Hi Rob,

My Dad was a Baggies fan, his last good memory was the '54 Cup Final.

Hi Rob

Why are WBA called "The Baggies"?  would love to know, if my memory serves me right when they beat Everton in the Cup in 1968 was the score 2-0?

Rob,

That's right, they had a few internationals like Ronnie Allen, Kevan and so on....they took over from Wolves as the best of the Midlands, despite Wolves having Players like Billy Wright, Bill Slater, Jimmy McMullen, Harry Hooper and Bert Williams in goal.

Hi Norma
               score was 1-0 Astle scored the winner. As regards Baggies no one is sure , most popular theory is that Villa fans used it first to Albion fans who used to wear baggy trousers in the foundries where they worked. This of course was 100 plus years ago foundries have more or less gone in the region now.
                                                                                                                                                               Rob

Hi Norma The reason for your nickname comes from an old shop at Goodison Park called Mother Nobletts toffee house which sold Everton mints on match days,, good luck next season(apart from Dec 19th and March 13th  ;)
