West Bromwich Albion vs Sunderland Guess the Score: can we, will we?

Jake: 'forget the mugs: Monsieur Salut has a better class of prize these days'

Is a mug the way to a despairing Sunderland fan’s heart? Would the already rosy life, relatively, of  a Baggie be made complete by having something new to pour his tea into? There is very little Monsieur Salut wants to say about the third Guess the Score prize competition in a week. It is painful enough […]

Burnley vs Sunderland Guess the Score as Rodwell admits supporting SAFC’s tough

Jake: 'let's see if we can finally beat them'

This is a Guess the Score and Who are You? combined for the FA Cup 3rd round replay at Burnley. Salut! Sunderland is not on a go-slow or work-to-rule or in any greater sulk than usual. It just seemed unnecessary to run yet another interview with a supporter of a team we will by tomorrow […]

Monsieur Salut introduces another prize Guess the Score ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup 3rd Round to at home to Burnley, against whom we have something to prove (though most of us might feel strongly that the point should be made, and three points taken, when the return league fixture comes round in March) … No […]

Just a quick update ahead of our two games over the New Year period, away to Burnley tomorrow and at home to Liverpool 48 hours later. It seemed sensible to bring together Guess the Score into one joint competition, though structured to allow for single entries too. (more…)

Burnley and Liverpool Guess the Scores. Prizes at the treble

Guess the Score

Liverpool’s ultimately easy 4-1 win against Stoke City confirms what we already knew – that Monday’s game against Jurgen Klopp’s side will be tough. Even if Simon Mignolet keeps his place and makes more errors than usual, they have bags of goals in them. That makes Saturday’s game all the more important. The good work of […]

Manchester United vs SAFC Guess the Score: a gift of Christmas present

Jake: 'forget the mugs: Monsieur Salut has a better class of prize these days'

Monsieur Salut spoke with forked tongue. The Watford game was not, after all, the last of 2016 to be marked by a prize edition of Guess the Score. I have decided that even if it means the cat goes without food this Christmas, I will stump up for a mug for whoever is first to […]

We could beat Watford handsomely and […]

Prize Guess the Score: cock-a-hoop Chelsea, rock bottom SAFC and Eric Roy

Jake: 'forget the mugs: Monsieur Salut has a better class of prize these days'

Can Sunderland make a nonsense of the somewhat contrasting league positions and return to winning form? No one who saw our performance at Swansea, whether at the Liberty Stadium or watching abroad or on dodgy streams, would give us the slightest chance of ending Chelsea’s run of nine straight wins.

Roll up for another prize (see below) Guess the Score, Swansea City versus Sunderland … Had we lost at Bournemouth, drawn against Hull and failed to beat Leicester, the visit to Swansea would have had “must win” written all over it.
