Salut!’s week: beating Wigan, annoying Villa, welcoming Fulham, advising Kate

No one suspected for a second that beating Wigan Athletic 4-2 at home amounted to a revival. It is not, by itself, even a mini-revival, though another win, at home to Fulham today, would represent one of those. But it came as a mighty relief nonetheless, perhaps ending any relegation fears. For a look at […]

SAFC v Fulham: ‘let’s hear it for Johnny Haynes’

Especially for those outraged by our lapse from republican values, to the extent of running a spoof wedding vows item, it’s straight back to normal business. Late, almost too late, came this gem: a second Fulham “Who are You?”, this time from David Lloyd, editor of the fan site There’s Only One F In Fulham […]

I had discovered that despite his later […]

Big Sam, the pickled poor and Salut: all sick as parrots

This is what the Wikipedia entry for norovirus says: The disease is usually self-limiting, and characterised by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain; and in some cases, loss of taste. General lethargy, weakness, muscle aches, headache, and low-grade fever may occur. It sounds as if that’s what I’ve had since not too long after the […]

The Fulham Soapbox: no outing the Cottagers

Was even X Factor more entertaining that this, without costing £35 to watch? A bore draw with little to relieve the tedium beyond the magnificence of John Mensah. At least Pete Sixsmith enjoyed the pre-match real ale … Last year at Craven Cottage, we succumbed to a Bobby Zamora goal, saw Anton Ferdinand limp off […]

Fulham 0 SAFC 0 Observed: no seasonal sparkle

A draw at Fulham is not a bad result. But it came in a game of few thrills, little quality, hardly any talking points – except the question of whether Mark Hughes told his players to go out and rough up John Mensah in the knowledge of what the loss of the injury-prone centre back […]
