Todays early editions -

The back page headline on the Echo

"SOUTHEND GET JUST DESERTS"

Is the standard of journalism so bad these days that they can't even spot spelling mistakes in headlines?

Deserts is the correct (original) spelling!

Couple of months ago after our late equaliser at Orient the Echo's main headline was "BLUES LEAVE IT LATE TO BEAT O'S!!"

:D
 
In last nights Echo - Ryman League Cup - It was about Billericay struggling to put out a team against Tilbury. Best (or worst) part was "struggling to put out a team for TOMORROW nights semi final at division one north Tilbury TONIGHT"
Dont they have proof readers anymore? Or is that a thing of the past.
 
I doubt if that's true. Surely no one is daft enough to end a sentence with two exclaimation marks, one is enough, a second adds nothing.
Completely agree with you, who would be stupid enough to put two exclamation marks at the end of a sentence!!

;)

Actually, the overuse of exclamation marks really winds me up. Someone I know always ends their sentences with, would you believe it, three!!!
