There is a hint of discontent at Salut! Sunderland, says Monsieur Salut. We’re broadly pleased at the process SAFC have made under Jack Ross, aided and abetted by the breath of fresh air introduced by the new owners. (more…)

How our Coventry friends hijacked Salut! Sunderland’s League One promotion poll

Follow the lads

No sour grapes. We – or those of us with too much time on our hands – might well have done the same to them.

A thank you from Salut! Sunderland, 10 years old this week

Salut! Sunderland and Brexit: the virtue of tolerance

Jake: 'we have some good time'

Just as I watch Olivier Giroud and Paul Pogba’s storming finishes (and now the wonderful Dimitri Payet, then Antoine Griezmann) push France into a position of total dominance, making the dream final of Wales v Iceland rather unlikely, a bit of Salut!
