Sixer’s Sevens: blushes avoided as Watmore, McNulty and Grigg edge SAFC past Grimsby Town

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Was it inevitable that despite sacking Jack Ross, Sunderland still contrived to go behind to opposition they should be walloping? What happened to No Manager Bounce? Well, it bounced. The same resilience we showed on better days under Ross surfaced and goals from Watmore – welcome back – and McNulty put us ahead. There wasn’t […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Lincoln 2 Sunderland 0, Sixsmith 4

Jake

At 3,12pm the BBC reported Chris Maguire had been sent off. In the absence of any confirmation from Pete Sixsmith I went looking elsewhere and found a site that gave the score at 2-0. It was quickly corrected to 1-0, something Pete did confirm. How many League games since we prevented our opponents from scoring? […]

Sixer’s MK Dons Sevens: a flying start but nervy 2-1 win

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith greatly enjoyed his midweek trip to Bramall Lane, a winning display on the field enhanced by a feelgood, relatively sober atmosphere among our travelling fans. And so back to the mundane but – surely for us – more important world of League One. Sixer was there with our associate editor […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Bolton Wanderers and grand larceny of the highest order

Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes: However you look at it, this was a poor day in Lancashire. Gary Bennett was not happy. The crowd was not happy and Pete Sixsmith was not happy. His series of texts throughout the game read…”a dismal first half, support not happy and unlikely to change”, then after Wyke came on for […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Rotherham earn a point as Sunderland miss a penalty.

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

It was almost half-time when I realised Pete Sixsmith had not checked in from the Stadium of Light. That’s almost as surprising as a penalty miss at home, or not conceding in the first 45 minutes. Checks with Malcolm and Colin revealed all was well; Malcolm suggested “nervy finish after 20 minutes of dominance” for […]

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. […]
