Jordan Henderson and the Liverpool fans’ mantra: ‘he’s not really all that good’

From_Our_Archives_featured _image

John McCormick writes: wasn’t it good to see Jordan Henderson picking up that trophy the other day? It wasn’t his first, either. Way back in 2011-12 he’d been on the winning side as Liverpool picked up the League cup. He’d also been a runner-up in a few competitions (FA Cup, Europa League,  Champions League, Premiership […]

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 […]

Salut Reflections: Westwood, Mignolet and Bramble make for interesting week in Sunderland.

Jake: 'why not, with so many players with SAFC connections in Russia?'

  During Martin O’Neill’s final months as SAFC manager, it became increasingly hard to gather and comment on news for a Reflections piece for Salut! Sunderland, writes Stephen Goldsmith. It seems unlikely Di Canio’s reign will be similar. The end of season is generally a bit of a lull for bloggers and writers, who try […]

Salut! Sunderland’s end-of-season reviews: (7) slower than my 9-year-olds

Texture from Mayang's Textures

In the latest of our end-of-season reviews – the series will end soon with Pete Sixsmith‘s calculations of how well spent his season ticket money was – Goldy says his young charges show more […]

Goldy’s Logic: Wigan’s win over Manchester City good for the heart

Jake as Tony Roffe's caption writer

As we await our own Champions League final against Southampton, Stephen Goldsmith reflects on yesterday’s rousing win by Wigan over Man City that restored some of the romance of the FA Cup 40 finals since our glory of 1973 – and winces at commentary idiocies … (more…)

Don Hutchison: undoubted Mag slayer, but questionable Cattermole logic?

Another of Jake's Salut! banners

Stephen Goldsmith writes, It seems we’re back to the Cattermole debate again. Well, not really. I have made my feelings and opinion known on his importance to the side so Idon’t want to cover too much old ground. It appears, like me, O’Neill is prepared to persevere with his captain despite the potential percentage of […]

Goldy says: O’Neill’s January business suggests wind of change at Sunderland

Jake salutes the golden prose

At the time of writing Sunderland AFC have been linked in the press with a whole host of players, from Peruvians and Argentinians to Austrians and Spaniards – even a self confessed Mag fan but as yet only two signings and one of those on loan. We have also witnessed the departure of several long […]

Goldy on the attack: fuelling the Danny Graham debate

Another Tony Roffe/Jake collaboration: but do you need to be born in its shadow to support SAFC?

As M. Salut and his deputy will shortly be unavailable it may fall to me, John Mac, to keep the site going.  My html editing skills are not what they once were and I’m still finding my way round the control panel so presentation may sometimes fall below the standard  you have come to expect. […]

O’Neill is no longer resuscitating Bruce’s Sunderland: midfield is dead on arrival

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Stephen Goldsmith writes: I refuse to get too carried away with all the doom and gloom just yet – as tempting as that may be! You certainly won’t be hearing me shout for a change in management amid all this poor show of form. The national media are particularly mystified as to why the Sunderland […]

Goldy’s Logic: Is Cattermole to Sunderland what Vieira was to Arsenal?

Jake: 'why not, with so many players with SAFC connections in Russia?'

  When Patrick Vieira smashed his elbow into Darren Williams in the opening game of the season in August 2000, it was an act of aggression we had come to expect from the fiery Frenchman. The subsequent red card that followed was to be his fifth in four seasons, yet amazingly, fast forward two days […]
