The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Doncaster Rovers and the Keepmoat Stadium

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Yorkshire seems to be cropping up a lot, even though we  left a few of their clubs behind when we dropped out of the Championship.  The truth is there are only three Yorkshire clubs in the third division and we’re playing two of them them close together. I’ve passed through Doncaster on […]

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith has, as ever, written a wonderful article on Doncaster Rovers for his twin series on the ‘first time ever I saw you team/ground‘. It is sheer class, should appeal to fans of both Donny and SAFC and will appear here tomorrow. For now, we have Darren Burke*, a passionate Doncaster […]

For this midweek visit to Doncaster Rovers, Salut! Sunderland reverts to a “just for fun” format for the Guess the Score. The coffers are empty and there’s a backlog of prizes to be ordered for previous winners. Normal service – ie prize mugs – will be restored once M Salut feels less skint and has […]

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

I’m busy today, with stuff to do, so I only have time for some quick thoughts. Don’t forget these are from someone who hasn’t been to a game since the season opener. And don’t forget Pete Sixsmith has already done us his usual masterly report, which you’ll find at this link. (more…)

Sixer’s Shrewsbury Soapbox: Success in Salop

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

  John McCormick writes: It’s only 70-80 miles from home to the New Meadow but three trains meant for a time-consuming journey.  I left home about 9.30 in the morning and got back about 9.30 that evening. In between I had some long waits, a bus ride, a long walk, some excellent beer in excellent company, a […]

Sixer’s Shrewsbury Sevens: 2-0 to SAFC, a comfortable win and that elusive clean sheet

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: this is where Pete Sixsmith offers his customary seven-word verdict on each Sunderland game he attends. He wasn’t impressed by a goal-free first half – ‘poor stuff’ – but found the second half much more enjoyable. It ended with the 2-0 scoreline in our favour that our excellent Shrewsbury Town Who are […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Shrewsbury Town, Gay Meadow and the New One

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I’ve walked past the Gay Meadow ground once or twice and I’ve driven past the New Meadow, though probably before there was a football ground there, but I’ve never been inside either ground and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Shrewsbury play at all. That’s something I’m hoping to rectify this weekend, […]

Click the banner to enter the prize SAFC-Pompey Guess the Score

In the first part of a long interview with Glyn Price*, co-presenter of the Shrewsbury Town podcast Salopcast, we heard about what he calls the ‘massive’ community pride in the club and the highs and lows of supporting a lower league side (don’t expect a Salop fan to thank you for a ticket to see […]

Armchair Liverpool fans ‘can never feel our pride’. Shrewsbury Town Who are You? (1)

Click Jake's image to enter the prize Guess the Score

Monsieur Salut writes: League One is proving a goldmine for Who are You? interviews. Glyn Price* maintains the standards set by several others. He’s the co-presenter of the Shrewsbury Town podcast Salopcast and assists the club’s Supporters’ Parliament. Some great responses await you, but it’s a long interview so has been divided into two. The […]

Barnsley and Doncaster (and Accrington?) push Sunderland down and Walsall out.

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

My  “how’s it going?” piece went up on Friday, as per usual over the last few international breaks, and elicited few responses, as per usual over the last few seasons. I had expected one or  two Coventry ninjas (there can’t be many more than two) to pick up the series and comment but it appears to […]
