The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Morecambe and The Globe Arena

Salut Banner4(featured image)

John McCormick writes……..the last time I wrote about Morecambe was about 18 months ago when I ventured the suggestion that their off-field troubles may have been ending. I think I was right as the intervening months have seen wholesale changes at the club, which are continuing (their chairman has just stepped down). The one exception […]

The Plymouth Argyle Soapbox: Sixer defers to Marshall’s Lore on a ‘day to cherish’

Jake: 'Stop oress: Sixer stepped off the Soapbox and it's John Marshall in his place'

Monsieur Salut writes: John Marshall can always be relied upon to step in as an admirable substitute on occasions when Pete Sixsmith is absent from a Sunderland game. Sixer did see a SAFC win – Shildon’s ‘best performance of the season’, according the manager, to beat Barton Town 2-0 away in the second round of […]

Sixer’s Plymouth Sevens: two-goal McGeady seals smooth win and second place

Jake sets the scene

Monsieur Salut writes: no Pete Sixsmith at Home Park for Sunderland’s fifth league win on the trot, Aiden McGeady claiming both goals and more crucial saves from Jon McLaughlin, plus some solid defending, keeping another clean sheet before 1,300 travelling fans. And Sunderland are now second top. Sixer’s supersub, John Marshall, provides the seven-word verdict […]

Plymouth Argyle Who are You?: ‘SAFC should win by three or four’

Click Jake's image to see all Who are You? instalments so far this season

Monsieur Salut writes: Mike Arthur* is a salt-of-the-earth Cornishman, so much so that we can forgive him for being not only the president of the Plymouth branch of the Argyle Supporters’ Club but also a supporter of Manchester United. As many will know, I don’t really hold with having a second team (unless it’s Shildon […]

Can Sunderland improve on four successive wins? Guess the Plymouth Argyle-SAFC score

Jake sets the scene

Having hobnobbed at the SoL on Saturday, Monsieur Salut is nowhere to be seen (unless you, too, are in a small French town where Salafists allegedly took over one area). He remains skint. So no question of a prize Guess the Score for Plymouth Argyle. Another multiple winner collects the latest mug, having gone for […]

Sixer’s Southend Sevens: M Salut’s first visit, McGeady’s first goal (for a while)

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: As the only member of the Salut! brigade not at the match it’s left to me to mind the store.  No doubt M Salut will provide details of his trip in due course, and Pete Sixsmith will provide his normal match report, while Malcolm’s observations might come a little later but be all the […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Southend United

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Southend, nope, I don’t think so. I’ve not seen them. This week’s Who Are You guest, Rhys Ellingham, wrote about us playing them in 06/07 but the only time I  got to the SOL that season was on 11th November, when we drew with Southampton, so I missed them by a good three months, […]

‘SAFC for promotion, Southend to emulate Swansea and aim high’: The big Who are You?

Click Jake's image to see all Who are You? instalments so far this season

Monsieur Salut writes: it is not often we get a club official to sit in the ‘Who are You?’ hot seat but Rhys Ellingham*, head of commercial for Southend United, immediately agreed to answer our questions. Rhys says Sunderland won’t be the last big club to tumble through the divisions but predicts a rosier future […]

Sunderland vs Southend Guess the Score. Serve up another win against the Shrimpers

Click Jake's image to enter

Should I offer a prize for the SAFC vs Southend United Guess the Score? Monsieur Salut asks himself the question and cannot decide. The prizeless Donny edition still attracted a healthy enough batch of entries and I am not yet recovered from my bout of skintness, a feeling many readers will know. I think I […]

Sixer’s Doncaster Soapbox: ‘SAFC will win a lot of games this season’

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Another away day (or night), another significant win for Sunderland. Pete Sixsmith expects to see quite a few victories this season as Jack Ross’s resurgent squad continues to impress. There’ll be disappointments along the way but three away wins in a row, if it represents a trend that can be maintained, is automatic promotion form […]
