From Kenilworth Road to Deepdale

We hardly need an excuse to want to see this. If you were lucky enough to be there, that is Luton, the context it gives the afternoon’s events is superb. No one was at both games yet you see how they both developed, ending with ecstasy for us, disappointment for Birmingham and gloom for Preston.

Thanks to nsyncstar4live, Dale9393 and all the other fans who post these priceless snippets to places where I can find them.

It may not last, but football supporters are mucked about so much by mass media, the game’s ruling bodies and other business interests that I am overcome with feelings of “so what?” each time one of them yelps about infringements of intellectual property.

Thanks also to Pete Sixsmith, whose service from every game since Salut! Sunderland was launched in January, coincidentally at the start of our romp through the Championship, has been faultless.

He has things to say in the next day or so about his experiences as a Sunderland fan.

There are also many more Celebrity Supporter interviews to post to the site. It doesn’t matter when they are seen by individual visitors; one of my main purposes in creating the site was to build up an archive of that material, some of which I fondly believe is of value to followers of SAFC.

And I have updates from Kate Adie and Joe Simpson, plus feelers out to others.

So Salut! Sunderland will remain active, if less busy, during the close season.

Like everyone else, and despite that sense of pessimism instilled in me, I cannot wait for August. But stick with me in the meantime and there should still be plenty to read.

Salut! Sunderland is written, illustrated and edited by - and principally for - supporters of Sunderland AFC. The site aims to be sufficiently literate and entertaining to appeal to people who do not follow SAFC but enjoy good football writing.
