Cup final week, even if technically not, so let’s go early with Guess the Score – and let’s also have a bumper entry …
A Caribbean cruise? No. Tickets for the World Cup Final in Brazil? Not quite.
That’s the bad news. The good is that the League Cup final Guess the Score is not just any old win-a-mug competition, and nor is it one of those prize-free duds.
Our friends at Campo Retro have agreed to stump up for another of their retro Sunderland tops, this one designed specifically to commemorate Sunday’s great day in the history of our club.
And since City supporters may well also see this item, I can reassure them that entering a winning prediction would not leave them wondering what to do with a Sunderland top. Such a winner would receive a City equivalent (they’ll be gagging for it, this being their cup final now the famous quadruple is looking unlikely) …
Usual rules apply. The first reader to post the correct scoreline – by which I mean the score at the end of the normal 90 minutes plus any extra time but NOT a penalty shootout – is the winner. All entries must be received before kickoff at Wembley to be eligible and Monsieur Salut’s decision shall be final.
And if you really cannot wait, or would quite like to have more than the one top you may win, here’s some news from Campo Retro:
We have a FREE DELIVERY promotion running at the moment until midnight Wednesday, simply use code SAFCFD at the checkout to get your classic retro kit in time for Wembley from www.camporetro.com
Ha’way the Lads …
Finally, here’s an extract from our cup final “Who are You?” which should appear in full tomorrow or Thursday:
Salut! Sunderland: That’s it for the quadruple then? All but out of the CL, underdogs in the league cup, Premier title in doubt. Would the FA cup suffice?
Simon Curtis, Man City supporter and ESPN columnist:
Haha, that Wembley Here I Come confidence! The cheek of it. I’ll grant you the Champions League looks a goner, although I and 4,500 others will be there to make sure nothing stupid happens at the Nou Camp. As for the rest, I don’t see why City cannot compete in all three. One game and a 50:50 chance of winning the League Cup; a home draw v Wigan in the FA Cup to take us to a Wembley semi final and very handily placed in the league. Would the FA Cup suffice? Naturally. It’s not so long ago that putting this question to a City fan would have had you carted off to the nearest shrink, so of course it would.
