Salut! Sunderland’s week: Budapest memories, hopes of beating Hull

Jake captures the theme

    Monsieur Salut writes: as many readers will know, I am off to Budapest for the weekend to celebrate my 45th wedding anniversary. Whatever happens at the SoL on Saturday afternoon, I shall almost certainly have to rely on Pete Sixsmith’s texts to my mobile phone to make me happy or gloomy. I try […]

Off we go: Ha’way the Lads at Leicester, the Lasses v Liverpool

salut sunderland jake

Let’s start on a positive note. Our first game of the 2015-2016 season is unlikely to be anywhere near as bad as the equivalent fixture (Leicester away) last time. Or the return game at the SoL for that matter; not a hint of a goal in either match. (more…)

Salut! Sunderland’s Week: bravado ahead of Chelsea, Greatest Escape memories, Rodwell comeback

Chelsea fans in an unfamiliar spot this season.

Standard practice around here is that an admirable band of stalwarts call by every day or so to see what Salut! Sunderland has been up to. Hundreds more, and sometimes thousands, visit the site only when something new appears on newsnow.co.uk’s SAFC pages or a kind soul drops a link at Ready to Go or […]

Salut! Sunderland’s Week: looking back at West Brom, forward to Manchester United

Jake captures the theme

There used to be a feature here called Salut! Sunderland’s Week. As you see, Jake even came up with an image for it. In the end, it seemed too much like hard work, regurgitating the best of the offerings from these pages over the previous seven days or so, especially for those too busy or […]

Salut! Sunderland’s Week: O’Neill In or Out, Norwich blues, confronting Chelsea

Jake captures the theme

A return of the occasional series of week-gone summaries as Monsieur Salut kicks his heels after a fairly pointless guided tour of a thalassotherapy centre 20 minutes out of Tunis – why didn’t they take me to Carthage instead? I have to report that I have so far, 12 hours into my trip, failed to […]

French Fancies: Steed marches on and Nancy fans show Sunderland the way

Jake: l'artist

This week, we combine a very brief Salut! Sunderland’s Week with an even briefer French Fancies … No need to rely on the French speakers in the Sunderland squad – Sess and Mig for starters but who knows what other linguists lurk in the dressing room? – to get the message of this photo, taken […]

Salut!’s Week: gripping Newcastle build-up plus breathtaking Evra/Sissoko/Ribery/Giroud move

Jake captures the theme

A look at our week of derby-related wisdom and fun – and a marvellous 93rd minute climax to the Spain-France World cup qualifying game. There was more – catch Goldy’s analysis of the really big football story of the week (Danny Rose and Serbian racists) and more besides by going to the home page and […]

Salut’s Week: Manchester City opposing view was ‘the best we’ve ever had’

Jake captures the theme

That should of course have been a question in the headline for our occasional – ie not necessarily weekly – look back at the week just gone. The accolade was awarded by Jeremy Robson, who writes here regularly both as a contributor and reader, to a fine set of answers from Simon Curtis, a City […]

  Jake’s way of looking back on a Salut! week Stephen Goldsmith writes: I was slightly confused when I was asked this morning if I had done the Salut!

Salut’s Week: Hillsborough reflections, the McClean tweet and preparing for Liverpool

Jake captures the theme

Much space at Salut! Sunderland has been devoted this week to articles that I am proud to have published on this site but wish had never been written. Naturally, I refer to the impassioned, decent and – yes – angry pieces written by individual Sunderland supporters with voices worth hearing on the Hillsborough disaster and […]
