Not quite viral (2): a small world mourns Salut! Sunderland’s demise

Another of Jake's Salut! banners

Monsieur Salut writes: as the world now knows, Salut! Sunderland’s days are numbered. If you missed the news, it’s here: https://salutsunderland.com/2019/11/the-end-of-an-era-salut-sunderlands-journey-will-soon-be-over/ (and no, I didn’t say Brexit was the reason, just that it was one reason – as you’ll see if you read the piece at that link). The tributes and regrets continue to flow […]

Not quite viral (1): a social media world reacts to Salut! Sunderland’s doom

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

    Another of Monsieur Salut’s messages: news of our imminent demise has touched a nerve. Plenty of people have written about what Salut! Sunderland meant to them and how they’ll miss it. One other Sunderland-related site says our writers would be welcome there. SAFC.com promises room at the club site. It’s all very sad, […]

What you think about Sunderland vs Southend (updated)

Jake: 'time for a Will Grigg hat trick?'

Well, I asked and you’ve started to answer, says Monsieur Salut. Because our Comments section is still inaccessible after recent technical nightmares, I suggested posting your scoreline predictions at Salut! Sunderland’s Facebook group but also invited comments on the bigger Sunderland picture. Since your comments can still be seen behind the scenes if you attempt […]

Wycombe Wanderers vs Sunderland: a good one to win from ninth place

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

At first glance, the League one table makes for depressing perusal. Sunderland and down to ninth and are now eight points behind the convincing leaders, Ipswich Town, with no games in hand. The second glance makes it seem more respectable. We are just one point behind a top six place and have two games in […]

Ross In. A dignified but incisive valedictory: ‘I leave with head held high’

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

A lot of Salut! Sunderland readers go nowhere near Twitter and as one who spends far too much time there, Monsieur Salut can but say: “Bear with me. I am hopeful of finding a cure.” But I must admit I have been flabbergasted by the names that have been more or less officially linked with […]

Sunderland vs Grimsby Town. After Lincoln debacle, will Tuesday’s child be full of woe?

Salut Banner3(featured image)

Trust it to be on an especially dismal weekend for Sunderland supporters for this site to work just as it should: loads of readers, strong comments from our fans, appreciation from opposing supporters and, so far as Monsieur Salut can tell, no sign of the Turkish hackers. It will hardly cheer up Pete Sixsmith to […]

Sunderland vs Rotherham United. A big game, make it a big result for SAFC

Click Jake's image to enter

A good result at Accrington Stanley propelled Sunderland back into the top six. Isn’t the mark of a successful side at any level that it wins even when not playing that well, Monsieur Salut asks? On to Rotherham at home. Who will win? By what score? Tell us below – I am sorry but we […]

Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland: just as we were enjoying a break from football …

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. At the very least, it’s a time to welcome not being too bothered about results. Delighted though I am that England won against Bulgaria, and […]
