Sixer’s Sevens: One hard-fought win. Three well-earned points v Man Utd

ManUtdH(FT)

John McCormick writes: Ed posted that his lift to the game had been delayed because of the snow. I hope he got there in time for the start.

Sam’s transfer dealings appear to be paying off  and we might, just might, be in with a chance.

What does Pete Sixsmith think? We’ll have to wait for his more considered opinion but now, while we’re still exulting over our first home win against Man Utd since Micky Gray,  here’s his instant seven-word verdict:

Feb 13 2016 Sunderland (1) 2 Man Utd (1) 1  Sam’s new boys make all the difference

Feb 6 2016 Liverpool (0) 2 Sunderland (0) 2
1) Could this be the season’s turning point? and
2) *The window’s shut but so’s the trapdoor

  1. A good transfer window for once , it seems to have made all the difference . I just hope its not too late and if it is, that we can keep that squad together and come straight back up .
