Sunderland and Playoffs. Part 4: Newcastle and a memory to savour

Salut Banner2(featured image)

What are your best memories as a Sunderland supporter? As an exile I haven’t been to the SOL many times but I did see us win three and six times in a row, and though I was at Wembley in 1973 the semifinal is more lodged in my memory. That’s four games, to which I […]

It would have been a fine night in the city centre. All this season and last, Pete Sixsmith has brought us his […]

Sixer’s Checkatrade Sevens: cruise to victory puts SAFC-Newcastle U21 out of way

Jake's stern view of the game

Pete Sixsmith is recovering after his recent op but felt it wiser to give a miss to SAFC vs whoever might be representing the Mags. In his place, possibly in his actual place at the SoL, Salut! Sunderland‘s Malcolm Dawson took the armband for the seven word verdict. (more…)

View from the North West Corner: Black Cats on a hiding to nothing in Checkatrade

SUNDERLAND AFC v NEWCASTLE U21s This was the tie few people wanted. Certainly not Northumbria Police, who will have to divert considerable resources away from other areas, because of a game of football that will attract a far bigger crowd than any other fixture in the competition to date and has the potential for disorder.

Who Sixer met in Cornwall: likeable Newcastle fans, Cardiff minus Lee Camp

sixer says(stripes)

Yes, if you were thinking this has already appeared, you were right. Monsieur Salut identified a technical issue with the original and decided to republish … this therefore supersedes the first one, and any Comments should be posted here Pete Sixsmith missed a Sunderland game.

The great debate: Newcastle-SAFC is a derby, Middlesbrough’s not’. You decide

Join

Is Middlesbrough vs Sunderland a derby or just a match between teams not that far apart geographically? Monsieur Salut writes: it is a simple enough if inconsequential issue. I think it is a derby, Bill Harris – an SAFC stalwart, Salut! Sunderland reader and occasional Guess the Score winner – is adamant it is not. […]

Monsieur Salut writes: people sometimes tell me, whoever they support, that they like Salut! Sunderland because it tries to bring smiles to people’s faces. No matter what! There is no football, apart from Sunderland’s Ladies Team in their SSE Women’s FA Cup semi-final cup game against Chelsea on Sunday, between now and Watford away. So, […]

Barnes and Benno: eloquence meets passion, football inspires art

The Nick Barnes Matchbook

We have been wanting a chat with Nick Barnes and Gary Bennett for a while. In some ways an unlikely pair, the tweed-loving culture vulture with a passion for the countryside and a former player and manager, fondly remembered for the sheer commitment he gave in red and white, who eschews tweeds in favour of […]
