Sixer’s Accrington Stanley Soapbox:Wham! Bam! Thank you Stan!

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……what a contrast between yesterday and my previous visit to The Wham Stadium. Less than twelve months ago I got absolutely drenched as we watched the Lads playing for 70 odd minutes in a mud bath before the game was eventually called off. What’s more my car had collected a slow puncture which […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……I was trying to decide whether take the car and go to see our U23s in action in Durham last night or walk up to the local for the Wednesday pub quiz, when I decided that I needed to escape the ever pervading smell of some pan fried mackerel I’d had in an […]

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith cannot believe his luck. Another trip to Lancashire and another Sunderland win, this one the most impressive of all results this season as it was against Premier League opposition. Sixer thoroughly enjoyed his evening at Turf Moor and you probably won’t find a better account of a splendid win .. Massive respect to […]

Sixer’s Wimbledon Soapbox: mama told me there’d be days like this

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……….for the owners of a EFL football club hoping to persuade a consortium of hyper rich American businessmen to invest in its future, then yesterday could hardly have gone any better at the Stadium of Light.

Sixer’s Rochdale Soapbox: pints and points on the wet side of the Pennines

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..make no mistake. This was no walk in the park and Rochdale made us work hard for the three points. If I was a ‘Dale supporter I’d have been disappointed going home last night. The home side were organised, kept the ball well and moved it purposefully. They were a constant threat and […]

Sixer’s Accrington Stanley Soapbox: You’ve got to eliminate the negative

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……like a lot of us Pete Sixsmith was underwhelmed by our performance against Oxford and after the Ipswich game he e-mailed me to say that he was becoming disillusioned with SAFC and the game in general. It’s a phase many of us have been through and while I was disappointed by yet another […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: For some reason the newsfeeds that pick up Salut! posts didn’t pick up the original of this one. There may be technical solutions involving spiders, RSS feeds and index urls but we’re taking a shortcut by reposting this article under another title. This will help ensure that Pete’s prose gets the readership […]

Wembley Soapbox: another Sunderland-Charlton letdown. ‘Why do I do all this?’

Pete Sixsmith with his (and my) great pal Pete Horan;s elder daughter Clare

Monsieur Salut writes: it wasn’t in truth so different from what many of us expected. If you’re not sufficiently older than 46 to have seen our last win at Wembley, as opposed to being a babe in someone’s arms, losing comes naturally. This was awful. We didn’t even huff and puff very much. Gifted a goal, […]

Sixer’s Portsmouth Soapbox: dogged, determined and disciplined as the Lads get to Wembley

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……I said after the Southend game that I actually thought finishing 5th wasn’t such a bad thing, as I felt we stood a better chance of beating Portsmouth over two legs than Charlton, and that a one off game at Wembley against Charlton was preferable to another meeting with Portsmouth at the National […]
