Jake: 'thanks to all who participate'. Click this image to see all of this season's interviews

It has become a bit of a stuck old gramophone record, Salut! Sunderland‘s pride in a tremendous season of Who are You? interviews with opposing supporters. Judging is at an advanced stage for our HAWAYs – annual awards for Highly Articulate Who are You?s – and with only a couple of sets of votes still […]

Southend Who are You? Marathon man hopes Jack Ross rests key Sunderland players

Southend A

Monsieur Salut writes: this was to have been our promotion party, the last game of the season with a return to the Championship already sealed or to play for. Well, we know what happened to that pipedream. Sunderland can improve their playoff position by winning, and gain a modest boost to morale in the process, […]

Fleetwood Town Who are You? Going to the Stadium of Light ‘wasn’t like going to Clitheroe’

Fleetwood A

Monsieur Salut writes: John McKenna*, our interviewee for the penultimate league game of the season (and if only it could be our season’s penultimate game of any kind), comes to us via Pete Sixsmith and the interest they share in groundhopping. John proves to be a master of restraint and balance when asked about a […]

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 […]
