SA’s Essay: Sunderland self destruct at Spurs

Malcolm Dawson writes…….two wins on the bounce had put a bit of colour back into the cheeks of an ailing Sunderland side but we all knew that there is still a long way to go before recovery is complete. Today was a tough test but we started well enough. Organised and disciplined with PvA once […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Tottenham Hotspur 4 SAFC 1. A nightmarish second half

Jake: catch Sixer's instant seven-word verdicts throughout the season

No Sixer at the match today, though he was watching, somewhere, and still provided the instant, seven-word verdict. Once again a shot from PVA ended up in the back of the net and this time there was no deflection, just a powerful low finish to a peach of a defence-splitting pass from Adam Johnson. The […]

Cheer up, Tottenham’s DeAndre Yedlin: lots of us had bad school reports

Monsieur Salut’s school record is littered with stern, sarky or downright contemptuous remarks from teachers and headmasters. ‘Could do better’, ‘doesn’t concentrate’, ‘not good enough for this school’. That kind of thing. So DeAndre Yedlin should take heart and learn from what follows, Charles Richards of The Spurs Report’s Q&A with Pete Sixsmith on how […]

Tottenham Hotspur ‘Who are You?’: a Newcastle-friendly, SAFC-unfriendly affair

a chance for Posh fans to have their say

Here’s a man with no special desire to cultivate friendships among Sunderland fans. Charles Richards*, self-confessed posh Durham Uni type, responded to our request for a Tottenham Hotspur interviewee in a manner calculated to wind us all up.

Pure Poyetry: new shape, new style but no points at Spurs

Jake: ''oh Danny boy! But dont forget Fletch's miss either'

Malcolm Dawson writes……the overall feeling amongst the Sunderland fraternity is that Jermain Defoe will bring a new dimension to a side that lacks pace. He also brings a goal scoring pedigree but the question being asked was how would Gus fit him into his style of play. The manager has been coming in for some […]

Pure Poyetry: Spurs dig in as Sunderland fall short

Jake: We all want to

Deputy Editor Malcolm Dawson writes…Another frustrating evening at the Stadium of Light saw another defeat and to my eyes a squad of players who just aren’t good enough to compete with the better sides of the Premier League. The good news is that they are probably good enough to compete with the poorer sides and […]

Arsenal, Spurs, Everton, Man Utd, Sunderland and the window of opportunity


Salut! Sunderland’s Pete Sixsmith can remember the time when the transfer window was just an empty space covered in an old potato sack. Now the latest window has been closed, Peter gives his thoughts on the last minute activity that brought a further three players into the club … The great day has gone and […]

The post-Tottenham Soapbox: Trevor Francis’s Hong Kong phooey, PDC’s progress

Salut Investigates

Spurs fans came here in numbers, and also butted in at Monsieur Salut!s ESPN pages, to dismiss the result as a function of Sunderland fielding their best side – they haven’t heard the name Steven Fletcher – against a bunch of under-9s. Were they as weakened as the SAFC team that nearly snatched a point […]

Le Parole di Paolo: beating Tottenham barely a start, satisfaction within reach

Halo there

A new title and a new-look Sunderland team are the orders of the day as Paolo Di Canio‘s first full season of post-match verdicts, as delivered in his over-so-exclusive e-mail to Monsieur Salut (and maybe tens of thousands of others), approaches. Thrilled with the performance that brought 3-1 victory over Spurs, PDC points out that […]
