Can you remember the word 'sucky' to mean 'gormless'? Is it still used, I haven`t heard it for years?

I wonder what the derivation was.

Somebody with a sallow complexion was said to be a "Sucky cheeked fu**er" when I worked at Raleigh. They were gormless too !!

I'm pretty sure when I was a kid, if someone was described as sucky, they had a gormless look about them, like their mouth hanging open.

Sucky another name for being soft or affectionate. To show you loved someone.

Had a dual meaning to us: Sucky sod - overly sentimental and gormless (not necessarily at the same time)

Katyjay, that's the definition that I knew as a kid. When I lived in Clifton, I remember being with my Mum and passing a girl with just the look you describe and Mum saying: " She's a sucky looking so and so"

My  mother and her mother used the term 'sucky' to be someone not very bright, thick or walking around with their mouth open! At that probably Aspley, Hyson Green or Radford terminology.

Katy, that fits in with some of the other posts, as Mum was born in Dunkirk and moved to Bilborough when she was seven.
