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 […]

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.

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.

Sixer’s Portsmouth Soapbox: play offs Pompey, Pompey play offs – and us

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……whilst not mathematically denying us one of the two automatic promotion spots, yesterday’s result finally extinguished any realistic hope of avoiding the lottery that is the play-offs.
