West Brom, and a regular spot for the irregulars

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Some days it’s good to get out. This season that could be said of Saturdays, which makes a nice change, but for some people it’s also true of Monday evenings, now that normal service has been resumed at the Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground. And just who are those people? None other than a stalwart group […]

Sunderland and Hull, Middlesbrough or Palace? Swansea or Bournemouth? Not WBA, as Leicester take off

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

When I last reported in with the Salut Sunderland relegation watch we had had some recent wins but were still in the relegation zone, along with Swansea and Hull. (Swansea weren’t one of the clubs chosen in our start-of season poll but I included them in December on the grounds that some people did vote for “another club” and they  had begun […]

Wrinkly Pete’s Crystal Ball. ‘If my memory serves me well’

John McCormick writes: Wrinkly Pete often illuminates his posts with reference to old songs which, given most of our readers can remember us winning a trophy, still resonate. He missed one, though, but I spotted it and stuck it in the title. Read on and you’ll find it somewhere in his prose. So this week’s quiz […]

A non-gloating West Brom view and talking Lescott (up and down)

Andrew

Andy Caulton was seen on the pages of Salut! Sunderland before the game between Sunderland and his team, West Brom, at the Stadium of Light on October 1, a afternoon marked by a traditionally bad SAFC start, an second-half recovery and a late equaliser from our joint second-top scorer, Patrick van Aanholt. He did the “Who […]

WBA v SAFC: Rob’s one word ratings – we’re toast kids

Hutch's Patch(featured image)

We weren’t expecting much more were we? The positive predictions in “Guess the Score” were surely the result of optimistic loyalty and the truth is we are a poor side with scant resources and a manager whose best King Canute efforts are not stopping the tide of impending doom. Our single word summariser Rob Hutchison […]

Moyes on the boys v West Bromwich Albion: “We’re not too far away”

Moyes on the boys

John McCormick writes: Were there any positives to take from today? I’m trying to think of some but I’m struggling. I suppose, with Palace losing, that we’re not out of it, which is something David Moyes alluded to on “Radio 5 live” after the game. If I remember correctly he said we’re not too far away […]

Sixer’s Sevens: West Brom 2-0 SAFC. All but Honeyman throwing in towel

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

Monsieur Salut writes: No Pete Sixsmith at the Hawthorns. He wisely gave himself a day off from the drudgery and misery of supporting Sunderland and caught a game (and maybe some decent fish and chips) at Whitby. Another wretched defeat, 2-0 as I am afraid I predicted at ESPN, and we’re where we probably deserve […]
