The VIPStakes sports representative that blogged from Brazil during the World Cup is back with a series of Sports Blogs in which he will write about the upcoming Premier League. Here's a short introduction about this season's teams, some predictions and betting advice!
After a disastrous start of the season under Paolo Di Canio with the Black Cats only getting one point from the eight first matches the charismatic Italian saw himself getting replaced by Gus Poyet. With some great results in the cups as well as the league the former Chelsea midfielder got the team to stay up. Among the victories the two away wins against Chelsea and Man City are something Poyet can look back at with a smile. He made players such as Adam Johnson, Fabio Borini and Connor Wickham play on the top of their ability again.
After a big turnover of players in the last few windows this summer has been a little quieter at the Stadium of Light. From Man City the clubs has bought in Jack Rodwell and Costel Pantillimon, from WBA right back Billy Jones, from Chelsea Patrick van Aaanholt and Jordi Gomez from Wigan. The club are also only details away from finalizing a permanent deal for last years loan Fabio Borini.
Connor Wickham was bought from Ipswich for 8 million pounds as a 18 year-old but struggled to adapt to top flight football. After a couple of loans to the Championship the club decided to bring him back ahead of the final third of the season. Wickham was up for the challenge this time and played exceptionally well. Some people even suggested the promising striker from Hereford should’ve been included in England’s World Cup squad. If Wickham’s development continues this season he can be sure to hear from Roy Hodgson soon.
Sunderland finished last year very strong but really struggled to win the easy games against the bottom half of the table. Can they raise their game in that sort of matches and let Gus Poyet continue with his strategy it could be a very merry season for Sunderland.
