Jonny Williams: Hoping to fire Crystal Palace back to the Premier League

The 19-year-old midfielder is the latest product of the famed academy system at Selhurst Park to make his mark in the senior ranks.

Much of the attention this season may have been focused on his club colleague Wilfried Zaha, who has already earned himself a move to Manchester United, but Williams is being touted as the man most likely to be treading a similar path in the not too distant future.

Manchester City are already said to hold an interest, but Williams is looking to avoid any distractions between now and May, with the youngster determined to make it into the Premier League with Palace.

Williams, who has shone this season after bouncing back from a broken leg, said: "If we were in the top two and then fell out at the end it would be a blow going into the play-offs.

"But as we're third with nothing to lose, we can just come up and nick it at the end of the season.

"At the start of the season if someone had said top six, then that would have been great.

"It would be a dream to go up. To be at the club for so long and to get promoted, after all the stuff I've had with injury would be a dream come true.

"I was there at the play-off final in 2004 with my brother and my dad. And to think this team could actually achieve that this year is mind-blowing."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
