John McCormick, associate editor, writes in the latest of Salut! Sunderland’s  end-of-season reviews (see all contributions here): I only made it to three games. The first saw us exit the League Cup at Goodison, where a weaker than usual team in a struggling club had no trouble in dispatching us. Rodwell played that evening, in […]

Yesterday Bernard Walker expressed his love for Goodison Park.  Pete Sixsmith will understand why, for it is, as he says above and below: “…my favourite ground after Roker”. Read on for an enthralling reminiscence. (more…)

Everton Who are You?: ‘Pickford looks a great signing; Kone never did impress me’

John McCormick writes: I talk to Evertonians most weeks. They tend not to be short of opinions – like most fans – but I don’t know how many of them go to Goodison regularly and I have to take much of what is said with a pinch of salt. That’s not the case with today’s […]

‘I won a few things with them and had a little bit of success’

  No game, and no need – or desire – for a relegation review so soon after the last one, which means I’m taking another meander around the Northwest to bring you up to date, more or less, with some of the clubs on this side of the Pennines. I was going to title this […]

Graeme Holmes* is an Everton season ticket holder whose globetrotting, groundhopping activities make our own Pete Sixsmith seem like an armchair supporter. He’s at a match as a neutral most nights to add to those huge number of Everton games he’s seen over the past 38 years. He has obviously come across Sixer on his […]

John McCormick writes: I was thinking of updating our “Relegation watch” this weekend, seeing as there’s no football on, but with a couple of days to go before the transfer window shuts it feels like it’s too early to complete the “before and after” picture. I could have given you my view of Deloitte’s Money Football League but in […]

Good news from Liverpool (and Everton), sad news from Bolton, and is there a thaw at Blackpool?

No rush to leave

The main thing for Sunderland fans this week must be the cancellation of Adam Johnson’s contract. The club has said it will make no further statement and nor will we. Instead, you can have my ramblings and a mini-tour of the NorthWest. (more…)

Letter from Liverpool: colour blind in Hull, Cardiff and Sunderland

It’s not just M Salut and Mr Sixsmith, not to mention MOTD, who are celebrating 50 years of supporting, as you can see from my photo. It really was a different era then, and not just because televised football consisted of an hour of black and white on a Saturday night. The Land of the […]

How Dare We? A letter from Liverpool (and Everton, wherever that is)

red blue

Colin Randall writes: John McCormick supports Sunderland, of course, but lives in Liverpool. Even if he did not, he’d be entitled to a view about Liverpool/Everton stadium plans. After all, we’ve all been, or most of us have, to Anfield and Goodison. Here is what John makes of the interminable ramblings in Scouseland about where […]

Wycombe Wanderers vs Sunderland: a good one to win from ninth place

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

At first glance, the League one table makes for depressing perusal. Sunderland and down to ninth and are now eight […]
