Crisis at Christmas for Salut! Sunderland but Happy Boxing Day to all

Ho ho ho(a)'way the lads

Salut! Sunderland hopes against hope that the recent crisis is over, though if you leave a comment it may not appear to be visible. We are seeing them and they are being saved so please leave them and they should appear as the glitches get sorted but latest viewings suggest that at this time (1.30 […]

Keith Charlton RIP: ‘in heaven getting Stokoe and Porterfield’s autographs’

Keih Charlton RIP

It is rare to be moved so much by the death of someone you did not know, Monsieur Salut writes. Keith Charlton’s passing has had that effect. I am sure lots of others who didn’t know him personally will look at the photographs of Keith, the first secretary of the SAFCSA Boldon branch and a […]

Power to Jack Ross; his faith in Max is rewarded

Charlie Wyke courtesy of www.safc.com

Vote to rename the Stadium of Light south stand. Then on to North, West and East?

Can we keep the faith?

Monsieur Salut welcomes plans to rename one of the Stadium of Light stands … Maybe Bradley Lowery, which would have been my choice, is a name for one of the other three stands.

Malcolm Dawson writes……..in the briefest of statements the club has announced that it has reached an agreement with Papy Djilobodji that will finally bring an end to his employment at SAFC and bring closure to a saga which seems to epitomise the way the club had been badly run and the contrast in policy and […]

Ha’way this Lad: Eric Keeler runs from sea to shining sea for Spinal Research

c

Put aside thoughts about any other Keeler you may have heard of. Ours – that is to say, our fellow-Sunderland supporter Eric Keeler – has taken on a mighty but admirable challenge.

Malcolm Dawson writes… …this afternoon’s announcement that the club has served notice on Didier Ndong has surely come as no surprise. The club’s record signing who stated his intention not to play for the club again could surely not have expected to be taken back into the fold after a five month no show. His […]
