Keir Bradwell

  John McCormick writes: In the 1960s, when most of the Salut team had just graduated from short pants, about 80,000 people a year got 5 or more O levels, an achievement which was guaranteed to impress not only Grandma but also employers. Now almost 80,000 people are awarded First Class Honours every year. By […]

Jake says: Phew - We're through!

Malcolm Dawson writes…..For this and the next few weeks a few lucky adolescents on North Teeside are the beneficiaries of Peter Sixsmith‘s years of experience of teaching History in his idiosyncratic style. “Does Magna Carta mean nothing to you? Did she die in vain?” (Click here to put into context!) And here for the whole […]

Pure Poyetry: Fulham 1 Sunderland 3: Gus getting the fans back onside

Jake says: Phew - We're through!

John McCormick  writes: I didn’t expect the lineup that started this game and for the second time this season one of the manager’s initial XI was injured in the warm up. A bench which was supposed to have only six ended up with only five and the manager’s choice was limited. But those who made […]

Fulham v Sunderland Guess the Score: positive approach or park the bus?

Guess the Score

Malcolm Dawson writes……a return to a flat back four, a midfield three and two forwards in support of our new striker was an encouraging early sign on Saturday.

Wembley beckons distantly; will anyone bother to go?

Wembley beckons

As the new year got under way I began speculatively looking at ticket prices. I didn’t get as far as train timetables before a virus crept up on me and knocked me sideways. Today, I went out for the first time in over a week. I’m back now, obviously, and feeling the better for it, […]

Pure Poyetry: Sunderland 0 Fulham 0 but it’s not my fault

John McCormick  writes: Jermain  Defoe has a goal scoring pedigree so hopes were high that he’d mark his home debut with a goal against a middle-of-the-road Championship side. He didn’t. Nor did anyone else except Jon Stead, Kenwyne Jones and Darren Bent, who had all made their mark by half time. Oh, sorry, I forgot, […]

Fulham Who are You?: ‘SAFC fans deserve better than constant relegation scraps’

Jake: 'back to Wembley?'

As a decent FA Cup run beckons for someone, we welcome back Russ Goldman*, a USA-based Fulham diehard adjusting to life without Premier League football and therefore without access to live televised games.

SAFC vs Fulham Guess the Score rollover: back on the Wembley trail?

Jake says: 'have a go':

As regulars know, or should know, a rollover stops at two at Salut! Sunderland. We don’t want to annoy our sponsors, Personalised Football Gifts by having them pack threes and fours. But just in case we do get back to Wembley this season wouldn’t it be nice to have that pair of mugs as souvenirs […]
