Leicester winning the league, Sunderland winning a game: finding the best odds online

By Jake

Another of Salut! Sunderland‘s services to the football-loving community, in this case that part of the community that likes an occasional flutter.

not giving up

For Robert Champman, homes games mean a long old haul from the Home Counites. So Lweicester was a doddle. Here are his measured post-match thoughts and a conclusion about David Moyes that may generate discussion.

Moyes on the Boys from Leicester: the same old story

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

David Moyes offers his post-match thoughts. We were well beaten in the end despite Moyes’s justifiable claims that we had previously played reasonably well. Just not good enough, most of us would say. Doomed, we’d then add. Moyes does not go that far, of course … (more…)

Sixer’s Sevens: Leicester City 2-0 SAFC. Decent fight, no punch

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: Sixer was absent again and we had few expectations. Seeing Cattermole in the starting XI and Anichebe on the bench (sent on late-ish) raised spirits, but we knew we were in such dire straits that only a win, with many more to follow, would do. After doing pretty well for an hour, […]

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: much earlier in the season, when hope was young and alive (for some), Peter Lynn, alias Wrinkly Pete, decided to look ahead to all remaining games and calculate how – it was ‘how’ not ‘if’ then – Sunderland would reach his estimate of 37 points and safety.

Leicester Who are You? defending Sri, acclaiming Defoe, missing Kante a little

Who Are You (featured image)

  Monsieur Salut writes: it goes from bad to worse to boorish. Not content with his share of the blame for leading Sunderland’s downward charge to the Championship, our boss is caught – thinking he is off-air – snapping at a BBC reporter, Vicki Sparks, and threatening to give her ‘a slap even though you’re […]

Sunderland and Hull, Middlesbrough or Palace? Swansea or Bournemouth? Not WBA, as Leicester take off

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

When I last reported in with the Salut Sunderland relegation watch we had had some recent wins but were still in the relegation zone, along with Swansea and Hull. (Swansea weren’t one of the clubs chosen in our start-of season poll but I included them in December on the grounds that some people did vote for “another club” and they  had begun […]

Dear David: a devastating critique as Swansea, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth add to misery

Just a few of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images ...

This arrived ‘in the post’ as an entry in Guess the Score for SAFC vs Manchester City and before today’s rather depressing run of scores elsewhere. The author, Tom Lynn, is not just another disgruntled fan – he’s part of the life and soul of the Sunderland fan base, a man you bump into home […]

Thought football could stoop no lower? Think again. Leicester sack Ranieri

Jake: 'you don't talk to the likes of us, Ellis, so how can we be blamed if we get somethign wrong?

It must rank among the most squalid decisions ever taken in professional football, and there’s plenty of competition. No profanity, please, lads and lasses but do have your say on the dismissal of Claudio Ranieri just months after he led Leicester City to its finest hour. (more…)
