Norwich have turned into us under John Duncan 13:14 - Sep 13 with 1691 viewsRIPbobby

They have now lost most of the quality in their side and the quality that is left is past their best. They seem to be buying 'Utility' players ala John Dunan, who regularly bought a player who was an OK full back, and OK midfielder and could also cover in goal if necessary. The are very much turning mediocre. In fact we are in serious danger of claiming back the pride of Anglia.

As for us we have the basis of a side now. Perhaps 2 seasons away from being dangerously competitive.

Put it this way, he bought Sergei Ballscratcher (often considered the best sweeper in world Football) and played him in midfield. Ballscratcher did in fact score the opener on his debut, but that kind of sums up what Mr Duncan did.

Sorry I couldn't help but change Sergei's surname. :)

Oh I do hope so.

Despite the past few years being grim for us, I always look back on the Duncan reign as our darkest hours.

It would be fantastic if them lot up the road had a few years of that to endure.

It was dreadful wasn't it. Crikey being in the old division 2 back then teams used to look forward to the mighty Ipswich Town coming to play them. It is fair to say we have lost that aura we used to have.

That maybe so, but it still doesn't detract from the fact that the Duncan Era was the worst period for many Town fans aged in the 40's / 50's bracket.

Maybe the fact that we had grown up watching Sir Bobby's amazing teams spoilt us, but the rapid decline after he left to manage England was blatantly obvious in the Duncan days.

Whilst the past 10 years or so have not given us much to cheer about, I think the expectations in the 2000's have been less than in the early - mid 80's.

I showed my (16 year old) son the league tables from early 70's to early 80's and he couldn't believe our final league positions over the course of a decade or so.

He was ironically born just before our last 2 seasons in Europe. He has to put up with me rambling on about visits to Moscow, Helsingbourg, Prague, Luxembourg, Serbia and Milan, whereas the highlight for him following the Town was the League Cup semi final against Arsenal.

As I keep telling him, when Town finally do achieve something again, it will be all the more special after waiting so long.

Keep the faith!

Think you can remove the "under John Duncan" from the OP title.

I thought it was clear he meant only started in last 2 seasons of Duncan but everyone has read it differently

Correct, unlike my shocking typing the other day.

I wasn't very old when I first started supporting ITFC and it was Duncan's last couple of seasons before he was sacked. The only thing I remember was a 5-0 defeat to Shrewsbury over Christmas, just wondered if the team hoofed it or played it on the deck?

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I will go and watch the Lincoln City cup replay as punishment!
