Chelsea ‘Guess the Score’: hatful for them, valiant win for Sunderland?

Jake: 'more of the same, Lads ...'
Jake: ‘more of the same, Lads …’

The heartbreaking nature of Man City’s undeserved equaliser should not detract from the pride we can take, finally and for the first time since we last played them, in a Sunderland performance.

Pete Sixsmith is probably right – too little, too late – but it is important for own morale, and for the future health of the club we love, that each player puts every ounce of passion he can muster into the five games that remain and just hope that other stumble as we prosper.

Guess the Score is still a prize zone. Be the first to predict the right score, necessarily before kickoff on Saturday evening, and you will win one of the mugs of which our valued reader CSB, out in some desert earning his crust, already has a shelfload (or will, once Monsieur Salut gets round to sending them out to him).

Here's one we made earlier (two sides of the same one)

Have a go. And Ha’way the Lads. I had contact with people as far afield as the UAE and the USA last night, all rooting for what would have been a fair result at the Etihad – 1-2 – and sharing our bitter disappointment that the lucky Citeh sods caught Vito in a weak moment.bitter

Salut! Sunderland: How did you persuade Peter Reid to buy Gareth Hall?
Ray Knight, Chelsea fan:

Peter Reid was under the impression that it was a property deal – he’d been told that Gareth Hall was in fact an old Mormon church behind Sloane Square that, with the right amount of investment could be turned into a highly profitable concert venue.

  1. I’m with you on this one Eric. It’s implausible to get points in consecutive away games and scoring more than a solitary game for two consecutive games. That’s why we we’ll get another 2-2.

  2. To survive in the PL we HAVE to pick up points here, so I’m throwing logic out of the window – 1-0 to SAFC.

  3. Picked us to lose for the first time against City and we played well and should have won, here I go again . Chelski 2-SAFC 0
