to fear for a Premier League side he thinks but as we all know too […]

Pure Poyetry from Liverpool: Cats secure Anfield draw

Jake: 'phew! ..But the Lads did well'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..last Saturday afternoon, on my way to the Stadium of Light, I gazed out over Roker beach at a sea that was a deep shade of battleship grey. It seemed appropriate with the week ahead. Although like all fans I live in hope, the little nagging voice of realism was telling me that […]
