Telephone Call from the Club
« on: April 02, 2020, 09:32:28 PM »
Hello to all of the fans on here born before 1951.

This afternoon, I had a brilliant telephone conversation with a guy from the Albion Foundation checking that I was OK.

We spent about 10 minutes talking about times gone by & although I'm personally not a fan of nostalgia, it would be terrific for some of our fans who are over 70 & feeling really lonely at the moment.

Just wanted to say, that it made me really proud to be part of an Albion family that are so caring in what has been the most trying period in my lifetime.

Apologies to any fans who were born before 1941 who must have had even more trying early days.
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion

The less he spoke the more he heard, why aren't we like that wise old bird?

Hi John yes I had a call from them the other night, they were checking on members of WBA  Disabled supporters club, I was quite annoyed really, the chap said we are checking on people over 65, I am only 63 :(  joking apart it makes you proud that the club we support are doing sterling work during this crisis.

That's a nice touch. How about calls for 35 year olds stressed from work?!

I think Albion and Wolves have done really well this last month, particularly us. Really glad to see us doing this sort of thing.

I had a call today, and the caller told me that 50 people have been tasked  with calling 3000 people to check on their well being.
Apparently I am one of 1800 over-seventy STH's and there are 1200 disabled and other groups who the club will try to assist if they are experiencing difficulties at the present time. Had a chat about the season so far, and I was assured that if I needed any assistance going forward , I could call the guy back and he would do his best to provide help. Good call from a nice guy, good shout by the club, much appreciated.

This is a message my mum put on Facebook yesterday. Whilst my dad is in hospital it really made her day. She spoke to Graham for about 30 minutes. I am chuffed to bits with our club. By the way I’m 60 next week ! And me my mum and my son are all STH and sit together in the east stand. I’ve been going for 52 years and never felt prouder of my club

“Today, after having had my husband admitted to hospital, not with Coronavirus , I came home a little downhearted.
Knew he was in the best hands and at teatime received a phone call reassuring me of his condition.
Noticed there was a message but didn't recognise the mans voice or even get his name.
Then whilst having a sandwich the phone rings.   The voice at the other end asked who this was and I replied
Mrs Bailey (thinking it was the hospital again). He then said this is GRAHAM WILLIAMS from WBA.  He asked how
I was and did I need anything with regard to the current situation. Wow I was bowled over. We continued to chat
about  everyday life and football.  I remarked about things I remembered in the past including the time
When, at 15yrs of age I worked for Vono Ltd in Tipton.   Now I knew he would remember this because he said
WBA used to train on our ground to which I replied we used to watch them from our office window and then
at lunchtime the team would come into our canteen and have lunch.  I still have my autograph book with
Bobby Robson and the rest of the team who signed it.  Graham and I had the most loveliest conversation.
He even asked who my favourite player was, without any hesitation I replied Brunty.  This was besides WBA
ringing two weeks ago to ask if they could be of any help or did we need anything.
 What a Club, brilliant in every way.
 Thank you all for caring and cheering me up on what has been a worrying day.
Love you all can't wait to get back to 3.00pm on Saturdays.”

There's bad news every day, & I think I'm coping, but (I'm sure like others) I have my moments, in what is a totally alien & surreal situation.
Have to say what the Albion are doing is really heartwarming.
All the best to you & your Dad & Mum.

Have to agree it is surreal times we are in and I thank you for your kind wishes. Let’s hope we are back at the Hawthorns sooner rather than later and we have found a vaccine for this curse

I lost my dad 3 days ago to Coronavirus and has completely ripped my life apart. He was only 57 and my best man at my wedding just 6 months ago.

Jake Livermore phoned me yesterday to have a chat. Unbelievable gesture.

He is a lovely man and I am so proud to support such a special club.

We are Albion.💙

Really good from the club that they are doing this. I’m so sorry to hear about people’s pain and loss at this time. I’m sorry to ask a materialistic question, how is the club doing this? Who are the phoning? All elderly supporters? Or anyone who is a season ticket holders?

Thank you.

I couldn’t believe it when I said hello and he said it’s jake Livermore. The club I have always loved and meant so much to me and dad has just gone above and beyond lately and even support from fellow baggies.

I am so proud to support this club.

We Need Ter Stop In – a Black Country Ode to COVID-19

by Chris Cartwright, April 2020.

We need ter stop in
Best not ter goo aht
Iss dodgy aht theer
Theer’s a virus abaht!

At best yo’ll get sick
Yo could wind up jed!
It doe tek much figerrin’
Try usin’ yeah yed !

If yoan gorra goo shappin’
Then leave a saefe gap
Between wheer yo’m stondin’
An’ the next nearest chap

If yo’m lookin’ fer bog roll
‘Ond gel or soap
I con saeve yeah a journey
Yo got no chuffin’ ‘ope

Iss important ter exercise
Ter stay ‘ealthy an’ strung
Just doe tek the mickey
An’ stop aht tew lung!

An’ if we all use some common
An’ show we bay fules
We con beat this ‘ere virus
If we foller the rules.

Stay saefe folks! Chris.

I lost my mother some time ago, she was also quite young, (early 60's), & even now, I remember how I felt. "Ripped my life apart" certainly resonates with me.
That was in "normal times", it must be really difficult in today's climate, the call from Jake must have helped to lift your spirits a bit
I wish you & yours well in this difficult time & it must be good to know you have the support of the Albion family

From someone who has lost a couple of close people too, I am really sorry to hear of your loss Tipton.

It is fantastic that the club are touching base with so many of the Albion fans and for Jake to call you was wonderful - a great guy.

Your wedding must have been special with your Dad as best man.

Take care mate
What have we done?
And what have we become

Hearing all these stories just show you how much class is at our club and we should all be proud of the club.

We need to get this message out to the media to show the rest of the country what a class club we support.

In times when we hear all the selfish acts and stories around footballers its great to hear things like this.

Pity our country isn't run the same way as West Brom.

Stay safe everyone and pure respect to all at Albion !!!

Thank you all fellow Baggies for the lovely messages.

I am raising money in his memory so if anybody has a couple of quid they can donate to a worthy cause it would mean a lot.

Thank you again

Hope it's not too clumsy of me to say that I am really sorry for everyone who has suffered loss but especially for those posting on this website as they're part of the Albion family  - and well done to the club for the telephone calls.

Just read that to my missus who is in bits now with tears streaming down her face. She said between wiping her eyes now I understand why you love that football club.

This is now national news. Its amazing that the Albion players and fan could achieve something the medical experts hadn't managed.  Massive credit to all those involved.
P.S. Not sure if they played The Lords My Shepherd. I know its played at funerals, but it would still have been appropriate at that time, as its basically a Christian message.
