SAFC vs Leeds United Guess the Score: who’ll be on top on Saturday?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Malcolm Dawson writes….I nearly put SAFC v Dirty Leeds in the headline in an attempt to attract a few irate United fans along to our Guess the Score competition but opted for diplomacy rather than provocation.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Guess the Score: extending Grayson’s run?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

  Pete Sixsmith had a long trek home from East Anglia yesterday. I bet the fish and chips tasted especially good at Wetherby after a fine 3-1 win. We’ll doubtless hear from him some time day – his report of the match, and his travels leading up to it, is eagerly awaited. In the meantime, […]

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

We’ve had a first winner in this season’s Guess the Score series and it’s yet another correct prediction from Paul Devine, a Sunderland supporter exiled in the Netherlands. He sensed we would draw 1-1 with Derby County and was right. As I write, the Bury League Cup game is still to come. There may be […]

Whoever who support, it’s a great read, taking in Sixer’s experiences of seeing SAFC play Bury. Monsieur Salut thought he had missed a rather important shared experience of the more distant past – that awful Boxing Day […]

Putting the 5-0 hammering by Celtic ‘in context’. We have a winner, plus Derby buildup

Just a few of Jake's generic Salut! Sunderland images ...

After the final pre-season friendly ended, appropriately in cricket season, with Celtic declaring on five for none, a sports journalism graduate called Paul Nicholson caused amusement at Twitter with his plea for the result to be put into context. Celtic were ahead of us in preparations, he argued with extraordinary generosity towards players who collected […]

Here yesterday, gone today. Have SAFC messed up Derek McInnes appointment?

salut new

   The implications may be inconsequential. They may be utterly alarming. Here from the Aberdeen FC site: BREAKING NEWS | Aberdeen FC is pleased to confirm that Derek McInnes and Tony Docherty have elected to remain at Pittodrie I thought it must be a spoof. Sadly – see http://www.afc.co.uk/news/9551.php#.WULf6saQ17o – not. What on earth went […]

We all know relegated teams like to turn it on for the swansong. After the meekest of surrenders to Swansea, SAFC players – especially those with an eye on lucrative summer transfers – will accordingly raise their game at Arsenal. Two for Defoe, one more for Billy Jones as we romp to a 3-1 win. […]
