Colin Randall has carried the heavy burden of supporting Sunderland since his father took him to a Division Two match at Middlesbrough in which Brian Clough scored the SAFC winner. He is a journalist and, after a spell in France, helped launched a national newspaper in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) before returning to Europe to divide his time between France and the UK. Perversely, he retains his East Stand season ticket - and is delighted that it is used most games.

Pete Sixsmith is a teacher and began following the Lads at the same time as Colin his neighbour in Shildon. Colin reckons that in his labour of love for Salut! Sunderland, Pete is wittier, sharper and more eloquent than most Fleet Street sports writers covering SAFC.
