Salut! Sunderland presents: The best goal I ever scored/never scored

Whimsy(featured image)

John McCormick writes: It was M Salut himself who got me going, but only after Malcolm had chipped in with his two-penneth (one penneth before, one penneth after). Both described goals they had or hadn’t scored in the “comments” area of a short post about the naming of George Honeyman as captain, and the spark […]

Sixer Says: everything you ever wanted to know about Younes Kaboul. And more

sixer says(stripes)

Yesterday (16th July) saw a positively frenetic burst of transfer activity. At least it was in terms of what has gone on so far. One out – the unwanted but recently signed Santiago Vergini off to the climes of sunny Spain on loan. And one in. The announcement that Younis Kaboul had arrived on Wearside […]

Jermain: to be remembered fondly

No Pete Sixsmith at White Hart Lane. The early starts for the Durham branch bus, the cost of a pint in London and the limited prospects of seeing Sunderland raise their game have done for him and trips to most matches in the capital. Monsieur Salut – ticket for WHL burning a hole in his […]

Hutch’s Patch: how SAFC fared at Tottenham, in one word apiece

Jake: ''oh Danny boy! But dont forget Fletch's miss either'

Rob Hutchison declares:‘3-5-2 delivers the same result. Sort the system out and it sorts the season out.’ Then he delivers his one-word verdicts on the Lads, proving himself a much kinder judge of Danny Graham than was Keir Bradwell but using the same adjective for three of what would usually have been the back four […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Tottenham Hotspur 2 SAFC 1. No fairytale for Defoe

Jake pins Sixer to the wall

Pete Sixsmith was for once missing from a Sunderland match, so missed a game that ought to have been saved but ended in cruel disappointment. So the seven-word verdict is supplied by a supersub, Monsieur Salut (the bonus word, making it eight, has been eliminated and a late offering from Sixer himself added). After all […]

Tottenham-SAFC Who are You?: ‘we could have done with Defoe back’

Jake wants answers: see how good this series has been in League One by clicking on the image

The headline was going to be ‘Gareth Bale is not diver, says Tottenham’s Spitting Image joker’, implying that this was a view only a writer of comedy could hold.

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 ...

So, I awoke to an interesting e-mail from my friend Lesley Ciarula Taylor, from the Toronto Star newspaper, which was reporting that Sunderland had signed Jermain Defoe from the Canadian club. The story had been in that well-known fountain or truth and wisdom, The Sun, and tweeted just before I’d turned in; it was an […]

Jake expects 1-0 in that order, or better, on Saturday

Quaking in their boots in expectation of a heroic bounceback from 8-0 – or breezily confident, after coming from behind to beat Anderlecht on Arsène Wenger’s 65th birthday, of adding to our woes?

Sunderland in the Football Blogging Awards: see http://salutsunderland.com/2014/09/football-blogging-awards-make-your-yes-vote-count-for-salut-sunderland/for details Unlike our 13-year-old pundit Keir Bradwell, Pete Sixsmith is not a contender for Young Blogger in the Football Blogging Awards.
