#AlbionAdvent: Super Bob secures promotion

3 December 2015

Day three of our Christmas Advent Calendar

It’s the third picture in our #AlbionAdvent Calendar and today’s is best summed up by one quote.

“I’ve got my beloved Baggies to the promised land,” said Bob Taylor after scoring the second goal in the delirium-triggering 2-0 defeat of Crystal Palace on the last day of the 2001/02 season.



He wheeled away in front of the Birmingham Road End while behind him Danny Dichio prepared to join the celebrations while a forlorn Palace keeper surveyed the damage beyond him.

Anyone remember his name? 

It was the Latvian Alexandrs Kolinko, a role taken today by Finlay Osborn. Our thanks to Elliott Betjemann (Danny Dichio) and Archie Kirton who volunteered for the job thousands of Baggies fans dreamed of back then. 

Being Super Bob.
