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 […]

Peterborough Utd vs Sunderland. Ross’s dilemma as he seeks seven in a row

Click the banner to guess the score

An interesting dilemma faces Jack Ross ahead of Peterborough away. He made eight changes for the Carabao Cup visit to Burnley and watched in admiration as the team came from behind to secure a marvellous 3-1 win and a third round trip to another Premier League side, Sheffield United. There were excellent individual performances – […]

Burnley vs Sunderland: a useful test against Premier League opposition

Click to reach the posting where you can predict the outcome

Sunderland’s record against Burnley was at best patchy even when we were also in the Premier League. Now two divisions separate us and we travel to Turf Moor for a Carabao Cup tie. There are different ways of looking at the game. Chris Maguire’s fine hat-trick in the 3-1 win against AFC Wimbledon will have […]

Sunderland vs Wimbledon. Can we win this one in style?

Guess the score

If you followed the game one way or the other, or saw Pete Sixsmith’s splendid match report here, you’ll know we gained three massive points at Rochdale without covering ourselves in glory. Perhaps we should take comfort in the fact that successful teams have always had a knack of grinding out or snatching results when […]

Rochdale vs Sunderland: aiming to make it three wins in three

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

The most important point to be made about tomorrow night’s game at the Spotland Stadium is that we must aim to remain unbeaten. But a draw would be a disappointment. Sunderland really need to maintain the momentum, indeed the winning feeling, after a comfortable league cup visit to Accrington Stanley and a gritty home victory […]

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: 'we have some good time'

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 […]
