With the window slammed shut, I guess it's as good a time as any to take a look at our squad after another eventful summer. Everyone will have different views of course, but for me this is probably our strongest XI, followed by our current strongest back up team: Gordon Onouha Mensah Bramble Richardson El Mohamady Henderson Cattermole Malbranque Gyan Bent Mignolet Bardsley Turner Da Silva Ferdinand Zenden Riveros Meyler Reid Campbell Wellbeck The reserve team would probably give many of our first teams in times gone by a good game. In fact, I've got to say looking at that back up that we are in a brilliant position and we should be absolutely delighted with the way things are going, even in this difficult economic climate. The first team is only bettered by the top 8, IMO. In conclusion, the best squad I've ever seen at Sunderland AFC.
