You’ve seen the Remain case for Moyes. Now hear from a Leaver

Paul Summerside: 'the worst football I've witnessed here in 51 years' years'

Monsieur Salut presented a brief argument in favour of sticking with David Moyes at this link. Rob Hutchison has already made the case more strongly here We both knew our views would be controversial. And so it has proved.

Southampton v SAFC Guess the Score: we’d rather beat Arsenal but …

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Would you settle for a Sunderland defeat at Southampton on Wednesday, ending our interest in the EFL Cup, and a home win on Saturday? Me too, if your answer was yes. Of course, wins in both games would be even better. But whereas beating the Saints would be nice enough, and stir dreams of a […]

Salut Banner5(featured image)

Around this time of every year, there are certainties we take for granted. The calendar will tell us it is October, trees shed leaves, shops advertise Christmas as if it’s only next week and Sunderland supporters still await a first win of the season.

Sixer’s Southampton Soapbox: JD spot on but Saints claw back a point

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I’m frequently surprised by stats showing how little possession we have when we look untroubled for long periods. Today was another example. Saints pressed but rarely bothered our keeper and when they did he rose to the challenge on every occasion but one. Unfortunately that one time gave Southampton a point – I was […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Southampton 1-1 Sunderland. Late heartbreak again

Jake: 'it's a start'

A point at Southampton is always a good return. But for the third time in four seasons – the odd one out leaving us a little humiliated – Sunderland lost out on an important win because they could not defend a lead. SAFC were the better side in the first half, recovered from a second […]

Southampton Who are You?: ‘yep, I’d take Defoe, class act, and Januzaj’

Jake: 'have a winning day on the south coast, Lads'

Alan Copps* is one of Monsieur Salut’s valued former colleagues and his fine writing – as opposed to M Salut’s basic reporting – graced the pages of The Daily Telegraph and later The Times.

Southampton ‘Guess the score’. No mugs here

John McCormick writes: We make the long trip to Southampton aiming to put a stop to the poor start to the season. And what team will we have out to do it? Kone, do you think, alongside new signing Javier Manquillo? Or perhaps Borini returning to feed and support Defoe? (more…)
