Is this the most significant Guess the Score in the history of Salut! Sunderland running the competition? Yes, I hear some reply, but only since the last “most significant” one or until the next.
Think about it, though. As a result of our failure to pick up points when they have been there for the asking, we are now looking at a table that may well require us to take seven points from the remaining three games. I fully expect Aston Villa and Spurs to offer the flimsiest of resistance to Newcastle and that’s not even taking account of what Norwich might do with, like us, three games left.
The players have talked up our survival prospects. Now they have no option but to to puts words into deed.
So much could rest on Saturday’s game against Chelsea that it barely bears thinking about. Guess the Score all the same.
And remember we have managed some great displays against them in the past (along with some stinkers and some games when we were simply outclassed). We need heroics.
Usual (recent) rules apply. A mug goes to the first reader to post a correct scoreline prediction but ONLY if it forecasts a Sunderland win. Chelsea fans are rich enough to buy their own, though even one of them would win the prize (suitably adapted from the SAFC design) provided the winning entry also meant a home win. Monsieur Salut’s decision shall be final – and the winner must have a UK delivery address.
