From face value to pace valueAlbion News returns this afternoon for the visit of West Ham United and copies are available all around the ground for £3.50.
We’ve gone up close with Matt Phillips for our main interview today, a wide ranging piece that covers his pre-Albion career and the ambitions that he’s looking to fulfil now that he’s at The Hawthorns.
We delve in depth into what West Ham are all about this season and the kind of threat they will pose to us today.
There’s also a feature on a recent West Ham encounter, from the days when neither side had a sponsor and Iron Maiden were lifting holidaymakers to safety. Honest.
Tony Pulis and Darren Fetcher bring us their columns as we head off into three key games ahead of the next international break and we talk to our other captain – Premier League 2 side skipper Jack Fitzwater – about what leading the young Albion side means to him.
We’ve got comprehensive match reports from Middlesbrough and Bournemouth as well as a round up of all that went on the day Delhi Dynamos came to town – and if you missed that game, you can still get your hands on the postergramme we produced for that game, featuring Nacer Chadli, from our sellers around the ground.
Following the sad loss of Billy Brookes we have a full tribute to the man who was understudy to the great Ray Barlow for much of his Albion career and we reflect on a great early Albion skipper in Jem Bayliss, the first man to lift the cup for the Throstles.
We take a peek inside Tony Brown’s wardrobe to highlight some real objects of Albion desire while the great man’s column this week homes in on the young players creating such a stir in and around our first team at the moment.
We talk to Henry Winter about his recent book, “Fifty Years Of Hurt”, we match up two left-backs in Q&As from then and now and we look back on just how John Giles got this football club back on the straight and narrow.
All of this and plenty more in your essential companion to the Throstles, Albion News. You know it makes sense.
