Do they mean us? A Coventry fan sees Sunderland ‘just give up defending’

Salut Banner5(featured image)

First things first, says Monsieur Salut. Laurie Kilpatrick, an excellent interviewee for our Coventry City Who are You?, was not among those in the sky blues section who decided a grand way of celebrating beating us 5-4 was to shower people below the away end with bottles and other missiles. From what I have seen […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Coventry break Sunderland’s record at the Stadium of Light

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Phase One was accomplished midweek, when that single point was enough to move us beyond reach of Peterborough, the only team outside the top six with a chance (and the slimmest of chances at that) to pass us. Phase two will be much more difficult as just about every team we play has something to […]

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith makes reference to events at and around Coventry City FC in this piece. The Coventry Telegraph is a good source of information and includes a countdown clock which will tell you how long it will be until CCFC play their last game at the Ricoh – and maybe in the […]

Sunderland vs Coventry City Who are You? ‘I’m a fan of any club with such a stunning following’

Jake: 'send them back to Coventry - pointless if not naked on horseback'

Laurie Kilpatrick is an innocent man. He wasn’t even an egg, as one of my daughters used to say, on the infamous night that Jimmy Hill – er – orchestrated the perfect finish to Coventry City’s final game of the season, a match delayed by congestion against Bristol City: making sure the players of both […]

SAFC vs Coventry City Guess the Score: the home run

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the banner to have a go

When you are in sight of an automatic promotion place, three successive home games might appear something of a gift. But nerves play a part, too, and often enough this season Sunderland have suffered less in this respect on their travels than at the Stadium of Light, says Monsieur Salut. The first of that trio […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Burton Albion sparkle while Sunderland are flat

Jake

Even though today’s draw does move us into second, is the result good enough? There will be naysayers but, let’s not forget, this was not our strongest side and it was our fourth game in how many days? Surely we’d have taken this  position a month ago, wouldn’t we? Pete Sixsmith’s report will be here […]

The Burton Albion Who are You? ‘Pieman’s highlight of the season – losing 9-0 at Man City!’

Jake: 'Pieman reckons the Brewers will have us weeping in our beer'

Monsieur Salut writes: Burton Albion are a club with lots of virtues but the size of the fanbase is not among them, unless small is beautiful. Finding a Who are You? interview volunteer who isn’t the one we had before, and also the one before that, is not easy. Hence, our latest cap-in-hand approach to […]

Sunderland vs Burton Albion Guess the Score: a night to go second?

He's not in a good mood so no size this time. Click the image to have a go anyway

Towards the end of last season, not quite a year ago so not at the very end, Burton Albion visited the Stadium of Light, won 2-1 and sent Sunderland down for the second successive season. The fact that most of us were already resigned to relegation made it little easier to stomach and the Netflix […]

The Rochdale Who are You? Sunderland should be too good to let Wembley affect them

Monsieur Salut writes: we had to bounce back from Wembley and we did, in some style as you’ll know if you were there or have read Pete Sixmsith’s rousing account of our 3-0 win. Now another Lancashire test awaits. We need to do something similar at Rochdale on Saturday. Over to Ian Wright*, our Dale […]
