Were you aware that the Throstles were the first English club to tour both the USSR and China, that Andy Johnson kept sheep, or that Tommy Glidden had a chrysanthemum named after him?

Tales of the bold, the beautiful, the odd and the awful abound through this Albion Miscellany with stories that date from the club's formation to the present day. So comrades of the People's Republic of West Bromwich, let this be your little blue book, crammed with philosophies by which to live chaste, virtuous, better lives.

About the Author:

Dave Bowler has been the writer of the Albion matchday programme and a summariser on Albion Radio since 2001. He has been an Albion supporter since birth, carrying on the family tradition. The proud possessor of concrete feet, writing for the programme is as close as he was ever going to get to playing for the club.

Laurie Rampling is Albion's club photographer, a fan since seeing them win the 1954 FA Cup final on a flickering TV set, so he could have ended up a Preston North End fan instead. The glory hunter continues to make the, frankly, barmy round trip from his home in Essex to photograph every Baggies game, home and away.
