FGR 1-0 Vale reaction: Aspin apologises as fans lament poor Vale showing

Fans agree that this was one of the team’s poorest performances under Neil Aspin as the Vale boss issues a public apology…

Match summary

Port Vale made it two defeats on the road in succession after a poor away loss to Forest Green Rovers.

Players and management

“There are no excuses, we were very poor, we didn’t create anything. After all the good work that we did against Coventry and Luton, and most of the game against Notts County, we have gone back to square one today…”

Vale manager Neil Aspin

“The pleasing thing for me was that we kept one of the most potent and dangerous strikers in the league really quiet and I don’t think he had an opportunity or a shot on goal all game and I thought that was testament to our defenders today…”

FGR manager Mark Cooper

Views from the OVF forum

“That was a dreadful game played between two abject teams the complete opposite of the Luton performance. A great following that’s stood out in freezing conditions deserved much better than that, it was really poor…”

Worcs Whites

“We missed Anderson today. Both sides were physical and Joe Davis couldn’t cope at all, he looks like more of a right back than a centre-back…”


“This result was what I feared. That’s football I suppose. It should give them all a kick up the a**e that they need to ensure we get enough points to survive…”

“A bad result but let’s keep some perspective, I said before the game I saw this as a relegation match and so it’s proved, we are not safe yet”

Source of the Trent

“Our first bad result/performance in ages. Aspo and the team have enough credit in the bank after recent weeks so I won’t be slating them after today…”


“This could be the kick in the rear the Vale players needed after the amazing Christmas period performances…”


“Okay we were pretty poor second-half… but so were they. The quality – or lack of – of our crossing has to be seen to be believed. Oh well… there’s always next week…”
