no mugs this Tuesday

What will the score be on Tuesday when we take on Morecambe in the Checkatrade Trophy?

First to post the correct score won’t win a mug but the glory will all be theirs.

Usual rules apply.

You can predict the score from anywhere in the world but if you want to win the non-mug you must have a UK address to which it won’t be posted.

Morecambe supporters are welcome to enter. Any from Sunderland Point will still count as away supporters. If an away supporter wins her or his non-mug will be suitably decorated – or so she or he is free to believe.

Your post may be held for moderation but we will know who got in first in the event of two winning predictions being posted. Both won’t be sent the non-mug.

M Salut’s decision is final.

    We are bound to put out the youngins for this game so it realistically could be anything, but for the sake of the ‘Glory’ (does this mean I need to get a second trophy cabinet?) Sunderland to win same as last night 2 -1.

    Having won my first mug, even if it is a “non-mug”, I’m looking to extend my winning streak. I’ll go for us to win 3-1

    I agree with CSB I think it will be a completely different side out against Morecambe on Tuesday but feel that they will all have something to prove so as optimistic as ever 4-0 to the lads

      I’m too late to register my usual fower nowt, Jame’s brother has had it away. Still I’m only shaken not stirred. 18 nowt is my confident prediction.

    I think another clean sheet, and three more goals. 3-0 to SAFC.

  5. Phil D November 12, 2018 at 11:04 am #

    2-0 to the Lads. Another clean sheet.

    I’ll still be using my trusty jam jar for a cuppa but…
    …2-3 away win with a few personnel changes

    0-5 as Morecambe decide to concentrate on the league and field a weak team

    I can’t get there to see that elusive 4-3 win to The Lads

  9. Mike November 12, 2018 at 8:20 pm #

    The Lads to win 1-0,need to keep the winning run going.

      You’ll hate me for saying I intend to reinstate the prize for the next game!

      • Mike November 14, 2018 at 9:05 pm #

        No problem, the ‘glory’ in guessing right and Lads winning is prize enough.

    Shrimps 0 Cats 6

    Ozturk, Oviedo, Diamond, Sinclair, Power, O’Nien – nothing like spreading the goals around and no-one whose name begins with an M on the score sheet. Ruiter has a solid performance, making two decent saves but is pretty quiet most of the time.

    Pete has the lobster risotto in The Midland while I make do with a bag of chips on the front.

    Love seaside resorts in the winter time.
