Sixer’s Sevens: Bournemouth 1-2 Sunderland. At last a win

Jake: 'Hallel.. ]blooming.ulah'

Malcolm Dawson writes………as M Salut said whilst enduring a dodgy internet connection on the train, “a win had to come sooner or later – we did worry how much later – but today’s at Bournemouth, was deserved. The usual bad start, the usual improvement, started the second half well on top, suffered a harsh-looking sending off (Pienaar), weathered a storm and went ahead. The star man was Victor Anichebe, a wonderfully physical presence, a smart goal and a penalty won.”

With Sixer watching Shildon romp to a 3-0 home win at Dean Street and me at Ironworks Road watching Tow Law concede the softest goal ever only a minute before missing a dubious penalty in a 1-1 draw with Northallerton – it falls to M Salut to act as sub and bring you his somewhat delayed 7 word summary of today’s game.

November 5  Bournemouth (1)  1  Sunderland (1) 2  *Anichebe typifies gutsy display that gives hope

October 29 Sunderland (0) 1 Arsenal (1) 4 Spectacular collapse as soon as Giroud appeared

October 26 EFL Cup 4th Round: Southampton (0) 1 Sunderland (0) 0 * More fight but still no real threat

October 22 West Ham United (0) 1 Sunderland (0) 0 A real killer. Deserved a point. Damn

October 15 Stoke City (2) 2 Sunderland (0) Another inadequate performance that offers little hope

October 1 Sunderland (0) 1 West Bromwich Albion (1) 1 Awful lot of cracks to paper over

September 24 Sunderland (1) 2 Crystal Palace (0) 3 Shambolic defending, barely of Wearside League quality

EFL Cup 3rd Round: September 21 QPR (0) 1 Sunderland (0) 2 *Paddy McNair our new Defoe? No but…

September 18: Tottenham Hotspur 1 (0) Sunderland 0 (0) Point lost thanks to traditional defensive howler

September 12 Sunderland 0 (0) Everton 3 (0) Torn apart in an abysmal second half

August 27. Southampton 1 (0) Sunderland 1 (0) Disappointing at the end, as ever here

August 24. EFL Cup 2nd Round: Sunderland 1 (0) Shrewsbury Town 0 (0) Poor game settled by an excellent goal

August 21: Sunderland 1 (0) Middlesbrough 2 (2) Another season of struggle on the cards

August 13: Man City (1) 2 Sunderland (0) 1 Held them well but tired legs told

  1. See what happens when you keep the manager off the bench! And what an astute tactical move to have Pienaar sent off so he wouldn’t get in the way. (Trivia: Fourth Premiership game he’s been dismissed from, all while playing for Moyes)

      • There was precious little to impress against Arsenal but I thought Pienaar did well trying to organise and cajole those around him, something Rodwell and Ndong didn’t do.
