Jake: ‘make our day!’

As the laborious and uninspiringly low-profile search for a new manager goes on, Sunderland return to Championship action with only a month left of the year since we last won at home.

Can we finally get three points at the Stadium of Light without needing three games to do so? Will Ellis Short accuse the media of making it up if we don’t?


Have a go in the usual Guess the Score competition. One of these days, a reader will predict a SAFC home win and collect the prize. Let’s hope it is this weekend.

Our Millwall “Who are You?” interviewee, 16-year-old Lucas Ball, predicts we will at least avoid defeat but have to settle for yet another draw (his interview will be published on Thursday). Without the slightest confidence, Monsieur Salut thinks we’ll finally record that win.

Be first, be right, have a UK delivery address and – whoever you support – you will win a modest mug.

Ha’way the Lads.

    We will continue to find it easier to score than defend so I will enjoy the four hour drive home after our 4-3 win!

  11. Bill November 14, 2017 at 9:38 pm #

    4-2 to the lads

    Cant see you beating us, later in the season you might win, but how many seasons have you stated very poor,.
    we have a very good defence, always raise our game against
    big clubs, like yourselves.
    As long as its fair game, with correct decisions, being applied
    by the referee, thats all we can ask.
