The Lars Word: six things Big Sam has brought to Sunderland

Lars Knutsen - Wearside through and through

Malcolm Dawson writes…….Lars Knutsen might sound as if he was brought up on gravadlax and smorgasbord but with his East Boldon roots he is more of a corned beef and potato pie or stotty cake kind of guy. Having said that he now spends time working in the US but will soon be back in […]

Who will start against Arsenal? Decisions to be made

Our thanks to the members of SAFC NASA
for the pre-season updates

A few managers ago, perhaps even as far back as last year, I got quite good at guessing the team. Maybe, you might think, it was because there were few good players to pick then. However, that’s not necessarily the case. (more…)

SA’s essay: Sam’s Happy, we’re happy. Out of the bottom three

John McCormick writes: Ed posted on facebook that he was dressed for winter before he headed off for his normal berth in the North Stand. Why shouldn’t he feel the cold, given that there has been a chill wind blowing for so long that I can feel it as far south as Liverpool. But after […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2 Stoke City 0. Thrilling PVA and Watmore clinchers

Monsieur Salut writes: we’ve been as critical as any others of Patrick van Aanholt this season. So let’s hear it for him after his second fine game in six days was capped by a matchwinning performance. His superb strike put us ahead and then, to Pete Sixmsith‘s delight, Duncan Watmore’s enthusiasm and appetite was rewarded […]

Sixer’s Southampton Soapbox: no fireworks, just another damp squib

sixer says(stripes)

Malcolm Dawson writes…..the forecast wasn’t good for those who had delayed their Guy Fawkes night celebrations. In fact it had rained so heavily overnight that the Northern League fixture list was almost wiped out. What a shame that the surface at the SoL drains well enough to allow games such as this to go ahead. […]

SA’s Essay: Sam’s point – it’s only a point dropped v Southampton!

Jake: 'can anybody see any light at the end of this tunnel?'

Malcolm Dawson writes….an old familiar feeling returned today as I took my seat and saw Sam’s team selection. When I saw a starting eleven with Gomez, Johnson, and Watmore in the middle and Fletcher on his own up front I knew what to expect. A team that would sit deep, trying to defend a nil […]

SAFC 3 Man City 0: Under 21s show how it’s done.

Catch

Malcolm Dawson was about 6 when he went to his first ever live football match. He doesn’t remember much about it except that the home team was Eppleton Colliery Welfare and they played in light blue with two maroon bands – like the old West Ham change strip of the sixties. Following the disappointment of […]

Dick’s Exeter Advochaat: six goals good – three goals bad

Jake: 'gorging on goals'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..we would all have been happier with 3-0. Dick too by the sound of it in his post match e-mail to M Salut and the rest. A three goal margin sounds comfortable and in the end it was – but not before the defensive collywobbles took hold. The rest of the Premier League […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: on song Canaries leave pathetic Cats for dead

Jake: 'path ...et...and, indeed, ic'

Malcolm Dawson writes…I have seen some dire Sunderland performances in my time but I can’t think of any previous season when I sat thinking I had wasted my money on a season ticket after half an hour of the first home game. Last week after thirty minutes we were three down. Yesterday we were only […]

Mandron, Watmore, Beadling sink West Ham Under 21s. Contenders for the Boleyn?

sixer says(stripes)

When there’s proper football to be had in the flesh, Pete Sixsmith isn’t likely to stay in to watch Man Utd vs Arsenal on the box, with United fans incensed at Michael Oliver’s application of relatively simple laws of the game. He took himself off to Hetton to see Sunderland’s Under 21s in winning action. […]
