Sunderland vs Portsmouth: a question of points no longer in our hands

He's not in a good mood so no size this time. Click the image to have a go anyway

Even as I wrote last week that we would remain masters of our destiny and go up automatically provided we matched our rivals’ results, I was riddled with doubt, says Monsieur Salut. A quick look at the fixtures at the top end of League One table showed there was no room for the least slip. […]

Peterborough United vs Sunderland: the stakes are high

We did what was necessary against Doncaster Rovers. We are still masters of our own destiny. But that could change if we falter against Posh. With so few games left, there is no further leeway. The results of others have to be matched. If they are, we go up automatically, without the ordeal of playoffs. […]

Sunderland vs Doncaster Rovers: dare we even ask?

Jake

Will it be a Good Friday or are we heading for purgatory? With some trepidation, Salut! Sunderland invites readers to do what none could hope to do before the Coventry game and correctly predict the outcome of SAFC vs Doncaster Rovers. It is reasonable to suggest that the Easter weekend will bring a clearer idea […]

SAFC vs Coventry City Guess the Score: the home run

There IS a prize and you know what it is. Click the banner to have a go

When you are in sight of an automatic promotion place, three successive home games might appear something of a gift. But nerves play a part, too, and often enough this season Sunderland have suffered less in this respect on their travels than at the Stadium of Light, says Monsieur Salut. The first of that trio […]

Sunderland vs Burton Albion Guess the Score: a night to go second?

Towards the end of last season, not quite a year ago so not at the very end, Burton Albion visited the Stadium of Light, won 2-1 and sent Sunderland down for the second successive season. The fact that most of us were already resigned to relegation made it little easier to stomach and the Netflix […]

It is obvious enough. Time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves down and put together the run we need to overtake Barnsley and leave Portsmouth and Charlton behind, says Monsieur Salut. Of course Sunday was a great occasion and a game we all wanted to win. But promotion is – for me – by far […]

Sunderland vs Walsall prize Guess the Score. Playing catch-up on Luton and Barnsley

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

Monsieur Salut says: we will go early with Guess the Score for this Saturday. Pete Sixsmith’s Soapbox from Barnsley will not be with us until later in the day and we also need to check whether our headlines are being ‘grabbed’ by the newsnow.co.uk aggregator (Sixer’s Sevens seems to have avoided their radar last night) […]

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

We are all excited about Wembley and 38,979 of us will be there in the designated Sunderland seats on March 31. But let us not lose sight of this season’s key objective: promotion. Two away games loom, Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday and Barnsley next Tuesday. Both are vital. We must do at least as well […]
