Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Yes, it’s back. Proper football, I mean, says Monsieur Salut. Along with plenty of others, if probably still a minority, I tend to regard international breaks as weekends without football.

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Salut! Sunderland, like most supporters, has no special insider knowledge of the reportedly imminent conclusion of negotiations with the would-be new owners of Sunderland AFC, says Monsieur Salut. I have been too busy to badger my old colleague Charlie Methven and Charlie would have been too busy or too cautious to shed much light if […]

Will Toney atone? Luke O’Nien cleared but Peterborough man’s simulation stains football

Click the banner to guess the score

HThe hardest bit is trying to enter the mindset of a professional footballer who, during a meaningless touchline tangle after his team has taken an unassailable 3-0 lead, receives no contact to his face but goes down clutching it as if someone has just whacked him with a sideways blow from a sledgehammer. Luke O’Nien […]

A slightly delayed Salut! Sunderland welcome to Laurens De Bock, on loan from Leeds

Salut Banner2(featured image)

Perhaps it was all the whingeing on social media about Jack Ross and the shortcomings of Sunderland’s transfer dealings. Perhaps it was a return, despite all we had to spend to put things right, of the occasional redirection from our pages to a rogue Turkish escort site (if anyone knows of a legal way of […]

Salut! Sunderland’s welcome to George Dobson – a big midfielder and what’s more, we paid for him

Click the image to visit our home page. Make reading Salut! Sunderland habit

Monsieur Salut writes: at around 8pm, I switched on my phone after landing at Stansted, noticed the signing of George Dobson had been announced and prepared to write our usual welcoming piece on the train into London. Fat chance. The sun had come out and there were no trains. Nor any notice to that effect […]

  John McCormick writes: there’s a saying somewhere to the extent that you need to kiss a lot of frogs to get your prince. That has to be true of us. We’ve had Marco, Sir Kevin and Jermain Defoe, and also Darren Bent, but we’ve also had Tore Andre Flo, Asamoah Gyan, Steven Fletcher,  Kenwyne […]

McGeady: Aiden and abetting a new Sunderland promotion push

Jake: 'let's have a revolution - like winning some games'

Monsieur Salut writes: we all love a marquee signing, the arrival at the Stadium of Light of Light of a game-changing player. I have no problem with bivouac signings, as our three new acquisitions so far, all frees, might be termed. As long as Jack Ross and his scouts have done their homework correctly, they […]

ALS, Charlie Methven and ‘a small cabal of so-called supporters’

ch

Close season means silliness, says Monsieur Salut. Our club is ‘linked’ with players no one at SAFC has actually ever wanted. We pursue targets none of the speculation even mentioned. Fans whinge that June passes without marquee signings. They whinge again when the first acquisitions are frees. But at least none of us would be […]
