Albion News back for the cup!

Matchday programme on sale at tonight's clash

IT'S Capital One Cup time again but you won't need to get the plastic out to buy a copy of Albion News, our award-winning, inflation-busting matchday programme on sale for our game with Arsenal, 84 action packed pages bursting with juicy goodness for a mere £3.

Most of us have a longstanding connection to Albion, but even the most ardent supporter will be hard pushed to match Kevin Keen. 

Albion's joint-assistant head coach has been inextricably linked with the Throstles since he was just a week old - find out how in our exclusive interview.

Here's a clue. Our "Now It Can Be Told" feature, looking back at past programmes, revisits black Wembley days from the history of both clubs in this issue.

We also have an extensive review of Arsenal's record in the Football League Cup, from disaster to triumph and then on to casualty, plus a feature on one of their greatest ever captains, Frank McLintock.

"But what of the Albion?" we hear you say. "Plenty" comes the reply. 

Our usual columnists are present and correct, Steve Clarke, Chris Brunt and Tony Brown all busy telling it like it is. 

In honour of a visit from Londoners, "A Love Supreme" focuses on Albion fans who live in exile in the capital, and "Rhapsody In Blue & White" recalls a day when we ruined a very special party at White Hart Lane.

Wayne Fereday is subjected to a grilling about his time as a Baggie and the prolific pen of legendary cartoonist Norman Edwards serves up some cup tie specials. 

We've also got a very special of the 1931 Throstles on their way to immortality at Wembley - it's like an M&S ad gone mad.

And as if all that wasn't enough, we've come up with a comprehensive and winning solution to all the problems surrounding the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
