Sixer’s Sevens from Sheffield United: tremendous display sees off more Premier League opposition

Jake

Stop Press: and it’s another away game in the next round: hardly a glamour tie but at Oxford United, once again testing our (present) owners’ loyalties Monsieur Salut writes: bravo Max Power, bravo the Lads. It’s one of the traditions of Salut! Sunderland that Pete Sixsmith supplies a seven-word instant verdict – hence Sixer’s Sevens […]

Sixer’s Heartbreak Sevens: The Wembley curse lives on as Charlton gain promotion

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I watched on TV. I thought we were poor throughout, with our forwards and midfield struggling to link up,  and as a result we created few chances. I’m not saying Charlton deserved their victory but they did manage to put the ball into the net three times whereas we didn’t manage it […]

Sixer’s playoff Seven: Lads hold out for second trip to Wembley

Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes…….at half time Pete Sixsmith’s text was less than complimentary about our opponents who he feels reflect the attitude and personality of their manager. Watching on TV there were some obvious examples of what some might call acceptable gamesmanship and others underhand. But with a 1-0 lead at the three quarter mark I […]

Sixer’s play off Sevens: Sunderland 1 Portsmouth 0, featuring The Return of the King

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

A moral victory as well as an actual one, will that single goal be enough? That’s not a question I’m going to answer here as I don’t want to jinx a team that had more than enough bad luck in the first leg. It must be said the first 20 minutes were not good, but […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Southend survive. Sunderland slump. Some season!

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

We’ve had our own last game celebrations and it would be churlish to deny Southend theirs today. In a game that lacked quality they deserved as much as Sunderland and on this showing they’ll have a  chance to repeat this feat next season. Yet, I feel the team that started today won’t be the one […]

Sixer’s Fleetwood Sevens: Sunderland had to win, managed to lose

Jake

Pete Sixsmith made the short trip across the Pennines, writes John McCormick, with cuddly Joey Barton urging his Fleetwood men to send us home in tears. For the miracle to happen, Sunderland needed a hatful of goals, let alone what had to befall our promotion rivals. Lee Cattermole scored to give us a halftime lead […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Portsmouth do enough and it looks like the playoffs for Sunderland

Jake

For a short while it was looking good. We were winnng and Barnsley were losing. Then it all turned round  and, despite Luton’s loss, we didn’t do enough. Theoretically, we could still finish top but we know it won’t happen. More likely, we’ll be up against Charlton in the playoffs. I think it’s Pete Sixsmith‘s turn […]

Sixer’s Peterborough sevens. Bitterly disappointing

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Is there another twist to come? With only two or three games left time is not on our side, and nor are the fixtures.  We  might yet do it, and at the very least we have the playoffs, so all is not yet lost, but… …which means this away draw, against a tough team, is […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Doncaster caught out by Sunderland

Jake

  My first thought was “don’t concede early”. And we didn’t Then I thought “get a good start”. And we did. At 70 minutes I thought “Hang on for a clean sheet”. And we did These were good points earned today, in a game we knew we had to win. Pete Sixsmith (I think) will […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Coventry break Sunderland’s record at the Stadium of Light

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Phase One was accomplished midweek, when that single point was enough to move us beyond reach of Peterborough, the only team outside the top six with a chance (and the slimmest of chances at that) to pass us. Phase two will be much more difficult as just about every team we play has something to […]
