Part one of our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was delayed until yesterday, and I’m taking the time to update that post after yesterday’s results. The first part of this one is the same as yesterday, given that […]

Part one of  our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was meant to go out after the Luton game. Repetitive strain injury decided otherwise and I still have to take care so here’s what I’ve managed, with a focus […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Sunderland 1 Luton 1. Mazdas but no Maja

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcom Dawson wrote this introduction wthout seeing Pete Sixsmith’s match report: Lee Probert’s performance will undoubtedly dominate the headlines and let’s face it he was shocking. Consistent but shockingly consistent. Even before the penalty and the sendings off he was subjected to chants of “you don’t know what you’re doing” and “you’re not fit to […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland rue lack of killer finish as Luton are gifted a penalty

Jake

SAFC made a return to the Stadium of Light, Pete Sixsmith made a return to the Stadum of Light and Mick Harford made return to Sunderland while Josh Maja didn’t, because he was sick, we’re told. I reckon a few thousand others will have been sick – as a parrot – after an inexplicable penalty which […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Luton Town

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes, I’m  not sure whether or not I ever saw Luton during the sixties. Pete Sixsmith didn’t, so I doubt that I did.  I might have seen them in the game below but it’s unlikely as I was in my first year away and didn’t go back that often. I did go back […]

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

By now you should have read part one of this series, the preview of the Christmas period which I wrote for the SAFC programme. You might even remember some of the words I wrote, especially the conclusion: “Christmas and early January remain crucial, which for us means holding our own away and completing doubles over […]

SAFC vs Luton Town Guess the Score: we won’t get many better chances to go second

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the banner to have a go

We know it. They know it. The Charlton game was important but Saturday’s battle of third-top, Sunderland, versus second-top, Luton Town, is immense. The stakes are perfectly simple. Win and Sunderland go second in Luton’s place, still enjoying a game in hand. Lose and we lose that game-in-hand advantage as the Hatters will have stretched […]

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

Regular readers will know that the Salut team make occasional appearances in the official matchday programme. Recent visitors will know that my last contribution came at the end of 2018, when I wrote about my take on the year before the Shrewsbury game. However, that piece only came about after Sunderland had to fit in […]
