Sunderland vs Manchester City: prize Guess the Score. It’s their cup final

Jake: 'forget the mugs: Monsieur Salut has a better class of prize these days'

Cup final week, even if technically not, so let’s go early with Guess the Score – and let’s also have a bumper entry … A Caribbean cruise? No. Tickets for the World Cup Final in Brazil? Not quite. That’s the bad news. The good is that the League Cup final Guess the Score is not […]

Sunderland v Southampton Guess the Score: unwanted distraction or more glory?

Guess the Score in Derby County vs SAFC. Click on Jake's image to enter. Derby fans welcome to have a go

In the piece I have just written for ESPN, and which now appears at the Sunderland pages, I began by raising the question of whether we are just in one cup competition too many. In the time between starting to write and, after an interruption for a family chore, finishing the article, I reached my […]

Sunderland v Hull: Guess the Score, make Raich Carter, Steve Bruce miserable

at what cost

We have ever-presents at this site, either every home game or virtually every game home and away. Sixer gets to development squad games, too, and would doubtless turn out even if the Under 7s were playing away to Rhyl. Not all of us can claim similar goodliness. Some live so far away that the North […]

The Newcastle v Sunderland Guess the Score: not 1-9, not 5-1

Ye olde days, even before Jermain's super strike

I may have used that headline before. I hope the last bit – “not 5-1” – is not only right but replaced in real life by a scoreline starting with 0 and followed by at least 1. Sunderland won’t win 9-1 though I bet they said the same before December 5 1908. Salut! Sunderland is […]

I’d love to see Gus Poyet put out a winning team but I’d love even more for that winning team to be drawn heavily from players not always involved in Premier action. (more…)

Manchester United vs Sunderland Guess the Score: Wembley calling

Jake: 'forget the mugs: Monsieur Salut has a better class of prize these days'

No rocket science needed. Avoid defeat and we’re at Wembley. Lose 1-0 and we’re out if it stays that way in extra time.. That is only one-goal defeat that sends us straight out. A 2-1 defeat after extra time means penalties while 3-2, 4-3, 5-4 etc means we win on away goals. Correct me if […]
