Barnsley vs Sunderland Guess the Score: the need to show we’re a Championship force

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

As Paul Summerside put it here earlier this week, Saturday’s game at Oakwell is a much more important test of Simon Grayson’s Sunderland than a 2nd league cup tie could ever be. The result will not determine the course of our season. But the psychological impact of a good one, which means three points not […]

SAFC vs Leeds United Guess the Score: who’ll be on top on Saturday?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Malcolm Dawson writes….I nearly put SAFC v Dirty Leeds in the headline in an attempt to attract a few irate United fans along to our Guess the Score competition but opted for diplomacy rather than provocation. If you’ve never been here before then all you have to do is be the first to correctly predict […]

Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland Guess the Score: extending Grayson’s run?

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

  Pete Sixsmith had a long trek home from East Anglia yesterday. I bet the fish and chips tasted especially good at Wetherby after a fine 3-1 win. We’ll doubtless hear from him some time day – his report of the match, and his travels leading up to it, is eagerly awaited. In the meantime, […]

Norwich vs SAFC prize Guess the Score: a repeat of 2016 would be nice

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

We’ve had a first winner in this season’s Guess the Score series and it’s yet another correct prediction from Paul Devine, a Sunderland supporter exiled in the Netherlands.

Chelsea prize Guess the Score: ‘it’s our party, we’ll cry if we want to’

ano

With apologies to the late Lesley Gore and the writers of her pop classic – it took no fewer than four of them: Walter Gold John Gluck Jr, Herb Weiner Seymour Gottlieb, and their song of teenage betrayal was elevated to new heights in the 1981 version of the non-Eurythmics, non-Sunderland Dave Stewart and Barbar […]

Arsenal ‘Guess the Score’: just a matter of how many Defoe scores?

ano

We all know relegated teams like to turn it on for the swansong. After the meekest of surrenders to Swansea, SAFC players – especially those with an eye on lucrative summer transfers – will accordingly raise their game at Arsenal. Two for Defoe, one more for Billy Jones as we romp to a 3-1 win. […]

Middlesbrough vs Sunderland Guess the Score as the curtain crashes down

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

Let’s not beat about the bush. Wrinkly Pete’s rose-tinted crystal ball couldn’t save us and nor could my sister and her family’s Boro passions save them from the drop. We are both going down, leaving little more than pride – and avoidance of bottom place – at stake at the Riverside on Wednesday. The maths […]
