The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Shrewsbury Town, Gay Meadow and the New One

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I’ve walked past the Gay Meadow ground once or twice and I’ve driven past the New Meadow, though probably before there was a football ground there, but I’ve never been inside either ground and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Shrewsbury play at all. That’s something I’m hoping to rectify this weekend, […]

Who Are You (featured image)

In the first part of a long interview with Glyn Price*, co-presenter of the Shrewsbury Town podcast Salopcast, we heard about what he calls the ‘massive’ community pride in the club and the highs and lows of supporting a lower league side (don’t expect a Salop fan to thank you for a ticket to see […]

Ha’way this Lad: Eric Keeler runs from sea to shining sea for Spinal Research

c

Put aside thoughts about any other Keeler you may have heard of. Ours – that is to say, our fellow-Sunderland supporter Eric Keeler – has taken on a mighty but admirable challenge. He is running coast-to-coast – not west Lancs to East or North Yorks but a more exacting slog across the United States and […]

Monsieur Salut writes: League One is proving a goldmine for Who are You? interviews. Glyn Price* maintains the standards set by several others. He’s the co-presenter of the Shrewsbury Town podcast Salopcast and assists the club’s Supporters’ Parliament. Some great responses await you, but it’s a long interview so has been divided into two. The […]

Embracing the Sea Change at Sunderland. Two recent statements on the club website show just how things are changing on the banks of the Wear and how we are moving back to a situation where the Stadium of Light is once again the home of Sunderland Association Football Club and no longer that of Sunderland […]

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

My  “how’s it going?” piece went up on Friday, as per usual over the last few international breaks, and elicited few responses, as per usual over the last few seasons. I had expected one or  two Coventry ninjas (there can’t be many more than two) to pick up the series and comment but it appears to […]

Branch Lines: keeping the Sunderland faith down the A19

Jake: 'when will we next see sunny times for Sunderland AFC?'

Barnsley lurk behind Peterborough, Portsmouth and Sunderland, while Charlton and Coventry stutter.

With a break this weekend it’s time to revisit our “Ones to watch”. If you’ve been following this series you’ll remember that we’re tracking six clubs over the course of the season.

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes………I am otherwise engaged in the wilds of West Lancashire this week, or I would have made it last night to bulk up the crowd and get another loyalty point on my season card. I’m betting there’ll be more than 7,800 Sunderland followers looking for Wembley tickets, should last night prove to be […]
