This, then, is the fantasy for Vicarage Road.
Jermain Defoe returns from his Wembley triumph, hits more goals for Sunderland and launches David Moyes’ ultimately successful act of escapology.
Watford (a) becomes the first of several wins that somehow secure survival on or before that doddle of a closing fixture at little Stamford Bridge on May 21 when our best hope, as somoene else has already pointed out, may be that Chelsea are hung over and incapable after title celebrations.
Let us see how closely your predictions – and the realities to come – follow that narrative. It’s time once more to Guess the Score – and once again to aid the Bradley Lowery fighting fund in the process.
The first person to post the correct scoreline will receive the mini-edition of the Nick Barnes Matchbook, an inimitable collection of the notebook aides memoires and general pre-match jottings of the estimable BBC Radio Newcastle commentator. The cost will be borne by the small fund of advertising revenue Salut! Sunderland attracts – those pesky sponsored articles – in the knowledge that the publishers of Nick’s work pay a fiver of the purchase price into Bradley’s fund.
But what if you already have the Matchbook, don’t want one (sorry, Nick) or support a team other than Sunderland, such as Watford or Chelsea? Well, we have that covered, too – you get a mug designed in accordance with your allegiance and Monsieur Salut shoves the fiver Bradkey’s way.
Have a go. And Ha’way the Lads.
Don’t forget. This site is jam-packed with content worth exploring. There are archives going back to 2007 – yes, it’s now 10 years since we breathed our first – and all sorts of links to enable you to have a peek at what we’ve been up to now and in the past.
And come back for a great Watford Who are You? interview, which should appear here either late tomorrow or, more likely, on Thursday morning.
Salut! Sunderland: Tell us what Graham Taylor meant to you as a Watford supporter, though you’d he hard-put to improve on your Facebook tribute* to Graham
Del Day, Watford fan: Taylor WAS Watford FC as far as I am concerned. I started going in ’78 and Taylor has always been synonymous with everything we have achieved as a club. The man is a legend, in the truest sense, and his legacy will remain as the beating heart of our club forever more. I cried when I heard the news, that’s how much he means to me. Both my daughters have Taylor as a middle name. I wanted ‘Blissett’ but the wife kyboshed that idea.
* Del runs an independent music PR company, Ark PR, a small boutique booking agency, Big City Lights, and a record label, Maiden Voyage Recording Company with his pal Danny Wilson. This was his Facebook posting when Graham Taylor died:
RIP the mighty Graham Taylor, an absolute legend to us Watford fans. An inspiration who achieved miracles for us, a true Hornet 100 per cent and a good man. Thanks for the memories, rest in peace… Sad day.

No winner: the prize carries forward to Leicester on Tuesday night
I think this will be either a tense single goal win for us or a pasting. I will go for 2-1 to the lads.
In the grand cosmic scheme of things, with the love of the nation pouring down on Jermain ‘cos of his wonderful relationship with Bradley, and now Duncan’s heroics saving drowning pensioners, you’d think the rest of the premier league would let us win all our remaing fixtures…..
It’s April 1st so why haven’t we had any 10 or 11 nil predictions? Our 10 game mini season starts here with at least 17 points needed from 30. It would be marvellous to start off with a 3 pointer but I fear a repeat of last season is more likely. 2 – 2.
Ha’way Eric! Predicting any Sunderland win is appropriate for All Fool’s Day!
2 – 0 to The Hornets I fear!
The Lads to win 3-2 and who knows what might happen then.
Watford 0 Sunderland 1
Defoe to score, on a roll. The start of another great escape?
Predicted on the BBC predictor a 2-1 away victory.
3 -0 to SAFC Defoe hat trick
Assuming J o’ S is missing injured, I can’t see Billy Dodgy stopping them scoring 3 so it’s time for my 3-3 to come good.
A mug please.
1-3 to the lads it’s about time Januzaj got one.
0-2 Defoe, Borini, like I’ve been saying for weeks.
