With apologies to the late Lesley Gore and the writers of her pop classic – it took no fewer than four of them: Walter Gold John Gluck Jr, Herb Weiner Seymour Gottlieb, and their song of teenage betrayal was elevated to new heights in the 1981 version of the non-Eurythmics, non-Sunderland Dave Stewart and Barbar Gaskin – Sunday afternoon is party time. Chelsea fans will be en fete, ours will make the most of their day, too, before taking their leave of the Premier League.
To adapt the song’s best couplet: Everybody knows where my Sunderland have gone/ But Judy (David Moyes?) left the same time
And here’s is a special prize edition of Guess the Score …
Four more days and this ghastly season will be over. As will be our 10-year stay in the Premier League, one with a solitary top half finish – 10th under, whisper it, Steve Bruce – and lots of brushes with relegation.
We will end the 2016-2017 series of Guess the Score with a non-mug prize edition.
Depending on who you support, winning – by being first to predict the correct score below – means your choice of a Art of Football print reflecting the club of your allegiance. I give two examples above: check out the website for more options. The site says prices “from £9.99” and you can bet your bottom £9.99 that is the price Monsieur Salut will stump up.
You must have a UK postal delivery address, unless I discover postage is free.
There you have it. Nothing seemed to ride on the game but something does now. Ha’way the Lads and come back to Salut! Sunderland in the next few days for not one but two Chelsea “Who are You?s” thus wrapping up that series, too.
