SAFC v Everton: no Cahill, no Webb to fall for an ‘Osman’. Guess the Score

Jake: the nearly overlooked detail

Tim Cahill been shunted off to New York. Howard Webb is demoted to pub league football, or whatever is deemed his punishment for stopping Sunderland being four-up at half time against Newcastle, and no other referee in the world will surely, ever again, fall for the Leon Osman penalty trick. That still leaves the small […]

Jake: can stress really be good for you?

  As promised, Salut! Sunderland is on an upbeat track.

SAFC v Fulham: guess the score (but 3-0 has already been chosen)

Jake's so far away in Spain, that the chances are he'll have to opt for square

Good news for Pam Stokoe, whose name has special resonance around these parts. Her mug, won with a correct if disloyal 0-1 forecast for the SAFC v Arsenal game, has finally been ordered. Good news for Eric, who posts regularly to the Comments section and invariably offers a prediction. I will take his 3-0, which […]
