McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

By now you should have read part one of this series, the preview of the Christmas period which I wrote for the SAFC programme. You might even remember some of the words I wrote, especially the conclusion: “Christmas and early January remain crucial, which for us means holding our own away and completing doubles over […]

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

Regular readers will know that the Salut team make occasional appearances in the official matchday programme. Recent visitors will know that my last contribution came at the end of 2018, when I wrote about my take on the year before the Shrewsbury game. However, that piece only came about after Sunderland had to fit in […]

Malcolm Dawson writes……with the festive season almost upon us and Pete Sixsmith up to the eyes with all that he does on this site, to give the old boy a rest, it falls to me to bring you my take on what went on at a cold and wet Stadium of Light last night. BARNSLEY […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Shaky moments v Barnsley but we take the points

Jake

Pete Sixsmith’s phone was busy from the off, with texts announcing not one, not two, but three goals for Sunderland in the first half hour. Then came the second half, and another two texts, and with half an hour to go I was thinking, “No more texts, Pete, no more”. Fortunately, when one did come […]

SAFC vs Barnsley Who are You? ‘What was that about, Mido?’

Click the banner to see the Who are You? series for this season so far

Monsieur Salut writes: what an enjoyable series Who are You? is to edit this season. I am not suggesting we should therefore remain contentedly in League One, but if you’ve been following the interviews we’ve published so far, you’ll know what I mean. Lucy Dawn* – who makes point of not giving her age, though […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Barnsley, nostalgia and an everyday housewife (honest)

Salut Banner2(featured image)

John McCormick writes: one of the joys of this series (and of its companion for away matches) is elegant prose, another is the pictures and videos which accompany it and then there are the asides that might be, but aren’t always, football related. It’s just a little bit of a magic combination, not to be […]

Barnsley Guess the Score: salute fighting spirit but it’s time to resume winning

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Before introducing Guess the Score, Monsieur Salut has some words to add on the Max Power issue. They are not the words I originally wrote to accompany the article … What I felt and many others felt was the rank stupidity of Max Power, a gifted player enough suspected of possessing the suicidal tendencies often […]

My  “how’s it going?” piece went up on Friday, as per usual over the last few international breaks, and elicited few responses, as per usual over the last few seasons. I had expected one or  two Coventry ninjas (there can’t be many more than two) to pick up the series and comment but it appears to […]

Barnsley lurk behind Peterborough, Portsmouth and Sunderland, while Charlton and Coventry stutter.

With a break this weekend it’s time to revisit our “Ones to watch”. If you’ve been following this series you’ll remember that we’re tracking six clubs over the course of the season. The six were chosen by a people’s vote, that new tool of democracy,  with the club which came top of the poll – Coventry City – […]

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 […]
