SA’s essay: we can enjoy the weekend, not to mention the journey back.

John McCormick writes: this was surely an “I was there” game, only I wasn’t, I had to make do with the TV. A nervy start had me hiding behind the settee and I found it difficult to watch, even at 2-0 up, but I persevered and managed to relax when young Duncan scored. What must […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Norwich City 0-3 SAFC. Bliss in Norfolk

  Pete Sixsmith bemoaned the 4am alarm call. He was nervy in the buildup, still nervy at half time with the Lads one up. See how he feels now in his seven-word verdicts (two for the price of one). To finish the game on 3-0, comfortably in the end, reflected a fabulous team display with […]

Norwich v Sunderland: Norfolk dumplings, Wearside bruisers and stings in the tail

Jake: get stuck in for a brighter start, Lads

The nerves are beginning to show. Monsieur Salut accepts at ESPN that it’s not Big Sam’s mustn’t-lose, but a clear must-win match. History offers little solace. The task falls to Sunderland AFC, in front of their 15th sell-out away crowd in a wretched season, to raise their games and flatten the Norfolk Dumplings, so known […]

Norwich City Who are You?: squeaky bums when Sunderland come calling

SEE FULL INTERVIEW AT https://salutsunderland.com/2016/04/the-norwich-city-interview-i-fear-sunderland-will-pull-it-off-again/ Malcolm Dawson writes…….where I agree with Big Sam is that Saturday’s game at Carrow Road is a “must not lose”. Where I disagree with him is that I do feel it is a “must win” fixture. Do the maths. If we lose we are virtually dead and buried. No argument. […]

French Fancies: Marseille fans get Steven Fletcher’s goat (and not just his)

Jake: l'artist

Probably for one week only, French Fancies returns to record the latest edition of the Mediterranean exploits of one Steven Fletcher, on loan from SAFC to Marseille … There are worse things footballers can be called than goats, as Olympique de Marseille were during Saturday’s 0-0 draw on Saturday, a 14th home game in Ligue […]

Norwich City v Sunderland Guess the Score: see us through it again

No, it doesn’t all come down to this one game. But if we leave aside the crazy mathematics that would theoretically allow for Newcastle to finish on 43 points while Palace and Watford went down with Villa, we know in our hearts what is at stake at Carrow Road on Saturday. (more…)

The Sunderland Fans Museum: ‘divorce our club? no, we’re wedded for life’

Fans museum

By and large, the day we started supporting Sunderland AFC, is like taking a lawfully recognised partner,’to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health’. The analogy is Michael Ganley’s. He has turned his own lifelong passion into a remarkable initiative that […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: wishing Leicester well – looking forward to Burton

Malcolm Dawson writes….I spent the first weekend of the season staying at my mate’s house in Nottinghamshire. He is a lifelong Leicester fan and back then he enjoyed informing all the Forest and County supporters at the Sunday night quiz in his local, that the Foxes were top of the Premier League. He never expected […]

SA’s Essay: Leicester result disappointing – now Norwich is a must not lose

Malcolm Dawson writes……thanks to Sky TV messing with the fixtures, I passed my season ticket onto one of my young relatives as I was committed to something else in the not so wild commuter belt of Northumberland.
