Jake: ‘you need a long memory’

The congestion of this week and next – with games tonight, Sunday and next Wednesday – means there’ll be an awful lot to fit in over the coming days.

So apologies for Guess the Score for SAFC vs Scunthorpe appearing now. The same applied to the Scunny “Who are You?”. At least there’ll be plenty to read between now and this time next week. We can but hope it will all be positive.

As for Sunday’s game, we simply invite readers – whoever they support – to have a go at predicting the scioreline. Our Scunthorpe interviewee, Matt Blanchard, went for 2-2. We will be hoping for at least those two home goals – John Maja has Salut! Sunderland’s express permission to add to his early tally – and fewer than two for the opposition.

If you get to the game, treat yourselves to a matchday programme. It has already gone to print (though we aren’t sure if there’ll be scope for a post-Sheff Wed update) and Pete Sixsmith has an admirable piece in it.

And now guess the score. Be first, be right and have a UK delivery address and you’ll win a mug of suitable design, rather likle this if you support Sunderland …

Ha’way the Lads.

    Clean sheet and a trio at the other end 3-0 Sunderland win, but any win will do 🙂

      Well done Malcolm – the rest of us needn’t have bothered – done and dusted first post.

    The eternal optimist says a clean sheet and fower for the lads a deffo 4-0

  3. John Mac August 16, 2018 at 2:18 pm #

    I’m as optimistic as the first two posts but have to stick with 2-0. Now into my third (or is it 4th?) season with it and no mug yet.

    It will happen

    For those of us who can’t make the game, are you allowed to reprint Sixer’s piece anywhere? 007’s brother (or is it sister?) has nicked my normal prediction of fower nowt so I’ll go for fower plus one equals five nowt.

      I shall ask, Eric.

  5. William C August 16, 2018 at 4:02 pm #

    An equally optimistic, but more modest, 2-1 to SAFC.

  6. Paul August 16, 2018 at 4:46 pm #

    1-0 to Sunderland.

  7. Phil D August 16, 2018 at 7:21 pm #

    3-1 win to the lads.

    Still optimistic.

  8. Bill August 17, 2018 at 10:11 am #

    3-2 to the lads

    Goals and chances are a rare commodity for us.

    2-2 for me.
