A Daughter Speaks: how Wigan and Rochdale restored the FA Cup’s shine

Footy loving Nathalie is second from the left

Amid all Sunderland’s more pressing problems, it seems almost incidental to reflect on how old you now have to be to have any dependable first-hand memory of May 5 1973: Porterfield’s goal, Monty’s double save, Stokoe’s sprint and our cup. Never forget that the London branch of the SAFC Supporters’ Association voted years ago to […]

Moyes on the Boys v Spurs: ‘We didn’t get enough of the ball…’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I would have been at this game had it been played at the original time. I suppose I should be glad I missed it; I thought the first half was mind-numbingly boring and the second half was little better, plus we lost through a soft goal. But I know nowt about football, so I […]

Tottenham Hotspur v SAFC Guess the Score: can we go on winning?

Enter, whoever you support. And don't worry if you are new to posting comments here. If yours is held for moderation - a simple anti-spam device - we will know when it was contributed and, in the case of more than one readers posting the same prediction, who was first ...

Out of sequence as Pete Sixsmith has not yet been able to file his report from Swansea, but let’s crack on … The win at Swansea was just what was needed. We all sensed defeat would send us scurrying to check out Championship street maps. Even a draw would have felt like a bodyblow but, […]

After Eight: transfer window assessed as DeAndre Yedlin strays into Hutch’s Patch

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Deadline day brought one last player to welcome. We wanted a full back and that is what DeAndre Yedlin, a USA international signed on loan from Spurs is. ‘I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to play for a club with such great history,” he says diplomatically to safc.com. ‘I’ve heard fantastic things about Sunderland […]

Taylor Made: a BBC football version of This is Your Life

Jake's Ales, Stouts and Yellow Fizz

Bill Taylor came across a nifty new BBC tool allowing fans of all Premier League teams to calculate their clubs’ performance during their lifetimes. Fellow Sunderland supporters – and others – are invited to have a go and report back any interesting findings … There’s no evidence to support this, but George Santayana, the Spanish/American […]

Sixer’s Tottenham Soapbox: resilience the key as Kane o.g. makes the point

Those who were there will be able to say “I was there” and those who weren’t there will be able to say “I wish I’d been there” but no one will be able to say how we came away with a point. Except, perhaps, our own Pete Sixsmith, who eschewed the triumphalism of the last […]

The Tottenham v Sunderland Soapbox: a Good-Bye to All That

sixer says(stripes)

We’re not sure Robert Graves had in mind an end-of-season encounter in an undreamed-of football league when he wrote his wildly premature autobiography in 1929 (he lived on for 56 years). Pete Sixsmith was there, not on May 4 1929 when Sunderland were on the wrong end of a 4-0 thumping by Sheffield United yet […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Tottenham Hotspur 1 SAFC 0. Brave, daft, defeated

Despite surviving appeals for three penalties we would have been horrified to see denied to Sunderland, PDC’s team held out with great guts for 88 minutes, only to be beaten by a combination of David Vaughan’s stupid challenge, earning him a second yellow, and Gareth Bale’s magnificent finish 13 minutes later for the late winner. […]

The Tottenham Hotspur Who are You?: ‘Danny, Danny Goes; Arsenal sneak fourth’

Hardly the words Sunderland fans want to hear. Not the dreary north London bragging rights – life’s so much more exciting at the bottom – but we want Danny, Danny Rose to see his future with Sunderland and Spurs to let him move. Our final “Who are You?” candidate of the season, the Tottenham-supporting writer […]

The Lars Word: energy, drive, enthusiasm and entertainment just around the corner

Jake's stars in our eyes - and up some noses!

Either that or shattered nerves have sent Lars Knutsen round the bend. He expects Wigan to stumble at the Emirates tonight and we all know what that would mean, unless stumble were to equal draw and they then thumped Villa by a cricket score while we lost heavily at Spurs (a combination of 6-0 and […]
