Click the banner to guess the score

An interesting dilemma faces Jack Ross ahead of Peterborough away. He made eight changes for the Carabao Cup visit to Burnley and watched in admiration as the team came from behind to secure a marvellous 3-1 win and a third round trip to another Premier League side, Sheffield United. There were excellent individual performances – […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland keep the momentum going against AFC Wimbledon

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: yesterday Pete Sixsmith’s piece raised plenty of questions about ownership and investment. Underlying them was the question of whether or not we’d go up this season. Have we developed the ruthless killer-off streak that was missing last year? Charlie Wyke’s form suggests we might have but two games don’t make a season. […]

Sunderland vs Wimbledon. Can we win this one in style?

Guess the score

If you followed the game one way or the other, or saw Pete Sixsmith’s splendid match report here, you’ll know we gained three massive points at Rochdale without covering ourselves in glory. Perhaps we should take comfort in the fact that successful teams have always had a knack of grinding out or snatching results when […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Rochdale don’t make it easy but Sunderland get there


John McCormick writes: I should have been there today but life got in the way, as it so often does. Instead, because I’m too superstitious to subscribe to Ifollow I’m making do with updates on various websites and awaiting mid-game texts from Pete Sixsmith (Rochdale very effective, we are less so came at half time) […]

Rochdale vs Sunderland: aiming to make it three wins in three

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

The most important point to be made about tomorrow night’s game at the Spotland Stadium is that we must aim to remain unbeaten. But a draw would be a disappointment. Sunderland really need to maintain the momentum, indeed the winning feeling, after a comfortable league cup visit to Accrington Stanley and a gritty home victory […]

John McCormick writes: Let’s not quibble. We were not good. However, we had enough character to come back from a poor goal against a team that will feature at the end of the season and that must bode well,  for morale as much as for League position. Such wins are not to be sniffed at […]

Click Jake's image to enter

Football fans are not known especially for their powers of measured reflection, that ability to take a realistic view rather than jump in at the first opportunity with both feet raised. Or so says Monsieur Salut. Accordingly, the Ross Out chorus has begun. We’ve played all of one game. There are 45 to go in […]

Ipswich fans. Your chance to tell us all about yourselves – and Sunderland

Click the banner to find all the Who are You? entries this season

A couple of responses from Oxford fans ahead of Sunderland’s opening game hardly counts as a storming start to the labour-saving device of inviting opposing fans to send their thoughts on forthcoming matches between our clubs. But let’s persevere, says Monsieur Salut. We’ve had good Ipswich Town Q+A interviews in the past and must hope […]

John McCormick writes: I was surprised at that line-up and wonder how much it had to do with match fitness. Whatever the reason, the performance in the first half will have given Jack Ross some food for thought. Still, a point is better than nowt, as my granny never said. But myself, Pete Sixsmith, who […]
