Sixer’s Southend Soapbox: no points for Sol from the SoL

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……the bus from the business park off Wessington Way to the ground was packed yesterday but there was no buzz of conversation or air of excitement pre-match. Whether this is a reflection of the type of supporter who elects to use the park and ride, rather than sink a few in the hostelry […]

Returning visitors to Salut! Sunderland will know that Pete Sixsmith, our regular match correspondent, is a Guardian reading liberal (with a small l) with a well developed sense of decency and fair play but there are a few things that I guarantee will provoke him enough to elicit a barrage of anger and expletives, namely: […]

Will Toney atone? Luke O’Nien cleared but Peterborough man’s simulation stains football

Click the banner to guess the score

HThe hardest bit is trying to enter the mindset of a professional footballer who, during a meaningless touchline tangle after his team has taken an unassailable 3-0 lead, receives no contact to his face but goes down clutching it as if someone has just whacked him with a sideways blow from a sledgehammer. Luke O’Nien […]

The Chapman Report from Peterborough: alarm bells or just a wake up call?

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Malcolm Dawson writes…..with Pete Sixsmith having set himself a southern limit of Lincoln City for away days this season, Bob Chapman steps off the subs’ bench for his take on yesterday’s events. His full time 7 word summary said not a single positive from this shocker.  I have to say I thought we started the […]

Sixer’s Bradford City Soapbox: Plenty of Christmas cheer on Boxing Day

Bradford H FT

Malcolm Dawson writes……. Pete Sixsmith is usually very busy at this time of year, and although he was at the Stadium of Light last night is otherwise engaged this morning, so once again he has asked me to climb on the soapbox for the Salut! Sunderland take on our FA Cup defeat. Make no mistake. […]

Sixer’s Carlisle United Soapbox: is this the beginning of a great adventure?

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes………I am otherwise engaged in the wilds of West Lancashire this week, or I would have made it last night to bulk up the crowd and get another loyalty point on my season card. I’m betting there’ll be more than 7,800 Sunderland followers looking for Wembley tickets, should last night prove to be […]

Sixer’s Sheffield Wednesday Soapbox: not enough to pass the test but A for effort

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..there were plenty of positives to take from last night’s game, both on and off the field. Off the field the new administration’s decision to seat the majority of fans in the East Stand made economic and logistical sense as well as projecting a better image to the watching television audience and creating […]

Salut! Sunderland extends its customary greetings to a new Lad. […]
