Egrets, I’ve had a few as the Lads go marching on at Bristol

View From(featured image)

View From the North West Corner (or in this case behind a very wet goalmouth at Bristol Rovers) It is 290 miles from my home to the Travelodge in Weston Super Mare where I’d based myself for the Checkatrade semi final against the blue and white Pirates of Bristol. The drive down on Monday was […]

Do they mean us? How Sunderland fans shocked a Bristol Rovers Gashead

Click on Jake's banner to go to the Salut! Sunderland home page

Monsieur Salut writes: you might struggle to believe it but Doug Shields, a Bristol Rovers diehard, did an excellent and amusing Who are You? interview here before the game at the SoL. This offering also has its entertaining moments. But he doesn’t seem to have enjoyed his brief acquaintance with our fans the other night. […]

As we all now know, the Checkatrade Trophy has assumed an importance the Champions League, the FA Cup and the Carabao can but envy. The semi-final win at Bristol Rovers, courtesy of Will Grigg’s first goal for Sunderland from open play and a second from Lewis Morgan, leaves us Wembley bound. There is still much […]

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I thought we never looked like losing, and I like the way this club is shaping up for the end of the season. That doesn’t mean anything’s done and dusted yet, but as Pete Sixsmith’s post game seven word text makes clear, we have at least one pleasant diversion  to look forward […]

As promised last week, Jim Chappell makes a brief return to give us an extra helping before our second trip to Bristol in a fortnight. How do you feel about that trip? Jim has other priorities, as do we, but I somehow think we’ll be showing a little more enthusiasm than Jim can muster, which […]

Bristol Rovers vs Sunderland prize Guess the Score: Wembley or heartbreak

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

We are long past the stage of pretending not really to care. Of course we want to beat Bristol Rovers and set up another Wembley date. The Checkatrade Trophy may not have the allure of the FA Cup. But the prospect of a massive crowd, given the presence in the final of another side with […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Bristol Rovers can’t stop momentum building

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes:  Another clean sheet, another game with more than one goal. Only Charlton’s last minute winner did anything to mar what was a good day all round. Pete Sixsmith texted at half time that to say that this game was a bit scrappy but his post-game seven worder suggests his full match report […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Bristol Rovers and the Memorial Stadium

Salut Banner4(featured image)

John McCormick writes: this one was pencilled in when the fixtures came out but by Christmas I knew it would be a non-starter. A pity, as a weekend in Somerset with a quick trip across the border would have made for a brilliant weekend at this time of year.  I reckon I’ll just have to […]

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 […]
