Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 0 Swansea 0. So much better, so little punch

Pete Sixsmith saw a vastly improved Sunderland performance, another clean sheet for Vito Mannone but no goals and therefore yet another draw. As this was a game many supporters feared would end in disappointment of a harsher kind, that is a perhaps some way short of disaster. Except, as Sixer’s instant seven-word verdict makes clear, we still show no sign of being able to make the most of our chances …

  1. I’d have taken a point before the game.
    I was actually encouraged by this performance. We had a lot of attempts on goal/target and against a very good Swansea team.
    Rodwell needs to come good,- he was a bit anonymous after the first 10 mins for some reason.
    Alvares looks like he could be the ticket after a few games and some fitness under his belt.

    Is it just me or does Buckley “stumble” past people? Anyway, he’s decent at stumbling and stumbled into Rangel and got a red card decision.
    Solid performance at the back as we limited a very good team to long range efforts. Overall, I’m encouraged.

  2. After last season when they whipped us home and away, I was fearing the worst….thought Bony would have started. Swansea have quickly established themselves as a decent Prem side. Whilst we’re all aching for a first win, that’s the fifth game where our results have improved on last season….or the most recent fixture in Burnley’s case. I know people will be frustrated but considering who we had managing and where we were after 6 games last season, we’re making progress.

    Now a nice win against Stoke and things will look rosier
