With the sad passing of Cyrille Regis today, Pies thought it only right that we give the man the retrospective his brilliant career so duly warrants.
The dynamic striker spent the best days of his career attaining legendary status at West Brom, but also enjoyed successful stints at Coventry City (winning an FA Cup), Aston Villa, Wolves and Wycombe Wanderers thereafter.
