Excited Williams Says 'This Could Be Our Season'

Excited Williams Says 'This Could Be Our Season'

Ashley Williams says all the players are excited as they believe this could be 'our' season as we look to gain promotion to the Premiership.

The Swans have come close to reaching the play-offs in the last two seasons. Finishing 8th under Roberto Martinez and beating that last year by finishing 7th - can we go one better this year?

Brendan Rodgers' side are currently in 4th place but we've suffered a drop in form recently and we need to re-produce the quality we showed earlier in the season if we are to stay where we are in the table.

Williams said:

'Everyone is excited,'

'We feel like it could happen for us this season.'

We have had a couple of chances to get in there and obviously it would have been nice to do it,'

'But we can't get too concerned about it because you don't get anything for being second in December.

'As long as we are within touching distance, which we are, then we are happy.

'It is where you are in May, not December, that counts.'

'I think whoever plays best in April will be the teams that get over the line,' the Welsh international adds.

'The games then are the ones which will really determine who finishes where.'


Williams is also looking forward to the Boxing Day trip to table-toppers QPR:

'Personally I love going to Loftus Road,'

'It's a nice, tight ground and they are going well, so the atmosphere should be good.

'It's always interesting to play one of Neil Warnock's teams — although I think he has chilled out a bit this year.

'We acquitted ourselves well when we played them at home.

'We felt we could and should have won and we will go there looking for victory.'

Pie in the sky, Ashley Williams. The club haven't got the ambition to be in the Premier League plus with an inexperienced manager at the helm, I feel the playoffs are the most that we can get to this season. And the fact we don't score enough goals will see us fall at that stage. Reality is hard but there it is.
