Sixer’s Wimbledon Soapbox: mama told me there’d be days like this

SOAPBOX (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……….for the owners of a EFL football club hoping to persuade a consortium of hyper rich American businessmen to invest in its future, then yesterday could hardly have gone any better at the Stadium of Light. The sun shone, the fans turned out in numbers and impressed with the volume and level of […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Sunderland keep the momentum going against AFC Wimbledon

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

John McCormick writes: yesterday Pete Sixsmith’s piece raised plenty of questions about ownership and investment. Underlying them was the question of whether or not we’d go up this season. Have we developed the ruthless killer-off streak that was missing last year? Charlie Wyke’s form suggests we might have but two games don’t make a season. […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

Ipswich or Portsmouth? Rotherham or Peterborough? How about Lincoln or Coventry? It’s your choice

Last season our punters got it more or less right and correctly predicted most of the top six. Luton were missed but that was mainly down to the Coventry Ninjas, whose hijack of last year’s poll pushed them (Luton) out of the top places. Maybe the ninjas or another club’s fans will do the same […]

Rambling through Accrington, Coventry and Ipswich to Lincoln. How do Sunderland’s rivals shape up financially?

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

League One comprises 24 clubs. Three of them, Bury, Bolton and Blackpool, are entering, exiting or plodging in the clarts of receivership. Leaving them and Sunderland aside gives us twenty clubs. I thought I’d take a look at their finances. Nothing detailed, just a skim through any entries at Companies House and a quick perusal […]

Sixer’s Wimbledon Soapbox: McGeady brings relief to aid Pete’s recovery

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……..in yesterday’s programme notes Charlie Methven spoke about the need for all those involved with Sunderland AFC to be seen to be doing their part, if success is to be achieved this season. While he talked about the manager, the coaching staff, the players, the board and the administrators it was really a […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Wimbledon make it hard for Sunderland

Sixer's Sevens (featured image)

Pete Sixsmith sent a text at half-time: ‘A distinctly underwhelming and goalless first half’, at which point I had to head out to the railway station. I suspect, from the little I picked up on my return, that the second half didn’t provide much of an improvement. But we won, and Pete’s instant post-game seven […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Team: AFC Wimbledon

Salut Banner4(featured image)

John McCormick writes. Like Pete Sixsmith I enjoyed watching Wimbledon v West Ham.  But with one eye on the weekend’s  League One results and next week’s fixture I couldn’t help wondering what effect their well-earned win will have on AFC Wimbledon. Will it have knackered them so they can’t compete with our well-rested heroes? Or […]

Wimbledon Who are You? Should that West Ham upset make Sunderland wary?

Wimbledon H

What a result that was, says Monsieur Salut. But why does it always seem to happen like this? A player goes months without scoring, a club keeps losing as if for fun, a manager is sacked … and then we come along. The variation of the theme this time is that Wimbledon,rock bottom of League […]

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, […]

Another One Bites The Dust, leaving many Sunderland fans at the crossroads
