SAFC vs Luton Town Guess the Score: we won’t get many better chances to go second

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the image to enter

We know it. They know it. The Charlton game was important but Saturday’s battle of third-top, Sunderland, versus second-top, Luton Town, is immense. The stakes are perfectly simple. Win and Sunderland go second in Luton’s place, still enjoying a game in hand. Lose and we lose that game-in-hand advantage as the Hatters will have stretched […]

The Charlton Athletic vs Sunderland prize Guess the Score. Not quite blind faith

He's not in a good mood so no size this time. Click the image to have a go anyway

This started as something resembling a blind edition of Guess the Score Monsieur Salut has faith in Sunderland AFC but, as work began on this, was about to leave for France for the new year. As a result, he needed to prepare the regular features in advance, so far in advance that he did not […]

Blackpool vs Sunderland Guess the Score: seaside frolics?

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the image to enter

New Year’s day is part of a great English football tradition.

And Sunderland, accompanied by 7-8,000 supporters, are at Blackpool. A special […]

Portsmouth vs SAFC prize Guess the Score: our cup final or theirs?

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Monsieur Salut has a ticket. The ongoing bore of train strikes – who is the more obstinate, South West Railways or the RMT? – means a car journey down to Fratton Park … It’s certainly a big game. But is it our game of the season given that they are five points ahead of us […]
