Sixer’s Sevens. Wolves 0-0 SAFC. Point made – and a good one

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith Monsieur Salut writes: Bob Chapman, standing in for Pete Sixsmith (absent on Santa duties), has the sort of home-and-away record of attendance at SAFC games that cries out for a gong in the New Year’s honours list. Today, he saw a valiant backs-to-the-wall display by Sunderland that won an unlikely point at the […]

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……the last time I went to Wolves, if I remember rightly, Stephen Elliot equalised with about 10 minutes to go and it was the last time I was seriously worried for my personal safety at a football match. I had arranged to go with a female friend of mine who had been born […]

Andy Nicholls* , moderator at the Wolves fan site Molineux Mix, is another old friend to this site.

Click Jake's image to enter

The way hope was brushed aside as if no more than a slow, low-flying insect hardly inspires great confidence as Sunderland travel to Molineux, where Wolves are top, 10 points ahead of third place and winning games for fun, the last five of them on the trot.

Wolves star wins player of the month. Grabban far behind BUT …

Lewis Grabban: his goals were dismissed by Coleman as mostly penalties and consolations

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

sixer says(stripes)

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 […]

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”.
