Middlesbrough Who are You?: ‘if we score early, SAFC may fall apart’

Boro

Who are You? may be slowly turning into a family affair. After Wrinkly Pete roped in his Bristol City-supporting nephew, Monsieur Salut does the same with the Boro-supporting part of the Randall clan (my sister has lived in Middlesbrough almost all her adult life). Andy Falconer* grew up close to Ayresome Park. He is bang […]

SAFC vs Bristol City Who are You?: ‘awesome Owers, Stead, Martin Scott’

Jake demands a rare home win

Pete Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete, writes: Phil Clarke*, is my nephew and, sad to tell, a lifelong Bristol City fan even though his origins, like mine, are in Sunderland. I did my best to persuade Phil to abandon the Robins for the Black Cats last season when he and his youngest son Red made their […]

Brentford Who are You?: ‘someone’s due a bashing’. Does he mean Sunderland?

Who indeed?

Monsieur Salut writes: Billy Grant* talks about his beloved Brentford the way we all wish we could talk about our beloved Sunderland. They’re a joy to watch, he says, and he really does believe they’re on the point of walloping someone (to be fair, he didn’t actually say it would necessarily be us, but given […]

SAFC vs QPR Who are You?: ‘we’ve had some lovely players – and Joey Barton’

One Jake

Monsieur Salut says: stand by for a sharp, literate analysis of all that is wrong and the bits that are right about Saturday’s opponents, QPR, and what has gone awry for Sunderland. At least half a dozen headline-worthy phrases leap from Clive Whittingham‘s* answers. Clive, a business and sports journalist, is the editor of a […]

Preston North End Who are You?: ‘Grayson thought he was stepping up’

Who indeed?

And now, Simon Grayson and Sunderland’s search for a point or three, as opposed to a search for a point even lower than reached so far, goes on Saturday to Deepdale, the famous old ground of the equally famous Preston North End with its Bill Shankly, Sir Tom Finney and Alan Kelly stands. Mark Collard*, […]

Ipswich Town Who are You?: ‘give Grayson time,’ says Tractor Boy and Merthyr Town fan

Who indeed?

Dave Chamberlain*, a man after Monsieur Salut’s heart when it comes to music, readily answered the call when we launched the search for an Ipswich Town supporter ahead of the game at Portman Road, which those ever considerate folk at the EFL have deemed appropriate for a midweek evening kickoff. Dave supports the Tractor Boys […]

Cardiff City Who are You?: SAFC ‘always seem in Newcastle’s shadow’

Jake

Colin Randall writes: The last time Mike Morris* shared his thoughts with Salut! Sunderland, it was mid-season (2013-14) and he was expecting a 14th top finish for City, bottom place and relegation for us. We drew at their place and then hammered them at home during the marvellous escape act orchestrated by Gus Poyet. They […]

Hull City Who are You? : (2) Arsenal ‘cheating’, toxic Tiger times, ‘new fans’

Jake: 'well knock me down with a feather'

For the second part of Gary Clark‘s* epic replies to Salut! Sunderland‘s questions – in fact not always replies but speeches, so don’t be surprised if the response does not always seem to correspond to the question – we take a long look at the wretched relations between ownership and club. We whinge about Ellis […]

Hull City Who are You?: (1) ‘fans queued to take Elmo to Aston Villa’

Who indeed?

Colin Randall writes: I’d quite forgotten that when the estimable Hull City-supporting author Gary Clark* does Who are You? interviews, his clear intention is to out-Tolstoy Tolstoy for length. It’s great craic and much appreciated. But the sheer torrent of words forces me, not for the first time (Gary has been this way before), to […]
