Sixer’s Sevens: Swansea 4 – SAFC 0: no new manager bounce today

Pete Sixsmith - or supersub - does it in seven words

John McCormick writes: Today it’s the supersub and I’m sure Pete Sixsmith will be glad he wasn’t there. I was thinking up loads of sevens this week and up until half-time they were all positive but it’s M Salut himself who summarises the game with seven words we hoped we wouldn’t see:

October 19 2013 Swansea City 4 (0) SAFC 0 (0) No Poyet magic cure for abject failure*

October 5 2013 SAFC (1) 1 Manchester United (0) 2 Better side first half, outclassed in second

September 30 2013 SAFC (0) 1 Liverpool (2) 3 Spirit in abundance, undone by shoddy defending

September 24 2013 Capital One Cup 3rd Round: SAFC (1) 2 Peterborough United (0) 0 A solid performance without any touchline histrionics

September 21 2013 West Bromwich Albion 3 (1) SAFC 0 (0) Coach looks completely out of his depth

September 14 2013 SAFC (0) 1 Arsenal (1) 3 Performance far better than the result suggests

August 31 2013 Crystal Palace (1) 3 SAFC (0) 1

Nowhere near good enough for this league

August 27 2013 Capital One Cup 2nd Round: SAFC (0) 4 MK Dons (1) 2

Outplayed, outclassed, somehow got out of jail

August 24 2013 Southampton (0) 1 SAFC (1) 1

The point was better than the performance

August 17 2013 SAFC (0) 0 Fulham (0) 1 Ultimately little difference from previous two seasons

  1. Not one text or phone call from any of my fellow SAFC supporters after the match yesterday. Nothing to say and that just about sums up the current situation

  2. First half seemed promising, without us really threatening their goal much. We seemed hard to break down.
    Second half was a white-flag performance.

    There is a slight hope that next week our home crowd will be so noisy that we will propel our team to victory and spark into flame a new confidence. Here’s hoping!

  3. Poyet likes to use big words like organisation and concentration. Well, try these big words Gus…CAPITULATION and RELEGATION.

  4. The end of the PL is nigh, unless ES has funds available in January we are doomed.

    Well done Catts and Westwood for trying to drag the rest of the sorry arses with you (Fletcher exempted)
