Vale 4-0 Luton reaction: Wow! Absolutely awesome Vale…

Port Vale fans hail a terrific result as the Valiants put the league leaders to the sword…

Match summary

Vale thrashed league leaders Luton with a rampant display at Vale Park. Tom Pope scored twice and the hugely impressive Ben Whitfield another while a Luton own-goal wrapped up a convincing Vale win.

Players and management

“When your team plays like that, and shows as much desire, then obviously as a manager you can’t ask for any more. So, it was a fantastic performance and the players deserve a hell of a lot of credit because they have beaten the best team in the division and they have beaten them well…”

Vale manager Neil Aspin

“They were better than us all over the park. They got second balls, they outworked us, we didn’t handle Pope all afternoon and we got what we deserved…”

Luton manager Nathan Jones

Views from the OVF forum

“Just wow! Absolutely awesome Vale, and what a turn around in just 3 months. Luton have been ploughing this league up and we literally just took them apart. Effort, commitment, skill that was superb!”


“For me, that performance was up there with Burton (7-1) and both games vs Rotherham when we went up…”


“The team, the fans and the management were simply a different class today…”

Alfie Blade

“Everyone was excellent today. We were head and shoulders better than them…”


“Most of our players are unrecognisable ( in a good way) from 2 months ago…”


“Thanks every one of the Vale squad and management for today confirming that WE are back. Happy times, fans smiling. The crowd totally behind the team. Outplayed the top team in the division by a country mile…”


“Fantastic stuff. Can’t fault anyone. Up the vale!”


“What a performance by the whole team. The second goal was sublime. Smurf has to get Whitfield signed up for the remainder of the season…”

Class Personified

“We have proved today we are a match for anyone…”


“Truly wonderful, the football, the result, this forum and the new found positivity with Port Vale, Neil Aspin and our beloved John Rudge. Good times are back…”
