Mowbray has added the likes of defender Frazer Richardson and midfielder Dean Whitehead to the mix to supplement the qualities already offered by Jonathan Woodgate, Stuart Parnaby and their existing team-mates.

Williams told the Northern Echo: "I think we are close to being very good. The gaffer has brought in some real quality and experience, which was needed.

"We had a very young team with some loan players last year and it's nice to have some players in that know the game and have been around a long time.

"It's helping me with Frazer, Parns and Woody and also George, and the lads have benefited from some older heads coming in.

"I think this year there is competition behind us, which is keeping us going. The more of that the better for the starting XI."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
