Sixer’s Stoke City Soapbox: Cats get the point of the penalty shoot out

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……at only three quid admission plus a loyalty point to count towards away tickets this was a must not miss game. Well it was for me anyway and the three members of the Heart of England branch that I bumped into, who had made the trip up from Coventry, for what many would […]

Sixer’s Sevens Stoke City U21s: Cats get the bonus in penalty shoot out

Jake

Malcolm Dawson writes…..this was a game that rarely got the pulses racing but was decent enough entertainment I thought. I suppose you’d have to say there was a reasonable crowd there but not that many that there was any need to queue for the loos or park miles away from the ground. But there were […]

Stoke City, the U23s and the Hetton Irregulars. What more could you want on a Monday Night?

As soon as Pete Sixsmith and the trusty Mazda returned from Luton he was under the bonnet, checking the oil, putting air in the tyres and refilling the tank. For there was no time to rest, no time to reflect on the gardens, gnomes and conservatories of Old Oak Road. The Under 23s were playing […]

Thanks for the memories, Tommy Sorensen. Stoke, Aston Villa fans may agree

Pete Sixsmith bids a fond farewell to Thomas Sorensen, a great Sunderland goalkeeper of recent times, as he puts away his gloves and enters retirement (from playing at any rate) … Thomas Sorensen announced his retirement today, ending a distinguished career that has taken him from Denmark via Wearside, Birmingham, the Potteries and Australia’s second […]

Sixer’s Stoke City Soapbox: Potters pile more pain on Moyes’s Boys (and us!)

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……….I never get too worked up about performances such as yesterday’s. I just don’t – ever! I enjoy it when we play well and win and can be as excited and emotional as the next person but my intense disappointment after a poor performance and defeat never really spills over into anger or […]

Moyes on the Boys after Stoke debacle: ‘just 20 dodgy minutes’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: people left their Stadium of Light seats in droves, Pete Sixsmith sent demoralised text messages and I ended up giving three-out-of-10s galore in my ESPN FC ratings.

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1-3 Stoke City. With barely a whimper

Monsieur Salut writes: Is there no end to the pain to which Sunderland supporters are subjected by those rewarded handsomely to manage and play for the club? By the time Sunderland got started, 38 minutes into this miserable game, they were three down; it might have been four or five so easily had a well-organised […]

Should Sunderland aim to be more like Stoke?

Jake: 'more squeaky bum time?'

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith raised this question here several months ago. It occurred to me again as I wrote my preview of Sunderland vs Stoke City for ESPN FC – is Mark Hughes’s side, and the club itself, more or less what SAFC should be aiming to emulate? Why can they attract players with […]
