SAFC vs Burton Albion Who are You?: ‘let’s jump together into oblivion’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: the pain of relegation is not eased that much because everyone expected you to go down anyway. But Dave Child*, who combines being a fully-fledged Brewer with a spot of radio commentary (that’s how he met PDC), didn’t think the season would be as bad for Burton — or us for that […]

Reading vs SAFC Who are You?: dark magic

Who indeed?

Salut! Sunderland is not too keen on anonymous Who are You?s. It seems bizarre to insist on being a nameless supporter but we must respect all choices, especially when we’re the ones asking for favours.

Leeds United vs SAFC Who are You?: ‘glory days may be gone forever’

one of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images as this is a democratic effort ...

Monsieur Salut writes: Black Monday was followed by Blacker Tuesday, the latest home defeat put in grim perspective by Birmingham’s win at Bolton. It all made a mockery of the hope some allowed themselves after the aberration of a Sunderland win at Pride Park. But life of a sort goes on. There’s a prize Leeds […]

PNE Who are You?: ‘stick with it Mackems; you’re a big club with loud, passionate fans’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: thinking Kevin Kilbane had a bit of a raw deal from SAFC fans isn’t the same as thinking he was a rip-roaring success for us. I saw him play badly, but also saw him play well and still be slagged off. To our PNE ‘Who are You?’ interviewee Norm Shilcock*, he’s a […]
