The View Outside The Premier League: Wolves pile misery on Posh, Tranmere score for fun
The match was a delight for Wolves fans though and the Molineux club have now slipped quietly into one of the play-off slots. Though it's early days the Wolves seem to have a decent chance of regaining their Premier League status.
Pre-season preparations were undermined by the protracted Steven Fletcher transfer saga but the board were vindicated by holding out for their price after Fletcher's blistering start for Sunderland. More money came in for Michael Kightly and Matt Jarvis but most Wolves fans would have liked to keep all three players.
But it means there is money to strengthen in January and the club aren't as badly off for forward power as it may have seemed. Both Kevin Doyle and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake are men with something to prove and each of them has a good record at Championship level. On the evidence so far this pair should be able to keep Wolves in the hunt until the transfer window opens again.
As for Peterborough, their season already looks doomed. Darren Ferguson won't walk away from the task but a fresh voice might be needed in the dressing room. Clubs like Peterborough will always struggle to maintain a place in the second tier though, given the sort of spending most of their rivals can call on.
The managerial merry-go-round is already spinning in League Two. AFC Wimbledon dispensed with Terry Brown, the man who had led them so stirringly back to the Football League and on Saturday they visited fellow strugglers Wycombe Wanderers.
As is so often the case, the Dons put in an improved shift for a caretaker boss and their single goal victory signalled the end for Chairboys boss Gary Waddock. While both clubs understand their position in the pecking order, it's fair to say that neither would be happy with finishes in the lower reaches of League Two, hence the drastic actions.
Tranmere Rovers show no sign of slowing down at the head of League One. Ronnie Moore's squad blasted past Crawley after being 2-1 down after 16 minutes.
Rovers eventually scored five but Moore is keen to sound a note of caution about the depth of his squad. Although his side are unbeaten after eight League games, their rivals at the top have more resources.
At the moment though, Tranmere fans just need to enjoy the ride. With a goal difference of plus 17 they are the side to watch. Jake Cassidy and Andy Robinson are joint league leading scorers with seven each and Jean-Paul Akpa-Akpro has weighed in with five.
For Crawley this first season in League one is proving to be a bit of a rollercoaster. This was a second defeat in four home games but only one loss on the road keeps them comfortably mid-table.
On Friday Middlesbrough ended Blackburn's excellent start to the season by winning at Ewood Park. This was Boro's first away win after three defeats - a total contrast to last season when their away form proved to be excellent but home form cost them a play-off shot.
Blackburn's suffered a first loss which left them two points short of what is alleged to be the target set for Steve Kean after seven games. It would seem odd in the extreme to sack a manager when the club lies second but nothing is normal at Blackburn.
A manager of a team in second spot would usually be able to count on a groundswell of support from the fans but that won't be the case with Steve Kean. So would Venky's sack him? Given some of their other erratic decisions since they took over Kean can hardly sleep easily until the next game.
