Here’s a quick warm up for tonight’s main event. Another game against another Yorkshire club. Not as important, perhaps, but it gives us a glimpse of some players who might yet grace the famous grounds of the English Football League such as Roots Hall, Adams Park, Highbury, The Kassam three sided,  The New Meadow and […]

It would be an exaggeration to say Salut! Sunderland expects dozens of Stanley fans to turn up here and answer the questions below. Our Who are You? feature is in its dying days.   The death of Who are You? is a great shame – well, maybe only a small shame. It’s been fun to […]

Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland: just as we were enjoying a break from football …

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Yes, it’s back. Proper football, I mean, says Monsieur Salut. Along with plenty of others, if probably still a minority, I tend to regard international breaks as weekends without football. At the very least, it’s a time to welcome not being too bothered about results. Delighted though I am that England won against Bulgaria, and […]

Will Toney atone? Luke O’Nien cleared but Peterborough man’s simulation stains football

Click the banner to guess the score

HThe hardest bit is trying to enter the mindset of a professional footballer who, during a meaningless touchline tangle after his team has taken an unassailable 3-0 lead, receives no contact to his face but goes down clutching it as if someone has just whacked him with a sideways blow from a sledgehammer. Luke O’Nien […]

Perhaps it was all the whingeing on social media about Jack Ross and the shortcomings of Sunderland’s transfer dealings. Perhaps it was a return, despite all we had to spend to put things right, of the occasional redirection from our pages to a rogue Turkish escort site (if anyone knows of a legal way of […]

Peterborough Utd vs Sunderland. Ross’s dilemma as he seeks seven in a row

Click the banner to guess the score

An interesting dilemma faces Jack Ross ahead of Peterborough away. He made eight changes for the Carabao Cup visit to Burnley and watched in admiration as the team came from behind to secure a marvellous 3-1 win and a third round trip to another Premier League side, Sheffield United. There were excellent individual performances – […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Grigg’s off the mark and Burnley are turfed out of the cup

Jake

Pete Sixsmith gets to a lot of Sunderland games home and away – though he’s introduced a ban on matches south of Lincoln this season – and whizzed across the Pennines to show solidarity with Bury and Bolton and watch the Lads at Turf Moor. Only the Carabao Cup. But up against Premier League opposition again. […]
