Firstly, thanks from Monsieur Salut to his noble deputy, Malcolm Dawson, for his sterling efforts to keep the site afloat in troubled waters.
I have a borrowed laptop. The French keyboard is driving me mad as is the absence of all manner of things I seemed able to do on my newish but frozen Mac (newish but under a guarantee I need to travel 1,000km to invoke).
Malcolm is going way past the call of unpaid duty to get everything posted but is also having to cope with all the fiddly, twiddly bits of this site’s dashboard that still baffle me from time to time. So please be understanding if a posting or use of images is afflicted by gremlins.
As if this were not bad enough, there has been a deluge of high-minded nonsense from down Essex (and maybe N London) way as Spurs supporters, indignant at Sunderland’s failure to e-mail three points in advance or stand back and let their side win without a whimper, have vented their rage. Read about the game at Martin’s Musings – the manager’s customary post-match e-mail – and in Pete Sixsmith’s superb analysis. Take a look at the comments, too, if you wish, and join the debate.
Then guess tomorrow’s score at Goodison.
And the other rollover? Well, no one got 0-0 for SAFC v Spurs so I will carry forward the prize – a Martin O’Neill ”Team of all Talents” mug (NB Tottenham fans; the slogan continues ”work in progress”) – and make it a pair of mugs for Everton v Sunderland. The design will be modified accordingly if a non-SAFC supporter wins.
Usual rules apply: first to post the correct scoreline wins, subject to M Salut’s decision being final. Entries valid for the time posted even if held for moderation.
Ha’way the Lads. Or Allez les Mecs …
