1 - Jon Otsemobor2 - Injury time goal at Ipswich a few years ago to make it 1-1, Bent missed the penalty but then managed to tap it in I believe3 - Has to be the Colchester 1-7, really thought it was the death of our club that day. 4 - Glenn Roeder, just because of his attitude. 5 - Fozzy6 - Has to be the kit from out first premiership year

1. Player - Fotheringham - how he started every game is beyond me!! Also mentions for Sibierski who was absolutely useless.

1. Player - Mark Fotheringham (Can''t be Theoklitos because without him in goal that dreadful day Gunn wouldn''t have been sacked and Lambert wouldn''t have been brought in!)

2. Goal - Worst goal!? No such thing!

3. Match you''ve been to - Fulham, Premier League Season, May 2005 - (Wasn''t at Colchester game!)

4. Manager - Don''t have one - I have a liking for Grant, Roeder and Gunn for the fact that, like Theoklitos, they were so bad we had the downfall which without which we wouldn''t have Lambert!!

5. Captain - See Worst Player

6. Kit - White away kits! Might as well hold a flag up and shout "Surrender". Don''t like them!

Ah good, some excellent close season Sutchies to keep us amused!

 

1)      From alpha to omega the bloke was simply diabolical, yes you Daryl Sutch.  From the day you played up front away to Chelsea to ‘that’ penalty never has one player ever brought me so much misery has the hapless, hopeless Sutchy boy

 

2)      Technically speaking it would any of the four we put past poor old Barnsley that resulted in Gunn getting the job

 

3)      Any where Gunn was manager culminating in Relegation Sunday II at The Valley

 

4)      See above, I shudder to thinking about his time in charge and when I look nervously at next seasons fixture list I give thanks and praise to the Sainted  One, no not you Gunn

 

5)      Its my old chum Daryl again, unless I’m very much mistaken he had the captains armband for a game and I have a nasty feeling it was away to Birmingham.  We lost of course.

 

6)      The Poll & Withey had a nasty parochial feel to it, can’t think there are any real howlers. Whilst the bird dropping one of the early nineties was not the greatest we did of course play some of our finest football in it.

 

Bring on the Sutch fanciers

Player: John Hartson (Useless fat, bald tw@t)Goal: Bryan Gunns magnificent air kick that led to an own goalMatch: Season we got relegated from the championship Charlton at home in the FA Cup.

Player- David Marshall

Goal- has to be the one against us in the play off final, although beckfords against Leeds away in league 1 comes close

Match I''ve been to- Swansea this year? Long journey, massive expectation and no result

Manager- Roedent. Hucks, need I say more?

Captain- I liked him as a player, but the worst person at being a captain I''ve seen is Shackell

Kit- cotton colmans kit!

4. Manager - Glenn Roeder

5. Captain - Andy Hughes

6. Kit - 2006-08 kit was awful.

Player - Theres been a few but I''ll plump for Owain Tudor-Jones. Because I can''t even remember him playing.

Goal - Ullathorne/Gunn own goal vs scum. Simply because it was the winning goal we basically gifted to the scum.

Match - Man City 2005. To go from 2-0 up in 15 mins to lose 3-2 in the last minute was sickening to watch.

Manager - Again theres been a few but would have to go for Mr Gunn I''m afraid. It wasn''t our greatest period if the truth be told.

Captain - Mark Fotheringham

Kit - The mid 90''s "baggy fit" kit. The shorts made you look like you were wearing a skirt. I''m surprised little Robert Fleck didn''t get lost inside his kit whilst putting it on in the changing rooms.

1. Player - Juan Velasco, Ian Murray, Julien Brellier What were we thinking that season???

2. Goal - Counago, scum away 2002 after Bentsen Pen hit the post, wouldn''t have counted now as no city player had touched it before 2nd shot (which Greeno amazingly saved) had been taken.

3. Charlton Home FA Cup 2nd round replay under Roeder, we were woeful

4. Manager - Roeder, just for his arrogance and contempt for the fans.

5. Captain - Fotheringham, anyone can clap their hands and shout alot.

6. - the DPC ones were poor the DPC logo attracted all sorts of fluff and crap

Player: Carl Robinson. Didn''t seem to have any conceivable abilities whatsoever - couldn''t pass, couldn''t tackle, useless in the air, dreadful technique, no positional awareness... what a pathetic excuse for a professional footballer.Goal: John Byrne in 1992. As an impressionable 12-year-old I was so convinced we were going to win that day and go to Wembley, and I''ve never forgotten that lesson in misplaced optimism.Match: Colchester was so comical I could only laugh; as the first game of the season, it wasn''t as horrendous as the capitulation at the Valley in May 2009. That first half-hour against an already relegated team was utterly, utterly abysmal.Manager: For utter tactical cluelessness Grant takes some beating, but for his sheer lack of charisma, over-reliance on the loan market and unpleasant man-management skills, Glenn Roeder must take it.Captain: Mark Fotheringham, obviously.Kit: The all-yellow Colman''s kit. Felt like pyjamas, too dark a yellow, and getting rid of our green shorts was an absolute PR disaster!

1 Lee Croft.  Is he still playing somewhere, running the ball to the corner flag and falling over?

2 Megson OG at Ipswich in the last minute

3  5-0 defeat at Ipswich around 1977 was the most upsetting.  The 3-0 defeat at Plymouth just after Roeder took over was the worst performance I have seen from a Norwich side in 42 years.  Even worse than the 1-7

4 Roeder or Hamilton

5  I would have struggled with worst captain if other posters hadn''t reminded me of Fotheringham.  Perhaps I had just tried to blank him out of my mind!

6  Worst kit was reserved for probably our best ever team in 1993
