2004/2005 saw Sunderland stride back into the Premier League as Champions of the Coca Cola Championship. Under Mick McCarthy, the Black Cats finished seven points clear of runners up Wigan after timing their run to the top impeccably, going to the top of the League just before Easter and staying there.
This official Sunderland AFC DVD of the Championship winning season includes:

Major moments of the 200304 season when Sunderland were FA Cup semi finalists, third in the League and Play Off semi finalists.
A host of new signings took a month to settle in but from the start of September onwards, Sunderland never went more than three games without a victory. New players such as Stephen Elliott, Dean Whitehead and Liam Lawrence became heroes, blending with experienced internationals such as Gary Breen and Carl Robinson. With George McCartney and Julio Arca ripping defences apart with their brilliant left wing partnership it proved to be a glorious season for every Sunderland supporter and you can re-live it on Sunderland's first ever End of Season DVD.
