The Chapman Report from Peterborough: alarm bells or just a wake up call?

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Malcolm Dawson writes…..with Pete Sixsmith having set himself a southern limit of Lincoln City for away days this season, Bob Chapman steps off the subs’ bench for his take on yesterday’s events. His full time 7 word summary said not a single positive from this shocker.  I have to say I thought we started the […]

The Chapman Report from Ipswich: Maguire makes a difference

Bob Chapman: not a happy bunny at London Road

Malcolm Dawson writes………..Pete Sixsmith is cutting down on his travelling to away games this season and e-mailed this afternoon to say that he is becoming increasingly disillusioned with SAFC and the game in general. He’ll still be back on his soapbox after our Carabao Cup tie at Accrington on Tuesday, but gave yesterday’s long trip […]

The Chapman Report from Walsall: “That second goal never looked like coming”

Bob Chapman: not a happy bunny at London Road

Malcolm Dawson writes……..I experienced a touch of deja vu on the trip to the Bescot Stadium yesterday. I drove into Walsall the same way, parked in the same street and saw the same discarded cardboard boxes and other assorted bits of rubbish on the short walk to the ground that I had seen last weekend. […]

The Chapman Report: Fulham get the breaks as we play for pride

Salut Banner3(featured image)

As you know, Pete Sixsmith didn’t make this game. That’s not a problem, however, as Bob Chapman made the trip and once again steps into the breech with a fine account of what would have been a very decent day in London, had there been a very decent referee at Craven Cottage. (more…)

The Chapman Report from QPR: Out Demons Out deserves a Sunderland verse

Jake: 'don't put us through hoops, Lads'

A harsh reader would say Bob Chapman brings it on himself. A drive up from the Home Counties for the Villa game weould have been enough to put off most people but four days later, he was enduring more dross from the worst Sunderland team he has seen in 54 years of following the club […]

The Chapman Report from Millwall. Full steam ahead but bound for the sidings

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

If Bob Chapman, eternal optimist and home-and-away stalwart, is resigned to relegation, then we must be in the deepest of trouble. At least his day out produced this little gem of a report on a day that promises to be busy, if not congested, as we tie up Millwall loose ends and prepare for the […]

The Chapman Report from Birmingham: where’s a Johnny Giles when he’s needed?

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Monsieur Salut writes: what was the transfer window like for you, Chris? Did you recruit an inspiring mix of flair and solid experience, the sort needed to get Sunderland out of the present mess? Or a bunch of journeymen hardly better than what we already have and available at the bottom end of the market […]

Sixer’s sub’s soapbox: Grounds for pessimism after Cardiff

Salut Banner4(featured image)

Pete Sixsmith didn’t quite take the day off but the trip he made was a short one, only over the border to the next county. It was Bob Chapman who crossed the border into another country. Meanwhile, Sunderland appear to have only one place to go. Here’s Bob’s report. (more…)

The Chapman Report from Wolves: ‘my game of the season so far’

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Bob Chapman is always a great stand-in for Pete Sixsmith, a home and away stalwart who lives so far south that even a home game means a trek. Wolbverhampton wasn’t next door but neither was it anything like as far. And Bob was rewarded by a display of outstanding commitment (and a decent day out […]

Sixer’s Sub’s Soapbox: Bob Chapman reports from Brentford FC

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: It’s a team effort, here at Salut! Pete Sixmith was engaged with a non-League fixture so Bob Chapman stepped in with his seven word summary, which was sent to Malcolm, who used it to finalise the draft I’d prepared. And now M Salut himself has forwarded Bob’s post-match report. For me, it carries […]
