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 […]

Relegation poll: Middlesbrough, Hull or Sunderland? Arsenal and Manchester Utd? Vote now

I’m getting a bit tired of the title (and Monsieur Salut should apologise to any reader lured here by thoughts it was a poll on religion; the word inexplicably replaced relegation in the headline when published and still appeared some time later at the newsnow.co.uk site) . But just because we have some decent players, […]

Relegation watch revisted (1): admit it, we fans know nowt about football*

Relegation watch: still looking at Watford, Bournemouth and Norwich, with Leicester hanging on

What a website! On 15th June, in response to my “who went down, who’s going down?”  Dave left a comment which included: “… I think Pearson will, at some point, have a big row with a player or a fan, and the team’s spirit that kept them up will dissipate…” Two weeks later Leicester City’s […]

 Dick by Jake

John McCormick writes: So you’ve been onto the SAFC home page, clicked the appropriate icon and found the fixtures. No need for me to do much then, is there? Only, M Salut, who is travelling today, would be delighted to find the site that carries his name has not ignored this (pretty much) inauspicious occasion. […]
