Sixer’s Sevens: Chelsea (a)


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…

Nov 14 Chelsea (0)0 SAFC (1) 3 Best performance in years: a stunning show

Nov 9 2010 Tottenham Hotspur (0) 1 SAFC (0) 1 * Classy equaliser, gutsy defending bring just reward

Nov 6 2010 SAFC (1) 2 Stoke City (0) 0 New boys beat old boys – but wobbly

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

    As a chelsea fan Id just like to say congratulations on the best away performance I’ve seen at the bridge in many a year. Well played and thoroughly deserved.

    You beauties: that must ease the pain of the Newcastle game. And many thanks from a gooner.

    What was that you were saying about not making them angry, Colin?
    And finally, someone other than Bent and Gyan scoring goals. Maybe this really is the start of a partnership between Gyan and Welbeck.

    Thanks to the Mags for giving us the wake up call; thanks to Mr Foy for keeping 11 Chelsea players on the field otherwise they’d have shut up shop; thanks to Brucey for leading a superb response; thanks to playing 2 up front away from home at Chelsea despite our top scorer injured. Thanks to all sorts of people really…..Roman for pissing the players off by sacking Butch and so on. etc etc inc Joey for showing his true colours by punching Pederson; Carroll’s assault victim for selling her story and so on with more to come.
