Well we all know Fletch won’t score three unless the Mags put out Gibraltar’s un-Rocklike defence.
But could he or Jermain Defoe or Connor Wickham or, indeed, Danny Graham or Duncan Watmore get the goal that wins the latest edition of the Wear-Tyne derby?
No Sunderland supporter truly cares where a winner might come from. Newcastle fans will think more or less likewise.
It is a rollover-plus for Sunday’s game. No one predicted a 1-0 defeat at West Ham, for which the prize would have been two outstanding mugs from our sponsors, Personalised Football Gifts. But we have twisted their arms again to make this week’s prize a bit different. It is a framed print of the dressing room image with, if I am right, your name or the name of your choice as No 12.
So whichever team you support, let’s be having your scoreline predictions. As you can see below, a Mag who gets it right – usual rules, must be the first with the correct score and it must be posted before kickoff – will receive a black and white version of the much more appealing Sunderland one.
There’ll be the usual build-up on the site as the week progresses. We all know what may rest of the outcome of Sunday’s game. Just get off to a winning home debut, Dick!
Ha’way the Lads, not Ho’way.
