I have promised a prize in each Guess the Score unless or until relegation is a certainty. That holds. Pete Sixsmith expects mighty embarrassment on Saturday. Everton have been in terrific form. We, er, have not. I have a horrible premonition about Gus Poyet’s post-match e-mail ruing that killer third goal, just when we looked [...]
Here’s a deal. I will offer a prize mug for each remaining game in which we start with a mathematical chance of staying up. I will even send mugs off to those kind enough to have become Friends of Salut! Sunderland – eyes right please – just as soon as I can persuade myself I [...]
Guess the Score – absent without leave prior to Liverpool vs SAFC – returns along with news of a great competition where the prize will be tickets, travel and accommodation for two for the Champions League final in Lisbon …
This week, I have deliberately ignored any article, one line or in print, with a headline suggesting words by Gus Poyet or players about the game at Norwich City on Saturday. Any expression of confidence, even hope, is meaningless. All that matters is the result. We know that without being told.

I’d prefer you to leave your predictions there but will regard any here as eligible provided they are the first to nominate a particular result. Read on for a [...]
Cup final week, even if technically not, so let’s go early with Guess the Score – and let’s also have a bumper entry … A Caribbean cruise? No. Tickets for the World Cup Final in Brazil? Not quite. That’s the bad news. The good is that the League Cup final Guess the Score is not [...]
Roll up for the great Salut! Sunderland Guess the Score ahead of the visit to the only ground in the world that’s quieter than the Library, aka Highbury.
In the piece I have just written for ESPN, and which now appears at the Sunderland pages, I began by raising the question of whether we are just in one cup competition too many.
