It's obviously an era topic, but Bomber for me as well. Astle was my hero though.  :-\

If we are talking hero's here and only one allowed it would have to be the player who cemented my love of Albion King Jeff.

For me I had my first season ticket in 91 it's Super Bob and maybe Big Dave would get very close... But obviously Cyrille, Astle etc are all legends of the club

I first went up in 1989. Someone's already said Bob, so I'll go with Daryl Burgess, gave us his best years, 12 seasons, 332 appearances. A very good defender when we were quite frankly, ****.
Proud to be a Baggie. BOING BOING.

Don't think anyone has mentioned Gary Megson...for me he is definitely a legend. Saved this club when things looked bleak to say the least and got the club going in the right direction again!

maybe you could also include Paul Thompson who helped save the club during Megson early period
