Here is the feature we introduced with the intention of getting readers talking.
Salut! Sunderland: the way it is is essentially your forum, a place to let off steam, make a point or raise an issue none of the site’s contributors has got round to writing about. It removes the need to wait for Sixer, Monsieur Salut, John Mac, Ken Gambles, Malcolm Dawson, Jeremy Robson or any of the the others to catch up on the news. We haven’t the resources to be any quicker.
Cup excitement has been and gone and we’re back to the grind of fighting for our Premier League lives.
So it is time to restore The Way It Is to the top of the home page. The idea is that this Salut! Sunderland feature will encourage readers to get talking about any Sunderland or even non-SAFC topic on their minds, whether or not any of our regular writers have yet got round to covering.
Don’t feel the need to wait for a full article to appear on the topic that interests you. As explained previously, it is far quicker and easier for a reader to post a comment than for one of the contributors to write a piece and for one of the editors to pick it up and publish.
This is your forum, a chance to air your thoughts on as wide a variety of subjects as you wish without wondering whether the comment fits the posting. There will still be the usual opportunity to comment at postings on specific topics. But The Way It Is is back at the top of the home page – https://safc.blog – so that it is one of the first things you see on arriving at the site by that route …
At the suggestion of the deputy editor Malcolm Dawson, who possesses a tidy mind, the comments will be purged from time to time to ensure it is not a pain to wade through them.
