Click on Jake's image to follow our buildup to Sunday's Checkatrade Trophy final

John McCormick writes: 1985, Liverpool. Someone in a taxi had kindly left a redundancy notice with my name on it at the door of  my workplace. I had two very young kids. I’d just moved house, only to be clobbered by a series of mortgage rate rises – 13.5 per cent springs to mind – […]

View from the North West Corner: Sunderland U23s v Norwich City U23s

View From

SAFC U23s 1 v Norwich City U23s 1 For some reason the Under 23s had elected to play their home fixture against Norwich at the Stadium of Light, rather than the Colliery Welfare ground in Hetton. I never seem to enjoy U23 games at the Stadium as much, partly because the small number of supporters […]

Sixer’s Norwich City Soapbox: the NHS crisis – no hope Sunderland

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes…….Sunderland spurned two good opportunities to improve their ever decreasing chances of survival last night. The first when Aiden McGeady failed to convert a penalty in the first half and the second with yet another example of defensive frailty in the dying minutes. OK in theory they are still grasping a lifeline that […]

Sixer’s Sevens – Norwich City: as Sunderland let the lifeline slip

Jake: 'Sixer does it in seven words, no more, no less - unless he miscounts'

Malcolm Dawson writes…..things are so bad at the moment for Sunderland supporters that here at Salut! Sunderland M Salut has gone en vacances sur la plage and John Mac is as we speak, jetting away de vacaciones en la playa, leaving me to update the site from a wet and dreary Weardale and Peter Sixsmith, […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: Norwich City

sixsmith writes(sky)-1

John McCormick writes: the cup tie at Carrow Road mentioned below has a certain resonance but I don’t remember the replay. 1968 is very much a time when I’d have been there but there’s nothing, absolutely nothing, that I remember about it. Pete Sixsmith, once again, comes to the rescue. He was there. He remembers it. […]

SAFC vs Norwich City Who are You?: on Grabban, Delia … and Ricky van Wolfswinkel

Jake: I created this in less gloomy times

Monsieur Salut writes: the curtain seems almost down on as bad a season as most Sunderland fans have experienced. Thanks Ellis Short – near the top of the Championship table for money spent of agents’ fees, near the bottom for investment on players and next to bottom of the league when not actually bottom. Martin […]

Monsieur Salut writes: a family holiday looms so this is being prepared between Black Monday, perhaps the defining moment of a wretched season when even a half-decent performance was undone by the usual defensive frailties, and whatever happens at Leeds. I leave it to Salut! Sunderland colleagues to update this introduction as they see fit […]

Most weeks, readers of Salut! Sunderland drop by on Friday morning to catch the latest instalment in Pete Sixsmith’s twin series, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground (if the game in question is away), Team (if it’s at the Stadium of Light).

Sunderland opponents and their grounds: Sixer’s series as good as it gets

Jake's generic Salut gif

    Put it this way. Pete Sixsmith gives a lot more to the football-supporting public than he gets back. He collects bits and bobs of beer money, the odd mug or print or match ticket paid for,  but nothing that remotely reflects all he does, mostly for Salut! Sunderland but also in unpaid appearances […]

Sixer’s Norwich Soapbox: Players are showing commitment to the club and to the support

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith has finally made it home from seat U2 in the Carrow Road football stadium (hence the reference in the introduction to Saturday’s Sevens).  He probably has just enough time to grab some rest before he heads off to Sheffield. But before he gets his head down here he is with […]
