A champion Championship series: the first time Sixer saw your ground or your team

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

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). This week, the Millwall edition was posted earlier than usual – […]

Sunderland finished a dismal 2017 with an away win. Pete Sixsmith was there to see it and he finishes the year with yet another fine report. Well, not quite, because later today there’ll be another of his “first time I ever..” series.  It should appear just about when you’re returning from the pub and you’ll […]

Hutch’s One-word ratings from Nottingham Forest v Sunderland

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison did his one-words verdicts, passed them to Olivia, who forwarded them to M Salut, who put them into an email in the hope that someone would be able to get them up before tomorrow, which will be very busy. And I just happened to pick up the e-mail. Teamwork, eh. […]

Sixer’s sevens: Nottingham Forest and another clean sheet

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith, back on duty, must have spent a good five minutes applauding. I can’t think of any other reason why his seven word summary took so long to arrive. It’s worth waiting for, however, as it contains a message of hope: (more…)

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Nottingham Forest and the City Ground

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

John McCormick writes: I’ve sort of begun a tradition within this series, of adding material, especially video, that Pete Sixsmith hasn’t come up with himself, although he has provided some great photos. I was setting this one up in advance, hoping as I did so that Pete would include something I could use to keep […]

Nottingham Forest Who are You?: ‘if you drop, it’ll be good for you…’

Click Jake's image to see all this season's Who are You? interviews so far

John McCormick writes: a midwinter journey to one of the proper clubs. Founded 1865, occupying the same ground during three different centuries, and they had the sense to take on the best manager we never had. And then it all went wrong. But it looks like it’s going right again as we welcome Forest season […]

Nottingham Forest vs SAFC Guess the Score: redemption or repeat?

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Let’s not waste too many words. Chris Coleman said his players allowed themselves to be intimidated by Sheffield United. Maybe; we were second best all over the pitch and the game was already beyond us when Asoro and Maja came on. (more…)

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 Nottingham Forest Soapbox: another trial but not of the sheepdog variety

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……”he’s gone too wide, he’s gone too wide.” Memories of Sunday evenings and the voice of Phil Drabble commenting on the fact that Gip, the welsh border collie, wasn’t going to get full marks on the fetch in the grounds of Chatsworth House, where a frisky flock of border Leicesters were refusing to […]
