Come on, all you serial optimists. Have another go at guessing a Sunderland score, the game at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
William C got it right on Tuesday – 2-0 to us – and wins a mug. Two in a week is a bit much so let’s make this another one just for fun.
We all know what is at stake. Another defeat and we’re in dire straits, or should I say direr straits. A draw might just about seem acceptable and boost morale, a win of any kind – a beachball deflection sending Jozy Altidore’s off-target shot past Mignolet, a borderline offside in the last second of stoppage time, a Suarez own goal just before his second yellow for diving – would send the pulses racing.
Rules don’t matter too much when there’s no prize at stake, but the usual ones apply. Be right, be first and you book your reward in heaven.

Q: What is your view of Paolo Di Canio, the desperate start Sunderland have made to this season (question posed before the sacking)?
A: It’s a tough time for Sunderland, and everyone is weighing in with opinion and rhetoric and you certainly don’t need mine. I will say, again, it’s the fans who are left wanting, who keep paying and turning up but who are at mercy of the whims of the owners.
