Win on Sunday and, as we all know, at least one more Wembley date beckons. Some pragmatic supporters feel that having had our day of pride, competing on equal terms with one of the best teams in the world so that they were time-wasting shamelessly before the undeserved third goal, we should settle for an [...]
Check out the Campo Retro website at www.camporetro.com We said the prize could go to a supporter of either league cup final side and Simon Curtis, our Man City guest in the “Who are You?” hot seat, was the winner. Simon, a past prize-winner in the annual “Who are You?” awards, loyally but also, sad [...]
We went early with Guess the Score and have already had a good few entries. Check the replies at http://salutsunderland.com/2014/02/sunderland-vs-manchester-city-prize-guess-the-score-its-their-cup-final/ and see which scorelines remain available. I’d prefer you to leave your predictions there but will regard any here as eligible provided they are the first to nominate a particular result. Read on for a [...]
Cup final week, even if technically not, so let’s go early with Guess the Score – and let’s also have a bumper entry … A Caribbean cruise? No. Tickets for the World Cup Final in Brazil? Not quite. That’s the bad news. The good is that the League Cup final Guess the Score is not [...]
Roll up for the great Salut! Sunderland Guess the Score ahead of the visit to the only ground in the world that’s quieter than the Library, aka Highbury.

In the time between starting to write and, after an interruption for a family chore, finishing the article, I reached my [...]
When it gets to the final, we’ll have a special Guess the Score with as good a prize as Salut! Sunderland can cadge from someone. For the dress rehearsal at the Etihad, it’s back to reward-in-heaven mode. Have a go, but just for fun. Anyone who is waiting for a mug won or promised in [...]
We have ever-presents at this site, either every home game or virtually every game home and away. Sixer gets to development squad games, too, and would doubtless turn out even if the Under 7s were playing away to Rhyl. Not all of us can claim similar goodliness. Some live so far away that the North [...]
I may have used that headline before. I hope the last bit – “not 5-1″ – is not only right but replaced in real life by a scoreline starting with 0 and followed by at least 1. Sunderland won’t win 9-1 though I bet they said the same before December 5 1908. Salut! Sunderland is [...]
How many times have I lain awake in far-off parts, mobile phone by the pillow set to silent to avoid annoying Mme Salut but ready to be consulted when Pete Sixsmith’s texts arrive with news of a stream of Sunderland goals?
