The Chapman Report from Ipswich: Maguire makes a difference

Bob Chapman: less than impressed

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 […]

Sixers Sevens: Gooch rescues a point at Ipswich

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….with Pete otherwise engaged today Bob Chapman was our man at Portman Road. Do people still do the pools? If they do then no guessing which team’s fixture should be marked with an X on Littlewoods or Vernons.  We went behind. No surprise there then. We equalised. Not unusual either. I don’t suppose […]

Sixer’s sub’s Soapboax: Crystal Palace – plenty of possession but not much of a threat

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: When Alfie N’Diaye pops up with a goal for your relegation competitors you know the Gods of football can’t be happy with you. What, then, must they feel towards Sam Allardyce? Not that anyone’s complaining, of course, apart from perhaps a few of the fans who left Selhurst Park early after our own midfield did […]

The Chapman Report from West Bromwich Albion: another new boss’s losing start

Jake's view of the subs' bench

Once again, Bob Chapman stepped into Pete Sixsmith’s boots for the visit to WBA. And once again he provides an incisive assessment of what he witnessed, with an interesting having-it-both-way assessment of the one big controversy of the game … Here is a Salut Sunderland quiz question. This report is the fourth in a sequence […]

SA’s Essay: enter Salut!Sunderland’s post West Brom spot the difference competition

Jake: 'oh Pants!'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I went to Esh Winning today where I saw Julio Arca score a peach of a free kick for South Shields’ fourth in an easy victory for the Tyneside club. My MP4 player was tuned to Radio Newcastle where the first half summary sounded good. For some reason I jinxed things by tuning […]

Chapman Reports from Aston Villa as Sixer acclaims Lizzie Jones at Wembley

Bob Chapman seems to have had the sort of awayday Monsieur Salut most enjoys (except when there’s the cherry on the cake of a win to make it even better): pre-match pints with John Marshall and the Woods brothers, Mick and Gerard, followed by Sunderland goals to cheer and at least the avoidance of defeat […]

The Chapman Report from Chelsea: summer relief for the well-travelled SAFC fan

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Bob Chapman brings down the curtain on what we hope has been another season of fine, incisive reporting from each Sunderland game, the best of it combining analysis, observation and humour (the latter quality is remarkable, given the feelings of dejection that all too often haunt the Sunderland supporter’s life). Pete Sixsmith has explained his […]

The ‘still optimistic’ Chapman Report from Stoke: Messi no match for this

Our customary big turnout. Courtesy of @theawayfans

Pete Sixmsith once again steps down from the Soapbox to make way for Bob Chapman, whose pre-match pint was taken with a man who’d willingly forked out £30 for Stoke versus Sunderland after baulking at nearly six times more for a Barcelona game a few days earlier. Bob considered it a decent point even if […]

The Chapman Report from West Ham: disappointing finale but no one ‘walked’

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

There seems consensus that Sunderland showed vast improvement at West Ham – they could hardly have been worse than a week before – but that the crowd saw two fairly poor teams, neither truly deserving to lose or, for that matter, win. Bob Chapman‘s ascent of Sixer’s Soapbox was a little more painful than usual […]

Chapman Report: picking up points on the A1, not at Manchester United

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Colin Randall writes: I’m never sure whether to elevate Bob Chapman to Robert for these post-match essays in Sixer’s place. I always greet him as Bob at matches, but maybe it should be different for Chapman Reports. Robert or Bob, he once again steps boldly into Mr Sixsmith’s shoes to tell us how it really […]
