Burslem Boy provides his unique take on Vale’s disappointing draw with Southend…

It has been an interesting week at the interface between football and science. On Tuesday Peter Crouch proved conclusively that footballers do have pork pies for brains. And today Vale Chairman Bill Bratt reinforced Hugh Everett III`s theory of parallel universes by demonstrating that he actually lives in one. The game was dire. Vale not only failed to get a result but – more worryingly – also failed to produce a performance, Griffith and Tomlinson excepted. Southend were as ordinary as us, but they dominated the second half, in which Vale failed to muster a single serious chance, much less a shot. This team is going nowhere. I truly fear where the club is going.
