Nice and early again, here’s the second Guess the Score competition, with or without a prize, of the new season …
Amid all the gloom following our latest no-show, this time at Leicester where the consensus appears to be that we got two back only because City were by then cruising, there has at least been the excitement of the Great Sixer Debate (see the comments at https://safc.blog/2015/08/au-revoir-mvila-new-signing-sees-red-in-norwich-semi-rehearsal/, which can be summarised as Dan Tilley vs The World).
We all await Dan’s plucky comeback, but we await a Sunderland one rather more keenly. A win may not strictly speaking seem non-negotiable at this stage of the season, but a defeat or stuttering draw would drive a fair few of us to strong drink.
When City were last in the Premier, they beat us easily at Carrow Road and probably should have won the drawn game at the SoL – on their way down. We’ll need to improve on those performances as well as on the calamitous showing at the King Power Stadium.
The first 2015-2016 edition of Guess the Score failed to produce anyone pessimistic enough among our supporters, or sufficiently buoyant among the Leicester fans who entered, to select a 4-2 home win.
Can someone get it right about this coming Saturday? It may be for fun again, or it may be for a prize mug. Last season’s sponsors have not let us know but will probably do so this week.
As usual, the winner – of something or nothing – is the reader who is first to predict the correct score in the comments below, before kickoff. Norwich fans are naturally invited to take part (any prize heading to East Anglia would be suitably modified).
There will be no bonus awarded to the first reader who suggests M’Vila starts the game and picks up another red.

2-1 to safc. Another complete stab in the dark. Wonder how many men we will end with if bot Catts & M’Vila start
Oi! That score is taken. The mug is as good as mine.
Based on previous predictions for this encounter a very entertaining 3 – 3!
SAFC 3 – 0 Norwich, Dick gets it right and some of the players actually earn their cash!!!!!!!!!!
5-0 to SAFC….the revival begins.
4-1…Norwich just not good enough!…Hopefully?
Hate to say it and I hope I’m wrong but 1-2 to the Canaries.
STOP the negative vibes?
Having suffered laughing stock status from Leicester-based work colleagues all week (is it really only Tuesday?) and the mass media desire to see us “finally” go down this year – Sutton’s comments on Final score after 24 minutes, Murphy on MOTD later, even the Daily Mirror is taking the p*** today; my mood is hellish.
I expect a drab game with 2 ineffective teams and no goals, if we keep a clean sheet I guess that will be seen by some as a bonus after last week’s disgraceful performance.
The media will greet it with glee.
Don’t be suprised by the Mirror taking the P . They are now the official paper of the mags and feature ‘ exclusive ‘ interviews . Boycoutt !
My first choice has gone so 1-1
Pants scores a hat-trick and keeps a clean sheet. 3.0.
3-2 to Safc . Same failings as last week but we somehow manage to score more than we let in !
1 nil to Sunderland
Goal difference back to 0. A 4 – 2 home win it is.
Home win 2-1
clean sheet and a couple of goals -= 2-0 home win
After being 0-2 down after half an hour.
3-1. goals from Lens x2 and Johnson
