Malcolm Dawson writes………Tuesday evening sees the Lads return to the “Son of Filbert Street Stadium”, where last season they kick started the Foxes’ challenge for the title. This was supposed to be another one of them six pointer affairs but the Boys in Blue have added weight to the new manager rebound theory and now it is just a run of the mill three pointer for us. I suppose Boro’s nils apiece draw in South Wales has left us with the slimmest of hopes but it’s not easy seeing us finish anywhere but 20th this season. Still nil desperandum as the grand burghers (or should that be the silly burghers) of Sunderland would have us say. How optimistic are you? Let us know by having a go at predicting the outcome in another Guess the Score and contribute to the Bradley Lowery campaign. It has been revealed that young Bradley is to undergo another bout of ground breaking treatment in the fight against his neuroblastoma. Keep battling and hang on in there bonny lad.

Ah but there is a great prize and it aids the Bradley Lowery campaign. Read on …

The first person to post the correct scoreline will receive the mini-edition of the Nick Barnes Matchbook, an inimitable collection of the notebook aides memoires and general pre-match jottings of the estimable BBC Radio Newcastle commentator. The cost will be borne by the small fund of advertising revenue Salut! Sunderland attracts – those pesky sponsored articles – in the knowledge that the publishers of Nick’s work pay a fiver of the purchase price into Bradley’s fund.

Win the prize: help Bradley Lowery

But what if you already have the Matchbook, don’t want one (sorry, Nick) or support a team other than Sunderland, such as Leicester City or Dukla Prague? Well, we have that covered, too – you get a mug designed in accordance with your allegiance and Monsieur Salut shoves the fiver Bradley’s way.

Don’t forget. This site is jam-packed with content worth exploring. There are archives going back to 2007 – yes, it’s now 10 years since we breathed our first – and all sorts of links to enable you to have a peek at what we’ve been up to now and in the past.

Jake: shows you the way to go home

No-one won the prize on Saturday with far too much optimism in the red and white ether but there’s no rollover this week – just the one prize to the first person to correctly predict the scoreline. Usual rules apply and M Salut’s decision is final but don’t worry if you are a first timer as the time of your post will be logged even if it is held back for moderation.

Jake wonders will we be toasting The Lads or drowning our sorrows?

    We can’t score and our defence isn’t up to much. I think this season we are doomed.

    Leicester have won the last four and we haven’t scored in almost 500 minutes. So………

    Leicester 0 Sunderland 2

    It’s the hope I can’t stand.

    Moyes will pick an insperational team, with flair, passion and commitment, unfortunately it just won’t be with Sunderland.

    Realism time:

    Leicester 3 – 0 SAFC

    We are down already so it really dosn’t matter.

    A goal to Sunderland but two to Leicester

    I am ineligible for a prize – and someone else can take my scoreline and qualify – but having banged on about the anniversary of Leicester’s amazing escape, i have to go with a Sunderland win. 2-1 to us

      ..though I was less optimistic at ESPN!

    If the team feel anything like I do in terms of confidence, this has all the makings of an 8 goal hammering.

    I will, however, go for a useless score draw, twos each, both ours being penalties most likely.

    The Lads to win 1-0 and who knows.!

  7. Eric012 April 3, 2017 at 6:37 pm #

    Can’t score, can’t defend, midfield can’t pass to each other, most of them don’t care, manager makes Mrs Doubtfire seem happy, but the fans are class. Funky Foxes 2 Davey’s Disasters O.

      You win, Eric. A winning loser! Will be in touch

  8. Wrinkly Pete April 4, 2017 at 10:36 am #

    As predicted above, they will score three, but so will we!

    That’s 3-3 to be clear.
