Whether the revolution is over or on hold, just waiting for a new leader, there’s business to be done.
Kevin Ball has passion and knowledge, commands respect and does his level best. No one could prepare players better than he’ll be doing for the third round Capital One cup game against Peterborough.
You’d want him on your side in the trenches, but he’d be an NCO, not a basic squaddie and you’d tend to do as he said. So no little player revolts, kindergarten tantrums, smuggled letters home telling of mental and physical cruelty.
Let us see whether those qualities, which may be short of what is needed for a Premier League manager (though wouldn’t it be great if they were not?), and the dismissal of the wicked headmaster and expulsion of his bullying prefects can fire the Lads into producing a proud, determined and winning performance.
Since we all need cheering up, let’s restore the modest prize. It won’t happen every game – some Guess the Scores will be just for fun, if fun is what supporting Sunderland currently means – but tonight’s winner, if there is one gets a Salut! Sunderland mug, suitably adapted if a Posh fan correctly predicts the score first.
Usual rules: be first, post your scoreline prediction before kickoff. That scoreline should be how things stand at the end of normal time plus, if then level, extra time. Ignore the possibility of a penalty shootout. Monsieur Salut’s decision will be final.
And if you want to read more about SAFC v Posh, Robert Graves, manager of the Peterborough supporters’ football team, answered the “Who are You?” questionnaire and the resulting interview appears at https://safc.blog/2013/09/safc-vs-peterborough-who-are-you-itll-soon-be-a-league-fixture/
Q … name the Premier top four in order. And the three for the drop
Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea. West Brom, Hull, and yeah Sunderland (sorry).
