Come back later today for the Ipswich Town ‘Who are You?

This edition of Guess the Score will involve a level of effort equivalent to that shown by Sunderland AFC at Birmingham the other night.

There will accordingly be nothing until we reach about the two-thirds stage of the article. Instead, readers are invited to imagine an expanse of blank space between the last word of this sentence and the first word of the next since it’s beyond Monsieur Salut’s technological skills to achieve the look for himself.


There, as the Lads collectively declared after we went three down at St Andrew’s, let’s get started.

Guess the Score in Saturday’s home game against Ipswich Town. Bounceback, another dismal surrender or a tame, unhelpful draw?

All are invited to enter. There’s a mug or copy of Tales From the Red and Whites Vol II for the winner. An Ipswich winner can be assured of a prize relevant to his or her allegiance.

That’s about it. My decision is, as ever final.

Ha’way the Lads and check out Susan Gardiner’s Amazon bookshelf if you fancy buying one of her Ipswich Town books.

    Sunderland 2 – 0 Ipswich…..A new beginning or the same old dross….The Jurys Out!

      Same old dross, lets hope its a hanging judge….criminal performance

    A damp squib of a window. A young boy from Albion Rovers – one for the future – do we have a future? An old goalie from Cardiff Reserves who has been on loan more times than the £20 my grandson keeps borrowing, paying back, borrowing again – yet is still better than the two we’ve currently got. A youngster from Liverpool reserves. Then there’s Ashley Fletcher – Man Utd, West Ham, Smoggies then us. His career is going downhill so fast I fully expect him to be selected for the Winter Olympics. Oh, and it’s 2 – to Ipswich on Saturday.

          Absolutely love that picture of all the expectant faces at Roker Park.

          Can I cash it in now?

  3. Terry February 1, 2018 at 12:11 pm #

    2-1 to us for desperately needed home win.

  4. Phil D February 1, 2018 at 12:26 pm #

    Ipswich 1 Sunderland 1

  5. John Mac February 1, 2018 at 12:26 pm #

    Can’t have 2-0 so 3-1

    • Eric012 February 1, 2018 at 3:16 pm #

      Yeah right.

      • John Mac February 1, 2018 at 3:43 pm #

        I was going to add scorers – Ndong & Rodwell (2) – but thought I’d lose credibility if I did

  6. Bill H February 1, 2018 at 12:41 pm #

    2-2 to the lads

  7. Paul February 1, 2018 at 3:41 pm #

    1-0 home win.

  8. Wrinkly Pete February 1, 2018 at 5:47 pm #

    Same goals as the away fixture, different distribution – 4-3 to The Lads.

    Susan Gardiner, whose book about Ipswich you see above, says 2-1 to her lot (without great optimism)

  10. Mel February 3, 2018 at 7:03 am #

    May as well stick with my usual 4-0 to the lads still optimistic about kicking on and staying up 2 to lualua 1 to Fletcher and 1 to Maja but to be honest don’t care where they come from as long as they come.

  11. Mike February 3, 2018 at 1:15 pm #

    The Lads to win 3-2,still hopeful and more so if they win today.
