Sunderland and Salut: how do we regain our Quinn/Drumaville peak?

Colin Randall writes: it is not just Sunderland AFC that knows the meaning of struggle. Salut! Sunderland has its moments, too. I am talking readership levels. Victory – and defeats for those who remember them – in the Wear-Tyne derbies always boost numbers, though not as much as they once did. So do John McCormick’s […]

Salut! Sunderland: how a site better became a site worse

With any luck, Salut! Sunderland will be back to normal or something like it very soon. Sam, our West Ham-supporting web master, a man we hope will be livid at 5pm on Saturday, is working flat out to export the site to a new host (or should that be server? – Monsieur Salut is strictly […]

Salut! Sunderland emergency edition: time for our apologies

Unlike the Tele/Torygraph when the IRA attacked Canary Wharf in 1992, Salut! Sunderland has no headquarters to bomb. It is the product of blokes who support Sunderland but live in true Mackem diaspora fashion in the south of France, on Merseyside and in Spain as well as in the North East. But the impact of […]

Do they mean us? Ready to Go readers’ verdict on Salut! Sunderland

The saying about glass houses and stones hurtles into mind. Salut! Sunderland writers dish out criticism when they feel it is appropriate, so we must expect brickbats to be tossed our way, too. I chanced upon a Ready to Go discussion on the merits and otherwise of sites/blogs related to Sunderland AFC. The usual dismay […]

Salut! Sunderland wishes all readers and contributors a glorious Christmas

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

Colin Randall writes (OK, some would say that’s an exaggeration): Salut! Sunderland had modest beginnings in the New Year of 2007, as an offshoot of Salut!, a post-redundo blog that continued – and maybe even improved – my online work as one of The Daily Telegraph‘s pioneering bloggers, in my case from Paris.

Football Blogging Awards: even Dylan and Darwin couldn’t save us

Jake: 'how do I add Bob Dylan to Salut! Sunderland's Facebook group?'

STOP PRESS: Monsieur Salut writes: I could have sworn the Football Blogging Awards website had November 7 as the closing date for votes.

Tumbling: the cost of supporting Salut! Sunderland

Catch

There is no admission fee to Salut! Sunderland, no Murdoch-style paywall to climb before you reach the delights of Sixer, Jake, John McCormick, Malcolm Dawson, Ken Gambles and so many others. But we need help to stay afloat. Hosting costs threaten to rise and we need to pay the bills and, with a bit of […]
