Predictions Table: Sunderland mess up, as do Newcastle and Swansea

  Stephen Goldsmith writes: Sunderland fail to win the must win games of all must win games and the taste it leaves is beyond sour. And I eat lemons as most people eat oranges so I should know! As far as the Predictions League goes, Malcolm has finally lost his grip on the leader’s position. […]

Well despite the apparent gremlins in the studio, the second podcast is up and running, get on it by clicking into this link: https://soundcloud.com/stephendgoldsmith/salut-sunderland-podcast-1 But it’s back to predictions – my reliable laptop means I am forced to bring you the table during the week rather than now. Sure people can live with that. Did […]

Predictions: Sunderland, QPR, Newcastle, Stoke, West Brom, Swansea – how will they fare?

Jake: 'this is the place where you find true support, unconditional commitment'

  The prediction league table doesn’t look too healthy for some of us. It just goes to show the moment Malcolm slowed down with his version of the league tables, I lost my way a little – both with the table accuracy and my performance levels. Sixer and I are particularly hard done by here […]

Salut! Predictions: Sunderland, Fulham, Newcastle, Swansea, Arsenal, Spurs – How will they fare?

NB: Completed but inexplicably not posted by kickoff time. Sorry, Monsieur Salut’s 1-0 prediction already blown to pieces but he also had a punt on 4-3 ….   I have vocally embraced a well used assumption a lot today, writes Stephen Goldsmith. The one that goes along the lines of “Don’t worry, we’re bound to […]

Salut! Predictions: Sunderland, Baggies, Newcastle, Southampton, Wigan, Reading – How will they fare?

Stephen Goldsmith writes, I listened with interest to Martin O’Neill telling me he was an advocate of the winter break today during the pre-match presser. There was a small turn out due to most of the written media witnessing our dearest friends up the road in Ukraine Thursday night, and it appeared to make Martin […]

Predictions League: Southampton, Sunderland, Newcastle, Q.P.R, West Ham, Everton – How will they fare?

I realise our massive fan base will be more than anxious to check out the latest Salut! Predictions League table, but they’ll have to wait. Lack of time and a steward’s enquiry into the accuracy of the league table, means I will get to it during the not so festive period. Right in between the […]

Predictions: Sunderland, Man Utd/ City, Newcastle, Stoke, Everton – How will they fare?

A very productive week for all concerned in the Salut! Predictions League, a fact which must frustrate Bill and Robert no ends as in other weeks they could, and would, have moved up the table swiftly – so crap are our usual collective predictions. This week, however, no fewer than five of us gained 4 […]

Predictions league: Sunderland, Chelsea, Newcastle, Fulham, Everton, Spurs – How will they fare?

Salut panel member thinks long and hard about the weekend fixtures.

Jeremy has shown Sunderland it can be done! After weeks of propping up the table, a cool four points see him fly up it. Colin also managed four and Robert three, meaning quite a productive week for the lads in the lower half. Apart from Bill, that is, who is surely only keeping the foot […]

Salut predictions: SAFC, Norwich, Newcastle, Wigan, QPR, Aston Villa – who will prevail?

Last week the entire team showed honourable optimism predicting a clear home win for The Lads. Well we all know what happened and so the effect that the game had on the all important predictions league was zilch. Elsewhere, Jeremy came up with a correct scoreline in the Saints v Sinners (sorry Mags) game to […]

Predictions League: Sunderland, Baggies, Newcastle, Southampton, Liverpool, Swansea – How will they fare?

I think it goes without saying that we all just KNEW that Q.P.R would have an appointment sorted in time for our game. But, at the old cliche goes, one game at a time n all that! let’s see how many go for the tactic of predicting Sunderland to win and Newcastle to lose this […]
