I am devastated to hear the terrible news about Cyrille’s death today. 59 years old, awful. He was a magnificent player for us, Villa, Coventry and of course the Albion. The kind of player that as a youngster in the late seventies I just prayed we might buy off the Baggies. It was a pleasure to finally get to see him in Old Gold, albeit in the twilight of his career in the early 90s.

Powerful, direct, great on the ball, superb finisher and a great link up player too. By all that I’ve read over the years, a terrific man too. A real ambassador for football in every way. With my Albion family connections I was lucky enough to see him in Blue and White in his pomp on many occasions.

A truly great player whose recognised talent and ability transcended traditional footballing divides. My condolences to all that knew and loved him.

Also a sad day closer to home for me in Chester where Cyrille finished his playing days. He was clearly always a gentleman in spite of the horrific abuse he and his colleagues suffered in order to make black players an accepted part of the game. He has been taken far too early
RIP

Sad day. Happy memories of a good man. (And slight trepidation that people way younger than me are popping off).
