Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1 Everton 0. Three more priceless points

SAFCvEVERTON(FT)

Another mighty, mighty win and Pete Sixsmith‘s mid to late-season wobble may be over with any luck. Twice in six days he has seen a rejuvenated Sunderland take three points from a game. Today Stephane Sessegnon hit the first-half winner in a tense, even match that mattered mostly because of the further step it took Sunderland to safety and secondly because it put an end to a long, long wait to defeat Everton. Is it still a little early to start planning for another Premier League season? …

  1. I agree Keith, why shouldn’t a club like ours with the support it’s got expect to win trophies? It’s a disgrace that we’ve only won one cup since the 30s. We’ve only qualified for Europe once and never got anywhere near winning the league. It’s about time we stopped punching beneath our weight and showed some real ambition. PDiC seems to agree with me.

  2. Thing are put into perspective when Ellis Short states MON lost his job due to the unacceptable results over the last 12months, it wasn’t a knee jerk decision and sends out the message, I’ll give you time but I expected improvement. PDC can’t accept a club like Sunderland haven’t won anything for 40 years. Different slant on be told every year our expectation are too high. He’s a one off but he just seems the right fit.

  3. ” SAFC saying that we could only dream of being in a European competition”

    Given the current league standings and the drubbing inflicted on them last weekend, in the words of the great Mr Ellis Short, “you can just “f*** off!”

  4. A great result and thanks to Peter F from putting an Everton perspective to things.

    Does anyone wish we had kept O’Neill?

  5. All seems to be going to ES and PDC plans.

    See that Pardew (sorry for sullying the site) was in the press bemoaning the injustices of football for his side….he also had a dig at SAFC saying that we could only dream of being in a European competition.

    The truth of the matter is that in their league position the only way they will get close to Europe again is if they go and park the team bus at Dover! FTM

  6. PDC does it again,this is no flash in the pan,hard to believe the turn around he has performed.Whole team played briliantly.We might have a centre forward who cannot score but it doesn’t seem to matter.

    One more win should be enough now.Above the Mags and wigan losing,another happy weekend in store.

  7. Well done to sunderland today thoroughly deserved the 3 points. As an Evertonian the only positive I can take out of today I’d that it takes a proper team 3 points closer to safety, and also Di Canio will always be remembered and respected by Evertonians for catching the ball v West Ham (I was there and the single best example of fair play I’ve seen in 17 years in my seat). Good luck for the rest of the season lads an lasses, hopefully see you next season! An Everton Season ticket holder
