From Anfield to Accrington? Why Wembley will wait

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

If you read Pete Sixsmith’s match report on the Sheffield United cup match or Malcolm’s account from last Saturday you’ll know I was  up for the MK Dons game. Malcolm might have given you a clue that it wasn’t just any old visit. Pete did, too, but I deleted his brief reference. It was, in […]

Sunderland vs Charlton Athletic at Wembley: let’s get it right this time

Jake: 'we have some good time'

Charlton finished the League One season in style and ended up two places ahead of us, writes Monsieur Salut. Until that poor return of four points from three successive home games, I was confident we would go up in an automatic top two place. It wasn’t to be. We did not end the season in […]

View from the NW Corner: Why Checkatrade defeat was a victory for me!

View From(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….this was a competition that hardly anyone cared about six months ago and on Sunday no more than 9,655 of the 85,021 in attendance could have witnessed Sunderland and Portsmouth’s first foray into the 2018/19 Checkatrade Trophy. That figure includes the 69 Gillingham fans who made the trip along the south coast last […]

Sixer’s Sunderland-Portsmouth Soapbox: Wembley woes Vol VI

Jake captures our gloom

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith and I did it in style, lunch (nothing to write home about) and drinks in the Bobby Moore suite, seats on the halfway line. It was a great occasion and at half time, we imagined a bit of silverware was ours. Wasn’t to be. Poor Catts had an excellent game […]

Sixer’s Wembley Seven: Portsmouth perfect as Sunderland’s Wembley curse continues

Jake

I was sweating in the last few minutes of extra time, thinking “the next goal will win it”. And then Portsmouth scored, after we had lost all of the shape and brio that marked our first half performance. But somehow we scored a second  time to send the game to penalties. Which we lost. Pete […]

A Wembley a Day. When Man City did what Man United couldn’t

Click on Jake's image to follow our buildup to Sunday's Checkatrade Trophy final

John McCormick writes: should I be surprised or not that Lee Cattermole is the only survivor of our last trip to Wembley? After all, it was five years – or six managers, not including two caretakers – ago? We fans are much more constant aren’t we, which brings me to Pete Sixsmith, who before he […]

A Wembley a Day. Not Sunderland, not once-mighty Leeds, but no less northern for all that

Click on Jake's image to follow our buildup to Sunday's Checkatrade Trophy final

You might be forgiven for having expected Pete Sixsmith to write solely about Sunderland’s trips to Wembley in this series. Then after reading his first post in the series and remembering where he’s from you might have anticipated another mention of Leeds at some point.  But Pete is more than this, a true man of […]

A Wembley a Day: after Sunderland beat Newcastle, along came Swindon

Click on Jake's image to follow our buildup to Sunday's Checkatrade Trophy final

John McCormick writes: I occasionally write about North-Western clubs and their tribulations on this website, but other than that I pay little heed to goings on in the football world outside the SoL. It came as something of a surprise to me when Swindon had their promotion rescinded and we went up instead. If you […]
