Salut! Sunderland’s Week: looking back at West Brom, forward to Manchester United

Jake captures the theme

There used to be a feature here called Salut! Sunderland’s Week. As you see, Jake even came up with an image for it.

In the end, it seemed too much like hard work, regurgitating the best of the offerings from these pages over the previous seven days or so, especially for those too busy or disinclined to visit the site daily.

Rarely, we unearth the series. Today’s an example for the simple reason that the first home game of the season takes places tomorrow and is against Manchester United.

So here’s what we’ve been up to, starting with coverage of the opener at West Brom:

* Sixer’s Soapbox: Larsson settles the nerves

* Keir’s player ratings: Catts the imperfect star

Jake: 'ha'way Lads, they're not unbeatable'

* SAFC vs MUFC: The countdown begins with a cheeky RvP bid

* Guess the Score: this is Man Utd’s Cup Final

* The SAFC vs MUFC Who are You?: on Fergie, Moyes, LVG – and Liam Miller

There was more, of course, notably Sixer on the death of James Alexander Gordon and on his pet likes an dislikes from the first weekend of Premier League action, plus a look at the opening weekend of Ligue 1, complete with some outrageous GBH. But for that, you’ll need to go to the home page of Salut! Sunderland and browse.

And one last pre-match Ha’way the Lads from us.

… though their Sunderland stuff naturally has the edge:

A SAFC greater, dodgy design or not
