Walsall Who are You?: ‘genuinely shocked Sunderland are not running away with League One’

Who indeed?

  Monsieur Salut writes: we heard a little from Darren Fellows* after the first of our earlier games against his club, Walsall. This time, his answers arrived as both of us nervously awaited Tuesday night’s fixtures. We managed a draw at Barnsley, a result that was good in isolation but left us still chasing the […]

Barnsley Who are You?: the Sunderland star who’s too good even for this match of the season

McGeady

    Monsieur Salut writes: as has happened all too often, the results on Saturday showed a win for Barnsley, a draw for us. But Tuesday remains an all-important step in our attempt to climb back to the Championship. Those of us who worry about our inability to dominate lesser sides cry out for evidence that we […]

There is no Wycombe Wanderers-Sunderland Who are You? Here’s one we prepared earlier

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: we tried very hard to find a Wycombe Wanderers supporter to talk about his or her club and ours ahead of Saturday’s game. We failed. Jon Dickinson*, our interviewee ahead of the first game, also tried to find a pal who might be up for it. He wasn’t successful either. Sorry folks. […]

Sunderland-Plymouth Who are You? Argyle’s folk-singing fan on what Tommy Tynan did next

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: time for another Salut! Sunderland first. The Plymouth Argyle Who are You? interviewee and I will be sitting next to each other at the match we discussed. That hasn’t happened before, though I did once accompany Melanie Hill (Mrs Coco the Scab in Brassed Off) to a Charlton away game some while […]

The Bristol Rovers Who are You?: ´the day Sunderland trashed our dressing room’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: when this is published, I shall be thousands of miles away in the UAE, somewhere between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I may be celebrating from afar two great home wins to make up for the stumble versus Blackpool. The resident thorn in our sides, Brian, may be eating some of his anti-Jack […]

Accrington Stanley Who are You?: ‘a Sunderland occasion to relish- at the owner’s expense’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: until a day or two ago, it seemed we’d have no Accrington Stanley interviewee for what would have been the return game but for the downpour that forced the abandonment in December. All attempts via e-mail contact and social media to interest obvious or possible candidates in answering our questions fell on […]

Blackpool Who are You?: ‘Roker misery, Stadium of Light joy’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: Phil Corbett* is one of Blackpool’s seriously disgruntled supporters, left frustrated and worn-out by the ‘calamitous’ ownership of Owen Oyston. But it doesn’t stop him being a fan. As he explains ahead of Sunderland’s home game against his side on Tuesday night, this means avoiding home games so as not to spend […]

The Charlie Methven ‘Who are You?’: (1) Oxford heart vs Sunderland heart

ch

Salut! Sunderland wrote at length about SAFC’s executive director Charlie Methven* after he became part of his friend and fellow Oxford United supporter Stewart Donald’s takeover of our club. The vast majority of supporters are probably content with what has happened since. But both have inevitably and understandably divided loyalties as Oxford, having given us […]

Wimbledon Who are You? Should that West Ham upset make Sunderland wary?

Jake: click the banner to reach the Salut! Sunderland home page

What a result that was, says Monsieur Salut. But why does it always seem to happen like this? A player goes months without scoring, a club keeps losing as if for fun, a manager is sacked … and then we come along. The variation of the theme this time is that Wimbledon,rock bottom of League […]
