Rhys Williams: Has supported Tony Mowbray's summer moves

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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
