SAFC vs Sheffield Wednesday prize Guess the Score: we’re the underdogs

Guess the Reading-SAFC score and you could win a mug - whoever you support

It is a fact of life as we find it, says Monsieur Salut. Sunderland start the Carabao Cup tie (league cup to you and me) against the Owls on Thursday night as lower-league underdogs. While we all hope that situation will last for only one season – unless, contrary to the expectations of many of […]

Click Jake's image to enter

? Back in 2007, Sunderland went to Luton for the last game of the season as a side already promoted to the Premier League under Roy Keane. A sensational 5-0 victory, and Birmingham’s defeat at Preston, gave Keano the title. This is how, 11 years ago, the youthful Salut! Sunderland recorded the win. Less than […]

Sunderland vs Charlton and the return of the prize Guess the Score

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

Monsieur Salut writes: roll up, roll up to place your predicted scoreline for the opening game of our return to the third tier – or to claim old prizes I somehow overlooked (one Evertonian, Bernard Walker, is in that category and will receive his I-won’t-let-this-change-me award, a mug, for correctly forecasting the dismal result of […]

SAFC vs Wolverhampton Wanderers prize Guess the Score: two farewells to Championship football

An example of Jody's work, which he readily consented to being reproduced here**

    Ignore any rumour that the BBC Radio Newcastle has asked its Durham CCC man Martin Emmerson to return to the Stadium of Light commentary box in place of Nick Barnes given the prospect of a cricket-style score in Sunderland’s final game of the season. It’s a mischievously intriguing thought all the same. (more…)

Today, we hand over the penultimate prize Guess the Score* to a three-year-old girl who has embarked, even at such tender an age, on a lifetime of what we all know supporting Sunderland brings.

SAFC vs Burton Albion prize Guess the Score: a mere battle for second bottom?

Guess the Reading-SAFC score and you could win a mug - whoever you support

First of all, let Salut! Sunderland add its tribute to the supporters who have put up with this season’s woeful absence of quality, commitment and results and attended games week after week. Almost as a further act of torture, the mathematical possibility of survival cannot vanish altogether if SAFC beat Burton Albion in what otherwise […]

Reading vs SAFC Guess the Score: the clock ticking down

Jake: a touch of the blues

Monsieur Salut writes: by the time you read this, I’ll be on holiday and trying very hard not to think about football … We have an oddly anonymous Reading Who are You? still to come – maybe they’re all recluses in the Thames Valley – and the result, as I write before the Leeds game, […]

Monsieur Salut writes: a family holiday looms so this is being prepared between Black Monday, perhaps the defining moment of a wretched season when even a half-decent performance was undone by the usual defensive frailties, and whatever happens at Leeds.
