The Burton Albion Who are You? ‘Pieman’s highlight of the season – losing 9-0 at Man City!’

Jake: 'Pieman reckons the Brewers will have us weeping in our beer'

Monsieur Salut writes: Burton Albion are a club with lots of virtues but the size of the fanbase is not among them, unless small is beautiful. Finding a Who are You? interview volunteer who isn’t the one we had before, and also the one before that, is not easy. Hence, our latest cap-in-hand approach to […]

Sunderland vs Burton Albion Guess the Score: a night to go second?

Guess the score

Towards the end of last season, not quite a year ago so not at the very end, Burton Albion visited the Stadium of Light, won 2-1 and sent Sunderland down for the second successive season. The fact that most of us were already resigned to relegation made it little easier to stomach and the Netflix […]

Monsieur Salut writes: we had to bounce back from Wembley and we did, in some style as you’ll know if you were there or have read Pete Sixmsith’s rousing account of our 3-0 win. Now another Lancashire test awaits. We need to do something similar at Rochdale on Saturday. Over to Ian Wright*, our Dale […]

Job done at Accrington Stanley and our old friend Eric Bower won Guess the Score, correctly going for a 3-0 win to get us swiftly over any Wembley blues, or Blues for that matter. (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Accrington Stanley don’t bog us down after Portsmouth

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: put yourself in my place. 0-2 up away from home, with 15 minutes left. If Accrington score and we win 2-1 your “guess the score” is correct and you win a shirt. Do you want Accy to score? It took me less than a minute. “sod it” I thought “get a third” […]

The Accrington Stanley Guess the Score: now for the bigger prize

Jake: 'guess the score - just for fun. Click my banner'

It is obvious enough. Time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and put together the run we need to overtake Barnsley and leave Portsmouth and Charlton behind, says Monsieur Salut. Of course Sunday was a great occasion and a game we all wanted to win. But promotion is – for me – by far […]

Accrington Stanley-Sunderland Who are You? ‘Get over Pompey, win those games in hand’

Accrington A

Monsieur Salut says: Ian Reynolds-Young* was there for the washed-out first attempt to play this match. He missed Accrington Stanley’s impressive visit to the Stadium of Light but will be there again on Saturday. I hope he is right to think we will win 2-0. Ian is the editor of the Offical Accrington Stanley Supporters’ […]

A Wembley a Day. When Man City did what Man United couldn’t

John McCormick writes: should I be surprised or not that Lee Cattermole is the only survivor of our last trip to Wembley? After all, it was five years – or six managers, not including two caretakers – ago? We fans are much more constant aren’t we, which brings me to Pete Sixsmith, who before he […]

Another international break brings an opportunity to revisit the six clubs our readers* and the Coventry ninjas**  chose way back in the summer, and I’ve added Doncaster and Luton Town, who thoroughly merit more than a mention. I last visited this series at the end of January, when I had this to say: “… before […]

Sixer’s Sub’s Soapbox: Walsall can’t hold on as Sunderland close the gap

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith reported windy weather before trotting off to the SOL yesterday and Walsall duly put the wind up Sunderland, who produced yet another shaky start. It turned out well enough in the end, with four of the top six drawing and the seventh-placed club losing, to once more put us in control of our […]
