Jake: 'sunnier times for Sunderland AFC'. Click the image to reach Salut! Sunderland's home page

Charlton finished the League One season in style and ended up two places ahead of us, writes Monsieur Salut. Until that poor return of four points from three successive home games, I was confident we would go up in an automatic top two place. It wasn’t to be. We did not end the season in […]

Talk about doing it the hard way. We knew the playoffs would be tough and that is how it is turning out, at least for us. To no great surprise, we take a narrow lead to Portsmouth while Charlton grabbed a straightforward 2-1 win at Doncaster – forget the away goals, or absence of them, […]

Click Jake's image to enter

Our Southend “Who are You?” interviewee Ian Charnock has expressed the hope that Jack Ross adopts a cautious approach and holds back on selecting key players. But isn’t it important to end the disappointing league programme on a high? A team that has won only one of the last six games is arguably not in […]

Fleetwood Town vs Sunderland. Down to playing for pride

Click Jake's image to enter

It’s over bar the playoffs. Another failure to win ends any real prospect of an automatic promotion place. Drawing at home to Portsmouth didn’t cause this huge disappointment. We had already shot ourselves in one foot, losing that crazy 5-4 game at home to Coventry, and then in the other one after going ahead late […]

Sunderland vs Portsmouth: a question of points no longer in our hands

Guess the score

Even as I wrote last week that we would remain masters of our destiny and go up automatically provided we matched our rivals’ results, I was riddled with doubt, says Monsieur Salut. A quick look at the fixtures at the top end of League One table showed there was no room for the least slip. […]

Peterborough United vs Sunderland: the stakes are high

Guess the score

We did what was necessary against Doncaster Rovers. We are still masters of our own destiny. But that could change if we falter against Posh. With so few games left, there is no further leeway. The results of others have to be matched. If they are, we go up automatically, without the ordeal of playoffs. […]

Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers: dare we even ask?

Jake

Will it be a Good Friday or are we heading for purgatory? With some trepidation, Salut! Sunderland invites readers to do what none could hope to do before the Coventry game and correctly predict the outcome of SAFC vs Doncaster Rovers. It is reasonable to suggest that the Easter weekend will bring a clearer idea […]

SAFC vs Coventry City Guess the Score: the home run

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the banner to have a go

When you are in sight of an automatic promotion place, three successive home games might appear something of a gift. But nerves play a part, too, and often enough this season Sunderland have suffered less in this respect on their travels than at the Stadium of Light, says Monsieur Salut. The first of that trio […]

Sunderland vs Burton Albion Guess the Score: a night to go second?

Guess the score

Towards the end of last season, not quite a year ago so not at the very end, Burton Albion visited the Stadium of Light, won 2-1 and sent Sunderland down for the second successive season. The fact that most of us were already resigned to relegation made it little easier to stomach and the Netflix […]
