Sunderland vs Bolton: recreate the spirit that saw off Chelsea and Everton

Jake: '

Amid all the dross that flows from sportsmen given media platforms, without or perhaps usually with the aid of ghostwriters, a refreshingly incisive summing-up of the awful decline of Sunderland AFC appears in the Sunderland Echo column of Gary Rowell. This hero of Sunderland’s history – his proudest moment as a player for the club […]

Burnley and Liverpool Guess the Scores. Prizes at the treble

Click on Jake's banner and you go to the Guess the Score posting for this game. Have a go ...

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: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

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. (more…)

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

Back at the back

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: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

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 […]

SAFC’s promising response as West Ham site toasts victory in ripoff lines campaign

Jake: 'you don't talk to the likes of us, Ellis, so how can we be blamed if we get somethign wrong?

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, […]
