Which sounds alright, though the top two - Wycombe and Ipswich - are looking in strong positions at the moment.

Southend have been the poorest side in the league so far this season. Bolton's point deduction is the only thing saving them from rock bottom, having conceded an astonishing 44 goals this season - 6 more than Sunderland have conceded and scored combined.

The began as you would expect, with the home side looking comfortable and that trend continued throughout the first half, and included Luke O'Nien's goal which would ultimately prove the decider. The second have was god awful from everyone. Thankfully, Southend are awful and couldn't capitalise on our awfulness, meaning one goal was enough for three points.

Have we seen enough today to suggest Phil Parkinson is bucking our season trend of never-going-to-be-promoted? Still too early to tell I guess, but for now here's another opportunity to rate the players. We have an article ready and waiting looking at player comments and ratings since Parky took charge, watch out for that over the coming days which will also feature your contributions to this article. Once you've selected a rating for one or more players, you'll have the chance to leave a comment which we'd really appreciate you doing.
