McAuley, Pulis, Fletcher, Hunt, Brown, Burgess are all here
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 and we’ve turned Jonas Olsson into numbers.
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, why, it’s so simple a child of four could do it.
So on Monday night for the visit of Everton, we have….
Gareth McAuley keeps it clean at home and abroad.
Tony Pulis looks at the value of being prepared.
Darren Fletcher reaps the dividends of a punishing pre-season.
We’ve got a plethora of pics from the opening of the Fanzone.
Young Danny Barbir gets ready for the U17s World Cup.
Want to know about Everton? We’ve got them covered.
We’ve got a match report about beating the Villa and a slightly less thrilling one from Southampton.
Andy Hunt Hunt Hunt comes on as sub.
A young lady faints in 1954.
According to Tony Brown, we beat Everton to win the FA Cup in 1968. Not sure we’ve ever mentioned that when they’ve visited before.
Daryl Burgess has a sausage roll for Christmas dinner.
And we mark the start of Black History Month by reflecting on the way three men rehabilitated the reputation of an entire region.
All of this and plenty 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.
You can save £6 on a 24 game subscription to Albion News and Full Throstle.
On the day, you can save 50p on our pre-match catering in the concourses.
You can get cut-price delivery and removal of a scrap item for £10 at Hughes.
A child gets free admission with a paying adult at the Adventure Island Mini-Golf at Star City.
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 – last time around we gave away Rickie Lambert’s signed training top.
Check @wbafcprogramme for news of this week’s prize.
As well as the usual sales points in & around the stadium, there are new locations where you can pick up your Albion News. They are:
The Sportsman (High St), @TheVineFood (Roebuck St), the new Supporters Club (Roebuck Lane), The Hawthorns train / metro station...1/2
2/2... Outside the cricket club, outside East End Foods car park, outside Hughes (Birmingham Road). You know it makes sense
