Moyes on the Boys post Man Utd: both resilient and suicidal

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

David Moyes didn’t have a happy return to Old Trafford as he watched us twice give away possession and then concede. You can find what he thinks of this by sneaking a peek at the carefully crafted letter he wrote to M Salut, and maybe one or two others, immediately after the game: (more…)

Sixers Sevens: Manchester United capitalise on errors

Jake gives Sixer star billing

What would your seven be? Mine would be “Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy, and it cost us”. The truth is we were always chasing the game after the first goal but giving away the second and third killed us, especially as we, as Pete Sixsmith says in seven words …”scored the best goal of the game”.  Pete also sent […]

Happy Christmas to all Salut! Sunderland contributors, readers and supporters

Christmas tree - 1

Crikey. You pushed away the turkey and Christmas pud, took off your funny paper hat and interrupted the Queen’s Speech, Frozen or Paul O’Grady (what, no Morecambe and Wise?) to step inside the pages of Salut! Sunderland. (more…)

Wrinkly Pete alluded to my dodgy numbers in his post earlier in the week so  here’s an overview on our performance to date, along with that of the clubs named in the headline, which were chosen by a free and democratic poll at the start of the season. I’m keeping it brief – only a quick trip to […]

Return of Poznangate: ‘small-time’ pettiness (Manchester United view) or harmless banter?

Crime of the century or inevitable banter?

It’s a familiar question in the ‘Who are You?’ series: what do you think, we ask opposing fans, of Sunderland – the club, the fans, the city and region, David Moyes? This is how Dale O’Donnell, our Manchester United interviewee (he’s editor of the the Stretty News fan site), replied: ‘Yeah, I thought we looked […]

Manchester United vs SAFC: recalling a glorious win when Jozy shone too

Jake: 'the moment we cancelled trips to Derby and Leeds'

Four wins in seven games have given us all a lift – and Sunderland a chance. We know Old Trafford presents a stiffer test than Hull, Watford or hungover Leicester at home, or Bournemouth away for that matter. But it is a test to which Sunderland have risen and should be capable of rising again. […]

Sunderland’s annual escape act: home form will prove the key

Jake, le penseur

Alex McMahon argues that Sunderland’s home form will be crucial to manager David Moyes’s attempts to build on recovery from a dreadful opening part of the season and lead his side to safety … For the fourth season on the bounce, Sunderland endured a poor start to the Premier League campaign. However, unlike in past […]

John McCormick writes: Wrinkly Pete is quite prescient. I was thinking of doing a relegation review before the end of the week and might still do so, depending on what comes down the Salut chimney in the next few days. I know there’s a “Who are you?” due but there may well be other posts – […]

Manchester United vs SAFC Guess the Score: a gift of Christmas present

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

Monsieur Salut spoke with forked tongue. The Watford game was not, after all, the last of 2016 to be marked by a prize edition of Guess the Score. I have decided that even if it means the cat goes without food this Christmas, I will stump up for a mug for whoever is first to […]
