Sixer’s Sevens: the short, sharp match verdict

pete2


This is the slot where Salut! Sunderland‘s inimitable chronicler and sage casts his instant judgement on every SAFC match – well nearly every one – from the moral high ground of having been there. Agree or disagree with his seven-word verdict as you will, but they come from the heart of a first-rate analyst of any football game. They will appear as soon after each final whistle as we can manage (which sometimes may not be as soon as we’d like). If an asterisk precedes the comment, the words that follow are the work of someone else. Each week, we update to include the latest verdict plus the previous five – a link at the end takes you to the full recent history of Sixer’s Sevens…

Oct 31 2010 Newcastle United (3) 5 SAFC (0) 1 A complete embarrassment from beginning to end

Oct 23 2010 SAFC (1) 1 Aston Villa (0) 0 Just enough to hang on, but shaky

Oct 18 2010 Blackburn Rovers (0) 0 SAFC (0) 0 A complete waste of a Monday night

Oct 2 2010 SAFC (0) 0 Manchester United (0) 0 Were superior throughout and completely outplayed United

Sat Sept 25 2010 Liverpool (1) 2 SAFC (1) 2 Showed real quality and deserved to win

Tues Sept 21 2010 Carling Cup: SAFC (1) 1 West Ham (1) 2 Disappointing: as flat as Saturday was sharp
