The Chapman Report from Wycombe: ‘so lacking in threat that with Ross, it would have turned nasty’

The Chapman ReportNO PIC

Monsieur Salut writes: abject apologies to all our readers. A technical issue shut us down for a while but we now appear to be at least on our way back to normality. Bob Chapman once again filled Sixer’s boots in style and ought to have a cheerful match report to offer. But hey, this is […]

Salut! Sunderland welcomes Lee Burge, competition for Jon McLaughlin

tt

Fans, understandably, look at new signings and, if a player is coming on a free transfer, feel underwhelmed and wonder whether progress is actually being made. Long experience has taught Monsieur Salut to avoid rash judgements just because July starts without any major new additions. On that wretched but sometimes useful thing that is social […]

Josh Maja: fall-out and falling out as Bordeaux uncorks its cheeky new red

Josh on the scoresheet again., Sixer inside the programme

Monsieur Salut writes: the club’s statement on the completion of Josh Maja’s move to Bordeaux was short and uninformative. We awaited some thanks, either way. They came belatedly from Maja and we should give him the benefit of the doubt and accept them at face value as being his own sentiments, not some old dross […]
