Mandron, Watmore, Beadling sink West Ham Under 21s. Contenders for the Boleyn?

sixer says(stripes)

When there’s proper football to be had in the flesh, Pete Sixsmith isn’t likely to stay in to watch Man Utd vs Arsenal on the box, with United fans incensed at Michael Oliver’s application of relatively simple laws of the game. He took himself off to Hetton to see Sunderland’s Under 21s in winning action. […]

Dodgy-ng relegation

This post is about relegation, something never far from our minds, and who this season’s three might be. Over the summer I looked over a little bit of history and generated some numbers in order to bring you more of my dodgy predictions. Enjoy them or argue with them as you will. Just don’t nick […]

Are we in the mix for the Money Football League?

For the last couple of years I’ve reported on our progress towards the Deloitte Money Football League. I had just about started an update in February when other things took priority – we had a double to celebrate, then a cup final, and then we started digging what we thought was a grave, only it […]

Salut Podcast: Epsiode 31 – Put Vergini In A Bottle

Another of Jake's Salut! banners

Who’s feeling confident then? The game at Anfield was one I actually feared beforehand. It’s been a while since I’ve actually feared that the opposition were so far ahead of us that the scoreline was destined to be ridiculously high one, writes Stephen Goldsmith. Then, around mid afternoon, rumours filtered through that Gus was planning […]

West Ham Soapbox: Vaughan excels against feeble opposition – Nolan, chickens and all

sixer says(stripes)

Pete Sixsmith has not been the world’s most cheerful chappie this season. He was in decidedly happier fettle after yesterday’s sweet demolition job, finding warm words of praise for the entire Sunderland team, spirited and dominant as they were, and for the fans’ equally spirited mockery of the ineffectual pantomime villain, Kevin Nolan. He even […]

Predictions League: Southampton, Sunderland, Newcastle, Q.P.R, West Ham, Everton – How will they fare?

I realise our massive fan base will be more than anxious to check out the latest Salut! Predictions League table, but they’ll have to wait. Lack of time and a steward’s enquiry into the accuracy of the league table, means I will get to it during the not so festive period. Right in between the […]

Salut Predictions: Sunderland, Everton, Newcastle, Hammers, Wigan, Baggies – How Will They Fare?

Stephen Goldsmith writes: Enough of all this Man Utd v Arsenal and Liverpool v Man Utd nonsense, Wigan and West Brom will provide us with the third fixture to mull over this week.

Salut! Predictions League: Sunderland and Hammers draw, Newcastle, Man United both win

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Stephen Goldsmithwrites: It can be a cruel game this football carry on. Not only did chicken dancing, Sunderland slaying Kevin Nolan nab a point for West Ham against the lads in the last minute on Saturday; he cost me three points in the Salut! Predictions League. How DARE he!  As that gifted 3 points to […]

Stephen Goldsmith writes: I was really tempted to pick some obscure and irrelevant fixture in addition to the lads at West Ham and Newcastle at home to a Michael Turner inspired Norwich this weekend. But as Sky Sports salivate in anticipation of a handshake and a possible lack of respect displayed from a segment of […]
