Wrinkly Pete: Sunderland’s glass in smithereens but mine’s still half full after Swansea

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Peter Lynn is as disappointed and cross as anyone, but finds reason to look back with affection on at least one aspect of Saturday’s last Premier League SAFC home game for a season or more … Well, my SOS – as in Save our Sunderland – never arrived but as Monsieur Salut has pointed out […]

A daughter writes: sorry Hull, you’re down with Sunderland and Middlesbrough

Nathalie, left, and team-mates in women's football. They get exasperated watching us play

Nathalie Randall, daughter of Monsieur Salut, rues the collapsing act of the team she disloyally supports, Liverpool, predicts an Arsenal place after all in the top four and says Hull are going down with Boro and us … There will be no “little” team winning the Premier League this year. Normality seems to have been […]

Premier title looks sorted but Sunderland can now affect Hull and Swansea’s fate

From Jim's Facebook page

After a season devoid of impact or excitement, Sunderland are in the relatively unusual position of having a major say in who else goes down – and a glance at the odds at 10bet homepage suggests the bookies don’t expect us to stand in Swansea’s way on Saturday. Our rare win at the weekend, with […]

West Brom, Watford safe. Palace, Bournemouth, Burnley relaxing, ‘Boro, Hull, Swansea sweating. Sunderland propping them up.

Another empty weekend unless you’re a groundhopper like Sixer or a local league fan like Malcolm, which means it’s time for a relegation review. With six games to go in a compressed framework and a holiday coming up this is probably the last one I’ll be able to fit in. It has been a long […]

Dear David: a devastating critique as Swansea, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth add to misery

one of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images as this is a democratic effort ...

This arrived ‘in the post’ as an entry in Guess the Score for SAFC vs Manchester City and before today’s rather depressing run of scores elsewhere. The author, Tom Lynn, is not just another disgruntled fan – he’s part of the life and soul of the Sunderland fan base, a man you bump into home […]

Was Crystal Palace another false dawn or proof Moyes can work miracles?

  After the great win at Crystal Palace was followed by a crushing home defeat to Southampton, Sunderland fans typically divided into two familiar camps: loyal belief in another great escape and, inevitably, grim resignation. Alex McMahon tries to see positives despite an underwhelming transfer window and the failure to build on the Palace result […]

Sunderland, Palace, Hull, Swansea, Middlesbrough and Leicester – pick any three

When I last reported in with the Salut Sunderland relegation watch we had had some recent wins but were still in the relegation zone, along with Swansea and Hull. (Swansea weren’t one of the clubs chosen in our start-of season poll but I included them in December on the grounds that some people did vote for “another club” and they  had begun […]

Hull, Swansea and Sunderland down? Bournemouth, Watford, Middlesbrough, Burnley, West Brom and Crystal Palace safe? Maybe, maybe not

Wrinkly Pete alluded to my dodgy numbers in his post earlier in the week so  here’s an overview on our performance to date, along with that of the clubs named in the headline, which were chosen by a free and democratic poll at the start of the season. I’m keeping it brief – only a quick trip to […]

From France with love: for Chelsea, Arsenal but Sunderland and Burnley too

France_240-animated-flag-gifs

It came out of the blue. A message from a Twitter user plugging Heristage, ‘the only French-language site dedicated to English football’. The message directed me to a long and superbly detailed analysis (in French but at this link) of Sunderland AFC’s ‘Bank of England’ era, that period of the 1950s that older supporters identify as […]

Sunderland, Hull and ‘Boro descending; Watford rising; Palace, West Brom, Burnley and Bournemouth on the level

During the close season we gave readers the opportunity to select their relegation favourites from the entire Premier league. Then we asked readers to select three candidates from the eight clubs which came top. By  the season’s start some 3,500 votes had been cast in our relegation poll Hull were firm favourites to go down, with Burnley and Sunderland giving the North […]
