Crowing About: why Coleman’s words are cutting the mustard

did he make any difference?

For his second contribution to the pages of Salut! Sunderland,  Martin Crow compares and contrasts – favourably – the Chris Coleman way with words, when talking publicly about Sunderland AFC, with the mix of gibberish, gallows humour, boorishness, beyond-the-pale philosophy and heavy gloom that has gone before … (more…)

But it’s certainly keeping the media busy. BBC Radio Newcastle’s Total Sport programme had the benefit of our Pete Sixsmith’s wisdom last night. He spoke gloomily about our immediate prospects – […]

End of season reviews: (5) left with a sense of foreboding

View From(featured image)

Like Pete Sixsmith, Malcolm Dawson gets to more matches than most people. He’s well placed to comment on skill, systems, strengths and weaknesses. He’s a regular at the Stadium of Light too, which means he’s well placed to comment on them in the context of SAFC. But that’s not all. He’s a keen observer of all […]

End of season reviews: (3) smilin’ like I’m happy, seeking extenuating circumstances

Jake: 'would winning the last four games just make us angrier?'

Colin Randall writes: I commend this epic piece from our associate editor John McCormick, his superbly argued but also entertaining contribution to our series of end-of-season reviews ….   You might be telling people “ it’s a chance to rebuild”.

But M Salut called on Pete to perform a […]

Moyes out? He is now

Jake: 'where do we go from here?'

Monsieur Salut writes: as perhaps the least surprising outcome of the worst Sunderland season since, well, the last worst Sunderland season (think McCarthy), David Moyes is no longer our manager. Some will say he should never have been our manager. I am honest enough to say I welcomed his appointment, much as I would have […]
