Jake: 'thanks to all who participate'. Click this image to see all of this season's interviews

It has become a bit of a stuck old gramophone record, Salut! Sunderland‘s pride in a tremendous season of Who are You? interviews with opposing supporters. Judging is at an advanced stage for our HAWAYs – annual awards for Highly Articulate Who are You?s – and with only a couple of sets of votes still […]

Luton then Barnsley, Sunderland, Portsmouth, Charlton and Doncaster? Who knows

This will be my last visit to our “ones to watch* series before the end of the season. You’ll have to judge for yourself whether or not our readership, ably assisted by the Coventry Ninjas**, got it right at the beginning. For my part, with three of the five – Portsmouth, Charlton and Barnsley – […]

Coventry hanging on to Doncaster and Charlton as Portsmouth chase Barnsley, Sunderland and Luton.

Another international break brings an opportunity to revisit the six clubs our readers* and the Coventry ninjas**  chose way back in the summer, and I’ve added Doncaster and Luton Town, who thoroughly merit more than a mention. I last visited this series at the end of January, when I had this to say: “… before […]

Sixer’s Barnsley Soapbox: a good opportunity lost?

John McCormick writes: Games like this have to be taken in context. Lose and we can forget about automatic promotion. Win and we’re back in control of our own destiny. But draw? It means we’re still reliant on other teams dropping points (while Luton widen the gap) but it doesn’t mean we’re out of the […]

Sixer’s Barnsley Sevens: a good Sunderland point on a bad night.

Is anyone complaining about SAFC not scoring? Is anyone complaining about another draw? I’m not and nor is Pete Sixsmith, who was once more on the road. We’ll have to return tomorrow to get his considered view in the full match report, but the seven-word text he sent immediately on the whistle echoes what many of […]

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground: Barnsley’s Oakwell

Salut Banner4(featured image)

Pete Sixsmith was adamant. There simply wasn’t time for a new First Time Ever I Saw Your Ground on Barnsley, not least because we were also in the same division last season and he wrote a perfectly good instalment of the series then. At the time John McCormick introduced Sixer’s piece with a historical note, […]

Barnsley Who are You?: the Sunderland star who’s too good even for this match of the season

McGeady

    Monsieur Salut writes: as has happened all too often, the results on Saturday showed a win for Barnsley, a draw for us. But Tuesday remains an all-important step in our attempt to climb back to the Championship. Those of us who worry about our inability to dominate lesser sides cry out for evidence that we […]

Guess the Scores: amid Sunderland’s Wembley euphoria, work to be done at Wycombe and Barnsley

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

We are all excited about Wembley and 38,979 of us will be there in the designated Sunderland seats on March 31. But let us not lose sight of this season’s key objective: promotion. Two away games loom, Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday and Barnsley next Tuesday. Both are vital. We must do at least as well […]

Part one of our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was delayed until yesterday, and I’m taking the time to update that post after yesterday’s results. The first part of this one is the same as yesterday, given that […]

Part one of  our mid-season review looked forward to the Christmas games. Part two looked at what had happened up to New Year’s Day. Part three was meant to go out after the Luton game. Repetitive strain injury decided otherwise and I still have to take care so here’s what I’ve managed, with a focus […]
