SAFC v Newcastle: (5) not trying too hard to love the enemy

Jake: 'six in a row would do nicely, lads'
'

Jeremy Robson is more than disillusioned with Sunderland just now. Just settled in Scotland after returning from Canadian exile, he will be ‘roaring at the telly’ on Sunday but says ’40 odd years of failure punctuated by lesser degrees of failure and no success at all has taken its toll’. That said, he had no […]

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 […]

Middlesbrough and others face playoffs but Bournemouth gatecrash Premier – and Howe

afc bournemouth 2

When AFC Bournemouth swept aside Bolton to win, all bar the shouting, a first season in the Premier, we wondered about asking a supporter of the south coast club to write something.

The Robson Report: Brazil 2014 – overblown, over hyped and over on Sunday

Jeremy Robson

Jeremy Robson is not a man to shy away from a good debate. It could be said that had he studied for the Bar it would have been at the Devil’s School of Advocacy, but his observations are always incisive and well argued. He has been watching the affairs in Brazil with interest and shares […]

The Robson Report: biting thoughts on Suarez

World Cup fever gripping Campo Retro

This should really have preceded Malcolm Dawson’s short, timely piece on the Luis Suarez biting incident. Monsieur Salut had assorted domestic crises, a heavy extractor fan falling in the middle of the night to smash the hob and my Mac’s refusal to accept the valid password for wifi access being only two of them.

Wembley and Safe (3): everything’s not all right

Jeremy Robson

Jeremy Robson would be the first to acknowledge that he does not suffer fools gladly. Woe betide them, as our old teachers used to say, if the fools are currently wearing our red and white stripes.
