Sunderland opponents and their grounds: Sixer’s series as good as it gets

Jake's generic Salut gif

    Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back. He collects bits and bobs of beer money, the odd mug or print or match ticket paid for,  but nothing that remotely reflects all he does, mostly for Salut!

Hull City Who are You? : (2) Arsenal ‘cheating’, toxic Tiger times, ‘new fans’

Jake: 'well knock me down with a feather'

For the second part of Gary Clark‘s* epic replies to Salut! Sunderland‘s questions – in fact not always replies but speeches, so don’t be surprised if the response does not always seem to correspond to the question – we take a long look at the wretched relations between ownership and club.

Hull City Who are You?: (1) ‘fans queued to take Elmo to Aston Villa’

Jake: 'let's be having you'

Colin Randall writes: I’d quite forgotten that when the estimable Hull City-supporting author Gary Clark* does Who are You? interviews, his clear intention is to out-Tolstoy Tolstoy for length. It’s great craic and much appreciated. But the sheer torrent of words forces me, not for the first time (Gary has been this way before), to […]

I was away last week and didn’t log on much, on account of having a temperamental handheld device (a tip – don’t drop your computer onto a tiled surface) and iffy connections courtesy of a not-so-local bar. But log on I did, twice. The first time, it was to find three quarters of our readers […]
