There is already a Guess the Score prize competition running for SAFC v Tottenham at this link. Check it out if you haven’t already.

Tomorrow (Sunday) I leave on holiday, entrusting the safe stewardship of the site to Malcolm, John, Pete and Jake in the knowledge that there will also be a steady stream of first-rate contributions from Wrinkly Pete, Bob Chapman, Ken Gambles and so many more, who will have the foresight to send their words to salutsunderland@gmail.com as well as to me.

And for the small matter of taking nine points from the three games in my absence on holiday, I leave the club in the safe hands of David Moyes and our splendid players, who will naturally be welcoming some top new colleagues before Wednesday.

To simplify matters, this posting will serve as the Guess the Score for Crystal Palace away and Southampton at home.

It is a partisan double-prize competition in each case – be first to predict the correct winning Sunderland scoreline and you will receive two mugs, sent to a UK delivery address. Be correct – and first – with any other kind of scoreline and you win one.

Winners’ mugs look like this or similar and can be adapted to take account of a non-SAFC supporter taking the prize

Palace and Saints fans are warmly invited to take part, subject to the same rule. If that sounds discriminatory, it’s meant to. This posting will remain at the top of the site’s home page until the Southampton game is played.

Ha’way the Lads.

    1-0 to the lads in both games

    I’ve already done my prediction forSpurs.

  3. Paul January 28, 2017 at 5:55 pm #

    Palace away, not a bad place in recent years: 1-1
    Soton home: 2-1 to Sunderland.

    Palace 2-1 to the Eagles.
    Saints 1-1.

    I don’t feel hopeful at present. Enjoy your holiday.

    The Lads to win 2-1 at Palace and 3-2 against Saints and a badly needed 6 pts.

    This is my second attempt at contributing. My first is up in “the cloud” somewhere.
    I think that the 4-3 win I have already predicted for the Spurs game might be a tad optimistic so have gone for a 3-3 (only) draw v Palace with PVA scoring at both ends and being culpable in both our other goals. ( moi, bitter?)
    We will beat Saints 3-2, with Long missing an open goal thus denying my favoured score this season of 3-3.
    Those eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted this is a departure from my “SOS” forecast of a defeat but I NEED ANOTHER MUG.

  7. Wrinkly Pete January 30, 2017 at 5:44 pm #

    Arrgh! Just spotted Mike’s 3-2 so will go for The Lads 4-3 The Saints.

    Palace 0 – 2 Sunderland

    Sunderland 2 – 0 Saints

  9. Phil D February 4, 2017 at 4:41 pm #

    Nobody predicted we would score four.
    And in the first half too!

  10. david miller February 10, 2017 at 8:31 am #

    Southampton 1, SAFC 4.

  11. Cairo Cat February 10, 2017 at 9:00 am #

    Sunderland 3, Saints 1

    After a very unexpected or significant win Sunderland often come back down to earth and draw their next game 2-2. It’s happened a few times during this latest PL run. The most notable three are:

    1st game of 2007 – Spurs (1-0), Birmingham (2-2).
    “That” Chelsea game of 2010 – Chelsea (3-0), Everton (2-2).
    Clinching Everton game of 2016 – Everton (3-0), Watford (2-2).

    So – SAFC 2-2 Saints
