Jim is vice-chairman of the Swans Trust (the supporters’ group that owns 20 per cent of the club, a unique phenomenon in the Premier), runs the fan site SCFC2.co.uk and gets to loads of games. […]

Soapbox: my Swansea diary as a long day closes

Pete Sixsmith‘s test messages from South Wales suggested a day that peaked with his pre-match pint in Port Talbot and went downhill on reaching the Liberty Stadium in Swansea. At least he was spared a third defeat in a week. This is the blow-by-blow account of his day … It was a long, long day […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Swansea City 0 Sunderland 0 … pure drudgery

This is where Pete Sixsmith captures the glory or shame, hope or despair, excitement or ennui of each Sunderland game. After a grim week, the action moved to the Liberty stadium in Swansea. And it was not a pretty sight. Gyan, “not at the races” and maybe with his mind on an onward move according […]

After Newcastle & Brighton, will Swansea improve on a week to forget?

This is the latest edition of Salut! Sunderland’s Week. Pete Sixsmith has worked his not inconsiderable backside off for us in the past seven days.

Swansea as Steve Bruce’s Swansong? Some of us still hope nothing happens tomorrow to make […]

The Swansea Who Are You?: ‘just let us stay up’

For a time, I worried it wasn’t going to come. There is no greater stress, I said, than the “Who Are You?” series. Then, in the nick of time, Phil Sumbler*, chairman of the Swans Trust (swanstrust.co.uk) – a remarkable example of supporter involvement in a football club – and leading light at the planetswans.co.uk […]

Soapbox: Carling Cup cop-out, then the trek to Swansea

Back from Brighton at 5pm today. Off to Swansea at 4am on Saturday, back with any luck by midnight. That is dedication, Mr Bruce, and Pete Sixsmith is far from alone in showing it, game after game. In return, last night at any rate, they were shortchanged … I notice that M Salut is running […]

Stop fretting about Swansea: get your Monday lie-in here

The people at – or speaking for – Yahoo tell me Salut! Sunderland readers gave a great response to the Monday lie-in competition. The what? That’s what you’ll be asking if you missed it first time round when I cynically linked it to a certain game most of us wish to forget (there are loads […]
