It began more than 11 years ago as Who are They? and evolved quickly into Who are You?, Salut Sunderland‘s series of interviews with fans of each of Sunderland’s opposing clubs. We’ve had the famous and the not-so-famous, creating a rich archive of often quite outstanding features. There have been few gaps and those that […]

Salut! Sunderland’s welcome to George Dobson – a big midfielder and what’s more, we paid for him

Click the image to visit our home page. Make reading Salut! Sunderland habit

Monsieur Salut writes: at around 8pm, I switched on my phone after landing at Stansted, noticed the signing of George Dobson had been announced and prepared to write our usual welcoming piece on the train into London. Fat chance. The sun had come out and there were no trains. Nor any notice to that effect […]

A frog or a prince? Salut! Sunderland welcomes Marc McNulty

  John McCormick writes: there’s a saying somewhere to the extent that you need to kiss a lot of frogs to get your prince. That has to be true of us. We’ve had Marco, Sir Kevin and Jermain Defoe, and also Darren Bent, but we’ve also had Tore Andre Flo, Asamoah Gyan, Steven Fletcher,  Kenwyne […]

Signing number three is another free, Jordan Willis, 24, a defender who played for Coventry City until the end of last season. Salut! Sunderland is happy to extend its customary warm welcome to a new recruit who describes himself as enthused by the prospect of playing in front of big crowds. (more…)

Sunderland, Bolton and Bury. Our League One financial ramble has to end somewhere.

I didn’t know when I’d get back to this series but it seems appropriate to visit these three now, though matters aren’t completely resolved. In two of the three clubs I’m not sure when they will be, and it’s possible we’ll get to the start of the season first. And that introduces a small problem. […]

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

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

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 […]

Just Blackpool and Bolton, the financial ramble continues without Bury or Sunderland.

one of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images as this is a democratic effort ...

I expected to be finishing this series with a single post. It’s just not possible. While things have moved ahead with Blackpool, they seems to have stalled at Bolton and Sunderland still have to get out of the starting blocks. And as for Bury, their can has been kicked far down the road in the […]

From MK Dons to Rochdale via Oxford, Peterborough and Portsmouth: it’s a short financial ramble

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

It was on 18th June that I put up the first in this series, covering the League One clubs beginning A-L, apart from Bury, Blackpool and Bolton. This, part two, was intended to cover the back end of the alphabet but, at 2,300 words, ended up far too big for a single webpage. There was […]
