Sixer’s Sevens: Grigg strike eases patchy Sunderland past Walsall for three mighty points

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Back home, after a long time on the road, with a depleted squad and a serious need to keep in touch with the top two, which suddenly looked doable once again, especially after Gillingham twice equalised against Luton, Pete Sixsmith wearily texted the early Walsall goal to absent friends. Then Cattermole smashed in an equaliser […]

  Monsieur Salut writes: we heard a little from Darren Fellows* after the first of our earlier games against his club, Walsall. This time, his answers arrived as both of us nervously awaited Tuesday night’s fixtures. We managed a draw at Barnsley, a result that was good in isolation but left us still chasing the […]

Sixer’s Barnsley Sevens: a good Sunderland point on a bad night.

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Is anyone complaining about SAFC not scoring? Is anyone complaining about another draw? I’m not and nor is Pete Sixsmith, who was once more on the road. We’ll have to return tomorrow to get his considered view in the full match report, but the seven-word text he sent immediately on the whistle echoes what many of […]

Sunderland vs Walsall prize Guess the Score. Playing catch-up on Luton and Barnsley

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Monsieur Salut says: we will go early with Guess the Score for this Saturday. Pete Sixsmith’s Soapbox from Barnsley will not be with us until later in the day and we also need to check whether our headlines are being ‘grabbed’ by the newsnow.co.uk aggregator (Sixer’s Sevens seems to have avoided their radar last night) […]

Barnsley Who are You?: the Sunderland star who’s too good even for this match of the season

McGeady

    Monsieur Salut writes: as has happened all too often, the results on Saturday showed a win for Barnsley, a draw for us. But Tuesday remains an all-important step in our attempt to climb back to the Championship. Those of us who worry about our inability to dominate lesser sides cry out for evidence that we […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

As befits a man returning from the county of Buckinghamshire, wot is down south, Pete Sixsmith, imbued with culture, has written a masterly account of a divided nation, of skulduggery and of a last minute reprieve. Those of you who, in the Bard’s words “lack  the stomach for this fight” are advised to turn your […]

Ross and McGeady: deserving Sunderland winners

Sunderland_2777w (1)

We do plenty for each other, SAFC and Salut! Sunderland, so no one will mind if we simply record the EFL League One Player/Manager of the Month awards – both going our way – by reference to the official club site. Jack Ross said the award to Aiden McGeady was a ‘no brainer’ and few […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Wycombe Wanderers and Adams Park

Jake: 'must be the kind fo game we have to win'

  John McCormick writes: Before Pete Sixsmith sent his material I spent some time perusing Youtube for clips of Wycombe Wanderers. None I found were really suitable for inclusion. After it arrived I looked for the 2005 game against West Ham. Again, no luck. Eventually I found a clip to enhance another fine piece of […]

There is no Wycombe Wanderers-Sunderland Who are You? Here’s one we prepared earlier

Monsieur Salut writes: we tried very hard to find a Wycombe Wanderers supporter to talk about his or her club and ours ahead of Saturday’s game. We failed. Jon Dickinson*, our interviewee ahead of the first game, also tried to find a pal who might be up for it. He wasn’t successful either. Sorry folks. […]

John McCormick writes: I thought we never looked like losing, and I like the way this club is shaping up for the end of the season. That doesn’t mean anything’s done and dusted yet, but as Pete Sixsmith’s post game seven word text makes clear, we have at least one pleasant diversion  to look forward […]
