It's Tuesday 1st September 23:10 hours. The BBC Sport website for scores and fixtures has the results of today's games EFL Trophy and Finland league. There is a raft of F A Cup Qualifying games that kicked off between 19:30 and 20:00.  Not a single result is shown.

To me this is shocking coverage and reporting by the BBC. It IS the F A Cup after all. I despair of the modern generation who don't seem to give a toss about getting information out to those who want it. Don't give a toss about "doing things correctly and meticulously".

Another (justified) rant from an old timer.

Plenty of good games about as well. Darwen vs Barnoldswick for one!

Always been that way on BBC Sport, anything below the Conference in whatever capacity comes through in dribs and drabs, suspect it's more to do with their feeds for the data than lack of effort. It's the same for the likes of the Highland League in Scotland.

My main problem with the BBC's coverage is that they'll spend from now to Christmas gibbering on about the 'magic of the Cup', then as soon as the big names come along the cast aside the Chorleys, Stanleys and whoever else of this world so we can watch Man City drub Charlton 8-0...

It's a shame really, when the Beeb want to they can pull off 'obscure' football journalism and representation with the best (one of the reasons I genuinely admire their attempts at promoting the Women's game). Sadly, there's more mileage in 'who would make your combined Fulham v. Leicester XI?'...

Off to a cup game tonight my first live game of football since March, can't wait. To be fair to the BBC they always show a cup game in the early rounds on the red button. I didn't watch it but last night they had Maine Road against someone.

BBC funding is getting cut left right and centre. It's no surprise unfortunately, they just haven't got the resources.

Have you checked the local radio service they offer? Most are very good at covering across the whole of their patch.

I take back my criticism of BBC. I see there were 153 FA Cup ties last night and all the results are there today. Can't expect them to find out early all the results.

Yes. The BBC Sport website is very poor - content and navigation wise.
