Rambling through Accrington, Coventry and Ipswich to Lincoln. How do Sunderland’s rivals shape up financially?

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

League One comprises 24 clubs. Three of them, Bury, Bolton and Blackpool, are entering, exiting or plodging in the clarts of receivership. Leaving them and Sunderland aside gives us twenty clubs. I thought I’d take a look at their finances. Nothing detailed, just a skim through any entries at Companies House and a quick perusal […]

Sunderland’s retained list: Who’s yet to take a walk? Who’s yet to arrive at our doors?

Salut Banner4(featured image)

We know there’s a lot of rebuilding to do. We know we have some expensive players on our books who we really can’t afford. And we know we have some talent we want to keep. So there’s a balancing act to do, and our retained list is just the start. Some of these players won’t […]

Sixer’s playoff Seven: Lads hold out for second trip to Wembley

Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes…….at half time Pete Sixsmith’s text was less than complimentary about our opponents who he feels reflect the attitude and personality of their manager. Watching on TV there were some obvious examples of what some might call acceptable gamesmanship and others underhand. But with a 1-0 lead at the three quarter mark I […]

Sixer’s Peterborough sevens. Bitterly disappointing

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Is there another twist to come? With only two or three games left time is not on our side, and nor are the fixtures.  We  might yet do it, and at the very least we have the playoffs, so all is not yet lost, but… …which means this away draw, against a tough team, is […]

Peterborough United vs Sunderland: the stakes are high

Guess the score

We did what was necessary against Doncaster Rovers. We are still masters of our own destiny. But that could change if we falter against Posh. With so few games left, there is no further leeway. The results of others have to be matched. If they are, we go up automatically, without the ordeal of playoffs. […]

Sixer’s Sevens: a good day for Sunderland at Rochdale, Burton and Luton

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: do games get much closer than this? To come from 1-0 down to win 2-1 away, with a last minute goal from a captain who came on as a sub. And this on a day when Barnsley lost and Luton only managed a draw at home. And, if my maths is correct […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Rochdale and Spotland

Salut Banner4(featured image)

John McCormick writes: My mam worked in a munitions factory during the war, so I suppose she was – “the girl who makes the thing that holds the oil that oils the ring that works the thing-ummy-bob that’s going to win the war.” You might ask why I’m telling you this. It’s because  Pete Sixsmith resumes […]

Sixer’s Barnsley Soapbox: a good opportunity lost?

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: Games like this have to be taken in context. Lose and we can forget about automatic promotion. Win and we’re back in control of our own destiny. But draw? It means we’re still reliant on other teams dropping points (while Luton widen the gap) but it doesn’t mean we’re out of the […]

John McCormick writes: A joint effort brings this to you on a fine morning. Fine not because of the weather, which is a bit iffy, but because we have just won our third in a row and have a semi-final in a couple of days. Malcolm did the proof-reading and uploaded the text, leaving the […]
