Sixer’s Sevens. Brentford 3 Sunderland 3. Can’t Hold on to a Lead.

Sixer’s sevens. Brentford 3 Sunderland 3. Can’t hold on to a lead.

Jake: ‘it’s not always pretty’

John McCormick writes: We’ve now conceded 25 goals already this season, although it appears that the last of them came from a deflection that left our keeper no chance.

Still, I suppose a point away’s not too bad, especially as Brentford had 9 shots on target, but not being able to hold on to a two goal lead’s a concern.  And that forms the basis of Bob Chapman’s (off the bench as Sixer’s sub today) seven-word summary:

October 21 Brentford 3 (1) Sunderland 3 (3) * Two in front yet lucky to survive

Sixer’s sevens. Brentford 3 Sunderland 3. Can’t hold on to a lead.

September 26 Ipswich Town 5 (2) Sunderland (1) 2 Sunderland’s defending plummets to unheard of depths

September 23 Sunderland 1 (0) Cardiff City 2 (1) Undoubtedly the worst Sunderland team I’ve watched

August 8 League Cup: Bury 0 (0) Sunderland (0) 1 Hardly convincing but a win’s a win
