Sixer’s Sevens: Oxford set the scene for the season

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

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 […]

Sunderland vs Oxford United: the sound of silence

Jake: let's get off to a winning start

Well that went down well. Our cheeky attempt to draw some thoughts from Oxford United supporters ahead of Saturday’s opening League One game at the Stadium of Light, fell on deaf ears. Charlie Methven, Sunderland executive director but also a fervent Oxford United fan, has spoken on these pages of the passion his fellow supporters […]

Jake: let's get off to a winning start

An invitation to Oxford United supporters ahead of the League One opener at Sunderland

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

It began more than 11 years ago as Who are They? and evolved quickly into Who are You?, Salut Sunderland‘s series of interviews with fans of each of Sunderland’s opposing clubs. We’ve had the famous and the not-so-famous, creating a rich archive of often quite outstanding features. There have been few gaps and those that […]

Portsmouth then Sunderland, Ipswich, Rotherham, Peterborough and Coventry top our poll. But where are Lincoln?

On Friday we had over 3,000 visitors, followed by a quiet weekend. Not everyone took part in our top six poll  but over 1200 votes (not voters) have now been cast. That’s not bad, I suppose, for a League One fans’ site but I am expecting a few more will chip in before the season […]

Ipswich or Portsmouth? Rotherham or Peterborough? How about Lincoln or Coventry? It’s your choice

Last season our punters got it more or less right and correctly predicted most of the top six. Luton were missed but that was mainly down to the Coventry Ninjas, whose hijack of last year’s poll pushed them (Luton) out of the top places. Maybe the ninjas or another club’s fans will do the same […]

From MK Dons to Rochdale via Oxford, Peterborough and Portsmouth: it’s a short financial ramble

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

It was on 18th June that I put up the first in this series, covering the League One clubs beginning A-L, apart from Bury, Blackpool and Bolton. This, part two, was intended to cover the back end of the alphabet but, at 2,300 words, ended up far too big for a single webpage. There was […]

Sixer’s Oxford United Soapbox: déjà vu as a Sunderland speciality

sixer says(stripes)

The Observer, Britain’s finest newspaper (remember those handy objects?) is awash with Sunderland today. There’s an excellent sports section piece on the Netflix series Sunderland ‘Til I Die, focusing perceptively on Jonny Williams and Jack Rodwell. And there’s an interesting but incomplete feature by the author Anthony Clavane on the threat Brexit poses to Wearside, […]
