Jake: ‘thanks to all who participate’. Click this image to see all of this seaon’s interviews

No one gets to clasp a gold-plated bronze statuette. But at the end of each season, Salut! Sunderland says thank you to the supporters of all opposing clubs by making its own modest version of Oscar awards for best interviews in the Who are You? series.

We call them the HAWAYs – Highly Articulate Who are You?s – and the process has developed into a strong Salut! Sunderland tradition.

Judging is under way for the 2017-2018 season, which has once again produced some excellent features combining the knowledge, passion and wit of ordinary – and occasionally extraordinary – football supporters.

And we again have generous sponsors to thank for coming up with prizes:

* When Saturday Comes: as in previous seasons, the famously half-decent football magazine offers a full year’s subscription. If you wish to check out their Sunderland gear, use this link

* Art of Football: happy to offer a choice between a T-shirt, a print or a gift voucher for £30

From the nominations received so far, entries from fans of Bolton, Brentford, Hull, Derby and – the most recent, so last of the season – Wolves are attracting votes. ALL readers are invited to participate – just look at the generic link and let us know, by way of comment below, your top three (and a few words on why).

Monsieur Salut, seen below in Jake’s adaptation of a Matt cartoon, hopes to announce the winners a week or so after the end of the season. I have awarded this posting five stars – in honour of our interviewees all season long.

Salut! Sunderland is written, illustrated and edited by - and principally for - supporters of Sunderland AFC. The site aims to be sufficiently literate and entertaining to appeal to people who do not follow SAFC but enjoy good football writing.
