I just can't get last season's game out of my mind - we have actually only played 4 league games since then. It's possible that only Baines, Barry, Lukaku, Mirallas and Barkley from the team who played then will start on Monday. That's a positive in my book.
On the plus side it finally signalled the end of Roberto's reign but we were so bad that night it was embarrassing. I didn't think I'd ever dare to show my face on the banks of the Wear again but hey ho.
Under the circumstances I would settle for a draw but I don't think Koeman will.
With Martinez it would have been hope for the best - let's see which team turns up.
With Koeman I'm just very nervous about it - that's good ain't it?
