Same as 1996, go up with a squad which was never really equipped for promotion let alone staying in the Premier and our big signings were Tony Cotton and Niall Quinn who were both out injured all season.
We were reliant on the prolific Paul Stewart to bag us the goals to keep us up.
Christ I remember that season like it was yesterday too. paul Stewart would walk into our forward line atm (what a goalscorer )
Jesus....... why do we have to put up with so much shit and mediocrity being a Sunderland fan !
