Just to show Salut! Sunderland can also be brief: Sixer’s Sevens will be one-line match verdicts from my great friend and Sunderland supporter par excellence Pete Sixsmith.
Each will stretch to seven words or fewer. My technical adviser – a Man City fan who studied in Sunderland – will improve the presentation once he gets a chance to look under the bonnet, as he likes to describe it. We’ll even get round to finding a better mugshot of Pete.
One of his better if more depressing summaries from recent history condensed Sunderland vs Everton last season to this: "0-1. Cahill. 92 mins."
I quoted it in a piece I wrote for The Daily Telegraph sports pages when we later played Chelsea.
His first for Salut! Sunderland: SAFC 1 Ipswich 0, Jan 13 2007: Spoiled by wind. New boys all impressed.
Look out for the new posting.
