The Sunderland fanzine born of hope, with a suspiciously Newcastle look

Among all that has been written about Sunderland AFC, there was once a fanzine called It’s The Hope I Can’t Stand. It was launched as the club moved from Roker Park to the Stadium of Light and was a publication destined for an exhilarating but short-lived life. There is no anniversary to speak of, no […]

Fixtures: beat Liverpool, Newcastle, Swansea to lead Premier by Aug 27

The heavies of the Football Data Co stand between Salut! Sunderland and publication of the full […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Fat Lady (Man) Warbles at Newcastle

Talk of getting out of jail, fat ladies singing and clutching at straws dominate these observations on a bitterly disappointing derby performance. We need to do better next year !!!!

Sunderland (1) 1 West Ham (0) 0: Henderson’s class clinches it

Not a game with any great talking points. The referee Martin Atkinson had a fairly easy match, though the booking of Cattermole looked pre-ordained and was certainly harsh.
