    Sad occasion for my first ever post . My first Norwich hero . As a little boy I was lucky enough to sometimes go in the players lounge after games with my Dad . Dad was popular with the players as he worked for the then Norwich Brewery Company/Watneys and many of them had an eye on taking a pub when they retired , although I don’t think Dunc did . He’d always come over with a drink for me and say hello and ask me what I thought of the game . And as he approached he’d always roar “Duck , low flying haggis !” . Got me every time ! Wonderful man , great memories . Cheers Duncan Forbes . Bless your heart. RIP .

    I feel compelled to offer my comment and opinion as I WAS THERE...... Attended as an away fan with three exiled Yorkshiremen.... As a four we made up 2% of the away fans. Home team were truly dire... no plan, no class. Completely monstered by a resolute Rotherham team. Outsung and out cheered the home support... emptying from the 75th minute. Far, far worse than our brief soujorn in the division. AND... £27 for an adult away fan... robbery on behalf of Mr Evans. Nothing to worry the sons and daughters of Norfolk.

    I wonder how many other clubs message boards have a thread for one of their departed legends containing so much personal content between said player and supporters? From receiving a 5’’ scar from Big Dunc, to kicking a ball with him on the streets before a game, and being regularly bought drinks by the man, to name but a few memories. Norwich City has clearly always been a family club, and you can see Duncan 100% epitomised and embodied that. It’s fantastic to read, and I feel I now have a much better understanding and appreciation of a past legend from before my time. Cheers folks

    To be fair the issue youre referring to isnt "women commentators" it's simply bad commentators. Of which there are men and women. However, I do understand and partially agree that there is reason to believe positive discrimination has led to female commentators getting to commentate on big matches before theyve really proven themselves elsewhere.

    Not all Brexiteers are racist, but all racists are Brexiteers. I hate getting involved in Brexit-related arguments (hence why I never even read the late abrexit thread) but regardless of which side you're on, you can't really argue with that.

    Bearing in mind that a football match was abandoned in this country on Saturday because of racism I would make that award that to the original post. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. But just in case you still think that Brexit wasn't won by racists, let me remind you of this

    That you would attempt to describe 17.4 million people of this country as being Neo-N azis demonstrates both your lack of intelligence and vileness of your character. That KickItOff would 'like' your post is of no surprise. But do carry on, because the more you try to paint normal people as something they are not, it just stiffens our resolve to see the that the democratic process is safeguarded against the likes of you.

    So we have BJ voted in as leader primarily on a promise to get us out of the EU in the 31 Oct. A single objective upon which he will spectacularly fail and his whole Cabinet now having to scramble to try and ameliorate his failure. We then have Steptoe who faced with one of the weakest governments in history has his own party squabbling about whether they want an election. Whatever next?

    That doesn't happen me as my wife like to ask daft questions during the game. It's just like being in the River End.

    IMO it’s great to have an ‘old fashioned’ minute’s silence on Sunday - it seems far more fitting than an applause before the game; we can of course then give a rousing applause on 78 minutes for the big man

    You are just denying the will of the British people Paul. You can't fool us - it's not that you don't want this deal, it because you don't want ANY deal - you're just a remainiac, using the terms of any deal as an excuse!

    Always think a minutes silence is more respectful, not sure why the applause thing caught on. Is it because some people can't keep their mouths shut and show respect for a single minute at a game?

    Totally agree, silence is better than applause. Although I expect there will be fans turn up at last minute having got food from the concourse.

    I dont actually deny that more wealthy owners would give us a better chance of staying in the prem for longer. Thing is, they would need to be as good as our owners have been with all the other stuff, as well as the on field stuff. Now, if we can guarantee that then great. But what are the odds? And that's what it comes down to. Taking their lack of wealth into account, theyve consistently delivered above and beyond that of many rich counterparts. As Nutty said before, anyone who thinks it's worth taking the risk just to say we've got owners with a bit more money is not only showing a huge lack of care to our club as it is but it's doing the current owners a massive disservice.

    I can't stand Alan Green-I always turn off the commentary if that miserable moaning git is on. That said, I wouldn't start a thread with the title "Northern Irish commentators on men's football" as I would expect that people would interpret it as an attack on Northern Irish commentators in general rather than one in particular. And did anyone hear John Motson's final commentary on the radio in May 2018? Embarrassingly bad.

    It is strange how clubs take on political statuses over years- Lazio have long been the club of Mussolini and facists, Real Madrid were the favoured club of General Franco (who apparently played a role in Di Steffano ending up there over Barcelona), St Pauli in Germany are the left wingers favourite club, Chelsea as the home of the National Front in England, the horrible sectarian nature of Scottish football etc etc...

    This has not been said. As TVB said the OP could have made his point better and the thread title is misleading. I don't think the commentary was the best last night when Lacazette missed a shot simply saying "And that's why he hasn't been getting in the team" was clearly pure guesswork and incorrect as in actual fact he has been out injured for nearly 2 months. It has nothing to do with gender though, I've never liked Michael Owen as as a commentator and Troy Deeney had a bit of a nightmare on Soccer Saturday a few weeks back but then again like the Carney last night these people don't have the years and years of experience that the others do. Least favourite has to be Jonathon Pearce though. Never forget his meltdown over goal line technology during the 2014 WC.

    That’s not your point though is it? The thread is called “women commentators on men’s football”, you made it about the commentators being women. If that’s not what you want to draw attention to, then call it “poor commentators on football”. And please don’t use the word “lady” when you mean woman unless you always call men “gentlemen”. Nuff said P.S. That is my favourite piece of video from last season without question. Absolutely superb.

    This is how I will remember Big Dunc. I was there that day. What a miserable match , but what a legend. A sad end to a wonderful sporting life. Closure for the family. Rest in peace now.

    I was brung up in the 70's in a house next to the stadium. 2 hours before the game a few Norwich players would walk to the ground from Thorpe, they would kick a football about with us kids and laugh and joke. Getting on for 40 years later (Watford game) my father in law was visiting and I managed to get a couple of posh seats. As I sat down I felt an elbow hit me in the ribs I look around and theres an old man sitting there. Bearing in mind I'm 6ft 5 and well built, I thought to myself this guys trying to pick a fight!!. Another elbow 5 seconds later and I asked him what he was playing at. He asked me if I recognised him and I said no. he said "I'm Duncan Foebes" I said "no way. Do you remember kicking the ball about on the bridge with the kids before the game?" he remembered everything. I spend the whole game talking to him and ignored my father in law. One of the great privileges of my life. Rest in peace my Hero

    Lol Morgan signed Big Dunc from Colchester at a time when Mid-table Div 2 (Champs) and a cup run was the best we did. By the time he hung up his boots we'd had 8 seasons's in the top flight and 2 Wembley cup finals. Duncan Forbes was a massive part of that success. I'd say the modern era would not have happened without him. So many memories from those years but not just the football. He was a big part of the community around the club. When my son Duncan was a baby he used to say "hello Little Dunc, I'm big Dunc". On away trips he'd order a crocodile sandwich "and make it snappy". He sadly spent the last years of his life stricken by alzheimer's. So sad and so unfair. Duncan's wife Janette came to our Still On The Ball group in the summer and shared some great memories and of course a few of those jokes. A Scotsman's favourite dessert? Tartan custard... RIP Big Dunc and thanks for everything.
