Southampton ‘Guess the score’. No mugs here

Salut Banner5(featured image)

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: 'the doubt has currently been removed - defo no prize'

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 […]

Manchester City v Sunderland Guess the Score: can we ruin Pep’s debut?

myug

Another opening day looms and, by the skin of our teeth, Sunderland kick off a 10th successive season in the Premier League. The new manager’s post-match e-mails will be given the title of Moyes on the Boys, a clear winner in the recent poll and suggested by a reader signing himself as JEL. Will it […]

Watford v Sunderland: Guess the Score that no longer matters too much

For one last time this season, Guess the Score. It might have mattered a great deal. It no longer does except for the very good reason that the massive travelling support, and the massive home support when it comes to it, richly deserve the added fillip of ending the season in style/ (more…)

Sunderland v Everton Guess the Score. Win to make Watford a party

Jake: 'heroics please, Lads'

Monsieur Salut says: win on Wednesday and the Lads should be given the freedom of Sunderland, whether or not that still entitles holders to drive their flocks of sheep across Wearmouth bridge. It wouldn’t make a bad season great but it would give us all proper reason to believe the future can be brighter (yes […]

Stoke City v SAFC Guess the Score. Not a weekend for the faint-hearted

It should not get much more nailbiting than this – but it may well do so between now and Watford away on the last day of the season. The weekend threatens to be tricky. Who would put it past an Alan Pardew side to roll over at St James’ Park, assuming he dislikes us more […]

Sunderland v Arsenal Guess the Score: Shakespeare, Shack and shaking expectation

Jake: 'the doubt has currently been removed - defo no prize'

So, Guess the Score is again a prize edition and again there’s a catch. Only a correct entry predicting a winning scoreline for Sunderland qualifies; it must be the first to be posted before kickoff to claim the prize. Since the cost would be borne by Monsieur Salut, and he supports Sunderland and we need […]

Norwich City v Sunderland Guess the Score: see us through it again

No, it doesn’t all come down to this one game. But if we leave aside the crazy mathematics that would theoretically allow for Newcastle to finish on 43 points while Palace and Watford went down with Villa, we know in our hearts what is at stake at Carrow Road on Saturday. (more…)
