Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0 Fulham 3. A soft thrashing

pete2

Starting with a dreary return to general incompetence at home to Fulham – OK, we have no fit strikers, but does that stop us defending too? – these are the most recent of Pete Sixsmith‘s incisive seven-word verdicts capturing the essence of just about every game. When, rarely, Pete is absent, a supersub does it for him.

All horrendously flat today; some good first-half approach work brought no reward, Fulham took an undeserved lead before reaching a scoreline that suggested a romp but really just reflected our own capitulation. There will be no immediate post-match report tonight, though Pete’s full analysis will appear within the next couple of days.

The full Sixer’s Sevens archive – see link below – encapsulates the matchday experiences, from darkest gloom to sublime elation, of a fan who is usually there …

  1. He has to be gone at the end of the campaign. Same excuses and the same problems week in week out. He’s a bloody disaster!

  2. Bruce’s excuses won’t wash any more.
    Incompetent defending, wayward passing and non existent midfield contributed to yet another humiliatiing defeat.
    I feel like I’m watching a re-run of the 15 point season again; in fact four points from 11 games isn’t even that good.
