Bravo England and Sunderland’s Jordans. And now, Allez les Bleus

campo england

Monsieur Salut writes: so sad. England should have been two or three up at half time but lost their way after the interval. Only the sort of toerags who jump on ambulances would deny that Croatia grew stronger and stronger in the second half while England wilted. For Sunday’s final, Monsieur Salut’s personal disappointment – […]

And of those few players who have kept faith with the club? It has been a while since Jeremy Robson appeared on these pages. […]

Jordan Pickford on his goalkeeping heroes: De Gea, Lloris, Hart and Schmeichel

Local lad made very good indeed

Monsieur Salut writes: we’ve acclaimed Jermain Defoe. So has the country at large. Pete Sixsmith’s Observer Q+A talked of a man who, at Sunderland AFC, had enhanced his reputation as a striker and – through his quite beautiful bond with Bradley Lowery – as a man.

Win a trip to the Euros: Hodgson snubs Defoe, who should go?

Jake: 'when will we next see sunny times for Sunderland AFC?'

Win a trip to the Euros … read on Roy Hodgson has probably worked out where Sunderland is on the map but not clearly enough to make him select an in-form striker, who grabbed an astonishing tally of 15 Premier League goals despite playing for a team that spent most of the season in the […]

Birflatt Boy: end the Mignolet love-in. He’s Liverpool’s now, our history

Jake: 'why not, with so many players with SAFC connections in Russia?'

As Birflatt Boy would have it, both Pete Sixsmith and Monsieur Salut have been guilty of wilfully wishing Simon Mignolet well.
