Monsieur Salut writes: Peter Allen is my very good pal and partner-in-crime (if that’s the right way to describe our shared trade of journalism) in Paris. He happens to support Portsmouth and, having made it to Wembley, hoped to visit Sunderland for this Saturday’s game. Instead, he will be stuck in France, scouring the internet […]

THIS interview, from just before our 3-1 defeat at Fratton Park in December, was among many items lost when the Salut! Sunderland site crashed. It took an expensive repair job to get back to normal but not everything was salvaged. John McCormick edited and posted the original article so what appears below – restored now […]

Peterborough vs Sunderland Who are You? One manager sacked (and maybe smacked) and luck running out

Monsieur Salut writes: it is known to many of my friends, and to observant readers of Salut! Sunderland, that I had a brief boyhood fascination with Peterborough United, who brought a breath of fresh air to league football after excelling in the Southern League. Does that mean I have mixed feelings about Easter Monday? Not […]

Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers Who are You? Let’s hear it for Zeke

Tom with his

Monsieur Salut writes: Thom Bolton, our Doncaster Rovers interviewee, is a welcome visitor to the Stadium of Light for a game he has been determined all season (like so many away fans) to attend. However, he isn’t nearly as welcome as his little lad Zeke, who will be at his second away match of the […]

Sunderland vs Coventry City Who are You? ‘I’m a fan of any club with such a stunning following’

Jake: 'send them back to Coventry - pointless if not naked on horseback'

Laurie Kilpatrick is an innocent man. He wasn’t even an egg, as one of my daughters used to say, on the infamous night that Jimmy Hill – er – orchestrated the perfect finish to Coventry City’s final game of the season, a match delayed by congestion against Bristol City: making sure the players of both […]

The Burton Albion Who are You? ‘Pieman’s highlight of the season – losing 9-0 at Man City!’

Jake: 'Pieman reckons the Brewers will have us weeping in our beer'

Monsieur Salut writes: Burton Albion are a club with lots of virtues but the size of the fanbase is not among them, unless small is beautiful. Finding a Who are You? interview volunteer who isn’t the one we had before, and also the one before that, is not easy. Hence, our latest cap-in-hand approach to […]

Monsieur Salut writes: we had to bounce back from Wembley and we did, in some style as you’ll know if you were there or have read Pete Sixmsith’s rousing account of our 3-0 win. Now another Lancashire test awaits. We need to do something similar at Rochdale on Saturday. Over to Ian Wright*, our Dale […]

Accrington Stanley-Sunderland Who are You? ‘Get over Pompey, win those games in hand’

Accrington A

Monsieur Salut says: Ian Reynolds-Young* was there for the washed-out first attempt to play this match. He missed Accrington Stanley’s impressive visit to the Stadium of Light but will be there again on Saturday. I hope he is right to think we will win 2-0. Ian is the editor of the Offical Accrington Stanley Supporters’ […]

From Sunderland and Jarrow to Portsmouth and Wembley: meet the renowned Dean family

Salut Banner5(featured image)

> Monsieur Salut writes: by far the best part of the Pompey awayday in December, not least because we lost, was meeting the Jarrow brothers Dean – twins Paul and Stephen, who never miss a game, their Portsmouth-based sibling John and John’s family – in an excellent pub before the game. Thanks to my pal […]
