Oh dear, muses Monsieur Salut. The piece below was prepared before the Cardiff debacle. Will anyone be left to predict a Sunderland win?

Everyone knows we can do it. Sadly, everyone also knows what seems to happen each time we say as much. So straight over to the Salut! Sunderland jury. Does the fight to scramble away from the bottom of the Championship start with a good result at Cardiff or is our plight about to get even […]

Middlesbrough vs SAFC Guess the Score. FA Cup: opportunity or hindrance when bottom?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Now that the players have presumably recovered from having supped far too many soft drinks on New Year’s Eve to be able to compete with Barnsley next day, there is that annual (for us) dilemma: do we really want to add an FA Cup run to a challenging fixtures list? Monsieur Salut’s heart says yes, […]

Nottingham Forest vs SAFC Guess the Score: redemption or repeat?

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

Let’s not waste too many words. Chris Coleman said his players allowed themselves to be intimidated by Sheffield United. Maybe; we were second best all over the pitch and the game was already beyond us when Asoro and Maja came on. (more…)

Wolves vs SAFC prize Guess the Score: a mountain to climb

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

The way hope was brushed aside as if no more than a slow, low-flying insect hardly inspires great confidence as Sunderland travel to Molineux, where Wolves are top, 10 points ahead of third place and winning games for fun, the last five of them on the trot.

Burton Albion vs SAFC Guess the Score: what could possibly go wrong?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Just look at the home and away table. Two wins, a draw and six defeats at home, nine goals scored but 21 shipped. What a catastrophic home record for any professional football side.

Aston Villa vs Sunderland prize Guess the Score: will Coleman deliver?

Don't worry if you support Cardiff: we'll find something to suit your tastes if you win

Will Sunderland return to the tradition of the post-match manager’s e-mail under Chris Coleman? If so, will his first be to salute a debut rather more impressive than the last author of such missives, David Moyes, managed with West Ham?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Just as Sunderland supporters were given two reasons to smile – the dismissal of Simon Grayson demanded by so many and a sudden leap to the heady heights of third bottom – a quick look at the Championship results and table showed the other sick man of North-eastern football suddenly feeling a lot more perky.
