Wrinkly Pete has given up on his 3-3 predictions and 4-3 didn’t quite happen. Some guessed a Bristol City romp but no one had us down for a 3-3 draw, so no Guess the Score winner last Saturday.
We now turn our attentions to Brentford at home. And wouldn’t it be nice to award a prize to someone predicting a Sunderland win?
When the season started, many of us would have looked at this fixture and thought to ourselves “home banker”, even after the bitter disappointment of a meek acceptance of relegation in bottom place.
Now we’re the underdogs, Brentford enjoying a comfortable season while we languish in the bottom three.
Many readers of Salut! Sunderland have experienced enough as SAFC supporters to place little reliance on one goodish result, great in the context of the half-time scoreline, to spark any sort of run or broader revival. We long for the dream world of back-to-back wins: wouldn’t three against the three Bs, Brentford, Bolton and Boro, be rather nice?
Have your say. Have a go. If you are first to post a correct prediction and do so before kickoff, you will win a prize – whoever you support.
It could be a mug, a book or something else but it will relate to the club you follow. In other words, Brentford fans are welcome to enter and one already has (our Who are You? interviewee, whose thoughts will appear here on Thursday, reckons 2-1 to the Bees and his prediction automatically stands as the first valid entry). Any winner, however, must have a UK delivery address.
Ha’way the Lads, our Lads.
