Who are you? We’re Liverpool

Hard on Man Utd, even harder on Liverpool’s owners, Gerry Ormonde* is a man who knows his own mind. A Dubliner with his footballing heart across the Irish Sea on the Mersey, he was quick to agree to preview Sunderland’s return to Premier action against his beloved Liverpool this Saturday. Gerry runs Kopblog.com – part […]

Be a star in a Sunderland film (or at least in the script)

Remember the fans who appeared, with varying success, in the fly-on-the-wall television documentary, Premier Passions, which revealed in excruciatingly fine detail the behind-the-scenes goings on at Sunderland under Peter Reid? From Martyn McFadden, editor of A Love Supreme, comes news of another project aimed at capturing the support of SAFC on film. (more…)

Who are you? We’re Manchester United (2)

That’s more like it, Salut! Sunderland said mischievously: a Manchester United supporter in the Red Devils’ heartland of – you guessed – Denmark. But Helge Conradsen* is not just another far-away, never-been-to-Old-Trafford gloryseeker. He heads Denmark’s branch of the MUFC supporters’ club, has 47 years’ service as a United fan, owns a dog named after […]

Who are you? We’re Manchester United (1)

This may be a first. A fan from the City of Manchester has been found, verified as a United supporter and persuaded to preview the game at Old Trafford on Saturday. That was cheap and grossly unfair, or at least United fans would say so. Of course there are Man Utd supporters in Manchester and […]

Who are you? We’re Wolves (2)

If Andy Nicholls played the long ball, with a few elegant runs here and there, our second Wolverhampton Wanderers supporter, Garry Dingley*, found via the Wolves-Mad fan site, prefers it short and sweet. And he grows in confidence as he goes on: an unknown third slot for relegation is filled, a few questions later, by […]

Who are you? We’re Wolves (1)

If no one minds, this week’s Who are you? feature, ahead of SAFC v Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, is an in memoriam edition. It honours David Graves, a Wolves-supporting colleague and great friend who died in a diving accident seven years ago, and Jake, the baby taken by cot death syndrome a year later from […]

Who are you? We’re Birmingham City

It wasn’t that we’d forgotten about the Carling Cup. But tomorrow’s game at home to Birmingham City has crept up on us, and the scurry for a Bluenose to answer a few questions began only this morning. Stepping forward to spare Salut! Sunderland some red faces is none other than Kevin Ball*. Er, no, not […]

Who are you? We’re Burnley

Burnley, “little Burnley”. The dark, satanic north-west as captured by Andreas Andrews. Also, a force in English football in the early 1960s, but a narrow escape from relegation from the Football League in the 1980s. Burnley fans have known thin times and only the older ones can have first-hand memories of a more glorious era. […]

Who are you? We’re Hull City (2)

So, we’ve heard of Gary Clark‘s joy on escaping relegation at Newcastle’s expense; of his admiration for our new recruit from Hull, Michael Turner, and more besides. He does go on a bit about his beloved Tigers, our opponents on Saturday! We originally found Gary through the City Independent fan site (has anyone got a […]
