Albion News at the double

Bag your copy of United programme

ON Saturday afternoon we greet Manchester United as they chase down a place in the Europa League next season. And to celebrate, Albion News is back with a bang.

We talk exclusively to Diego Lugano about South American football, life in the Barclays Premier League, the upcoming World Cup and just what it means to captain Uruguay. 

Pepe Mel and Chris Brunt reflect on the events of the past fortnight and Tony Brown sounds a rallying call as we go in search of a first double over United since 1978/79. 

Talking of that legendary campaign, we look back at Albion's epic tussles with Valencia in the UEFA Cup from that season and we have a couple of very special pictures of Laurie Cunningham, star of that particular show, culled from deep in our archives.

We pay a fulsome tribute to the late Stan Rickaby, the final member of the celestial ‘Team of the Century’ from 1953/54 to go to his eternal reward. 

Our ‘Birth of the Cool’ feature will be a treat for chiropodists everywhere - there are lovely, soft feet wherever you look - while in our section on the visitors, Tony Brown pays tribute to his all-time idol, Denis Law.

So yes, all of this and less for a mere three English pounds. Get your ‘Albion News’ - you know it makes sense.
