Gloom on the Ganges

Ganges1
Always look on the bright side of life? Where is the bright side to being hammered 7-1 at Goodison?

Salut! Sunderland was drifting on the peaceful waters of the Ganges until just before the goals started going in. The texts from home weren’t exactly what I’d hoped for when I came ashore.

Pete Sixsmith will perhaps be amplifying his Sixer’s Seven with a Soapbox column in due course. Viewed from Varanasi, however, the first thought after getting over the initial shock of a wretched result and resigning myself to probable relegation was to wonder whether he’d consider the performance worth seven words at all.

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.
