They do not come much easier than Leo Bonatini’s first goal of the season, a mighty Sunderland-style defensive blunder by the Boro defender Daniel Ayala setting up his chance, well as he then took it. But the Wolves striker has been on fire since, his total of nine including five goals in October and that is […]

The Championship cometh: we start with Derby, end with Wolverhampton

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

Monsieur Salut writes: so now we know the who and the when of our Championship opponents for the coming season. We haven’t the faintest idea who will be managing Sunderland, owning Sunderland or playing for Sunderland except that – news update – it won’t apparently be Fulwell73, but the fixtures list doesn’t wait for such […]

Winning becomes a habit as Sunderland beat Notts County. Wolverhampton Wanderers next

Pete Sixsmith then (not so long ago) ... he's a lot trimmer now

Snow in South West Durham ruled out Pete Sixsmith‘s first choice of football on Tuesday evening, just up Busty Bank and along the road from him at Shildon’s own threatre of dreams, Dean Street, but didn’t stop him making his way up to Sunderland for the Under 21s or whatever number you choose at home […]

There’s only one Jody Craddock: Sunderland, Wolves and art

Next season maybe

Jody Craddock was a terrific servant to Sunderland AFC. He went on to play as wholeheartedly for Wolves, so much so that the initially unimpressed Molineux faithful sang one of those ‘used to be s****, now he’s all right’ songs in his honour. Salut! Sunderland is delighted his testimonial match – Wolves XI 4-1 SAFC […]

Captured from Wolves: Steven Fletcher, a hero in the making

After weeks of suspense, Sunderland AFC finally confirmed the signing today of the Wolves striker Steven Fletcher. It is such a welcome announcement that we will even spare SAFC our customary criticism of the absurdity of seeing all kinds of figures bandied about before coyly saying we paid “an undisclosed fee”. But we will remind […]

Goldy’s Logic: Wolves and the £14m Fletcher buy – greed or hard bargaining?

Jake salutes the golden prose

NB. Stop Press: Have we, haven’t we? A tweet which may or may not have been a spoof suggested he was ours, or nearly, Wolves having accepted a ludicrously high bid of £14m for Steven Fletcher – good player, no fault of his that football is bonkers but that would make him worth almost as […]

Goldy’s Logic: calling Wolves’ bluff on Fletcher, laughing at Steve Bruce

A last word, from Stephen Goldsmith, on Tigers ungaggable new boss and a suggestion that calling Wolverhampton Wanderers’ bluff may not cost us the services of Steven Fletcher. As always, and to the annoyance of my friends, I made a series of predictions, in some cases more like theoretical requests, during last season and again […]

The road to glory (2): Liverpool, Wolves close gap on Aston Villa

Another Tony Roffe/Jake collaboration: but do you need to be born in its shadow to support SAFC?

Part one of our report on the judges’ decision in our annual ”Who are You?” awards, in which Salut! Sunderland rewards supporters of opposing sides who offered the best entertainment, insight or wisdom in their responses to the pre-match questionnaire, ended with the leaders lining up like this: Stuart Jinks (aka Jinksy, Aston Villa fan) […]
