OK, as Jake’s brilliant graphic confirms, the waiting is nearly over. You can see all our build-up displayed on the home page by clicking here, and soon it will be time for the players to battle it out for North-eastern honours. Guess the score and you may win a prize.
The usual rules will apply. All entries received up to noon tomorrow, Sunday March 4, will be valid, even if delay for moderation means the prediction does not immediately appear.

Neither of which might appeal greatly to a winner from the Tyne side of the divide.
So I will substitute three CDs for anyone not wanting a book.
There is good news and bad concerning this alternative: these CDs will be unused (unlike the books which are in good but not new condition) and still in their wrapping, but they will be folk/roots albums taken at random from a collection that is massive but not necessarily to everyone’s taste.
Tough! You could, of course, enter merely for fun …
And Ha’way the Lads.
