Has anyone looked at the Southend United Page on the BBC website lately? If not, here it is:

BBC Southend United

What do you notice? Not a lot I grant you, but there is a section entitled "Features and Anlaysis". In that section there are two articles. The first one is entitled "Scrum caps, jinxes and a £120m windfall" and talks about our upcoming play off final match with Wycombe, and how Timlin wore a rugby scull cap in the 2nd leg against Stevenage. The second article is entitled "The keeper with shades of Schmeichel", and is about Dan Bentley.

So, one article is about a match that happened in May 2015, i.e. 18 months ago, and the 2nd is about a player who doesn't even play for us any more. The article itself was written before the play off semi final 2nd leg. If they haven't got anything more up to date then maybe they should just do what they've done with other clubs, and just delete the entire section.

What a load of rubbish.

There was a link to an article about Martin Ling for about 3 years on there.

They update the match results and so on, but the articles are just left there for ages.

To be fair there's a lot of people on here who fail to recognise that we won that game , so for some , it's right up to date !
