¿Que hay?
Plenty as it happens, for Albion enter a new era under Spanish leadership against Everton this evening (ko 8pm) and Albion News is here to tell you all you need to know.
We have the first exclusive column from Pepe Mel himself, setting out his blueprint for the future here at The Hawthorns. It is not as lengthy as one of his novels, but if you want to know what the future holds for Baggies fans, here’s where to find out.
Tony Brown gives his thoughts on the appointment while skipper Chris Brunt reflects on the hard work done by Keith Downing and the coaching staff prior over Christmas and the New Year.
Zoltan Gera is the victim of our main interview tonight, reflecting on two years of injury trials and looking forward to a footballing old age to rival Ryan Giggs.
Looking to the future, there’s the inside line on the Albion trip to India that sees the club looking to open up a fresh supporting frontier.
On matters past, we pay fulsome tribute to the late John Silk LLB, reflect upon what would have been Norman Heath’s 90th birthday, investigate the perils that beset the Class of 1907/08, and recall an era when go-go dancers bestrode The Hawthorns.
If that’s not enough, we also fish Jimmy Hagan out of the cut.
We look in depth at Roberto Martinez’s Everton, not least their centre-forward, and we recall the great days of their peerless left-back, Ray Wilson. Theirs, not ours. And, just because they are here, we go back to the FA Cup campaign of '68. But no, not that game. Even Everton fans will enjoy looking back at the one we have picked.
