Paul Williams coming into Darren Moore's coaching setup is just as good news as Darren Moore himself

Williams has been involved with both Southampton and Norwich success and instrumental in developing younger players into first team superstars

 

Big thumbs up from me

Very highly rated too.

Fantastic. Nice to see a manager finally coming in with staff already lined up and joining straight away.
 

Something that hasn’t happened since since Steve Bruce, although his staff came in before him :laugh:

Darren Moore was surprisingly appointed as Sheffield Wednesday’s new manager this morning – and he’s already making changes to the club’s personnel.

His second-in-command at Doncaster was former Crystal Palace defender Jamie Smith, and according to the Doncaster Free Press, the 46-year-old will be joining Moore at Hillsborough.

But Moore will add even more experience to his staff with the appointment of Paul Williams, per Alan Nixon of The Sun.

Williams had notable spells as a player with Derby County and Coventry City, and has had a successful coaching career at various clubs and countries.

The 49-year-old served as Southampton’s Youth Development Coach between 2011 and 2014, overseeing the rise of the likes of James Ward-Prowse into the Saints’ first team.

Williams was also ‘Logistics Manager’ at Brentford in 2015, and went on to be the assistant at Swansea City and Birmingham City, and even spent a few months as manager of Nottingham Forest in 2016 following the sacking of Dougie Freedman.

More recently, Williams was the head coach of Norwich City’s under-18’s – a role he left last month – and before that he was at West Bromwich Albion as a scout, which is where his relationship with Moore will have blossomed.

He will likely coach alongside Neil Thompson – who has been caretaker manager for the Owls for the last two months – to form a very experienced backroom staff for Moore to work with as he looks to guide Wednesday up the table.

Did he used to play for us back in the 90s?

 

Or have I just made that up...

Ipswich away 0-2, opening game of the season, he was absolutely electric that day. Completely unplayable and ran on every blade of grass in the opposing half. My God we need a player like him now.

 

As for our new guy, I stopped reading at Southampton and Brentford. He’ll do for me.

A different one

Played for Derby, midfield, I think.

I always liked him, but at that time you had to have a foreign passport or be an International to satisfy our fan's.

I remember him playing for the sheep sh*****s, decent player.

 

Looking at his recent roles, he is bound to know a few good young uns, so we can do a Celtic on some other teams, hopefully.
