Well what can I say. We're top of the league as I write this at 18:30 on Saturday! Amazing! So the first game of the season away at Sunderland was an affair I was looking forward to! But finishing the day at top is out of this world! Thanks to BBC Commentary, I was able to listen to Darren Bent score in about 10 minutes to make us 1-0 up! Unfortunately, after a very strong start and many attempts on goal, we threw our lead away and went in all even at half time.
The second half wasnt too good to start. Darren Ambrose sent off on his debut for a 2 footed challenge. Well I was not confident on us winning now, but about 5 minutes later, we had a free kick on the edge of the box and Murphy steps up "WHACK" into the back of the net! AMAZING! 2-1.
So that looked like we would win, but no, we weren't finished there. Bent steps up in the 90th minute and decides to make it 3-1 to us! Brilliant! Top of the league by alphibetical order (with West Ham 2nd) this is an amazing start!
Great lads, keep it up!Man of the Match:Darren Bent
