The matchday magazine cover for Albion's Emirates FA Cup tie against Crystal Palace.

In our 100-page FA Cup issue of the matchday magazine, we take an extended look at both the history of the competition and Albion’s role in it.

With a number of enthralling ties having taken place this weekend, we take a look back at the thrills and spills of the club's third round games down the years.

Richard Carpenter recalls one particular encounter, against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, and he also reveals a rollercoaster ride of emotions against tonight’s opponents Crystal Palace.

Inevitably, we take a look back at the infamous FA Cup second replay against the Eagles in 1976, likewise a tie between the sides in 1932 – a season in which Albion played no fewer than 11 matches in the competition!

Alan Mullery reveals his admiration for current Palace boss Roy Hodgson while Gary O’Reilly, who played for both sides and will be interviewed pitchside on Monday, recalls his goalscoring appearance in the FA Cup Final in 1990.

Back to the present day, cover star Beram Kayal looks forward to the game after a difficult first half of the season, and tells us about his favourite cup memory, albeit north of the border with Celtic.

We also catch up with Tim Krul, who is hoping to once again make an impression in a cup tie for the Albion. He also talks candidly about his arrival on the south coast and the season to date.

For younger fans, our fab pull-out section is once again jam-packed with news, interviews, cup quizzes and stats. Then flip it over to reveal a huge poster featuring an Albion first-team player – perfect for your bedroom wall!

For all this plus much, much more, make sure you pick up a copy of our award-winning matchday magazine, plus pull-out, available in and around the Amex Stadium, priced £3.50.
