Sixer’s Sevens: Everton 2-0 Sunderland. That sinking feeling

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes:  At half time, Sunderland having defended reasonably well without offering a threat to the Everton goal, went behind when Fabio Borini failed to track back and a swift move down the right ended up with the ball in the back of the net. Pete Sixsmith, suffering at Goodison, felt there was ‘no […]

Everton Who are You?: ‘SAFC have all our injury-prone old players!’

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

Graeme Holmes* is an Everton season ticket holder whose globetrotting, groundhopping activities make our own Pete Sixsmith seem like an armchair supporter. He’s at a match as a neutral most nights to add to those huge number of Everton games he’s seen over the past 38 years. He has obviously come across Sixer on his […]

Everton vs Sunderland Guess the Score: can Moyes’s Goodison old boys shine?

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

Monsieur Salut interrupts the usual business of trying to get heating, hot water, internet and the rest working again in France to announce the return of Guess the Score after the recent, perhaps merciful break from premier League action. No Anichebe, sadly, but if Oviedo, Gibson, Pienaar and Rodwell are available, David Moyes’s faith in […]

Blackpool, Bolton, Blackburn and even Morecambe. Is there a warning for us?

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

John McCormick writes: I was thinking of updating our “Relegation watch” this weekend, seeing as there’s no football on, but with a couple of days to go before the transfer window shuts it feels like it’s too early to complete the “before and after” picture. I could have given you my view of Deloitte’s Money Football League but in […]

FA Cup Third Round: five good, five bad. Everton, Notts County make both lists

Bobby Kerr and the FA Cup, May 5 1973

… in which Pete Sixsmith looks back on the good, bad and exceedingly ugly FA Cup 3rd Round ties he remembers with affection or disgust … Excitement levels among Sunderland supporters, it has to be said, have not been high over the impending FA Cup tie with Burnley. I have my ticket due to the […]

Pickford and Kone: must-keeps or let-goes to Everton, West Ham, elsewhere?

or KANT BE BOTHERED?

Not the player of last season anyway.

Monsieur Salut says: the international break makes me twitchy. No serious interest in the football, lots of time to worry about Sunderland. So let’s have a poll … Are we, then, resigned to Jordan Pickford becoming another Jordan Henderson, red-and-white through and through but grasping, understandably, at opportunities higher up the footballing ladder than where […]

There’s only one Bradley Lowery. Here’s how Sunderland fans can help

Bradley

Anyone who watched the otherwise one-to-forget Everton match on the TV, and plenty of those inside the stadium, will have had their hearts warmed by the sight of little Bradley Lowery, the SAFC mascot for the game. Bradley is fighting a form of cancer called neuroblastoma and needs costly treatment in the USA. A good […]

Sixer’s Everton Soapbox: an abysmal second half, a rude awakening

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

  John McCormick writes: Jake sent a message with the graphic for this page. It began “As soon as I read that Lukaku hadn’t scored for six months my heart sank.” When I heard the commentators on Sky saying pretty much the same I had similar feelings. You just knew he would score. But for the […]

Moyes on the boys v Everton: “…I’m most disappointed with….”

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I hate Monday games. I always have. I never expect us to do well in any televised game but I have the worst forebodings on Mondays. So it came as no surprise to me that we got nothing today. But the nature of that nothing – that wasn’t something I expected. I […]

Sixer’s Everton Sevens: Torn apart by Lukaku

Jake

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half time: “Competed well against a strong Everton team”, which I thought was a pretty fair description of the game up to then. His second text was also a pretty fair description. You’ll find it below, where it conveys a message that doesn’t bode well for Spurs: (more…)
