View From The West Stand (featured image)

SAFC U23s 0 Reading U23s 4 I would expect professional football coaches to have a greater insight into the ability and potential of the players they work with on a day to day basis than I do, but when watching the U23s even an amateur like me can get an inkling of which young players […]

Apologies all for the ongoing site difficulties which M. Salut is trying to correct with little or no help from the hosts to whom he pays a substantial fee. I had thought that these were sorted but on my laptop at least, I am unable to either post or read comments.  I have copied and […]

View From The West Stand (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……whilst Pete Sixsmith took a trip up to Ironworks Road to see Shildon record a 6-2 victory over Tow Law in the group stage of the Northern League Cup, I made the trip east to the place of my birth where SAFC U23s were taking on Boldon CA of the Wearside League in […]

Substitute Sixer’s Soapbox: an ultimately shaky win over MK Dons and ‘unhelpful constant criticism’ of Ross

Jake: 'from Spain, it sounded like the classic game of two halves'

Readers will know we have been experiencing technical problems caused by a malicious redirection of certain of our pages to a scummy Turkish escort site. Salut!

Returning visitors to Salut! Sunderland will know that Pete Sixsmith, our regular match correspondent, is a Guardian reading liberal (with a small l) with a well developed sense of decency and fair play but there are a few things that I guarantee will provoke him enough to elicit a barrage of anger and expletives, namely: […]

Malcolm Dawson writes……..others I know will not share my opinions, but as I’ve got older I believe I have developed a healthy attitude to life and an ability to put into perspective things which seem to send others into paroxysms of rage.

Malcolm Dawson writes……..In a week in which a young bride excitedly looking forward to her honeymoon, wakes to find she is a widow and a family man is stabbed to death with a screwdriver in a busy shopping centre, apparently trying to stop an altercation, I find it difficult to put any real significance on […]

SAFC 1 – OXFORD UNITED 1 With Pete Sixsmith doing other things today, it’s me who has drawn the short straw to bring you my take on yesterday’s events. Thanks Pete! You’d think after all this time that I’d give up expecting a dynamic start to Sunderland’s season. OK – last season’s opener against Charlton […]

View from the East Stand of Heritage Park: Bishop Auckland 0 SAFC U23s 4

East Stand View

Sunderland U23s completed their pre-season with a convincing 4-0 win over Bishop Auckland at Heritage Park last night. I spotted Pete Sixsmith in the crowd, but not until after I had nodded a hello to his doppelganger sat in the row in front of me, then wondered why he had not acknowledged my greeting. Perhaps […]
