Pete Sixsmith got away with opting for the Rugby League Challenge Cup final on Saturday thanks to our drain brain drain. So Morecambe in the Capital One Cup took the place of Reading in the Premier as our SoL opener – and Pete’s. He saw comprehensive Sunderland dominance lead to a comfortable victory, James McClean scoring both goals and going close to a hat trick.
Sixer’s Sevens is intended to capture the glory and shame, hope and despair, excitement and ennui of the Sunderland matchday experience. The full archive – see link below – sums up what all Sunderland supporters feel, from darkest gloom to sublime elation, in the words of one who is usually there. On those rare occasions when he is not, or when his own verdict is delayed, the seven-word assessment is preceded by an asterisk to denote his absence.
