Salut! Predictions League: Sunderland and Newcastle thrashed by Manchester clubs

Jake assesses the quality of our panel

Stephen Goldsmith writes: Thank God for the international break this weekend. Moving house with a young family means that I have had little and no time to bring you all the latest league standings this week – and I know how much you have all been waiting in anticipation. Anyway, that gave me a little room to be a few days late with this. Runaway leader Malcolm, of course, is fully aware of the current table.

People are quick to tell me that moving house brings with it sentimental and philisophical feelings. I can safely say that there has been enough activity in and around SAFC this week to give me my fair of philisophical thoughts. I am allowed to use the acronym SAFC right? As for the moving house, well…. I’m sentimental in regards to me being more than a ten minute walk from my previous local for the first time in my adult life. It makes me realise how much I love the place. And I’m quite philisophical about just who exactly drinks in the Board Inn – my new local.

Anyway, mid-table obscurity feels good to me, as I catch Robert who is sinking rapidly. Malcolm has opened up a bit of a gap now and I may turn to him for help on my coupon I’m thinking.

With every single participant predicting a Mags’ defeat, but no-one predicting the exact score, we all got at least one point at the weekend. Next weekend brings the big one when surely the team’s hearts and heads will all be pulling the same way.

Ha’way the Lads!!!!!!!

    We were well thrashed by City. The Mags were beaten by ManU but they came more and more into the game.

    Luckily Pardew might be missing a few of his regulars incl. Cabaye.
    Its going to be a tight match. Ncle are capable of hurting us. We’ve got to be firing on all cylnders and get the upper hand somehow in midfield.
    Although I must admit that I might not fancy our lads up against Tiote and ben Afra etc. Hope I’m wrong.

    Always a tough match, always fancy NUFC for the win but SAFC capable of a result when in the mood. Christ knows, but I’m saving face & going on the draw.
    1-1 Fletcher for SAFC and a Hatem wonder goal for NUFC.

    Worrabout next week Steve? Will we still be predicting three results? I only need nine points and I’m top of the league! That’s if Malcolm gets none!

    Yeah be back this weekend. Don’t know whether to go for 2 or 3 games with us and Mags playing each other.

    Judging by the nature of your question, it’s safe to assume you want 3 haha
