Salut! Sunderland welcomes Lee Burge, competition for Jon McLaughlin

Plenty of this from the Roker End last night.

Fans, understandably, look at new signings and, if a player is coming on a free transfer, feel underwhelmed and wonder whether progress is actually being made. Long experience has taught Monsieur Salut to avoid rash judgements just because July starts without any major new additions. On that wretched but sometimes useful thing that is social […]

Peterborough United vs Sunderland: the stakes are high

Guess the score

We did what was necessary against Doncaster Rovers. We are still masters of our own destiny. But that could change if we falter against Posh. With so few games left, there is no further leeway. The results of others have to be matched. If they are, we go up automatically, without the ordeal of playoffs. […]

Hopeless ref, ruffian Wycombe opponents maybe. But should Sunderland stop looking for excuses?

Salut Banner5(featured image)

First of all, I was not there. I have no first-hand idea of whether Lee Swabey is a model referee, a man who leaves each game with head rightly held high, or a disgrace, the worst of a bad bunch allowed to officiate the third tier of English football. Or somewhere in between. There wasn’t […]

Ross and McGeady: deserving Sunderland winners

Click the image to visit our home page. Make reading Salut! Sunderland habit

We do plenty for each other, SAFC and Salut! Sunderland, so no one will mind if we simply record the EFL League One Player/Manager of the Month awards – both going our way – by reference to the official club site. Jack Ross said the award to Aiden McGeady was a ‘no brainer’ and few […]

Josh Maja: fall-out and falling out as Bordeaux uncorks its cheeky new red

Josh on the scoresheet again., Sixer inside the programme

Monsieur Salut writes: the club’s statement on the completion of Josh Maja’s move to Bordeaux was short and uninformative. We awaited some thanks, either way. They came belatedly from Maja and we should give him the benefit of the doubt and accept them at face value as being his own sentiments, not some old dross […]

Sunderland home kits: the good, the acceptable and the downright ugly history

home

Matthew Warburton, writer and Sunderland fan, looks back at the striped but also – figuratively – chequered history of the SAFC home kit … Sunderland AFC have been around for a long time; since 1879, as any properly educated schoolboy would tell you. As fans, we’re quite proud to say that the home kit hasn’t […]

Crisis at Christmas for Salut! Sunderland but Happy Boxing Day to all

Ho ho ho(a)'way the lads

Salut! Sunderland hopes against hope that the recent crisis is over, though if you leave a comment it may not appear to be visible. We are seeing them and they are being saved so please leave them and they should appear as the glitches get sorted but latest viewings suggest that at this time (1.30 […]

The Port Vale vs Sunderland Guess the Score. Let’s keep up that winning feeling

No prize but Guess he Svopre jyst for fun

Oh, the shame of playing in the FA Cup first round. That’s one way of looking at Sunday’s visit to Port Vale. Another is to be philosophical about the chance to test players’ fitness, give lesser-used squad members some game time and maintain the great recent run for Sunderland AFC. (more…)

SAFC vs Sheffield Wednesday prize Guess the Score: we’re the underdogs

Guess the score

It is a fact of life as we find it, says Monsieur Salut. Sunderland start the Carabao Cup tie (league cup to you and me) against the Owls on Thursday night as lower-league underdogs. While we all hope that situation will last for only one season – unless, contrary to the expectations of many of […]

A chance for Sunderland fans to have their say on naming the Stadium of Light stands

The gaffer by our graphics man, Jake.

Monsieur Salut writes: we’re all hoping the football from Jack Ross’s new-look Sunderland side will generate an electric atmosphere for today’s opening game against Charlton Athletic. But would you feel better if you were sitting in a stand named after a SAFC hero rather than the geographically sound but dull East, West, North and South? […]
