We wish all readers of Salut! Sunderland an excellent 2010.
Our own shortened, sharpened catalogue of wishes for the year is modest in ambition:
* win the FA Cup
* finish higher than Birmingham City’s current position
* cheer on Paraguay, red and white stripes and all, to a good World Cup performance (even if we are perfectly happy for England to win the trophy)
* enjoy a bit of luck in the Champions League draw
* team up with Lorik Cana to give guided tours of Durham Cathedral (above) and his other cultural locations of choice
Anyone else want to add their own wishes and resolutions?
