Let’s go early, I thought. The international breaks are important of course, and it was naturally Sunderland AFC that turned Danny Welbeck into such an impressive striker.
But even though I have to return to France until October, I am excited as anyone planning to be at the SoL on Saturday about the resumption of proper football.
And I also have a great little partnership to announce.
Personalised Football Gifts has a head office with Wear in the address – it’s at the Weardale Business Cente in Stanhope – and, better still, is owned by a Sunderland supporter. Check out their SAFC-related merchandise at http://www.personalisedfootballgifts.co.uk/sunderland/sunderland-gifts.
And even better than all that, they have agreed to sponsor Guess the Score. So the competition no longer depends for a prize on Monsieur Salut’s unwise largesse. A mug, whether or not you regard that as life-changing, will be on offer to each and every winner.
More details will follow.
For now, have a stab at Saturday’s scoreline. Spurs fans may join in the fun and a winner from their ranks would receive a mug with suitably modified design.
Important game and there’s a top-rate Who are You? interview with a Spurs-supporting reformed Sun journo to come.
Now tell us Saturday’s score. Usual rules apply – entries must be posted before kickoff – and M Salut’s decision will be final.
