Sixer’s Sevens: Aston Villa 0 SAFC 0 – clean sheet stops the rot

Jake says "nowts apiece!"

With Pete Sixsmith indulging his passion for Rugby League at the World Cup Final at Old Trafford today it falls to his fellow Shildonian and East Stand neighbour, Peter Horan to step up from the bench and provide today’s Seven. Pre-match discussion revolved around the replacing of Johnson and Colback with Borini and Gardner and whether or not the team would leave the pitch with the same number of players that walked out of the tunnel prior to Kick Off. The final whistle saw an improvement of sorts, Sunderland leaving the field with a full complement of players, a clean sheet and a share of the spoils enough to get the side off the bottom of the Premier League table. Here, in seven words is the other Peter’s summation of the game.

November 30 2013 Aston Villa (0) 0 SAFC (0) 0 *Villa almost undone by cream soda performance

November 23 2013 Stoke City (1) 2 SAFC (0) 0 Ridiculous red gave us an impossible task

November 10 2013 SAFC (1) 1 Manchester City (0) 0 A wonderfully disciplined performance. Real hope now

November 6 2013 Capital One Cup 4th Round: SAFC (0) 2 Southampton (0) 1 A tidy second half brings Wembley closer

November 2 2013 Hull City (1) SAFC (0) Damage limitation after appalling first half performance

October 27 2013 SAFC (1) 2 Newcastle United (0) 1 Bragging rights and a win. Good combination/ or Perfect Poyet puts another one over Pardew

October 19 2013 Swansea City 4 (0) SAFC 0 (0) No Poyet magic cure for abject failure*

October 5 2013 SAFC (1) 1 Manchester United (0) 2 Better side first half, outclassed in second

September 30 2013 SAFC (0) 1 Liverpool (2) 3 Spirit in abundance, undone by shoddy defending

September 24 2013 Capital One Cup 3rd Round: SAFC (1) 2 Peterborough United (0) 0 A solid performance without any touchline histrionics

September 21 2013 West Bromwich Albion 3 (1) SAFC 0 (0) Coach looks completely out of his depth

September 14 2013 SAFC (0) 1 Arsenal (1) 3 Performance far better than the result suggests

August 31 2013 Crystal Palace (1) 3 SAFC (0) 1 Nowhere near good enough for this league

August 27 2013 Capital One Cup 2nd Round: SAFC (0) 4 MK Dons (1) 2Outplayed, outclassed, somehow got out of jail

August 24 2013 Southampton (0) 1 SAFC (1) 1 The point was better than the performance

August 17 2013 SAFC (0) 0 Fulham (0) 1 Ultimately little difference from previous two seasons

  1. Thought we just about edged it, but would have happily taken 0-0 before the game. Clean sheet, point away, is not bad.

    Why,O why did Gardner start? Thats the most baffling thing for me. I was OK with Borini starting before JOhnson but thought that a midfield of Ki, Cattermole and Colback would have been better.

    Still, not complaining too much.

    • I’ve just been browsing ALS.They’re saying Gus says he picked everyone who has scored this season.

      Who are we to argue with anyone as intelligent as Gus
      (or Sobs, for that matter)
