A banner Jake produced for 2016 game that we won 3-0

We’ve had a first winner in this season’s Guess the Score series and it’s yet another correct prediction from Paul Devine, a Sunderland supporter exiled in the Netherlands. He sensed we would draw 1-1 with Derby County and was right.

As I write, the Bury League Cup game is still to come. There may be another winner to announce from that tie (NB: the obvious update is that I am delighted we got through).

But now on to Carrow Road.

The SAFC dressing room mug

Sunderland have been brilliant and awful at Norwich in recent times, the stand-out game for us being the 3-0 win under Big Sam that made us believe in survival for – as it turned out – just one more Premier League season.

What will happen this time? Both of us in the Championship, both hoping to climb back to the top.

Have a go. Whoever you support, you could win a prize – even if it’s only a mug.

Usual rules: be first to post the correct scoreline, do so before kickoff and have a UK delivery address. Monsieur Salut’s decision shall be final.

    Norwich will be one of the favourites for promotion this season, so a win would very heartening. 0-1 to SAFC.

    we will win 2-1, honeyman to score again twice 🙂

    We don’t have an out and out scorer and our defence looks suspect at times but I still have to go for 2-0 to us, with Defoe and Borini scoring.

    It must happen some time

  5. Robbo August 11, 2017 at 2:09 pm #

    I reckon another 1-1.

  6. Pete Sixsmith August 11, 2017 at 4:42 pm #

    2-1 to us. Grabban and McGeady. Maybe.

  7. Geoff Bethell August 11, 2017 at 11:59 pm #

    3-1 to Norwich. We might get the first goal.

  8. Paul August 12, 2017 at 5:49 am #

    A draw at Carrow Road would be more than okay, 2-2.

  9. david miller August 12, 2017 at 10:04 am #

    I also think a draw is likely, but I will plump for a stunning 4-1 victory to the lads.

  10. Phil D August 13, 2017 at 2:19 am #

    Norwich 2 Sunderland 1

    Hopefully we will win but I’m not optimistic – a hangover from last season?

    The Lads to win 3-2, a confidence builder.
