Peter Lynn is a regular home and away. Even home means a slog from afar. Today he was absent; he delays his football season for cricket to finish. But that doesn’t stop him acclaiming our first opening-day win since 2009. And his way of doing so? Same old music …
Readers of my Wrinkly jottings will know that I am such a traditionalist that I am still in cricket mode – yesterday for example, I was at Edgbaston watching the penultimate day’s play of the enthralling first test between England and India.
This explains my absence from today’s win against Charlton. Nevertheless, I followed the game as best I could, with a combination of texts and internet (yes even wrinklies can manage that) as the game unfolded in “typical Sunderland” fashion.
After the game, in a moment of quiet reflection, for some unknown reason Paul McCartney’s voice came into my head.
And when the broken-hearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be
In this case the broken-hearted fans of SAFC, who, despite everything that they have endured recently, turned up today – 30,000 of them – to support THEIR team. Who knows? Would the last minute winner have happened without them? Was there a massive Let It Be force from our fans, willing the ball into their net?
Whatever, here are my Let It Be wishes for the rest of the season.
* Let it be. That our fans always praise our players for effort regardless of results because there will be “times of trouble”,
* Let it be. That a minority of fans drop their arrogance and accept that where we presently are is where we deserve to be. I believe “there is still a chance that they will see”.
* Let it be. That Wise Men Say soars through the Stadium of Light as we exit, “speaking words of wisdom”.
Keep the Faith.
* and don’t forget to cast votes for the names you’d like SAFC.com to give the Stadium of Light stands

Great news, thank you.
And you would have enjoyed the positivity of the support and the majority staying until the end, rewarded by being there to see the winner. Ha’way man!
