Portsmouth then Sunderland, Ipswich, Rotherham, Peterborough and Coventry top our poll. But where are Lincoln?

On Friday we had over 3,000 visitors, followed by a quiet weekend. Not everyone took part in our top six poll  but over 1200 votes (not voters) have now been cast. That’s not bad, I suppose, for a League One fans’ site but I am expecting a few more will chip in before the season […]

Ipswich or Portsmouth? Rotherham or Peterborough? How about Lincoln or Coventry? It’s your choice

Last season our punters got it more or less right and correctly predicted most of the top six. Luton were missed but that was mainly down to the Coventry Ninjas, whose hijack of last year’s poll pushed them (Luton) out of the top places. Maybe the ninjas or another club’s fans will do the same […]

Rambling through Accrington, Coventry and Ipswich to Lincoln. How do Sunderland’s rivals shape up financially?

League One comprises 24 clubs. Three of them, Bury, Bolton and Blackpool, are entering, exiting or plodging in the clarts of receivership. Leaving them and Sunderland aside gives us twenty clubs. I thought I’d take a look at their finances. Nothing detailed, just a skim through any entries at Companies House and a quick perusal […]

Sixer’s Wimbledon Soapbox: McGeady brings relief to aid Pete’s recovery

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..in yesterday’s programme notes Charlie Methven spoke about the need for all those involved with Sunderland AFC to be seen to be doing their part, if success is to be achieved this season. While he talked about the manager, the coaching staff, the players, the board and the administrators it was really a […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Wimbledon make it hard for Sunderland

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half-time: ‘A distinctly underwhelming and goalless first half’, at which point I had to head out to the railway station. I suspect, from the little I picked up on my return, that the second half didn’t provide much of an improvement. But we won, and Pete’s instant post-game seven […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: AFC Wimbledon

Salut Banner4(featured image)

John McCormick writes. Like Pete Sixsmith I enjoyed watching Wimbledon v West Ham.  But with one eye on the weekend’s  League One results and next week’s fixture I couldn’t help wondering what effect their well-earned win will have on AFC Wimbledon. Will it have knackered them so they can’t compete with our well-rested heroes? Or […]

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 […]

AFC Wimbledon Guess the Score: giantkillers at Sunderland after slaying West Ham

Guess the score

Another game, another prize Guess the Score. Be first to be right, have a UK delivery address and – whoever you support – you will win the mug (a Wimbledon or neutral winner would be found something suitable). We need to start winning again and we probably didn’t need Wimbledon to have a morale-boosting FA […]

Coventry are base as Peterborough join Charlton, Barnsley and Portsmouth (and SAFC) on our watch list

There should have been an update to this series (see the archive links below for the earlier posts) at the start of the season but I travelled up early for the Charlton game, spending the Friday in Leeds before driving on to the North-East, then when I got back home I did a match report to […]

Pete Sixsmith’s back from travel with a football tale to tell. Joy at Gillingham and Kingston then what fortune him befell? He took well-earned refreshment in a Margate watering hole And as he supped he pondered on the tale of Cattermole (more…)

Sunderland, Bolton and Bury. Our League One financial ramble has to end somewhere.
