Pete Sixsmith’s Soapbox from Barnsley will not be with us until later in the day and we also need to check whether our headlines are being ‘grabbed’ by the newsnow.co.uk aggregator (Sixer’s Sevens seems to have avoided their radar last night) […]

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

We are all excited about Wembley and 38,979 of us will be there in the designated Sunderland seats on March 31. But let us not lose sight of this season’s key objective: promotion. Two away games loom, Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday and Barnsley next Tuesday. Both are vital. We must do at least as well […]

Another home game and another chance to put pressure on Luton and Barnsley, says Monsieur Salut.

Will Guess the Score predictions become gloomier, asks Monsieur Salut?
