West Brom's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Cyrille Regis has been voted West Bromich Albion's all-time cult hero by Football Focus viewers.

Regis won with 65% of the vote, ahead of fellow West Brom legends Derek Statham and Willie Johnston.

CYRILLE REGIS: 65%

Big Cyrille will always have a place in the hearts of true Baggies - loads of memorable goals and his sheer power and skill were totally awesome when he was in his prime.
Lee Edmunds

To vote for Cyrille Regis text REGIS to 81111.

DEREK STATHAM: 8%

Legendary full-back, revolutionised the role, using his lightning speed to dart up field at every given opportunity, but even when caught always willing to track back and recover. A True legend. Epitomised the attacking style of football of our team in the late 70's.
Eolan Allen

To vote for Derek Statham text STATHAM to 81111.

WILLIE JOHNSTON: 27%

Fast (and ferocious) winger, extremely talented and, unlike most wingers, never anonymous (except FA Cup semi-final 1978). 100% commitment which sometimes landed him in trouble (sent off, I think, 11 times).
Mark Townsend

Breathtaking - A wizard on the Wing.
Barry Cope

In doldrums of Division Two - the man who was worth the entrance fee alone, even when results and performances weren't what would be hoped. Always up to entertain the crowd, regularly giving up an excellent crossing opportunity to go back and beat a player a second time, which he regularly did.
Eolan Allen

To vote for Willie Johnston text JOHNSTON to 81111.
