Good news for Pam Stokoe, whose name has special resonance around these parts. Her mug, won with a correct if disloyal 0-1 forecast for the SAFC v Arsenal game, has finally been ordered.
Good news for Eric, who posts regularly to the Comments section and invariably offers a prediction. I will take his 3-0, which appears at the end of the Fulham “Who are You?” – about which he was less than enthusiastic – as a valid entry. I also hope it comes true.
Bad news for Monsieur Salut. The mug suppliers have withdrawn the free postage that applied to all UK orders. With the so-called Salut! Sunderland shop in dire need of an overhaul, there is about the same chance of anyone spending £30 there, which would qualify for free postage under the new rules imposed on us, as there is of Sunderland finishing second, which remains mathematically possible.
I will grin and bear it for this week and then reflect on what to do next.
So for now, just have a go. If your prediction is correct, I will send you a mug, too. If you’re a Fulham supporter and get it right, the design will be modified to take account of your allegiance.
Ha’way the Lads.
