Monsieur Salut has been badgering Tom Lynn for as long as he can remember to write for Salut! Sunderland. He does, often, but only in comments, the quality of which is always from the top drawer. So to further the process of arm-twisting, and remembering Tom (when he ran the excellent, much-missed magazine The Wearside Roar) was once M Salut’s editor, we promote this, his latest comment to proper article status. Ha’way Tom, join the team …
Just read Paolo Di Canio 2000 autobiography whilst on me jollies.
If he fails at SAFC, you feel it will not be for the want of trying. An excellent, non airbrushed read. All associated with SAFC should read it- fans, staff and players alike.
I pray that Paolo does well because this close season revolution has been needed at SAFC for decades now-we have been a rest home for far too many over paid underachievers for too long, and PDC knew this from the outset when he first arrived and said how does a club with such support and facilities never even try and compete to win things, noting our pathetic home tie cup exits last season to Championship sides Boro and Bolton.
To all these lazy national media “experts” and their fawning editors [yawn] who cannot get their tongues out of the backsides of Man U, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs for long enough to take a proper, analytical look at what has happened at SAFC this summer and are tipping us for relegation, I would say come up and talk to Paolo and let him explain what he is attempting to do on Wearside.
We may have to go through a learning curve, but tipping us to be go down come May 2014 is more of a hope for many of them as opposed to reality.
I think we’ll be sharing Millwall’s “no-one likes us we don’t care” moniker this coming season!
