I think we'll beat these well and allow us all to put the last week of the transfer window behind us.

Koeman will not let this team go out anything but 100% ready. Lukaku scoring for Belgium is great news, I back him to get at least his first goal of the season on Monday night.

I'm missing this as its our first wedding anniversary, which if the Chelsea game last season which was on whilst we were getting married is anything to go by might be a good omen?
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

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?

With that game last season, it was very much a case of both sides playing for different things.

Sunderland were playing to stay up, they had to push on. We had nothing to play for, but had to ensure we played badly enough to ensure a Sunderland victory meaning the Geordies went down.

Sunderland are going to be grim. Because they are grim.

Koeman will have had a fortnight to plan for this game. He's pretty meticulous and changes his tactics to suit the opposition so I reckon we'll win it reasonably comfortably, providing we can break them down early on. Just can't see what they have going forward unsettling us now we look a lot stronger down the spine of the team.

If Victor Anichebe scores I'm calling it a day and taking up stamp collecting.

Not based remotely on ability or quality but I'm a bit pessimistic about this match. Having made a good start completely under the radar, it's our first game on TV this season, with no other games on that night, so everyone will be watching.

Moyes. Pienaar. Anichebe. Lamine Kone.

Just got one of those underwhelming Everton nights written all over it for me.

I had a dream last night that we won this game. I can't remember any more detail than that I'm afraid.

This was actually the first draft of Martin Luther King's speech.

It got better.
