The view from Abu Dhabi: Manchester City – champions elect

Nick March* is a man of few words, at least by comparison with our first City previewer, Martin Haworth. But six of those words – his projected top four order: Man City, Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal – will delight Martin’s New Age critics who saw his sense of proportion as belonging to another, pre-Abu Dhabi […]

Who are you? An award-winner from Manchester City

Still to come, the view from Abu Dhabi. But let’s begin our build-up to Man City at home on Sunday by welcoming back the winner of the 2009-2010 Salut! Sunderland “Who Are You?” award, Martin Haworth. His responses were described by one of the judges, Mike Amos, himself an award-winning journalist (marginally better than being […]

Another look at Colchester, through Colchester eyes

Abject apologies to the many readers who attempted to visit Salut! Sunderland yesterday only to run into a brick wall of “site maintenance” and “this page not available” messages.

England v Slovenia: a well-connected Slovenian of few words

Roman Jerebic* – or, more splendidly, ????? ??????? – is a man in South Africa, and in a hurry. He was quick as a shot to volunteer to answer questions ahead of today’s England v Slovenia clincher, stressing his own acquaintance with several members of his national team, but then disappeared.

A late contender has surfaced in our Who Are you? awards. He supports Birmingham City but was not on the original shortlist. So he could be either Kevin Ball – their Kevin Ball (left), not ours, and living in Devon – or he could be Leigh Bosworth from the Yorkshire Bluenoses. Or, in the spirit […]
