Sixer’s Scunthorpe Soapbox: Sunderland fail to flatter as Iron pressure pays

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes………tied up as I am in a hotel in Lytham St Anne’s (and before you get any ideas – not literally tied up – it’s not that sort of hotel!) with no commentary to listen to I was reduced to using a combination of the club website and the BBC’s for text updates […]

Sixer’s Scunthorpe Sevens: a good point but we need to find that poacher

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

What do you make of a draw at Scunny? A point gained or two thrown away? Luton open a gap, Barnsley close one and Portsmouth falter, so it’s a bit mixed. On the whole, against a very in-form side I’m inclined to be optimistic but I wasn’t there. Pete Sixsmith, who was, will give us […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Scunthorpe United and Glanford Park

Salut Banner5(featured image)

It’s over 100 years since E M Forster wrote “The Machine Stops”. If you haven’t read it I suggest you give it a go. After you have you won’t worry too much about the slight delay to the publication of this post in Pete Sixsmith’s “First Time ” series. You might, however, worry about the […]

View from the Avenue: a Sunderland rallying cry to still half-term wobbles

Jake: 'Click the image to reach Salut! Sunderland's home page'

Monsieur Salut says: Paul Summerside and I joust regularly at Facebook about Brexit, a subject I broadly feel wisest to avoid at Salut! Sunderland.

Monsieur Salut writes: Ian Moore* came our way thanks to Matt Blanchard from the Scunthorpe Iron-Bru fan site and podcast (Matt answered our questions in superb style before the first game, which Sunderland won 3-0).

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sunderland 1 Luton 1. Mazdas but no Maja

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcom Dawson wrote this introduction wthout seeing Pete Sixsmith’s match report: Lee Probert’s performance will undoubtedly dominate the headlines and let’s face it he was shocking. Consistent but shockingly consistent. Even before the penalty and the sendings off he was subjected to chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” and “you’re not fit to […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland rue lack of killer finish as Luton are gifted a penalty

Jake

SAFC made a return to the Stadium of Light, Pete Sixsmith made a return to the Stadum of Light and Mick Harford made return to Sunderland while Josh Maja didn’t, because he was sick, we’re told.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Luton Town

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes, I’m  not sure whether or not I ever saw Luton during the sixties. Pete Sixsmith didn’t, so I doubt that I did.  I might have seen them in the game below but it’s unlikely as I was in my first year away and didn’t go back that often. I did go back […]
