Sixer’s Accrington Stanley Soapbox:Wham! Bam! Thank you Stan!

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……what a contrast between yesterday and my previous visit to The Wham Stadium. Less than twelve months ago I got absolutely drenched as we watched the Lads playing for 70 odd minutes in a mud bath before the game was eventually called off. What’s more my car had collected a slow puncture which […]

Sixer’s Accrington Sevens: when the result matters and the team delivers it’s a good day, despite…

Jake

Pete Sixsmith gives us value for money on yet another trip across the Pennines. He sent a pre-match text telling us he had arrived on a warm afternoon, followed that with texts commenting on woeful defending – both ours and theirs – then gave us a seven word text telling us about the first half […]

Sixer’s U23s Soapbox: Sunderland Triumph in Washington DC (Durham Challenge Cup) tie

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……I was trying to decide whether take the car and go to see our U23s in action in Durham last night or walk up to the local for the Wednesday pub quiz, when I decided that I needed to escape the ever pervading smell of some pan fried mackerel I’d had in an […]

Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland Who are You? .. any Stanley fans up for questions?

Guess the Score - but just for fun. Click the banner ..

It would be an exaggeration to say Salut! Sunderland expects dozens of Stanley fans to turn up here and answer the questions below. Our Who are You? feature is in its dying days.   The death of Who are You? is a great shame – well, maybe only a small shame. It’s been fun to […]

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 […]

Sixer’s Accrington Stanley Soapbox: You’ve got to eliminate the negative

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……like a lot of us Pete Sixsmith was underwhelmed by our performance against Oxford and after the Ipswich game he e-mailed me to say that he was becoming disillusioned with SAFC and the game in general. It’s a phase many of us have been through and while I was disappointed by yet another […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Burnley beckons after comfortable win at Accrington Stanley

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes….circumstances meant I couldn’t get to Accrington this evening, which is a shame because despite the rain and the abandoned game on my last visit, this together with Rochdale, is one of the venues I was really looking forward to revisiting this year. And presumably the Stanley Chairman is still miffed with Stewart […]

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 […]

Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland: giving a voice to Stanley fans

Jake: 'the League Cup - an opportunity or a nuisance?'

Salut! Sunderland maintains its idle hands new approach to the traditional Who are You? exercise ahead of Tuesday night’s visit to Accrington Stanley in the Carabao Cup (League Cup still sounds better). Accordingly, rather than go out a search for a winning interviewee, a task that proved desperately hard last season, a shortened version of […]

Portsmouth then Sunderland, Ipswich, Rotherham, Peterborough and Coventry top our poll. But where are Lincoln?

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

On Friday we had over 3,000 visitors, followed by a quiet weekend. Not everyone took part in our top six poll  but over 1200 votes (not voters) have now been cast. That’s not bad, I suppose, for a League One fans’ site but I am expecting a few more will chip in before the season […]
