Jake: ‘ha’way Lads, this time’

 

There are two Salut! Sunderland competitions on the go.

Guess the Score in the match at West Brom and you could win your choice from these mugs – the inclusion of WBA-themed mugs indicating that Baggies are welcome to enter, too.  This posting is a signpost – you cannot post comments here – and you should go to the main Guess the Score article by clicking anywhere on this sentence if you want to have a go.

The same applies to Salut! Sunderland’s 10th birthday competition. We invited readers to share their thoughts on any Sunderland-related topic with 10 years being the theme.

This site was launched in January 2007 as Roy Keane led a remarkable bottom-to-top charge to promotion. We have been in the Premier League ever since though our status is once again under severe threat.

So your postings should cover anything that strikes you as worth commenting on about that period, whether memories and anecdotes, your impressions of what this site does well and what it does not and your hopes for the next 10 years.

See the entries already posted and you’ll get the idea. Again, you cannot post your contributions here but must go to the original article at http://salutsunderland.com/2017/01/a-thank-you-from-salut-sunderland-10-years-old-this-week/
The prize is from our friends at Tales of Red & Whites, publishers of a series of books on SAFC. They have kindly agreed to offer the winner a miniature version of Nick Barnes’ Matchbook, described as the BBC commentator’s “beautifully crafted match notes for season 2015/16 in a unique box set design”.

And for other reading, please see the West Brom “Who are You?” at http://salutsunderland.com/2017/01/west-brom-vs-safc-who-are-you-ballad-of-the-running-baggie/ and Jim Minton’s superb report on his experiences as a Sunderland supporter attending the Africa Nations Cup. That can be seen here.

Ha’way the Lads.

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.
