In case you missed the Liverpool vs Sunderland ‘Who are You?’

Jake: roaring the Lads on to victory

HAPPY NEW YEAR It is not often that a Who are You? interview is re-posted. On this occasion, 24 hours (23 actually) ahead of our home game against Liverpool, it seems a natural thing to do. Why? Well, it’s a good interview but that alone wouldn’t be enough. Nor would the fact that not all […]

Sunderland wishes all readers, including those who contribute to its pages, a very happy new year … Monsieur Salut writes: surely no football team sets out to play as woefully as ours did at Burnley yesterday.

Burnley and Liverpool Guess the Scores. Prizes at the treble

Guess the Score

Liverpool’s ultimately easy 4-1 win against Stoke City confirms what we already knew – that Monday’s game against Jurgen Klopp’s side will be tough. Even if Simon Mignolet keeps his place and makes more errors than usual, they have bags of goals in them. That makes Saturday’s game all the more important. The good work of […]

Manchester United 3-1 Sunderland. Nowhere near the end of the world

MANUawayFT

  If we can go on scoring goals like this, from Fabio Borini and only by then for pride and goal difference, we’ll be all right. Having spent Christmas in France – just three nights – I was driving home when the match against Manchester United kicked off. I’d boldly gone for 1-1 at ESPN […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 0-1 Chelsea. Good, not quite good enough

Jake gives Sixer star billing

Monsieur Salut writes: Pete Sixsmith returned from Santa duties to Salut! Sunderland duties, expected little by way of Ho Ho Hos and – after praising a competitive approach – rued the ‘shambles’ of the defending leading to the Fabregas winner, well taken as it was. Sunderland had chances – two to an improving Januzaj – […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland 2-1 Leicester. Mighty Anichebe, mighty result

Jake: 'terrific all-round efforts, Lads'

Monsieur Salut writes: what a massive win. Jermain Defoe added to Robert Huth’s own goal to provide the cushion, a fabulous last-minute save from Jordan Pickford cut Leicester’s recovery short and the return of Jan Kirchhoff and Seb Larsson was crucial to the second-half breakthrough. Pete Sixsmith had donned red and white, headed up past […]
