It’s a mischievously intriguing thought all the same. (more…)

This will be my final dodgy numbers post of the season. (If you haven’t seen the previous ones you can follow the link above, and/or those below). There is still a game to go, and two questions remain unanswered, but we can now look at the league table and judge how well our start of […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Fulham and Craven Cottage

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I remember a pleasant afternoon at Fulham in the early seventies. In my case it was made pleasant by the few pints of proper beer we enjoyed in the pub on the other side of Putney Bridge and by an away win, which I enjoyed trouble free although esconced with locals. Not […]

Fulham Guess the Score as Olivia, three, asks: ‘Will people laugh at my Sunderland top?’

There IS a prize and you know what it is

After the humiliating if inevitable confirmation of another relegation, we all start to clutch at straws, says Monsieur Salut. My straws today have been Nick Donaldson’s fascinating mix of gloat, as a Mag, and sympathy, as a decent man with plenty of Mackem mates, and now Mick Goulding‘s superb contribution to our annual End of […]

Down and down again. A sorry day to be a Sunderland supporter

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: this is obviously the grimmest evening, in footballing terms, since Salut! Sunderland was created back at the beginning of 2007 (a promotion season under Keano).
