Hail Jermain Defoe, Sunderland and – once more – England

Among the things it seemed impossible to believe, Jermain Defoe’s England recall was up there with “of course the pound will recover from Brexit” and “Sunderland won’t go down”. Monsieur Salut can live, just, with the former being a somewhat improbable development – while allowing himself a mischievous chuckle at what’s it’s done to Magaluf […]

Malcolm Dawson writes……….I never get too worked up about performances such as yesterday’s. I just don’t – ever! I enjoy it when we play well and win and can be as excited and emotional as the next person but my intense disappointment after a poor performance and defeat never really spills over into anger or […]

Jermain Defoe looked unhappy but who wouldn’t? SAFC absolutely must keep him

Jake: 'Jermain, you're a star'

Monsieur Salut writes: I got into trouble with a Salut! Sunderland reader, ‘Maw’ over at Twitter when I tweeted Jermain Defoe and said that while I might understand him wanting to leave at the end of the season, would he please stay for now? ‘Grow up,’ was the gist of my critic’s response and, while […]

Calling Defoe, West Ham, SAFC: (1) stay, (2) dream on, 3) keep

Jermain: a star for both clubs

Sunderland have rejected a £6m bid from West Ham for striker Jermain Defoe, Sky sources understand Salut! Sunderland pays relatively little heed to rubbishy transfer window speculation. In the past, much or maybe most turned out to be untrue, no more than the manipulations of clubs and agents or the imaginations of football journos. But these days, […]

The £5.53m joke: tell Crystal Palace, West Ham £40m couldn’t buy Defoe

Gizza job, Jermain. I'd be a great PA

Like most people, I have no idea what Jermain Defoe’s contract says about his right to leave Sunderland in the event of this or that bid being made.
