The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Luton Town

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes, I’m  not sure whether or not I ever saw Luton during the sixties. Pete Sixsmith didn’t, so I doubt that I did.  I might have seen them in the game below but it’s unlikely as I was in my first year away and didn’t go back that often. I did go back […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Shrewsbury Town

Click the banner to go to the prize Guess the Score competition. Shrewsbury fans welcome

With Christmas and hopefully Salut! Sunderland’s website issues behind us, we look forward to New Year and a trip to the seaside, where more than 7,000 Mackems, many of whom will be nursing massive hangovers, will converge on Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road. But before that we have a little matter of a home game against Shrewsbury […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Bradford City

John McCormick writes: This is the second time I’ve set up this post. I spent hours working round the site problems and embedding files from a remote server so I could do Pete Sixsmith’s effort justice and then it disappeared, presumably never to return.  But as my  granny may have said, if a thing’s worth […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Bristol Rovers

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I won’t be in the North East for the home game but I have my eye on the away fixture at Bristol this season. It would be another club and ground on my list, not that I’m collecting. If I was, however, it would be some years before I could approach the […]

The First Time Ever We Played Your Team: Walsall meet a legend

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith takes us back to the time when I was just getting into football. Some of the players below became very familiar to me as I saw them play at Roker many times. Others, Peter Wakeham and Jack Overfield, for example, are nowhere in my memory bank though Ambrose Fogarty is […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Barnsley, nostalgia and an everyday housewife (honest)

Salut Banner2(featured image)

John McCormick writes: one of the joys of this series (and of its companion for away matches) is elegant prose, another is the pictures and videos which accompany it and then there are the asides that might be, but aren’t always, football related. It’s just a little bit of a magic combination, not to be […]

Malcolm Dawson writes………our publication of Pete Sixsmith’s twin series, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground (before our away fixtures) and The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team (for our visitors to the Stadium of Light) is normally the remit of our Associate Editor John McCormick but his ageing laptop has finally succumbed to […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Southend United

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Southend, nope, I don’t think so. I’ve not seen them. This week’s Who Are You guest, Rhys Ellingham, wrote about us playing them in 06/07 but the only time I  got to the SOL that season was on 11th November, when we drew with Southampton, so I missed them by a good three months, […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Peterborough United

Salut Banner2(featured image)

John McCormick writes: The time’s right and I saw all of the players Pete mentions below, including George Kinnell, but I have only the most fleeting memories of this game.  So fleeting that the scoreline rings no bells with me, and surely it should. Could it be that I wasn’t there and I’m suffering from […]

A couple of days ago I thought I’d got it wrong, writes John McCormick, and should be looking at trains to Manchester, or at least asking the boss if I could have the car, in order to get to Rochdale. I had got it wrong as Rochdale head north over the weekend and I have […]
