After Toronto seize cup from Seattle Sounders, could Jozy and Grabban lead our uptable charge?

Sunderland v Carlisle United - FA Cup Third Round

Monsieur Salut writes: what strikers want to do is score goals. The best of them, like Brian Clough, Kevin Phillips and Jermain Defoe among our greats, also have a selfish streak. Above all, they want their names on the scoresheet. Lewis Grabban usually has no one to pass to anyway. But his tally in a […]

Delicious skill from Jozy vs PSG’s Luiz and a Toronto progress report

Jake and Bill

See the caption in Jake’s image. It’s true. That’s what our supporters relentlessly chanted throughout Jozy Altidore’s dark, goal-free days with Sunderland. As we look to Defoe, Borini, Lens and the rest to deliver the goals he couldn’t, a Co Durham exile in Toronto, Bill Taylor, has had a chance to track Jozy’s progress since […]

Sunderland Out West: Jermain vs Jozy. The battle in Toronto looms

Toronto welcome

Martin Bates is our latest Out West reporter to keep an eye on all things Sunderland in North America. Martin, a Canadian with Sunderland family origins, has the advantage of following our next opponents, Toronto, in all games in which they are not playing us, if that makes sense. So he knows all about both […]

‘Dennis’ says ‘Why oh Why?’ Things to ponder in the summer break

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Malcolm Dawson writes….it’s the silly season and all quiet on the transfer front. The Copa America and the Under 21 Euro’s will have something to do with the lack of finalised activity so far and many of the rumours will be no more than that, started by agents and clubs hoping to up the value […]

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 […]

Defoe deal clinched: welcome to the greatest club on earth, Jermain

Jermain: to be remembered fondly

Well, there are those who might argue with that description of Sunderland AFC. But that what SAFC is to us. And we are delighted to be able to pass on the official news that the deal bringing Jermain Defoe to the Stadium of Light has been sealed. He is now a Sunderland player, signed on […]

Sixer Says: let’s offer a fond but grateful farewell to Jozy Altidore

Sunderland v Carlisle United - FA Cup Third Round

The lads and lasses who support AK over in the Netherlands won’t be able to believe it. For them, Jozy Altidore scored goals for fun. Followers of the United States national team generally think he’s the real deal. But back in Blighty, in Hull and Sunderland, we all wonder about the lack of goals (a […]

Sixer’s Hull City Soapbox: Bruce and Marriner bring Boxing Day blues

bugger!

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I called into the Wetherspoons in Houghton to give mine and M Salut’s regards to Hull City fans Raich and Gary, excellent contributors to the Who Are You series but there was no sign – so I nipped into my brother’s for some Cheesy Puffs and a chicken drumstick prior to this one.

Sixer’s Soapbox: winter draws on as West Ham take a point

Jake: 'another draw, this is getting tedious'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..“Don’t be too unhappy going home girls – it’s a long way back,” I cheerfully remarked to two lasses in their claret and blue scarves heading for the North Stand Upper, before kick off yesterday. They probably weren’t, as a point each seemed fair after a decent game where both sides had chances. […]

Graham gone. Jozy going, maybe. But are Wickham & Fletch fixtures?

Catch

I have been worrying for a while about our strike force. Until this week, if we leave aside development squad players, Gus Poyet had four options up front: Steven Fletcher, Connor Wickham. Jozy Altidore and Danny Graham. Don’t laugh at the last name; he’s been on the bench. (more…)
