Monsieur Salut introduces another prize Guess the Score before embarking on a long trek through France, stopping for some disgusting but delicious andouillettes in Troyes on the way and arriving back in the UK on Wednesday night, ready for anything life throws at him (including tickets for Arsenal at home and Bournemouth away) … (more…)

A gift from New Zealand makes Stoke City v SAFC a prize Guess the Score

Thanks, Jake

We’ve had far too many must-wins and crunchers and season-deciders. They usually they turn out to be nothing of the sort. So let us just say the Guess the Score for Stoke City v Sunderland is open to all, Stokies included, and carries a prize. (more…)

Sunderland v West Bromwich Albion Guess the Score: let action replace words

Jake: 'restore our faith, Lads'

Hands up anyone who is looking forward to Saturday. In fact, there’ll be plenty. Support, loyalty, passion often transcend the lack of serious expectation. David Moyes and his team have made an abysmal start to the season, the sort that gets managers sacked in panic reaction from owners. (more…)

Sunderland v Crystal Palace prize Guess the Score. Duck-breaking time?

Jake says: 'have a go'

Let’s throw another mug into the ring and hope it doesn’t shatter into many pieces. A prize Salut! Sunderland mug – design to suit the allegiance of the winner so Palace fans can enter – is on offer for the Palace game. No one was correct on the QPR score (except our QPR interviewee, John […]

QPR v Sunderland: Guess the score

Jake says: 'have a go'

John McCormick writes: Rodney Marsh had moved from QPR by the time I went to live in London but they were still a club to admire. Panache, perhaps, would be the word that best fitted them as they came close, oh, so close, to winning the League, and how we neutrals wanted them to. (more…)

Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland. Guess the score, and maybe win a mug


John McCormick writes: At the start of the year I was at White Hart Lane, subbing for Sixer. I saw Jordan Pickford and the Hoff make their Premier League debuts, some six foot backs crowding Jermain Defoe out of the game and some soft goals after PVA put us in front. The final score was 4-1, […]

Sunderland v Everton Guess the Score. 2,000 Twitter followers so two mugs, not one

Jake: 'I could fly without wings (but also with them) ...'

Monsieur Salut invites entries for a prize edition of Guess the Score – and announces another little award, to a Sunderland-supporting television presenter … Mug is one of those words that can jump up and bite you on the backside. So let it be said straight away that it is no part of Salut! Sunderland‘s […]

Southampton ‘Guess the score’. No mugs here

John McCormick writes: We make the long trip to Southampton aiming to put a stop to the poor start to the season. And what team will we have out to do it? Kone, do you think, alongside new signing Javier Manquillo? Or perhaps Borini returning to feed and support Defoe? (more…)

Just before we abandon hope, it’s Shrewsbury in the league cup. Guess the score

Jake: 'M Salut is dishing out enough mugs to be sure of going broke'

So we had two correct predictions for SAFC v Boro, both from Middlesbrough fans (Smoggie and the WAY interviewee Thomas Keen). There was no prize mug for this match – they may be a bit sparse this season – so they must be feeling a little like those who pick the same lottery numbers every […]

Sunderland v Middlesbrough ‘Guess the Score’: a time for winning

Jake welcomes our near neighbours

It has been an eventful week. Much better than expected display at the Etihad, ruined by an unfortunate own goal, egg on Monsieur Salut’s face after he fell for an online reference to Graham Gooch being Lynden’s dad, insolent follow-up comment from Sixer and Malcolm Dawson and now speculation that Watford want and may land […]
