Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland: victory would boost confidence for the Pompey test

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

The invitation to supporters of our Carabao Cup opponents, Accrington Stanley, to answer a few questions from Salut! Sunderland has received more or less the response we might have expected. Not one of the hardy souls who follow “the club that wouldn’t die” has taken us up on the offer. The questions are repeated below […]

Ipswich Town vs Sunderland: would a win silence the doubters?

Click Jake's image to enter

Football fans are not known especially for their powers of measured reflection, that ability to take a realistic view rather than jump in at the first opportunity with both feet raised. Or so says Monsieur Salut. Accordingly, the Ross Out chorus has begun. We’ve played all of one game. There are 45 to go in […]

Sunderland vs Charlton Athletic at Wembley: let’s get it right this time

Jake: 'sunnier times for Sunderland AFC'. Click the image to reach Salut! Sunderland's home page

Charlton finished the League One season in style and ended up two places ahead of us, writes Monsieur Salut. Until that poor return of four points from three successive home games, I was confident we would go up in an automatic top two place. It wasn’t to be. We did not end the season in […]

Portsmouth vs Sunderland: crunch time at Fratton Park with Charlton looking set for the final

Jake: 'the mean sod has withdrawn the prize for this week'

Talk about doing it the hard way. We knew the playoffs would be tough and that is how it is turning out, at least for us. To no great surprise, we take a narrow lead to Portsmouth while Charlton grabbed a straightforward 2-1 win at Doncaster – forget the away goals, or absence of them, […]

Southend United vs Sunderland: in search of the winning mood ahead of playoffs

Click Jake's image to enter

Our Southend “Who are You?” interviewee Ian Charnock has expressed the hope that Jack Ross adopts a cautious approach and holds back on selecting key players. But isn’t it important to end the disappointing league programme on a high? A team that has won only one of the last six games is arguably not in […]

Fleetwood Town vs Sunderland. Down to playing for pride

Click Jake's image to enter

It’s over bar the playoffs. Another failure to win ends any real prospect of an automatic promotion place. Drawing at home to Portsmouth didn’t cause this huge disappointment. We had already shot ourselves in one foot, losing that crazy 5-4 game at home to Coventry, and then in the other one after going ahead late […]

Sunderland vs Portsmouth: a question of points no longer in our hands

Guess the score

Even as I wrote last week that we would remain masters of our destiny and go up automatically provided we matched our rivals’ results, I was riddled with doubt, says Monsieur Salut. A quick look at the fixtures at the top end of League One table showed there was no room for the least slip. […]
