Sunderland v Crystal Palace prize Guess the Score. Duck-breaking time?

Enter, whoever you support. And don't worry if you are new to posting comments here. If yours is held for moderation - a simple anti-spam device - we will know when it was contributed and, in the case of more than one readers posting the same prediction, who was first ...

Let’s throw another mug into the ring and hope it doesn’t shatter into many pieces. A prize Salut! Sunderland mug – design to suit the allegiance of the winner so Palace fans can enter – is on offer for the Palace game. No one was correct on the QPR score (except our QPR interviewee, John […]

Not quite Real Madrid, not quite Barcelona. But better than Swansea and Stoke

Jake: 'sunnier times for Sunderland AFC'. Click the image to reach Salut! Sunderland's home page

It’s been a few years since I’ve done a timely review of Deloitte’s “Money League”, which usually comes out in January or February (it was January this year). But when there’s a battle to be fought there’s not much room, time or inclination to give some thought to a little piece of meaningless self-publicity, which […]

SA’s essay: A precious point

The flag

John McCormick writes: I do believe Stoke’s goal should have been disallowed after Crouch climbed all over Kaboul. I’m not so sure we deserved a penalty, so maybe things evened up. Whatever, a point away at Stoke is never a bad result and to get one when we weren’t as good as we have been […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Stoke City 1 Sunderland 1: Taking a chance

John McCormick writes: I thought beforehand that we could get at least a point from this game. But as the match went on, and the ref gave us nothing, I thought we were playing into Stoke’s hands and would lose. Then the ref gave us something, and up stepped Jermain Defoe. Over to Pete Sixsmith […]

Stoke City Who are You?: ‘Fancy Dans with a soft centre’

angela

Angela Smith*, broadcaster, Supporters’ Council leader and former squash pro, is as Stoke as they come, a fan – she says – from birth, so precocious, too. She was quite enjoying the season until recent bad results, and expects Sunderland to snatch a draw on Saturday. Ideally, we need better than that but we’ll see. […]

Stoke City v SAFC Guess the Score. Not a weekend for the faint-hearted

It should not get much more nailbiting than this – but it may well do so between now and Watford away on the last day of the season. The weekend threatens to be tricky. Who would put it past an Alan Pardew side to roll over at St James’ Park, assuming he dislikes us more […]

Stoke’s Shawcross, Arsenal’s Ramsey and a debate that won’t go away

How dare we

Credit: Musa Göncüo?lu Football fans can be mightily sensitive given their reputation for boisterous irreverence. Case in point: the recent debate here about the changing face of Stoke City, inspired by Pete Sixsmith’s whimsical article about wishing he could wake up as a supporter of that club and not the one he’s followed for half […]

Why can’t we just be Stoke City fans instead of suffering with SAFC?

still to come.

Let’s be honest. We love Stoke City for beating the Mags this week, allowing us to start the weekend out of the bottom three. We haven’t always loved them. It had something to do with the way Stoke seemed to cling on to the hooligan age longer than most, the muscular nature of Tony Pulis’s […]

Sunderland’s Desert Island Discs – Wrinkly Pete’s playlist

turn it round, matey, we're over here too!

John McCormick asks: Do you remember, at least three managers back, so it must be years and years (or perhaps 18 months) ago, when I did an end of season piece about the songs that made the season. Now Peter Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete, has picked up the theme with his own version of Desert Island discs. In […]
