No intrest!! so knocked it on the head.. you win some you loose some. thoughtthis forum would have some intrest but i will put it on the fail list. even a full page ad in the Halesowen and Dudley news failes to get intrest... more to do with every one as there away travel sorted.

You cant beat travelling to games on a double decker bus.I remeber travelling on a couple in the seventies, the ones you hop on the back end

The Old Birmingham Corp D9's loved them buses. With a conductor. Them were the days..

Just put a photo album on Facebook of our coaches in the Yard. if anyone is intrested to see the fleet its here.
A few likes would be nice guys if you have time. Thanks Rob

We don't have any old bangers, We could by one for away games for a bit of

Here's one of our Scania PB's which we will be using for Albion away days.
PS the driver is not me. Thats Pete who will drive some of the away days.

Never travel up Dartmouth Road. Did it once in 1979 I Think. (against Liverpool when Tony Godden gave the ball to King Kenny for him to score, Still drives me mad that) so avoid that route of about 25 years. Then i went that way (why i don't know why)  6 years ago and got taken of my Bandit (Suzuki 650cc) by a car. Sorry if you were late for the Hull Game (1st game of the season) as the road was closed for a couple of hours. I missed the game. was in a lot of pain in Dudley Road hosptial.. Needlesly to say never never using that road again..

Saw Ally Robertson selling BMW's on the Wolverhampton Road Oldbury a couple of years ago. Met him buying strimmer wire as well at the B&Q Warehouse on mucklow hill about 2 years ago.

I know what you mean about the cans, but as i said in another thread it is against the law. So we will not be doing it. I hope there are enough fans that want our kind of service. Its not the be all and end all of our business, Holidays are our main operation. But as a Baggies Fan myself just a service i would like to offer. I'm even going to drive one of the coaches myself just to keep my hand in. lol Been a Baggies fan since 1975 seen it all. Been a steward in the Rainbow/East Stand and was even a baggies Bonaza seller in the Brummie. Season ticket holder as well. Back in the day i have even followed the reserves away to Newcastle!!!

Not a requirement but as its close to Junction 1 and every Albion fan knows it, seemed like a good spot to pick up.

I think it is a bit of a stupid law. Trains for instance sell alcohol and the sporting specials still have people drinking on them. Seems like bureaucracy for the government to introduce laws stopping people.

I agree but the problem is i don't make the rules but as a responsible tour operator we follow them.

Each run as been timed to 1 hour. from start to motorway. Its impossible to cover every area. as we are based in Halesowen then we have started here. if there is enough demand we can start another route. But everyone as to start somewhere.

How do the Black Country coaches get away with it then?

Exactly they get away with it!

Used Mann's coaches, they would advertise the away travel on "their state of the art coach", then an old banger would turn up on the Saturday. Mind we always got there and back, well nearly every time, alternative was Gliderways who offered 'similar' mode of transport. Happy days.

We don't have any old bangers, We could by one for away games for a bit of

weres the pick up points mate & would we be able to bring beer on the coach?

All the pick up points are now in the announcments section..

and who remembers Sealandair, global & airflow coaches use to take me to matches in the seventies

I remember Global but was spelt Glowbelle i used to drive for them many moons ago. Also remember Sealandair many a away game on them. can't say i ever heard of airflow!

You'd have alot more interest if you let people have a few cans!

Its against the law to have Alcohol on Football coaches.
Again i will stress our coach will be family friendly with NO ALCOHOL.


I ask the question as i remember travelling all over the place until the 80's. Then after problems at QPR (WINDSCREEN SMASHED) Evergreen stopped the away travel. Anyway onto the shameless plug. I now run Evergreen Holidays and was thinking of reintroducing WBA Away games. Using the old pickup's and at a reasonable price. This is not an add just asking around if anyone would use the service if reintoduced?

I'm going to stick my neck out and say...

 ... There is absolutely no chance of the FA employing both Harry and Roy. I can't believe that anyone trusts anything written in the daily mail especially something this ridiculous.

Things change in a couple of weeks!!!

Whenever this comes up I post something about being visible in loud colours, and people shoot it down in flames.  But if it's .05 of a second when picking out a cross, and maybe mostly subconscious or whatever, because you are aware of your team mates fractionally more quickly, then over a game or a season it's going to matter.  Teams in red statistically win more often.  Black will blend into the crowd, as will grey, as Man U found out a few seasons ago.

Yellow and Green for me, might be hideous, but boy it was visible in the 70s!!

i agree, in the late 70's at Forest Francis got Robertson to tape an extra white band on his socks, he said he could then pick him out on the wings a lot easier, he would only have to half glance up to see him instead of completely raising his head. As as the older members here will remember boy did it work! It could also be a reason some top strikers wear silly bright coloured boots, just  think about it.
