Two programmes in one
MOST clubs have just the one programme. But most clubs – actually all other clubs – aren’t West Bromwich Albion and they don’t have supporters like you. So we decided we’d give you two programmes in one.
For those of you concerned with matters current, we have your beloved Albion News filled with interviews, columnists, reports, stats, news from the Academy and a feature that younger fans are going to love – a selection of quizzes plus Boaz Myhill playing the numbers game.
And when you’ve done with that, turn it over and you get your full fix of Albion folklore in Full Throstle. In the words of Groucho Marx, it’s so simple a child of four could do it.
So this afternoon, we have….
* Tony Pulis calls for a change in the transfer window.
* Darren Fletcher reflects on a testing start to the season.
* James Chester reveals the enduring value of a good education.
* The Albion players club together to create a lasting memorial for supporter Miles Reid.
* We look at Chelsea and the men looking to kick start their season.
* There are in depth reports on the opening fixtures of the campaign.
* Under 18s skipper Jack Fitzwater goes on his summer holidays – with the first team.
* We pay tribute to Lady Barbara Millichip, Tony Millington and Danny Hegan.
* Tony Brown somehow misses a penalty. Then scores anyway.
* Kevin Donovan goes all Ted Rodgers with the 3-2-1 hand jive. Without the 1. And without Dusty Bin.
* Keith Andrews makes us laugh. A lot.
* We’ve got pictures of Albion versus Chelsea games galore, including a fantastic punch up.
* The cricket’s still on so we remember when Albion played Test matches.
* John Giles joins the Albion, then leaves very quickly after foretelling the future.
* And A History Of The Albion In 100 Objects would like to show you our etchings.
All of this and more in Albion News & Full Throstle, more than just a football programme. And we mean it because we will also be including money saving vouchers in each issue through the season.

There’s free child admission to Adventure Mini Golf at Star City with a full paying adult.
You can get free set up and tuning on a new TV at Hughes.
And, as if that weren’t enough, at every game this season there will be a special Albion News giveaway. One specially signed programme will be in circulation and if you are lucky enough to buy it, you will win a prize culled from deep within the dressing room – just ask Lisa Hocknull who walked away with Darren Fletcher’s match shirt after the Manchester City game if you don’t believe us.
