Bolton Wanderers vs Sunderland Guess the Score: more misery or modest redemption?

He's not in a good mood so no size this time. Click the image to have a go anyway

We went early with the latest of Pete Sixsmith’s chronicles of doom from the Stadium of Light. He’s off to watch Rugby League today so sent his piece just as Channel Five’s Championship programme prepared to delight Brentford fans and horrify Sunderland supporters with what are laughingly called the highlights of another calamitous afternoon. Now, […]

Sixer’s Bolton Soapbox: ‘don’t kid yourselves Grayson’s swansong was a six-goal thriller’

Jake says: get yer coat, Mr Grayson

Poor Pete Sixsmith, enduring yet another game in which Sunderland looked every inch relegation candidates, twice trailing to and only then scraping a draw against another side looking every inch relegation candidates. Shortly after the error-strewn match, the glaringly obvious reason for there being no post-match managerial press conference was confirmed. The men largely responsible […]

Grayson sacked. But what do the masters of his misfortune plan next?

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

To no great surprise, Simon Grayson has been sacked after yet another wretched result, 3-3 at home to the Championship’s bottom club, Bolton Wanderers. Nice guy out of his depth or decent manager with all the odds stacked against him by a basket case of a football club. Either way, Grayson is no longer Sunderland’s […]

Sixer’s Sevens. Three apiece as Bolton Wander past our backs at will

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Five hundred years ago Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to a door and started a revolution against the established church. One hundred years ago Arthur Balfour sent the 68 words to Baron Rothschild which led to a revolution in the Middle-East. And  one minute ago, as the final whistle blew, Pete Sixsmith summed up our own […]

One last look at the Bolton match Sunderland m**t w*n

Join

Salut! Sunderland tends to avoid, when it has its thinking cap on, such phrases as ‘must-win game’. It has become one of the more irritating of footballing cliches, on a par with the inability of newspapers and broadcasters to abstain from referring to people who ‘cannot be named for legal reasons’, which is among the […]

Sunderland vs Bolton: recreate the spirit that saw off Chelsea and Everton

Jake: '

Amid all the dross that flows from sportsmen given media platforms, without or perhaps usually with the aid of ghostwriters, a refreshingly incisive summing-up of the awful decline of Sunderland AFC appears in the Sunderland Echo column of Gary Rowell. This hero of Sunderland’s history – his proudest moment as a player for the club […]

Gabe John is our young Bolton Wanderers supporter in the Who are You? interview suite (aka an e-mail exchange). He writes for Burnden Aces, with which fan site we are happy to make re-acquaintance though unhappy for the reason why … and like all supporters of teams we face at the Stadium of Light, he […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Bolton Wanderers

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

John McCormick writes: if you’re old, like myself, Monsieur Salut, Malcolm and Pete Sixsmith, Bolton Wanderers will probably be there or thereabouts in your memories. They are a proper club, with a proper history and I’ve no doubt they fired the imagination of a lot of youngsters in that long ago era of dubbin, casies […]

Sunderland vs Bolton Wanderers Guess the Score: no pressure then

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

Monsieur Salut writes: it is a telling feature of Sunderland’s predicament that away fans, naturally talking up their teams’ expectations, are correctly predicting the results of games at the Stadium of Light. So far, the Bolton Wanderers Who are You? has not landed. I have no idea what the man in the hot seat, Gabe […]

Middlesbrough, Villa, Fulham, Sheffield Wed, Leeds, Norwich top six. Bristol and Burton Albion – ‘nul points’

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

Should I be disappointed? Not with the goings-on at the offices and by the officers of Sunderland Football Club but with the response to my “who’ll be the top six” poll. In 2015 our “who’s going down” poll had over 7,000 votes cast, last year we had over 2,500. This year it wasn’t until events […]
