He will describe each of the 13 managers seen at Sunderland since this site was created at the beginning of 2007. That means he starts by remembering the short, explosive reign of Roy Keane. It […]

Wycombe, Oxford, Coventry and Fleetwood intrude. But what about Peterborough, Rotherham, Doncaster and Portsmouth?

Another international weekend with Sunderland players called up. You might wonder how, given that we’re a League One club and we can barely  score, never mind keep a clean sheet. But let’s be thankful for small mercies, not only does it give the players a weekend without conceding, it also gives me a chance to […]

Sixer’s Scunthorpe Sevens. Sunderland ironed flat

Jake

Pete Sixsmith sent a bonfire night seven word text concerning the probability that we wouldn’t be making a trip to Wembley in the EFL Trophy.  Tonight’s match provided an opportunity to keep the flame alive. Pete was watching  Spennymoor beat Boston  so I coined a seven-word text of my own not long after  Luke O’Nien […]

Monsieur Salut writes: as the world now knows, Salut! Sunderland’s days are numbered.

Not quite viral (1): a social media world reacts to Salut! Sunderland’s doom

Jake: 'why not, with so many players with SAFC connections in Russia?'

    Another of Monsieur Salut’s messages: news of our imminent demise has touched a nerve. Plenty of people have written about what Salut! Sunderland meant to them and how they’ll miss it. One other Sunderland-related site says our writers would be welcome there. SAFC.com promises room at the club site. It’s all very sad, […]

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

This weekend’s game also provided an opportunity to travel on […]

Sixer’s Sevens v Leicester U21: no fireworks, just lots of damp squibs

Jake

John McCormick writes: Readers still cannot post comments. We are continuing to work on it but everything I have tried and suggested to date has failed. Some might say that’s pretty much the story at the Stadium of Light, although we did manage a clean sheet in the League last weekend. Malcolm and Pete bore […]
