Time For Sunderland To Take The Next Step

It was a great point for Sunderland against Liverpool.  Indeed, given without absurd refereeing decision we probably would have won.  This comes hot on the heels of a richly deserved draw against Arsenal last week (nothing is quite as relieving as a 95th minute equaliser).

Good to see Darren Bent remaining in devastating form after his ridiculous omission from the England squad for the World Cup that Fabio Capello will long live to regret.

The big point is, though, that we are getting points out of games from which we were expecting none.  What we need to be doing is getting three points from the games we are expecting to win.  Last season, we got some great results against some big names, only to come to a juddering halt against some of the lesser lights of the Premiership.  We cannot afford to do the same this year.

Sunderland have the talent, the management and the regular goalscoring flair to make the next step and hit the top 10 of the Premiership this year.  If we continue to play as we did yesterday, then that is where we will end up.
