Today is the first day of my fall and winter ritual. Waking up at 6:30AM, grabbing a beverage, and watching the premier league. Thankfully summer is still on in Seattle, so it won't be dark and rainy. I'll be at home watching on my couch via NBC Streaming and should be around to chat in the comments.
I expect Sunderland to come out fast an furious. If Fulham can with stand the early pressure, it might just rattle them enough to make a mistake. We weren't nearly as limp and lifeless away form the Cottage last year, and I hope that continues into this season. I'm not expecting a win, but would hope to see a least a good performance.
Lets hope for a good start to the campaign. COYW.
