Sixer’s Sheffield Wednesday Seven: out but not disgraced

Pete Sixsmith was not to be found in the matchday (matchnight?) programme for the League Cup game against the Owls. But he was present for a 2-0 defeat in which there was plenty to admire in Sunderland’s performance. He reckoned we played some really nice football before poor Ozturk’s awful error in the first half allowed Sheff Wed to go ahead against the run of play. The result was sealed with a second Owls goal near the end. Another redeeming feature? Sixer’s first SAFC programme article should be in Sunday’s edition, for the return to League One vs Scunthorpe. This, however, is his first, succinct verdict on tonight’s exit from th EFL/Carabao/League Cup …


Aug 16 Carabao Cup: Sunderland (0) 0 Sheffield Wednesday (1) 2 Result disappointing but plenty to enthuse about

Aug 11 Luton Town (0) 1 Sunderland (1) 1 Played well in patches against solid opposition

Aug 4 Sunderland (0) 2 Charlton Athletic (1) 1 A great day for club and academy

July 21 St Mirren (0) 0 Sunderland (2) 6 * Cracking results like this will suit fine

July 17 Grimsby Town (0) Sunderland (1) 1 *Gooch’s header from Maguire’s cross settles matters

July 14 Hartlepool United (1) 1 Sunderland (0) 1 Yet to see anything to inspire confidence

July 10 Darlington (1) 1 Sunderland (0) 0 Embarrassing

  1. So very disappointed in Alim Ozturk. He’s really all at sea. Dreadful defending for the first goal. Lots of real positives despite the score line. If we’s played with a proper centre forward it would have been a different story tonight.
