Sixer’s Scunthorpe Sevens. Sunderland ironed flat

Jake

Pete Sixsmith sent a bonfire night seven word text concerning the probability that we wouldn’t be making a trip to Wembley in the EFL Trophy.  Tonight’s match provided an opportunity to keep the flame alive. Pete was watching  Spennymoor beat Boston  so I coined a seven-word text of my own not long after  Luke O’Nien […]

Sixer’s Sevens v Leicester U21: no fireworks, just lots of damp squibs

Jake

John McCormick writes: Readers still cannot post comments. We are continuing to work on it but everything I have tried and suggested to date has failed. Some might say that’s pretty much the story at the Stadium of Light, although we did manage a clean sheet in the League last weekend. Malcolm and Pete bore […]

Malcolm Dawson writes…….As I was tucking into my porridge and blueberries this morning, I received an e-mail from Pete Sixsmith with the title “Parkinson” so assumed that the club had confirmed we had a new manager in place. I then went to the News Now webpage to find these headlines: 10:06  SAFC Official website: SAFC […]

Sixer’s Sevens: blushes avoided as Watmore, McNulty and Grigg edge SAFC past Grimsby Town

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Was it inevitable that despite sacking Jack Ross, Sunderland still contrived to go behind to opposition they should be walloping? What happened to No Manager Bounce? Well, it bounced. The same resilience we showed on better days under Ross surfaced and goals from Watmore – welcome back – and McNulty put us ahead. There wasn’t […]

Should’ve, Could’ve, Might’ve: Sunderland v Rotherham from sublime to ridiculous

View From The West Stand (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..others I know will not share my opinions, but as I’ve got older I believe I have developed a healthy attitude to life and an ability to put into perspective things which seem to send others into paroxysms of rage.

Sixer’s Accrington Stanley Soapbox:Wham! Bam! Thank you Stan!

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……what a contrast between yesterday and my previous visit to The Wham Stadium. Less than twelve months ago I got absolutely drenched as we watched the Lads playing for 70 odd minutes in a mud bath before the game was eventually called off. What’s more my car had collected a slow puncture which […]

Malcolm Dawson writes……..In a week in which a young bride excitedly looking forward to her honeymoon, wakes to find she is a widow and a family man is stabbed to death with a screwdriver in a busy shopping centre, apparently trying to stop an altercation, I find it difficult to put any real significance on […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Aston Villa and Villa Park

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I suspected this would be one of the grounds that Pete Sixsmith counts among his favourites. After all, not only  is it old and venerable, like the man himself,  with international matches and semi-finals galore on its cv, it has the Archibald Leitch connection that he relishes. And there’s a bonus for […]
