Jake: 'get that win'

Monsieur Salut writes: each matchday, ESPN FC expects me – or Pete Sixsmith when I am away – to send a report with a brief summary of the game followed by out-of-10 ratings for manager and team. (more…)

Burnley and Liverpool Guess the Scores. Prizes at the treble

Guess the Score

Liverpool’s ultimately easy 4-1 win against Stoke City confirms what we already knew – that Monday’s game against Jurgen Klopp’s side will be tough. Even if Simon Mignolet keeps his place and makes more errors than usual, they have bags of goals in them. That makes Saturday’s game all the more important. The good work of […]

Prize Guess the Score: cock-a-hoop Chelsea, rock bottom SAFC and Eric Roy

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

Can Sunderland make a nonsense of the somewhat contrasting league positions and return to winning form? No one who saw our performance at Swansea, whether at the Liberty Stadium or watching abroad or on dodgy streams, would give us the slightest chance of ending Chelsea’s run of nine straight wins.

The only whinge from Bournemouth 1-2 SAFC: don’t drive Lamine Kone away

Kone: when will he return?

On Saturday, as remarked upon by everyone including Bournemouth fans, Sunderland’s support was magnificent. I came across one little Cherries snipe about the one-minute silence being interrupted at our end and even that was simply wrong. The noise wasn’t much and came entirely from the concourse, where no referee’s whistle signalling a tribute was about […]

Guess the Score by which Sunderland will beat Bournemouth and start the revival

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

Monsieur Salut digs deep yet again – and promises to keep up the selective double-prize offer until Sunderland finally win a Premier League game … Honest, I swear I kept a straight face while writing that headline. No, I am not any more confident than the next sufferer. But Sunderland have to win some time […]

Sunderland that it is considering the possibility of scrapping the Premier Rate phone numbers, otherwise known as ripoff lines, that hit fans in the pocket when they call the SoL – without producing significant income for the club. That, at least, is my interpretation – a fair one, […]

Sunderland? Right first time: two prize mugs. And what could possibly be a safer bet than to offer any […]
