A New Year, a new era. In January 1978, Ron Atkinson took the helm at West Bromwich Albion, and began one of the most memorable periods in the club's history. The flamboyant Atkinson had an immediate impact, and the club was soon in the media spotlight. With some incredible victories at home and abroad, the baggies were breaking new ground all the time, not least by employing football's 'Three Degrees': Regis, Cunningham and Batson, spearheading the first wave of black players in the English game. With players such as Bryan Robson, Willie Johnston, Derek Statham and Tony Brown gracing the Hawthorns pitch, the crowds flocked to catch a glimpse of their heroes, as Albion rubbed shoulders with football's elite and took the good word to the Far East, as the first English club ever to visit China. Relive the big games and the moments that created this special era, when Big Ron was the man in charge. Featuring the European encounters with Galatasaray and Valencia, and the unforgettable 5-3 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
