Wimbledon Who are You? Should that West Ham upset make Sunderland wary?

Jake: click the banner to reach the Salut! Sunderland home page

What a result that was, says Monsieur Salut. But why does it always seem to happen like this? A player goes months without scoring, a club keeps losing as if for fun, a manager is sacked … and then we come along. The variation of the theme this time is that Wimbledon,rock bottom of League […]

AFC Wimbledon Guess the Score: giantkillers at Sunderland after slaying West Ham

Guess the score

Another game, another prize Guess the Score. Be first to be right, have a UK delivery address and – whoever you support – you will win the mug (a Wimbledon or neutral winner would be found something suitable). We need to start winning again and we probably didn’t need Wimbledon to have a morale-boosting FA […]

West Ham and David Moyes: not the warmest of welcomes from Irons supporters

Jake

 There has been a lot of anger and a fair amount of gallows humour among West Ham  fans at the choice of our old friend David Moyes to replace the sacked Slaven Bilic as manager. As far as Monsieur Salut can tell, Moyes has not yet announced that the Hammers are in a relegation scrap. […]

Sixer Says: two cheers for Watmore as Under 23s lose to West Ham

WESTHAMhomeFT

  Monsieur Salut writes: in fact there were many more cheers for a decent 70-minute outing for Duncan. The crowd watching the Sunderland Under 23s against West Ham appreciated his running, his passion and the mere fact that he’s back. If Pete Sixsmith offers two cheers not three, it is because he also noticed a […]

Homage to a West Ham fan: nothing and everything to do with SAFC

Jake

Monsieur Salut writes: Charlie Whebell was just 64 when he died at the beginning of this month. He was not a Sunderland supporter but a Hammer through and through and right down to his solid East End roots. He was a treasured colleague, both in London and Abu Dhabi, and his presence, sparkle and wit […]

  John McCormick writes: I get regular abuse banter from certain people who believe Anfield is a good value, top-class stadium. It isn’t, as I keep telling them, and now there’s proof. But first I must make mention of Huddersfield, whose fans were told – some nine or ten years ago, apparently – that any […]

John McCormick writes: It has been a strange day. First, an e-mail from Pete Sixsmith asking if I’d voted and including and article. I had, but closer examination revealed the article was his report from the Hull game and the e-mail was dated 7th May. Then came an e-mail from Oddbins telling me time was […]

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes………..if you believe the official figures, there were over 40,000 world weary souls at the Stadium of Light yesterday but that statistic includes all season card holders and by the number of pink seats visible, a good number of those had opted for another way of spending their Saturday. Pete Sixsmith wasn’t one […]

Moyes on the Boys v West Ham Utd: ‘we needed Khazri’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: post match, on radio five live, Fabio Borini hinted at changing-room issues. When asked to elaborate he talked about injuries but did nothing else to explain. Was something lost in translation? You might think not, given the way  David Moyes manages to suggest everything’s hunky-dory in his post-match missive: (more…)
