Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0 Norwich 0. Brown red deepens despair

Pete Sixsmith - or supersub - does it in seven words
Pete Sixsmith – or supersub – does it in seven words

A draw is, of course, better than a defeat. Unfortunately, in in Sunderland’s predicament, it is not enough. With possession galore, especially in the second half, there ought to have been two goals difference by the end. Instead, there was distinct lack of finishing strength and Wes Brown was harshly sent off by our friend Martin Atkinson in the final minute. His tackle looked a yellow card offence but handed Norwich a chance they did not merit to steal the points – and deprives SAFC of a key player. The task looks as great as ever and Pete Sixsmith, with his usual seven-word instant verdict, was unimpressed ..

  1. By them (sic) ref’s (sic) are bad bastards arent (sic) they.(sic) Theyre (sic) ganging up on you lot. Now I know you have plenty on your plate without the likes of me pestering to know how the mags (sic) went on so I remembered to look this time and they won 3 nil away

  2. Yet another visit to the Appeal Court – can’t see them overturning 2 reds for the same player in a matter of weeks. Have Christmas off Wesley.

    • Quote from ALS (Page 9) which landed on my mat yesterday, referring to Wesley “the likelihood of him getting sent off any time soon is very unlikely”. OOPS
