There certainly won't be a raft of players, it'll be fine-tuning if anything," Smith confirmed. "We made 12 signings in the summer and I've seen enough of them to see they're progressing as a team and getting better.

"At the moment we’re having discussions of possibilities. But that’s all they are."

"At the moment, we've got two players for each position," he said, looking ahead to January 1.

"It's hard enough for the players who aren't playing regular but, as I've said before, it's their job to keep me happy not the other way around because they've got to be pushing for a place in the team.

"I'm always open to additions to better the squad. They've got to be better than what you've got.

"A conversation myself, Christian (Purslow) and (sporting director) Suso have had when we're looking at additions is they've got to be better than what we've already got.

"We're continuing to do that (improving players), that's the ethos of the club, players wanting to learn and get better. We're working daily to help them improve and I'm seeing improvement individually and the team as a whole.

"If Suso comes to me and says I've got a player and we go, 'Wow!' - obviously you're silly not to explore that further."

Our opponents tend to look better against us than anyone else. Look at those ****** Chelsea, for instance...

Sorry but that's a load of bollocks from DS, I know he has to be diplomatic but to say we have two players for each spot means nothing if the players selected are playing poorly but you can't replace them because the player waiting in the wings is even worse.

I hope he's just being diplomatic because if he really thinks we don't need improving then we are in trouble. Not signing another striker means we will be visiting The Sty next season.

I suspect and hope he is, it is a worry though, if that’s what he really thinks

They’ll have targets like everyone else.
Just not showing his hand that’s all.
DS will be well aware of the situation.
A lot of people on here are already giving up on the guy while he’s going through his first true test.

Are they old quotes from Dean?  Because we seem to have gone backwards, or at the very least, stalled, recently.

I always find my team at work improves massively when I loudly, so that they can all hear, tell another manager that my gang are wank, just arent doing it and that I'd much prefer their individuals instead. The work ethic and productivity sees exponential increases after such public outbursts.

I'll be playing with 40+ year olds at five aside tonight that would be an improvement on Wesley.  Sticking a pin in a list of strikers from League 1 and 2 would yield similar results.

I don't think it's just a forward we need.  We really need some midfield control too.
