Sixer’s Sevens: Hope rekindled v Hull

John McCormick  writes……..

For the first half hour or so I thought we were in for a bashing. We looked off the pace, and Elmo was showing Patrick how to do it. But the balance shifted, don’t you think, as the game went on. And who do you think was responsible? Was it David Moyes? Well, maybe, but Pete Sixsmith, there to the death, offers another possibility, in seven words, no more, no less:

November 19 Sunderland 3  (1 ) Hull City 0  (0 ) Victor’s the boy. We have some hope
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. Victor was immense as was Jordan and Billy Jones had a very good game as well, what he lacks in skill he certainly makes up for in effort.

    N’Dongs passing was abysmal, and Jerome sublime.

    Dare we start hoping!!!!!

    • Funny isn’t it. I too thought Jones had a decent game but a caller on Total Sport thought he was rubbish. Ndong improved as the game went on but he’s no M’Vila.

      Keep that hope in check. Hull are a poor side and for long periods we let them look good. Beat Leicester and I might start to think we have a realistic chance of doing another Houdini act.
