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 […]

SAFC vs Bristol Rovers prize Guess the Score: no more slips, please

Jake: 'wipe away the Walsall blues'

To listen to my Bristol Rovers-supporting or Bristol-dwelling friends and acquaintances, Sunderland vs Rovers is the mother of all home bankers. We’re up against a basket case of a club playing atrocious football and shipping goals as if for fun. What could possibly go wrong? (more…)

Barnsley Guess the Score: salute fighting spirit but it’s time to resume winning

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

Before introducing Guess the Score, Monsieur Salut has some words to add on the Max Power issue. They are not the words I originally wrote to accompany the article … What I felt and many others felt was the rank stupidity of Max Power, a gifted player enough suspected of possessing the suicidal tendencies often […]

Walsall vs SAFC Guess the Score: winner gets the new TFTRW book

There IS a prize and for once it's not a book

According to our Walsall “Who are You?” candidate, whose thoughts have just landed and will be published on Thursday, we will either be thrashed 4-1 “because we love being the underdogs”, or Sunderland will romp to victory “because sometimes the wheels really do come off”.

No prize but Guess he Svopre jyst for fun
