Sixer’s Accrington Sevens: when the result matters and the team delivers it’s a good day, despite…

Jake

Pete Sixsmith gives us value for money on yet another trip across the Pennines. He sent a pre-match text telling us he had arrived on a warm afternoon, followed that with texts commenting on woeful defending – both ours and theirs – then gave us a seven word text telling us about the first half […]

Sixer’s Peterborough Sevens: Posh spice too hot for Sunderland.

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith didn’t get to this game (I bet he’s glad about that) and we’re relying for Bob Chapman for tomorrow’s report. It might be a little later than usual but, as all things Bob, it will be very welcome. Unlike the result, the red cards and the 7 word text that winged its way […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Grigg’s off the mark and Burnley are turfed out of the cup

Jake

Pete Sixsmith gets to a lot of Sunderland games home and away – though he’s introduced a ban on matches south of Lincoln this season – and whizzed across the Pennines to show solidarity with Bury and Bolton and watch the Lads at Turf Moor. Only the Carabao Cup. But up against Premier League opposition again. […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland keep the momentum going against AFC Wimbledon

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: yesterday Pete Sixsmith’s piece raised plenty of questions about ownership and investment. Underlying them was the question of whether or not we’d go up this season. Have we developed the ruthless killer-off streak that was missing last year? Charlie Wyke’s form suggests we might have but two games don’t make a season. […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Rochdale don’t make it easy but Sunderland get there

Jake

John McCormick writes: I should have been there today but life got in the way, as it so often does. Instead, because I’m too superstitious to subscribe to Ifollow I’m making do with updates on various websites and awaiting mid-game texts from Pete Sixsmith (Rochdale very effective, we are less so came at half time) […]

Sixer’s sevens: Portsmouth make it heavy at the Stadium of Light

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: Let’s not quibble. We were not good. However, we had enough character to come back from a poor goal against a team that will feature at the end of the season and that must bode well,  for morale as much as for League position. Such wins are not to be sniffed at […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Burnley beckons after comfortable win at Accrington Stanley

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….circumstances meant I couldn’t get to Accrington this evening, which is a shame because despite the rain and the abandoned game on my last visit, this together with Rochdale, is one of the venues I was really looking forward to revisiting this year. And presumably the Stanley Chairman is still miffed with Stewart […]

Sixers Sevens: Gooch rescues a point at Ipswich

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….with Pete otherwise engaged today Bob Chapman was our man at Portman Road. Do people still do the pools? If they do then no guessing which team’s fixture should be marked with an X on Littlewoods or Vernons.  We went behind. No surprise there then. We equalised. Not unusual either. I don’t suppose […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Oxford set the scene for the season

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I was surprised at that line-up and wonder how much it had to do with match fitness. Whatever the reason, the performance in the first half will have given Jack Ross some food for thought. Still, a point is better than nowt, as my granny never said. But myself, Pete Sixsmith, who […]

Sixer’s Sevens from Oxford United 1-1 SAFC: another letdown

Sevens (640 pixels wide)

Pete Sixsmith was happy enough at half time with a ‘decent’ first 45 and a Jimmy Dunne header – from a corner believe it or not – giving Sunderland the advantage. For those not among our 1,800 fans present at the Kassam Stadium, Barnes and Benno made for less reassuring listening. We appeared to live […]
