SA’s post Watford Essay: looking forward

Malcolm Dawson writes…today was an opportunity to look at a few of the development squad and they acquitted themselves well. Of the others who came into this game Jack Rodwell, Jeremaine Lens and Seb Larsson still have contracts in place whilst Dame N’Doye and DeAndre Yedlin presumably go back to their parent clubs this summer […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: wishing Leicester well – looking forward to Burton

Malcolm Dawson writes….I spent the first weekend of the season staying at my mate’s house in Nottinghamshire. He is a lifelong Leicester fan and back then he enjoyed informing all the Forest and County supporters at the Sunday night quiz in his local, that the Foxes were top of the Premier League. He never expected […]

Sixer’s Newcastle United Soapbox: we let this one slip – again!

NEWsoapbox(Without Score)

Malcolm Dawson writes………the fact that those supporters in black and white were euphoric at the end, whilst those in red and white (or their free green) appeared dejected said it all really. Both sides picked up a point in the chase to catch Norwich but while we saw it as two points dropped, they celebrated […]

Sixer’s Crystal Palace Soapbox: something lost or something gained?

Malcolm Dawson writes….I have this view, which I trot out from time to time, that it’s far better to see your team concede in the opening minutes, be completely outplayed for the rest of the game then equalise just before the final whistle, than be a supporter of the other side. While one set of […]

SA’s Essay: missing the point at West Ham

John McCormick writes: At half time some stats came up saying West Ham had 80 per cent passing accuracy and we had 55 per cent. Some of the responsibility for that must lie with Lee Cattermole, whose distribution in the first half was atrocious. I’d have taken him off earlier and I’d start Rodwell on Tuesday. […]

Sixer’s Man Utd Soapbox: new boys show their class

Malcolm Dawson writes……….before the game they were showing highlights of the 6-0 win over West Ham in 1977 on the big screen. The two lads who sit next to me, both under 20, commented that they weren’t even born when that game was played. Cue a history lesson as I told them how after a […]

Sixer’s Substitute Soapbox: a view from the Avenue as Watford win

Malcolm Dawson writes….with Santa’s Advent timetable and the weather in Weardale conspiring against us neither Pete Sixsmith nor I made it to the Stadium of Light to witness first hand yet another home defeat against a side that we would have expected, in our unjustified state of optimism, to have beaten. So we are grateful […]

Sunderland Out West: Muppet Show where fans were the real stars

sacramento vs safc

Malcolm Dawson writes….we’ve already had some belting stuff from our friends in SAFC NASA. What follows is no exception. Jesse Burch may not have seen our boys as often as the rest of us but he shares our passion, shares our pain and has, through some long distance form of osmosis, absorbed the DNA of […]

Sixer’s City Soapbox: Cheap beer, not much else at Hull City

sixsmith writes(sky)-1

John McCormick writes: listening to Gary Bennett on Radio Newcastle’s stream couldn’t give me the full picture of an eventful night at Hull. The pre and post- goal screams of “Fill that hole! Fill that hole! Oh no, if we could see it up here how could they not see it down there?” did not […]
