Guess the Score as Sunderland Take on Bury in the League Cup

Guess the Score as Sunderland take on Bury in the League Cup

Jake kicks off a new season of Guess the Score

Pete Sixsmith has added another superb installment to his self-inflicted First Time Ever I Saw Your Team series.

Whoever who support, it’s a great read, taking in Sixer’s experiences of seeing SAFC play Bury.

Monsieur Salut thought he had missed a rather important shared experience of the more distant past – that awful Boxing Day in 1962 when Brian Clough collided with the blameless Bury keeper Chris Harker. But Sixer wasn’t there that day to share the agony of the Fulwell end (compounded by Charlie Hurley’s missed penalty and a 1-0 defeat).

Torn medial and cruciate ligaments were a lot harder to repair back then and although Cloughie came back, it was not for another season and a half and the injury effectively ended his playing career. Was it a blessing in disguise given how distinguished a manager he became?

On Thursday we play Bury again. Guess the Score and if I am in a good enough mood, the winner gets a mug – regardless of the team he or she supports.

As for our partisan interest, it would be nice to embark on a decent cup run. We can guess Simon Grayson will try out various people on Thursday and just hope they come good.

But whether you support SAFC or Bury or some team in the Mid-Somerset Football League, tell us what the score will be at the end of normal plus any added/extra time.

Ha’way the Lads.
