Southampton v SAFC Guess the Score: we’d rather beat Arsenal but …

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

Would you settle for a Sunderland defeat at Southampton on Wednesday, ending our interest in the EFL Cup, and a home win on Saturday? Me too, if your answer was yes. Of course, wins in both games would be even better. But whereas beating the Saints would be nice enough, and stir dreams of a […]

Sunderland v West Brom: random thoughts on Rondon, Vic Halom and Baggies anthem

Sunderland v West Bromwich Albion Guess the Score: let action replace words

Jake: 'restore our faith, Lads'

Hands up anyone who is looking forward to Saturday. In fact, there’ll be plenty. Support, loyalty, passion often transcend the lack of serious expectation. David Moyes and his team have made an abysmal start to the season, the sort that gets managers sacked in panic reaction from owners. (more…)

Sunderland v Crystal Palace prize Guess the Score. Duck-breaking time?

Jake says: 'have a go':

Let’s throw another mug into the ring and hope it doesn’t shatter into many pieces. A prize Salut! Sunderland mug – design to suit the allegiance of the winner so Palace fans can enter – is on offer for the Palace game. No one was correct on the QPR score (except our QPR interviewee, John […]

Sunderland v Middlesbrough ‘Guess the Score’: a time for winning

Jake welcomes our near neighbours

It has been an eventful week. Much better than expected display at the Etihad, ruined by an unfortunate own goal, egg on Monsieur Salut’s face after he fell for an online reference to Graham Gooch being Lynden’s dad, insolent follow-up comment from Sixer and Malcolm Dawson and now speculation that Watford want and may land […]
