Norwich's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Bryan Gunn has been voted Norwich City's all-time cult hero by Football Focus fans.

Gunn won with 37% of the vote, ahead of fellow Norwich favourites Robert Fleck and Iwan Roberts.


Probably the first Norwich player I grew up to know the name of. Had great pace, a great finisher and nearly always has that cheeky smile.
Andrew Ramsay

A cheeky crowd pleaser who scored some great goals.
Matt Jenkins

Won over the crowd with some fantastic performances. Cheeky chap, great goals.
Steve Ingall

Always had that cheeky grin and mischievous style, as shown by his recent showing for Norwich at The Masters where he scored a couple and still managed time for a sin-bin!
Paul Blazey


Goalkeeper in the team which finished 3rd in the Premiership and a big part of City's European run.
Alex Bowen

No-one else had hair like his and such charisma between the sticks!!!
Lawrence Chilver

Not only a great goalkeeper, but also a brave man who played after his daughter died of cancer. A true hero who.
Shaun Otway

When he used to come on towards the Barclay he would run towards the goal and head the bar.
Matt D

Mildly eccentric at times, fantastic bloke who overcame personal tragedy when his daughter died from leukaemia.
Steve Ingall


I've not seen anyone score more goals for Norwich. Scored so many important goals. Left in the summer without being able to prove himself in the Premier League.
Alex Bowen

The gap-toothed Welshman's grin was the only thing that kept us from Division Two over two or three seasons - without him we would not be back in the top flight now.
Greg Scott

Legend. No need to say any more. And that toothless smile...
Matt D

The 'big man' will always be a legend for his goals and gappy grin.
Matt Jenkins

If anyone needs reminding why "the big man" is a cult hero at Carrow Road then they were obviously asleep for the whole of last season.
