Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……. Pete Sixsmith is usually very busy at this time of year, and although he was at the Stadium of Light last night is otherwise engaged this morning, so once again he has asked me to climb on the soapbox for the Salut! Sunderland take on our FA Cup defeat. Make no mistake. […]

Sixer’s Walsall Sevens: Third time unlucky? Maybe not.

Jake

Pete Sixsmith may be busy on the Saturdays before Christmas but on the weekdays he leaves the work to his helpers and heads off to find a game. Luckily for him there are a few coming up. This one, though it might give Pete a break, is one the rest of us didn’t really want. […]

Walsall Who are You: Sunderland ‘pretty useful going forward, less convincing off the ball’

se

Monsieur Salut writes: this is a Who are You? with a difference ahead of tonight’s FA Cup 2nd round replay at home to Walsall. Richard Hall’s Q+A for the first two games – both drawn – between our clubs this season, league and cup, were mightily impressive. Our own star writer Pete Sixsmith thought they […]

The Chapman Report from Walsall: “That second goal never looked like coming”

Bob Chapman: sensing the inevitable

Malcolm Dawson writes……..I experienced a touch of deja vu on the trip to the Bescot Stadium yesterday. I drove into Walsall the same way, parked in the same street and saw the same discarded cardboard boxes and other assorted bits of rubbish on the short walk to the ground that I had seen last weekend.

Sixer’s Cup-tie Sevens: Walsall and Sunderland both make the 3rd round draw.

Jake

Pete Sixsmith wasn’t at the game but he’d arranged for a sub to do his match report and for a seven-word text to be despached at the final whistle. It wasn’t certain I’d get it, however, so Malcolm arranged to send another, which will sub for the sub until M Salut can take restorative action. […]

Salut Banner3(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Sixsmith takes us back to the time when I was just getting into football. Some of the players below became very familiar to me as I saw them play at Roker many times. Others, Peter Wakeham and Jack Overfield, for example, are nowhere in my memory bank though Ambrose Fogarty is […]

Walsall Who are You?: (2) FA Cup memories of Stokoe, Shankly and Alan Buckley

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: by common consent, Richard Hall‘s* interview as a Walsall fan ahead of last week’s league game was as good as these things get. We knew, of course, that an FA Cup tie would follow a week later and, since organising Who are You? features can be time-consuming and frustrating, we cheekily asked […]

Power to Jack Ross; his faith in Max is rewarded

Charlie Wyke courtesy of www.safc.com

This absolutely must be posted. Salut! Sunderland’s gut reaction to Max Power’s sending off at Walsall was along the lines of “what an idiot”. Well some of those connected with the site – and many more beyond it – thought so, anyway. But now the red card has been shown to have been a miscarriage […]
