View from the West Stand: Burton Brewers leave Sunderland fans with bitter taste

VFWS

Jake: The darkest of dark days. Martin Harvey RIP. Burton Albion came to Wearside knowing that they had never lost there and left with that record intact. The result left the home side in their lowest ever position since joining the Football League in 1890, after a performance which was as grim as the weather. […]

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 […]

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! Sunderland is now more secure (at a hefty price) but neither that, nor as much self-help and professional cleansing as we have been able to do without further expenditure, […]

View From The West Stand (featured image)

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: […]

Should’ve, Could’ve, Might’ve: Sunderland v Rotherham from sublime to ridiculous

View From The West Stand (featured image)

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 […]

View From The West Stand (featured image)

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 […]

In contrast to some other websites and social media platforms, contributors to Salut! Sunderland, whether in the main body of text or in the comments sections, tend to make reasoned arguments and are prepared to respect the opinions of others and discuss issues, rather than indulge in polemics. The season has come to a disappointing […]
