West Brom chairman John Williams offers exciting words on squad development

West Brom have been in good form of late with a number of strong performances seeing them climb up the table.

West Brom have been in very good form over the last few weeks with a number of encouraging results seeing them rise up the table to ninth. Their latest game, a 1-1 draw with Hull City, sees them continue to move away from the relegation zone and Baggies' chairman John Williams has been speaking to the Express and Star about how he plans to rejuvenate his team.

Tony Pulis has come in for some flack of late, however, their recent run has seen this dissipate somewhat, with faith in the manager growing slowly. In fact, they have now registered 17 points this campaign, meaning they are six clear of the relegation zone, and only three points behind Manchester United.

It seems to be a time of change for the Baggies with their league position improving each week. One man that has a lot of power when it comes to the Baggies is chairman John Williams who has outlined his plan for rejuvenating West Brom and refilling the Hawthorns, as reported by the Express and Star: "The proof of the pudding is that a supposedly ‘shambolic’ transfer window has produced 30 per cent new outfield players in the first team, three out of 10. Another regularly comes off the bench. If we can do that from every transfer window and improve the team then I’ll take it.

"The squad needs some re-engineering, and we will do our utmost to improve it. I want the club to fill the ground and start winning games at home. We will do everything we can to keep the cost attractive and affordable for our fans.

"We want to keep the price down but at the same time we also want to put the best team on the field we possibly can."

It will hugely encourage the fans to see that their chairman is thinking about the constant improvement of the team, as he should be. However, new transfers and the use of funds for players is not always forthcoming, therefore Williams' words should fill the fans with optimism.

First though, they need to continue their good form in order to progress through the Premier League season. Perhaps in January and then in the summer, Pulis will see reinforcements to his squad, something that will be vital if they are to improve on last term. 

Next, Williams will see West Brom take on Watford, who are actually a single point and place about the Baggies. A victory could see them jump up to sixth if those above them lose, which would be yet another example of how far this side has come.
