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 – […]

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 […]

It’s all new as Charlton Athletic come to town

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

I last saw Sunderland play in February, at the Macron, when we lost 1-0 in a dire and dreary game. Things have changed since then, not least the playing squad. In fact, in my three previous games I’d seen twenty-eight players starting, and the Charlton game was to add another eight. The only three I’d […]

Sixer’s Charlton Soapbox: breaking the mould of the first day hoodoo

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….this season sees a new chapter in my Sunderland supporting life. This time last year I was in despair at the way the club was being run. I felt marginalised and no longer part of a club whose teams I had followed since I was six and who I first saw play at […]

Sixer’s Charlton Soapbox: the first win is the sweetest

Jake's happy, too

UPDATE: simply click on this paragraph and you will see the full Sixer article Oops. This is a mere sample of the piece that will be published in full tomorrow (Sunday). Some hardly untypical incompetence on the part of Monsieur Salut led the posting to be published prematurely. (more…)

Wrinkly Pete’s Let it Be: music Maja-Gooch, lyrics Lennon-McCartney

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Peter Lynn is a regular home and away. Even home means a slog from afar. Today he was absent; he delays his football season for cricket to finish. But that doesn’t stop him acclaiming our first opening-day win since 2009. And his way of doing so? Same old music … (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 2-1 Charlton. Maja and Gooch seal a perfect start

Click on Jake's banner to take you to the Salut! Sunderland home page - and the best writing you''l find on SAFC 2-1 Charlton

After a disappointing first 45 minutes of our League One season – and let it be one season, for the right reason – goals from Josh Maja and, in the dying moments of the game, Lynden Gooch brought three massively encouraging points against Charlton Athletic. Pete Sixsmith was not alone in representing the Salut! Sunderland […]

  Monsieur Salut says: when the new regime took hold, one of its early observations was that the SAFC matchday programme was, frankly, an embarrassment. That may well have had something to do with the decision, taken as our not-much-missed but highly remunerated then CEO, Martin Bain, penny-pinched his way through the operation, to sideline […]

League One fans probably don’t know that Pete Sixsmith is a member of the 92 club, or whatever it’s called. In fact, given his proclivity for non-league and his propensity for travel he’s probably a member of the 192 club, and for many seasons he has regaled us with tales from around the country and […]
