The early progress of the new-look Who are You? series, in which Salut! Sunderland simply posts the questions here and sits back to await the flood of replies, had been a little like Sunderland’s start to the season: stuttering at times with some bright patches.

Excellent responses were posted b y Ipswich Town supporters and one or two trickled in from supporters or our opening day opponents, Oxford United. From Pompey and Rochdale, there was total silence, each understandable for different reasons (the Portsmouth buildup coincided with a sharp dip in our readership because of technical problems and our appeals to such sites as Vital Portsmouth for help in spreading the word were ignored (thanks Lads!).

But we shall persevere. Here are the questions for Wimbledon fans. Answer as many or as few as you wish and remember that especially warm, witty or wise replies may qualify for a prize in our annual HAWAY (Highly Articulate Who are You?) awards at the end of the season:

Salut! Sunderland: 1) a return to or near the Plough looms. On a scale of one to 10, how excited are you and what will it mean to the club?

2: do you have any personal or handed-out memories or stories about the Crazy Gang era, that remarkable 14-year stay in the top flight that also included an FA Cup Final win?

3: things are different today but has last season’s Houdini act given you hope, despite a poor start to the new campaign that the new stadium will open to nothing lower than Ledague One football?

4: Rate Wally Downes as a manager

5: and tell us what kind of job you think the Dons Trust does of the ownership

6: your best and worst times as a Dons supporter?

7: which players could make a difference for you this season?

8 : your thoughts on Sunderland: the club, the fans, the city and area and the decline?

9: will you be at our game? What will be the score?

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.
