Sunderland v Newcastle: a big enough game, so guess the score returns

Jake cannot believe prizes are back

Another in the occasional series, and it is open to supporters of both sides – and of neither – to enter.

Guess the correct score in Sunday’s Wear-Tyne derby – posting your prediction before kickoff time – and if you are the first to get it right, Salut! Sunderland will send you a Martin O’Neill mug, the design suitably amended if a Newcastle supporter wins.

Guess the score at Swansea and win a life-changing prize

Jake downplays the prize value ... ...

No winner on Tuesday night so here we go again with Guess the Score. Be the first to post the correct scoreline here – NB before kickoff – and win a Martin O’Neill mug.

OK, the headline has been reported to Lord Justice Leveson as wholly misleading. The prize will change the winner’s life only to the extent that he or she will have a new mug to swill tea or coffee from.

Sunderland v Morecambe: making up for Brighton and guessing the score

Jake's welcome to the Shrimps

With a spot of luck, Sunderland fans will put aside any lingering embarrassment over Saturday’s postponement and see class prevail over Morecambe tonight to get a run started in the Capital One Cup.

This is, of course, the league cup, the same one from which we departed without a whimper – indeed without a true striker in the starting line-up – at Brighton and Hove Albion last season.

SAFC v Manchester United: last chance for a Guess the Score mug

Jake offers one more chance ... ...

Well, United need 9-0 or better; assuming QPR hold Citeh to 1-0. Other permutations – all to do with United getting more points than Citeh – would also keep the Premier League title at Old Trafford.

Aston Villa v SAFC: will Villans or Mackems tell us the score?

Jakes would be chuffed if the Lads redeemed themselves

Right. I have decided, despite the view expressed here after the damp squib of SAFC v Wolves, that our unimpressive form in the past two games can have nothing to do with Salut! Sunderland running a ‘Guess the Score’ competition. So here’s another …

Can Sunderland devour the Wolves? Your answer may count

Jake challenges you ...

We camer a cropper in this fixture last season. We had three points in our grasp at Molineux in December only to come away with none. What, then, does tomorrow hold in store when Sunderland seek to make amends for letting down Martin OI’Neill, themselves and the supporters at Everton? The decision is yours, at least until the game itself is over and done with, and so may be a Salut! Sunderland prize.

Jake wants a win ...

The usual guess-the-score rules apply. Entries are valid up to kickoff time, the first reader to post what turns out to be the correct score is the winner and Monsieur Salut’s verdict is, as ever, final.

The prize is a Martin O’Neill ”Team of all Talents” mug whuch, as I felt obliged to poiçnt out after Goodison, is a slogan that has the sensible qualification ”work in progress”. It looks a little like this …

If a Wolves supporter happens to post the correct answer, I will modify the design accordingly.

Good luck… and if you do not win, you can always improve the chances of Jake’s neborn Xuana being kept in nappies by buying a mug or two. See below.
