Ho ho ho(a)’way the lads

NB: BECAUSE OF THE SITE BREAKDOWN – AND CONTINUING ISSUES ESPECIALLY WITH COMMENTS – THE BRADFORD CITY GUESS THE SCORE HAS MOVED TO OUR OPEN FACEBOOK GROUP: PLEASE CLICK ON

Well we’re back but only after a fashion, says Monsieur Salut. There are still gremlins at work. We hope a horridly frustrating few days, the loss of articles already published or prepared and a real fear for the site’s future, may soon be behind us.

But some functions still seem not to be working – I could not expand articles from the home page samplers for example – so the best we can say for now is that at least we can be seen.

If and when you are able to do so, Guess the Score in the important Boxing Day match against Bradford City at the Stadium of Light.

Updatecurrently at 1.30 am on 26th December it appears that the reply boxes are not functioning correctly (Malcolm)

Charlie Methven asked for a 40,000+ gate and he’s got it. There could be no finer occasion or setting for the Lads to bounce back from disappointing but honourable defeat at Portsmouth.

I shall dig out the entries posted before our site crashed and those scorelines will be considered taken, so look out for any reply inviting an alternative if you post yours before I get round to that.

There’ll be the traditional Salut! Sunderland mug for the first to post the correct result. You’ll need a UK delivery address and we’ll find a suitable alternative prize for a Bradford winner.

It remains only to offer a hearty Merry Christmas to all – contributors, advertisers, sponsors, all connected with SAFC and, above all, our readers.

Ha’way the Lads.

    The eternal optimist says it’s nice to get the first guess in and it’s a sure fower nowt to the lads. Was it a penalty on Saturday don’t think so loovens was half a yard off the pace and Oli Hawkins was looking for it , I was sat in with the Pompey lot and level with the penalty area so had a clear view Hawkins caught his heel on loovens shin and went down that cost us the game whilst I agree loovens was slow think he has received unnecessary criticism for losing us the game and I have watched it over and over in slow motion.

    Tend to agree Mel and think three of our sendings off have been harsh but we got the rub of the green today. Flanagan could easily have seen red and they had a good goal not given.
