There IS a prize and you know what it is

Pete Sixsmith was at the disappointing 1-1 draw in the ‘Donald derby’ – reflecting the divided loyalties of our Oxford-supporting owner Stewart Donald (and his executive director Charlie Methven) – and will be writing about his day at greater length over the next 12-24 hours

But with three home games coming up in quick succession, and assuming a slightly worrying degree of significance as Luton and Barnsley set the pace at the top, we need to get the usual features out of the way even if they upset the natural order of Salut! Sunderland business.

Monsieur Salut accordingly brings forward the Blackpool Guess the Score competition and thanks the many thousands of people who came here last week to sample the goodies on offer …

On New Year’s Day, the difference between Sunderland and Blackpool at Bloomfield Road was, inevitably, Josh Maja.

The Maja era has passed. The Will Grigg era is just beginning and Sunderland fans look forward to being able to acclaim new heroes: our highly regarded recruit from Wigan plus Charlie Wyke if only he can regain the form that made him seem a sound acquisition, the unpredictable Chris Maguire and anyone else who fancies scoring shedloads of goals for us.

The games are coming thick and fast. But we’ll maintain the prize element of Guess the Score as we approach the business end of what were pray will be just one season in League One.

Be first with the correct scoreline, have a UK delivery address and, whoever you support, there’ll one a prize for you.

A Sunderland winner would receive the usual mug, choosing the five names top appear on it…

Enter the prize Guess the Score – whoever you support

… and a Blackpool fans or neutral who wins the competition will be found a suitable alternative.

Ha’way the Lads.

    3 excuses to nil

    The rederee didnt have a clear view

    2-0

  7. CSB February 10, 2019 at 6:11 am #

    Sunderland 5 – 0 Blackpool, A well required goals landslide and quite a few personnel changes in the middle of the park.

  8. Eric012 February 10, 2019 at 8:04 am #

    I need to get up earlier. Mel and CSB have nicked my scores of choice. I can’t imagine that Brian The Mag’s effort is valid so let’s go for 3 – 0.

  9. Jeremy February 10, 2019 at 10:22 am #

    1-0

  10. Paul February 10, 2019 at 11:14 am #

    Keep predicting a Sunderland win, therefore a 1 nil to
    Blackpool.

  11. Wrinkly Pete February 10, 2019 at 9:27 pm #

    I will be there to will will on to a hat trick in our 4-3 win

  12. Mike February 10, 2019 at 10:59 pm #

    The Lads to win 4-2 and make the games in hand count.
