4. Andy Thompson
West Brom – 1985-86
Wolves – 1986-97
Andy Thompson played one season for West Brom in 1985-86. He appeared in 24 league games and scored 1 goal. He then joined Wolves and went on to make 451 appearances in an 11-year stay at Molineux.
Thompson also notched 45 goals and cemented his status as the undoubted penalty king of his Wolves era. He epitomised versatility, playing in a variety of positions for Wolves, but most commonly as a full-back.
He was part of the Wolves revival of the late 1980s which saw the club bounce back from near extinction to win successive Fourth and Third Division championships and the Sherpa Van Trophy at Wembley in 1988.
3. Cyrille Regis
West Brom – 1977-84
Wolves – 1993-94
Not many Wolves players can turn up at The Hawthorns and get a standing ovation from the West Brom fans, but Regis was something special.
The former England, West Brom and Wolves striker had such an impact on football that there were tributes held to him across English football when he passed away in 2018.
Regis was part of the Albion team of the late 1970s and early 1980s, scoring 81 times in 241 games. Regis went to Wolves in 1993 after spells at Coventry and Aston Villa.
2. Steve Bull
West Brom – 1985-86
Wolves – 1986-99
Steve Bull is one of the greatest ever to have played for both Wolves and West Brom. The only reason Bull is not on top of this list is that he only made a handful of appearances for West Brom before joining Wolves in 1986. ‘Bully’ played just four times for the Baggies, scoring two goals as they were relegated from the old Second Division.
He was sold to Wolves. In 561 appearances, Bull scored 306 goals and earned 13 caps for England despite never playing in the top-flight. His legacy at the Molineux Stadium will never be forgotten.
1. Ally Robertson
West Brom – 1969-86
Wolves – 1986-90
Robertson spent his entire footballing career in the Black Country. For just under two decades, the hard-as-nails centre-back played over 500 times for West Brom in one of their best eras in their long history.
Somehow Robertson never won a cap for Scotland despite spending much of his career playing at the top end of English football with the Baggies.
In 1986, Robertson joined Wolves, helping them win back-to-back promotions and captained them to the Football League Trophy in 1988. Not many players have made such an impact as Robertson for both clubs, which puts him top of t the list of players to have played for both Wolves and West Brom.
