John McCormick writes: So you think it’s bad, do you? In this post Wrinkly Pete opens with a reminder of a time when the mortgage interest rate was just about dropping into single figures after peaking at 15%+, Sunderland were struggling in the bottom half of the second division and averaging gates of under 20,000, and down […]

Wrinkly Pete’s Crystal Ball: it may be causing hallucinations

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Peter Lynn, also known as Wrinkly Pete, has an an imaginary crystal ball that enables him to predict the outcome of each game and check how it affects his once-firm belief that Sunderland would survive on 37 points. That tally is now pretty much impossible but Pete still sees us finishing on 35. Probably not […]

The headline, as William Boot would have said in Evelyn Waugh’s Scoop, is correct up to a point. Peter Lynn, better known around here as Wrinkly Pete, has spent much of the season in front an imaginary crystal ball, predicting the outcome of each game and checking how it affects his once-firm belief that Sunderland […]

Wrinkly Pete’s Crystal Ball SAFC slip further behind prior to Leicester game

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: much earlier in the season, when hope was young and alive (for some), Peter Lynn, alias Wrinkly Pete, decided to look ahead to all remaining games and calculate how – it was ‘how’ not ‘if’ then – Sunderland would reach his estimate of 37 points and safety. You must read on the […]

Wrinkly Pete’s Crystal Ball: can SAFC’s safety bid really get back on course?

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: with another long wait for our next game, and David Moyes’s next doom-laden post-match reaction, it is once again time for Peter Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete, to update his series based on the points tally he rather optimistically predicted for Sunderland. The original preamble is beginning to look a little dated so […]

Wrinkly Pete: Nice legs, shame about the football.

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Pete Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete, is no stranger to this website. Nor is he a stranger to the Stadium of Light, despite having to make a considerable effort to get there. But make the effort he does, and sometimes the journey, if not the result, makes him wax lyrical. Here he is explaining in […]

Wrinkly Pete’s Crystal Ball. ‘If my memory serves me well’

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Wrinkly Pete often illuminates his posts with reference to old songs which, given most of our readers can remember us winning a trophy, still resonate. He missed one, though, but I spotted it and stuck it in the title. Read on and you’ll find it somewhere in his prose. So this week’s quiz […]

John McCormick writes: Colin has made it known that he felt a sinking feeling on Saturday.  And as such a feeling requires an SOS it’s appropriate that Wrinkly Pete’s update dropped into the Salut mailbox yesterday. So here’s Pete, with a message that all is not yet lost (more…)

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

John McCormick writes: One good forward turns up against us and we collapse? We have Lukaku up next. I’m still going, I’ve told Pete Sixsmith we’ll win 2-0. Sixer’s not the only Pete. There’s also Peter Lynn, aka Wrinkly Pete. When he began calculating how the rest of the season would go, he concluded that 37 […]

Wrinkly Pete’s SOS: the post-palace pennyworth

Wrinkly Pete(featured image)

When Peter Lynn, young-at-heart  but prematurely aged physically by watching Sunderland, began his exercise in calculating how the rest of the season would go, he concluded that 37 points would be enough for survival – and that we’d get them. After enduring the atrocious displays at home to Stoke and then at West Brom, even forgetting […]
