Part one of our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was delayed until yesterday, and I’m taking the time to update that post after yesterday’s results. The first part of this one is the same as yesterday, given that […]

Part one of  our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was meant to go out after the Luton game. Repetitive strain injury decided otherwise and I still have to take care so here’s what I’ve managed, with a focus […]

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 […]

Lars Knutsen makes a welcome return to these pages with his view of the season so far, a quick take on the Charlton game that adds a new dimension to Colin’s report and a perspective that I suspect very very of us will have taken as we watch the “will he, won’t he stay” saga […]

Charlton Athletic ‘Who Are You?’ and the statue of a Charlton manager at the SoL

Jake wants answers ...

At one stage Monsieur Salut thought that he might not find a Charlton fan to keep our Who Are You series up to date but thanks to the wonders of social media – and especially the Charlton fan site Into the Valley – the Addicks came up trumps and long term supporter Richard Justham took […]

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

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'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 […]
