V sad news. Itís weird but that WBA team were just one of the late 70s/early 80s special teams that I used to love watching on the tv - not sure why, but nowadays it isnít just the same for me re other teams. WBA with Regis, Cunningham,Batson, Statham were fantastic. Could say the same for the Ipswich, Villa, Forest, Liverpool teams.

Try watching this YouTube video of West Brom beating Man Utd 5-3 at Old Trafford in Dec 1978 and I think you will get a very good idea of how great they were.

They finished 3rd in Division One that season winning lots of friends along the way.

Laurie Cunningham was so good he was sold to Real Madrid.

Big Cyrille was the perfect centre forward and had a knack of scoring thunderous goals and bullet headers. His goals were always a bit special.

And Brendon Batson was an attacking right back that was knocking on Englandís door.

And donít forget they had the England captain Brian Robson in central midfield

All in all they were heady days for WBA. And we all enjoyed watching them play for exactly these reasons

Watched Cyril more or less every Cov home match when I was a stoodent up there. An incredible player, carried the whole team really. By the time he was at Highfield Road (RIP) his pace had dropped a bit and he relied more on brains and skills.

He wasnít really an old fashioned striker, had a top notch first touch and a great pass. It might have said 4-4-2 in the programme, but he often played on his own up front, could take care of two centre backs easy. No one could believe he didnít play more for England, only Francis was in the same class.

Here's Clyde on Ron: ďWhen I played it was tough but I was at the right place and the manager, Ron Greenwood, has to take a lot of credit because West Ham were probably the first club to establish black players like John Charles, his brother Clive and Ade Coker,Ē he said.

Fair comment , but 5 caps ffs!.

People like entertaining teams that win **** all, and hate teams that actually win things like Ferguson's Man Utd. I suppose that's natural and not surprising.

Because Cyrille was a great footballer who scored fantastic goals. He had a long and successful career. Was one of the poster boy role model footballers for young black footballers (and for young white footballers like me too - he was my one of my heroes). He was revered and admired by supporters at every club he played for. He never reacted to the racial abuse coming his way (this was 7 years before they threw bananas at Wright and bright at Elland Road). He was enormously respected by his fellow players.

I think that makes Cyrille very special. Sad that you donít agree.

I wasn't around then, so can't say.

I was just asking why that WBA team was "special" when they won FA, but it's OK I'll leave this thread now and you can all pretend they were English football's answer to Brazil 1970.

I think that makes Cyrille very special. Sad that you don’t agree.
Boxthorncutter comes across as a total twat (at best) and I think that Regis was such an inspiration to young black players could have a lot to do with the attitude he is showing on this thread.
