Is supporting Sunderland a waste of time and space?

New away kit, courtesy of Sunderland AFC. Love it? Hate it? Think it may grow on you?

Others have hauled me over the coals and I now accept I was probably too kind, as supersub for Pete Sixsmith’s Sixer’s Sevens, in stressing the late efforts to salvage a point at Chelsea. My seven-worder, “Fought like tigers. Undone by woeful start”, was intended to convey both a spot of praise for the way […]

Chelsea v SAFC Guess the Score: will Leicester result help or hinder?

Click on Jake's banner and you go to the Guess the Score posting for this game. Have a go ...

Knowing Sunderland supporters as we do, the easiest guesswork in this week’s competition would be to predict the answer to the question in the headline. Decades of disappointment have made most of us professional gloom merchants. So Chelsea’s latest defeat, 2-1 at refreshingly table-topping Leicester, damages our prospects for Saturday at the Bridge rather than […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0 Watford 1. Undone by all the old faults

Now is the time for Sunderland to get both parts of the package right: play well and win rather settling for gallant loser status. After all the praise heaped on the team for a performance that deserved so much better than a 3-1 defeat, Ian Todd, a name synonymous with the London branch of the […]
