Last week, the prize offered in Guess the Score was a generous, unaffordable £50 but the bar was set high: to win, you needed correct scorelines from two internationals plus the Swansea match.
No one got close enough to trouble me, but then not many bothered to enter at all. The rest must have known what was coming at the Liberty.
There are no rollover jackpots around here but I will offer the more customary Salut! Sunderland mug for Sunderland vs Newcastle United before we move into an era of just-for-fun Guess the Sore features.
Newcastle fans are naturally welcome to enter. A Mag winner would receive a mug with a suitably amended design. Don’t worry if your entry does not appear immediately. Moderation may hold it up but we’ll know in what order scorelines were predicted. Geordiedoonsooth, first of our “Who are You? interviewees, suggested 2-2 but will have to post a comment to that effect here for it to be considered an entry.
Usual rules: first to guess the score correctly before kickoff on Sunday wins the prize.
Ha’way, choosing our first vowel wisely, the Lads.
