Cyrille Regis aged 59

Sorry to hear this - the second member of Ron Atkinson's 'Three Degrees' to pass away, after Laurie Cunningham, which means that only Brendan Batson is now still alive. Check out the video of their 5-3 victory at Old Trafford from December 1978 for one of their finest moments.

I also seem to recall Regis scoring a Goal of the Season contender (not sure if it won the accolade) against Norwich City at the Hawthorns, when he received the ball in midfield with his back to goal, turned his man and raced forward before unleashing an unstoppable shot to the top corner.

May He Rest In Peace.

That's very sad. A very good friend of mine is a Coventry fan, and I remember in the mid 80s the chant he used to sing incessantly.

"Nice one Cyrille, Nice one son,
Nice one Cyrille, let's have another one"

Remember him well, though I thought it Johnny Giles was the manager that brought him on at West Brom.  RIP.

I think it was Ron Atkinson who brought the "Three Degrees" on at WBA Billy.
I saw Big Cyrille play many times against us, an awesome sight in full flight.
A trailblazer and pioneer and more importantly a thoroughly decent human being.
RIP Cyrille.

was that originally for Cyril Knowles of Spurs? Regis was good... very strong. Sad he is gone so young. RIP

Rufus mentioned Brendan Batson above as the third member, I thought it was Remi Moses - maybe I'm completely off-kilter here.

No, it was Remi before he joined that club that should not be spoken of in polite society.
I have more respect for a man
that says what he means and

Regis arrived at WBA shortly after Giles had resigned.

The "Three Degrees" were Regis, Cunningham and Batson.  Moses came along a few years later

Hopefully it wasn't second degree murder.


Btw it was Justin Fashanu who scored that cracker against Liverpool for Norwich.

I don't think that's the goal being described above. That Fashanu goal I remember as he receiving the ball with his back to goal, I think Hanson was marking him. He kind of flicked it up and swivelled and hit it. Into the Kop end I think? Great goal.

I was wrong on 2 counts. It was Carrow Road, and it wasn't Hanson. Looks like maybe Alan Kennedy.

This is Cyrille Regis' goal v Norwich. Goal of the Season it says.

Yeah, that was Alan Kennedy.  Liverpool won 5-3.
