With no unnecessary fanfare, here is the latest prize Guess the Score.
Can Chris Coleman secure the first back-to-back wins of his Sunderland career? Will we rise to the occasion or slump, having beaten Hull, to the customary after-the-Lord-Mayor’s-Show defeat?
Everyone is entitled to enter – and I no longer see a good reason to exclude my fellow editors, so if John McCormick still tips Borini and – who was it? – Jozy to get our goals, let him enter.
Blues fans are also welcome. The Who are You? interviewee James Jenkinson’s unpalatable prediction of a 2-0 home win has already been entered automatically.
Otherwise, be first with the right score, have a UK delivery address and accept that Monsieur Salut’s decision is always final.
A book or a mug, the latter suitably designed if a Birmingham fan wins – awaits the winner.

Sample:Salut! Sunderland: Did you see our downfall coming and can we get out of our current mess?
James: I can’t say that I didn’t see Sunderland’s downfall coming because I would be lying. Their constant flirting with relegation and lack of investment every season meant that relegation was inevitable. Partner that with the constant changing of manager and a revolving door of players just meant for a lack of consistency. However, I can’t say at the start of the season I could see them so low. I predicted a mid table season for Sunderland so this has taken me by surprise.
Other thoughts on Sunderland – the club, fans, city/region, Chris Coleman?
Sunderland overall are a big club who arguably deserve better than this. The fans have always struck me as passionate and almost similar to Birmingham’s in the sense they have a bigger neighbour who tend to take the limelight. Sunderland as a city is one I haven’t really visited frequently but always comes across as industrial with very much working class folk. My views on Chris Coleman are somewhat mixed. With his huge success in the Euros in 2016 he seemed to make a huge statement in his managerial career, however he’s never really seemed cut out for Premier League management. I personally believe he can certainly steady the Sunderland ship and lead them up the table if they stay up this season.
Ha’way the Lads.
