Ha'way The Lads with Salut

Monsieur Salut invites all readers who are not members of the Salut! Sunderland Facebook group or followers on Twitter to put matters right …

When I checked a few minutes ago, the Facebook group had 658 members and the Salut! Sunderland account at Twitter had 1,968 followers. And of course there are those three million-plus visits we’ve received here since launching, very quietly, in 2007.

Not bad for what one Newcastle fan described here the other day as an “obscure Mackem site”.

It would be even better if the Facebook group could somehow climb to 1,000 members and the Twitter followers to 2,000.

If you do not belong to the first and/or follow the second, can I persuade you to rectify that? It’s really quite simple:

facebook3* FACEBOOK: click on this link and you’re there. You’ll see a green “join here” box; just click on that.

twitter* TWITTER: the name is simply salutsunderland you get there by clicking this link. The one down side is you get tweets about my ordinary journalistic articles. But the activity is mostly SAFC-elated (at least I think it is).

If you share our deputy editor Malcolm Dawson’s distaste for social media, you will do neither and face no criticism for that choice. But it’s nice to feel people want to belong.
