Quick look back at my premiership preview;

Sunderland: I couldn't wait any longer. I have watched and rooted for Sunderland for twenty seven years now and this 2007 season promises to be the most exciting of the lot. Manager Roy Keane has bought several interesting, relatively low priced and talented players like Paul McShane, Craig Gordon, Michael Chopra and Kieran Richardson. Keane has a will of iron and his young side will play every match as if it is their last. They should be particularly hard to beat in Sunderland in front of some of the most loyal fans in football.

Nevertheless, if they finish high, as I honestly believe they can, they will be the 2006 George Mason Patriots, who famously made it to the 2006 NCAA Final Four. GMU beat perennial powers UNC, Connecticut, and Michigan State, as well as a highly ranked Wichita State team, before losing to eventual National Champion Florida. Sunderland can beat Liverpool, Everton, Blackburn and maybe even a big shot or two at home to finish in the top half of the table.

And fast forward to the last minute of Saturday's Sunderland v Tottenham Premiership encounter..

Some start for the new boys, exciting game, great finish. Now for the next ten months of Premiership football! Howay the lads.
