Premier League 2012/13 - Sunderland

Premier League 2012/13 - Sunderland
Club: Sunderland

Founded: 1879

Nickname: The Black Cats

Ground: The Stadium of Light (Capacity: 49,000)

When we face off: Sat 25th August (A), Sat 2nd February (H)

Last season finish: 13th - Premier League

Manager: Martin O'Neill - The Northern Irishman had a fantastic start as Sunderland manager when he linked up with them in December, winning four of his first six games. Despite a slow end to the season, O'Neill did a superb job to steer Sunderland away from relegation trouble.

Key player: Stéphane Sessègnon - The Benin international has been a big hit with the Black Cats since his move from PSG last year. Some superb performances in the playmaker role made him Sunderland's player of the season for the 2011/12 campaign.

Season Preview: Sunderland have not been as involved in the transfer market as they have been over the years, only adding experienced defender Carlos Cuellar on a free. I highly doubt the Black Cats will be involved in any relegation trouble this season, but I cannot see any massive strides being made in terms of pushing for European places.
