What will you do? Be honest and write us off? Or keep the faith and go for a win?
What a choice to have to make.
But one day we will win at the SOL. I know it’s coming and I’ll even go for my usual 2-0 forecast. However, as I’m writing this I have to rule myself ineligible for the prize (but perhaps eligible for the non-prize) so that score remains available for you – if you’re quick enough. You don’t even have to be a Sunderland supporter to choose it. Forest fans are welcome to predict a win for us, or even for themselves.
That doesn’t mean you’ll win a prize if you choose it and are correct.
That depends on Colin and he’s not here to give the OK. But if he does decide an award is in order he’ll let us know, and the usual rules will apply:
- First one to post the correct score wins. Posts must be in the comments below. Posts on our facebook page are not eligible.
- You must have a UK address to which the mug (or the non-mug) can be (or won’t be) posted
- A winning Forest fan will have the mug (or won’t have the non-mug) suitably altered to reflect their chosen calling. Posts are held for moderation but they are time stamped so we will know who got in first in the event of two or more getting it right.
- Deadline is the kick-off. Once the ref blows that whistle it’s too late.
And won’t you regret it if you predicted the score correctly but didn’t post it here!
