A thank you from Salut! Sunderland, 10 years old this week

Jake: 'when will we next see sunny times for Sunderland AFC?'

In which Monsieur Salut salutes all those who have sustained Salut! Sunderland and announces a splendid little prize competition … Take a grizzled old Sunderland supporter, a much younger Newcastle fan and the Shotton-born midfielder Tommy Miller. What do they have in common? Ten years ago this week, Salut! Sunderland was born. And the image […]

Happy Christmas to all Salut! Sunderland contributors, readers and supporters

Christmas tree - 1

Crikey. You pushed away the turkey and Christmas pud, took off your funny paper hat and interrupted the Queen’s Speech, Frozen or Paul O’Grady (what, no Morecambe and Wise?) to step inside the pages of Salut! Sunderland. (more…)

Excellent draw against Borussia Dortmund completes exemplary preseason run

Back at the back

Salut! Sunderland and Brexit: the virtue of tolerance

Jake: 'when will we next see sunny times for Sunderland AFC?'

Just as I watch Olivier Giroud and Paul Pogba’s storming finishes (and now the wonderful Dimitri Payet, then Antoine Griezmann) push France into a position of total dominance, making the dream final of Wales v Iceland rather unlikely, a bit of Salut! Sunderland housekeeping needs attending to. This is not, as I have said before, […]

Sunderland and Salut: how do we regain our Quinn/Drumaville peak?

Colin Randall writes: it is not just Sunderland AFC that knows the meaning of struggle. Salut! Sunderland has its moments, too. I am talking readership levels. Victory – and defeats for those who remember them – in the Wear-Tyne derbies always boost numbers, though not as much as they once did. So do John McCormick’s […]
