Sunderland's Stadium of Light
Boasting a capacity of 49,000, the Stadium of Light can actually boast being the 5th-largest stadium within the Premier League! Planned back in 1990, the stadium finally saw fruition in 1997, costing a total of £29 million to build, where upon its opening could the stadium won the award for "Best Away Ground"! As far as the stadium's name, Stadium of Light, its actually a reference to mining lamps, as the grounds it was built on originally hosted Wearmouth Colliery and many of Sunderland's residence have worked in the neighbouring mines. Since the stadium's construction, there have been a number of improvements and extensions added and planned, with the most recent proposal standing as a new fanzone with the capacity of 6,000!
Manager Sam Allardyce's plans
While there's a lot of speculation regarding who'll take former-England Manager Roy Hodgeson's position, Allardyce actually stands in the running as the only home-grown manager capable of managing England, as the truth of the matter is that Allardyce's ability to keep Sunderland in the Premier League, against all the odds is what has brought his attention to the FA as a possible England manager. That being said, life at Sunderland continues onwards, and Sam Allardyce still has his work cut-out keeping the Black Cats out of relegation for another year, especially with the increased quality of talent that the opposition possess! Suffice to say the team are already looking at some fresh talent that'll prove that Sunderland has what it takes to be a force to be reckoned with!
