West Bromwich Albion vs Sunderland Guess the Score: can we, will we?

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Is a mug the way to a despairing Sunderland fan’s heart? Would the already rosy life, relatively, of  a Baggie be made complete by having something new to pour his tea into? There is very little Monsieur Salut wants to say about the third Guess the Score prize competition in a week. It is painful enough […]

McCormick's Craic(featured image) full size 640 x 138

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 […]

Sixer’s West Brom Soapbox: disappointing draw leaves victory ale unopened

Sixer'sSoapbox(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes……For some reason I found it hard to get fully involved in this game yesterday and my attention was wandering for significant periods of play. Had my school report been based on the way I viewed this match, it would have read “must learn to concentrate and pay more attention.” I don’t know […]

Sixer’s Sevens: SAFC 1 West Brom 1. Van Aanholt to the rescue

Jake: 'underwhelmed, but a point'

The first-half disappointments – Defoe’s missed sitter, sloppy play leading to WBA’s well-taken goal – had Pete Sixsmith gloomily tweeting a seven-word verdict he thought might survive to end: ‘Lacking in quality all over the field.’ It was difficult to quarrel with that. Patrick Van Aanholt deserves immense credit for almost everything he did after […]

Sunderland v West Brom: random thoughts on Rondon, Vic Halom and Baggies anthem

Jake: 'restore our faith, Lads'

Monsieur Salut writes: the review section of the UAE newspaper I write for, The National, has a feature they call The Long Read. I’ve done it a couple of times – from the Jungle in Calais and on Muslim writers threatened by fanatics for having a progressive instead of medieval outlook. It came to mind […]

West Bromwich Albion ‘Who are You?’: once-reviled Pulis’s ‘searing honesty’

Andrew

Monsieur Salut writes: Every few months, a satellite US radio station Sirius XM, asks me onto a late show (late for me) to talk about the latest woes afflicting Sunderland. That is where Andrew Caulton*, an Englishman in New Hampshire with fingers in lots of football pies, heard me (twice). We met again at Twitter, […]

Sunderland v West Bromwich Albion Guess the Score: let action replace words

Jake: 'restore our faith, Lads'

Hands up anyone who is looking forward to Saturday. In fact, there’ll be plenty. Support, loyalty, passion often transcend the lack of serious expectation. David Moyes and his team have made an abysmal start to the season, the sort that gets managers sacked in panic reaction from owners. (more…)

The people have spoken: Hull, Burnley and Bournemouth to leave the union

winlossoverseason

Would you believe that some people, somewhere, think Man Utd  will be relegated? And that others say the axe will fall on Spurs, Chelsea, or Man City. Some even say Arsenal will go down. That’s democracy for you, so please, please, no histrionics, vitriol or gratuitous insults. There have been enough of them these past few […]
