Southampton ‘Guess the score’. No mugs here

Salut Banner5(featured image)

John McCormick writes: We make the long trip to Southampton aiming to put a stop to the poor start to the season. And what team will we have out to do it? Kone, do you think, alongside new signing Javier Manquillo? Or perhaps Borini returning to feed and support Defoe? (more…)

The Devil’s Advocate: a SAFC fan prepared to say ‘about time too’

Devil's Advocate(featured image)

Rob Hutchison, master of the occasional one-word, one-mark matchday ratings, returns to devil advocacy, with some strident and, doubtless for some, controversial thoughts on our plodding progress in the transfer window … Hola kiddies . . . .another week in the life of Sunderland’s little devil. Middlesborough. Was it a derby? Of course it was. They’re […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: a long night against Shrewsbury, now long trips to Southampton and QPR

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Not quite 14,000 souls got along to the Stadium of Light for the traditional empty-ground start to a League Cup campaign. Pete Sixsmith was one of them but said, bluntly: ‘For those quizzing, reading, walking or just plain breathing, you missed NOWT.’ But we won, and now have a 3rd Round tie at QPR to […]

Moyes on the boys: playing the sub(s) against Shrewsbury

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick (subbing for M Salut) writes: That Patrick was captain should tell you all you need to know about the team we put out tonight. Still, we won, with what was by all accounts an excellent goal, and head off to Shepherds Bush in the next round. If you do want to know more, however, […]

Sixer’s Sevens: no Yedlin but Sunderland 1-0 Shrewsbury. ‘Corker from Januzaj’

Jake

There has been very little anguish over DeAndre Yedlin’s move to Newcastle. Some of us believe he was worth bringing back, based on his significant improvement towards the end of last season. Others do not rate him, yet, as being of Premier League standard. But with talk of Atletico Madrid’s Javier Manquillo being on the […]

Malcolm Dawson writes….we’ve already a great preview of tomorrow’s League Cup from Shrewsbury fan Carl Jones (read it here). How much we should read into the result, whatever it is, is a moot point, as is how much time David Moyes is allocating to the preparations with the transfer window nearing closure. Now Pete Sixsmith […]

The Shrewsbury view: time for a spot of giant-killing against ‘intriguing’ Sunderland

Jake: 'a chance for the kids to shine - except that they're already being pushed in at the deep end'

We are delighted to welcome a Shrewsbury Town supporter, Carl Jones*, to talk about his club, football in general and Wednesday’s league cup second round tie at the Stadium of Light in particular. Carl wasn’t sure whether he could attend but has now arranged to be there, hoping for an upset against whatever side David […]

Just before we abandon hope, it’s Shrewsbury in the league cup. Guess the score

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

So we had two correct predictions for SAFC v Boro, both from Middlesbrough fans (Smoggie and the WAY interviewee Thomas Keen). There was no prize mug for this match – they may be a bit sparse this season – so they must be feeling a little like those who pick the same lottery numbers every […]

Sixer’s Soapbox: Moyes stews as Sunderland get burned by Middlesbrough

Malcolm Dawson writes…..I nearly didn’t go today. I’ve got a bad back. But my lift arrived early so I struggled into my socks and shoes and did what Lamine Kone didn’t do and trekked along to the Stadium of Light. I’ve moved a row back this season but the faces from last year were all […]

Moyes on the Boys: it’s going to take time

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes. Pete’s sevens were pessimistic but I thought we did OK in the second half and will be fine once we sort out our defence, midfield and attack. What does our manager think, however? Well, to let you know, here’s a look at the letter he sent to M Salut, and maybe one […]
