Newcastle Disunited: at least True Geordie’s funny, unlike Jamie Carragher

 recalled by Jake

A Newcastle United fan with huge YouTube and Twitter followings lets rip after Sunday. No one offended by bad language should click on the link to four minutes and 42 seconds of bile aimed not at us but at his own manager and team. 106,310 people had done so as I started posting this. (more…)

France, Tunisia and a word in Fifa’s ear

There will be a lot of random jottings here during the World Cup, given our declared support for Paraguay – not to the exclusion of a probably Bentless England, but in honour of Cristian Riveros, Paulo da Silva and those red and white stripes – and the haphazard nature of the Salut! Sunderland team of […]

Who are you? We’re Aston Villa (3), lurking in Sunderland

Long ago – long even before this photo* was taken in 1995 – I had a colleague who suddenly ended his lifelong support for Villa. They’d given him quite enough grief, ruined far too many Saturdays. No more. He’d even stopped looking too hard for the scores, and felt tons happier. Somehow can’t see that […]

A Christmas football wishlist. 1 (A-I): Thierry Henry in Gaelic, Darlo in the playoffs

Is Santa listening? Probably not, but Salut! Sunderland thought it would produce its own list of the presents it wants, the things it wants to happen not just for Christmas but for the coming year.

Who are you? We’re Aston Villa (3)

If Salut! Sunderland‘s generosity with its space is matched by Villa’s generosity to the opposition, our fears after a rotten run since the Arsenal win may be unfounded. I certainly didn’t expect so many Villa fans to come forward with previews ahead of tonight’s game but am happy to publish a third contribution – from […]

Arsène, Thierry and Jean-Louis: a triumvirate of French arrogance?

Colin Randall treads difficult domestic territory, braves the disapproval of a French wife and two half-French daughters and, setting himself up as judge, jury and La Cour de Cassation, finds two of the above guilty as charged … Not every Englishman is a BNP thug who steams through French railway carriages singing: “If it wasn’t […]

Soapbox: another week, another drama. But let’s hand it to Thierry Henry

As Sunderland prepare to face Arsenal, the debate rages on. Should France v Republic of Ireland be replayed? If so, what about Reading 1 Sunderland 0 (goal given, not over line), Sunderland 1 Aston Villa 1 (legitimate, last second SAFC winner inexplicably denied by Steve Bentley), Sunderland 1 Liverpool 0 (beachball clinches the points). One […]

Thierry Henry joins Salut! Sunderland’s anti-cheating campaign

On a night when Irish eyes were left streaming with tears, Salut! Sunderland cheats a little with its headline … That headline is a product of premature exasperation. Thierry Henry has yet to declare his hand, so to speak. But if he wishes to sign up to the Salut! Sunderland AFC (Against Football Cheats) campaign**, […]

Who are you? We’re Arsenal (1)

Once upon a time, Fatima al Shamsi*, pictured (left) with her sister Alyazyah outside the Emirates Stadium, accepted an internship at an English-language newspaper in Abu Dhabi, capital of her native UAE, and found herself under the professional guidance of a Sunderland supporter. It would be a gross misrepresentation of events to suggest she returned […]
