The quickest of mentions: thanks to the Salut! Sunderland readers who have sent the site surging past the million mark for “hits”.
I said the milestone was looming, but then forgot to keep track.
This is how it looked as I started writing: 1,015,594. Looking at the stats, the million must have been reached some time last Thursday. These are figures amassed since the site launched back at the start of 2007.
I can hardly believe it. But since it is true, I can only thank everyone who comes, often or occasionally (or just when their own teams are mentioned in headlines), and promise to try to repay the loyalty be maintaining a reasonable level of information, entertainment and wit.
