Sixer’s Sevens Stoke City U21s: Cats get the bonus in penalty shoot out

Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes…..this was a game that rarely got the pulses racing but was decent enough entertainment I thought. I suppose you’d have to say there was a reasonable crowd there but not that many that there was any need to queue for the loos or park miles away from the ground. But there were […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Youth thrown on, and throne to the Wolves

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Finally, we come to the end of a dismal season. One that has dashed hopes and destroyed dreams. But, with last week’s news of a sale, perhaps it’s also one that contains the seeds of a rebirth, especially after  Robbie Stockdale rang the changes and youth delivered against worthy champions. For a change, Pete Sixsmith’s […]

Sixer’s Fulham Sevens: A harsh decision costs us (and Cardiff City?)

Jake

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith  was not present today. Neither was I,  although I had put this on on my list. And nor did I manage to get to a pub for the start and missed the first 40 minutes and hence our goal, but not the equaliser that came from the recovery after the […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Hell, Bent on relegation as Burton come back

Jake

You could see it coming, couldn’t you. Darren Bent comes on with 15 minutes left and equalises with two minutes to go. Then in injury time they score a second from another cross. Which just goes to show that what we’ve been saying all season – indeed, for a few seasons, is correct: You can create […]

Sixer’s Sevens from Reading: all over bar the shouting

Jake

As this miserable season limps inexorably to its end, Pete Sixsmith (whose seven word verdict usually sums up every Sunderland performance) elected to give the long trip to Reading a miss and so today it falls to a super sub to come up with our immediate succinct post match summary. The first half was a […]

Sixer’s Sevens – Norwich City: as Sunderland let the lifeline slip

Jake: 'Sixer (or his sub) does it in seven words, no more, no less - unless he miscounts'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..things are so bad at the moment for Sunderland supporters that here at Salut! Sunderland M Salut has gone en vacances sur la plage and John Mac is as we speak, jetting away de vacaciones en la playa, leaving me to update the site from a wet and dreary Weardale and Peter Sixsmith, […]

Sixer’s Sevens – Leeds United: close but no cigar

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Unless Radio Newcastle had their effects microphone turned up extra loud today the Sunderland fans at Elland Road were in fine form. The Barnes and Bennett commentary conveyed a pleasing performance from the Lads, who it sounds as if dominated the game for long periods. But at one goal ahead the expectation this season is […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Awful Defending Gives Sheffield Wednesday the Game

Jake

You might notice the headline has seven words. You might think Pete Sixsmith sent them. You would be wrong. Pete’s own seven words, sent immediately post match, convey pretty much the same sentiment, only more emphatically, and they spell out the implications for Sunderland rather than for Sheffield Wednesday: (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Singing in the Rain as Depression hits Derby.

Jake

John McCormick writes: I watched the opening game of the season at a pub in the Lakes and thought we did OK. I watched this at home, courtesy of Will’s Sky-linked tablet. As the match opened I thought we didn’t look as good as we did in August and that Derby were well organised, which […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Preston benefit from this week’s press of the self-destruct button

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: The darkness began to descend early in the second half at the Stadium of Light, and that was before Jake Clarke-Salter got himself sent off for the second time in an hour of playing. Pete Sixsmith sat through the debacle and his match report will let us know how bad it got.  […]
