How did they do?
Sunk like a stone, taking our Premiership points record with them. Cheers guys.
How will they do?
There are still some quality players in the squad, but how many of them remain at the end of August is another question. In any event, two seasons of being pretty dreadful takes a lot of turning around. The home support will add momentum to whichever direction Sunderland head in. Mid-table at best.

Oh dear. It didn't look like that on the colour chart, did it?
