Manchester United vs SAFC: recalling a glorious win when Jozy shone too

Jake: 'the moment we cancelled trips to Derby and Leeds'

Four wins in seven games have given us all a lift – and Sunderland a chance. We know Old Trafford presents a stiffer test than Hull, Watford or hungover Leicester at home, or Bournemouth away for that matter. But it is a test to which Sunderland have risen and should be capable of rising again. […]

Chelsea out West: from R&W stripes to Las Vegas blues for Poyet

Jake captures the Bard, with thanks to Owen Lennox

David Millward – universally known as Sid, after his band-leading uncle (Salut! Sunderland’s own Pete Sixsmith was very fond of Sid Millward and the Nitwits) – is a Chelsea fan who has graced at least two Who are You?s at this site. When Sid, now exiled in New England, said he was heading west to […]

Sunderland Season Reviews: in conclusion, hope eternal and thoughts of Harry Hood

Com back tomorrow for the Coventry edition of Pete Sixsmith;s outstanding series on his visits to opponents' grounds

John McCormick writes: while we don’t know what the future will bring, although we know it won’t be orange, we do know what the past was like. It was like the season before, and the season before that. You know what I mean, a typical Sunderland season in which we beat the Mags, had a brush […]

The Robson Report: in Short we could do with another Advocaat

Jake: 'thanks to all have shared their thoughts in this feature'

The whole Salut! Sunderland team owes our old mate Jeremy Robson a huge apology. He was one of the first out of the blocks to submit an end of season review (you can read the rest by following the link below Jake’s image) but somehow it got lost in the ether. Putting things right, here […]

Nil Desperandum: Why relegation will not lead me to despair

Jake: 'so we didn't get Messi after all?'

Malcolm Dawson is of pre-Premiership pre-Sky vintage. He remembers a time when teams like Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest and Derby County could actually win the league. When teams like Northampton Town and Carlisle United could reach the top tier of English football and for a time actually threaten to go top of the league. Of […]

West Ham United vs Advocaat’s Sunderland: Guess the Score rollover

Guess the Score in Derby County vs SAFC. Click on Jake's image to enter. Derby fans welcome to have a go

A new era, even if turns out to be a mini-era, dawns. It is fitting that the first Guess the Score with Dick Advocaat in charge of the team should be a rollover, offering two mugs from which to drink your generous servings of what Wikipedia calls “Advocaat or Advocaatenborrel, a traditional Dutch alcoholic beverage […]

Sympathy for Poyet as Wrinkly Pete turns to Shirley Bassey for reassurance

Peter Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete

The latest crisis at SAFC had Peter Lynn rummaging through all those vinyl discs in his loft again. He dipped his hand into the box of discarded LPs, EPs and singles and out came Shirley Bassey. Let him take up the story; let us hope Dick Advocaat has the Goldfinger touch and that the title […]

Sixer’s Goodbye to Gus: ‘my seat will be empty if SAFC go down …’

Jake: 'this is a real low point for me - and I've been a fan since the Middle Ages'

This is the essential piece on Gus Poyet’s dismissal. Over to a gloomy Pete Sixsmith … And so the deed has been done. The general consensus here in the North East is that it had to be after that performance on Saturday and that the club and the former Head Coach can now move on […]

Ellis Short helps Gus Poyet hop on the bus. But what now?

Jake captures the man and the touchline method

This will be short and to the point. Gus Poyet, as the world and perhaps even Roy Keane’s doing, now knows, has gone. Have your say below on who should come in, on what basis and with what hope. Let’s pray an early announcement makes that exercise academic … there is no time to lose. […]

Axe hovers over Poyet as Aston Villa debacle leaves Sunderland on brink

Jake: 'this is a real low point for me - and I've been a fan since the Middle Ages'

Hate to say it but one of the best pieces of analysis Pete Sixsmith has produced on these pages is his devastating assessment of SAFC vs Villa at http://salutsunderland.com/2015/03/sixers-villa-soapbox-some-constructive-criticism-and-please-go-gus/. Where do we go from here? Today may bring part of the answer … There’s speculation galore that Gus Poyet has taken charge of his last […]
