I have had fun all week with the disparate band of people in various lands who post comments to the club-by-club part of the ESPN website – http://espnfc.com/blog/_/name/sunderland/id/1359?cc=5739. (more…)

Sunderland v Manchester United: wise babies say guess the score

Who couldn't my dad be a Man Utd supporter?

Guess the score in Sunderland v Manchester United and you could win a life-changing prize or, if we’re clean out of stock, a mug … Xuana does not know it – she was only one this week – but her dad is hoping against better judgement for big things this weekend from the reason for […]

SAFC v Norwich City: keep spirits high as you Guess the Score

Jake: I created this in less gloomy times

  As promised, Salut! Sunderland is on an upbeat track. There is a time for carping and seriously critical analysis but that time is in the days immediately following some disappointment on the field. Plenty of such material was published here and that is how it should be. But now, an absolutely vital match of […]

Is it past midnight? Then let’s begin this week’s Guess the Score. I live in hope that one of our moneyed readers will one day come up with meaningful prizes for the little competitions.

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 […]

Crusty folk-rocker goads Arsenal whingers and says guess the WBA score

arsene

Monsieur Salut’s hibernation is nearly over. It’s back to France at the weekend – with any luck catching Bennett and Barnes in commentary from the Hawthorns – without even the need to plan a return for the 40th anniversary cup final in which we forlornly hoped Sunderland might feature. There’s lots of riveting nostalgia to […]

SAFC v Arsenal: no need to fear Wilshere or Walcott, then. Guess the Score

Jake: 'any chance of a lift, mate?'

Three games – Swansea at home, Wigan and Reading away, and not a single reader came up with a correct scoreline prediction. See if you can do better with Arsenal at home. Snowed off is not an acceptable entry … (more…)

West Ham sliced, now for the cup: guess the Bolton score

Let's see off Bolton in similar style, says Jake

Before getting on to Bolton Wanderers and Guess the Score, here is one small piece of unfinished business from the West Ham match. For my last words on the satisfactory afternoon’s work on Saturday, I shared with readers of the ESPN FC site the thought, already expressed on these pages, that the good, loud contingent […]

Guess SAFC v West Ham score – and is Bolton fan owed a mug?

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

Last week, I honestly thought someone, possibly a Bolton fan, had decided the FA Cup game had 2-2 written all over it. I could find no trace of such a prediction; did I just dream it? If anyone can point me in its direction, then the man, woman or child who made it is owed […]
