The hot spell appears to be coming to its end in the North-West. It’s cloudy, the temperature has dropped and there’s rain forecast for the weekend.  Nevertheless, we’ll persist with Pete Sixsmith’s summer photo for now, especially as a lot of dark clouds moved away from the Stadium of light on Saturday. We’re not the […]

The Luton Town Who are You? ‘Sunderland for the playoffs, Hatters mid-table’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: our Luton Town interviewee, Richard Armstrong*, is Hatters through and through: ‘I guess it was just in my blood. All my family have supported Luton. There never was any other team for me.’ He readily agreed to answer Salut! Sunderland‘s questions about his club, ours and football in general. Richard  writes for D3D4football.com, […]

Click Jake's image to enter

A sensational 5-0 victory, and Birmingham’s defeat at Preston, gave Keano the title. This is how, 11 years ago, the youthful Salut! Sunderland recorded the win. Less than […]

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: 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…)

  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 […]

The Charlton Athletic Who are You?: ‘Sunderland really ought to win this division’

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: first things first: Richard Wiseman*, our Charlton Athletic volunteer for the first ‘Who are You?’ of the new season wants to say hello to two London-based Sunderland supporters he knows but hasn’t seen in a while. Step forward Mick Coad and Alan Walsh (or anyone reading this who is in touch with […]

Monsieur Salut writes: roll up, roll up to place your predicted scoreline for the opening game of our return to the third tier – or to claim old prizes I somehow overlooked (one Evertonian, Bernard Walker, is in that category and will receive his I-won’t-let-this-change-me award, a mug, for correctly forecasting the dismal result of […]

Welcome Jerome Sinclair. Only a loan but a striker and, at last, transfer news

Plenty of this from the Roker End last night.

Monsieur Salut offers the traditional Salut! Sunderland welcome to a new signing – Watford’s young striker Jerome Sinclair on a season-long loan deal … Like many – most? – supporters, I am less than exhilarated by loan deals. They seem to have played a significant part in our decline in recent years. But it is […]
