West Brom boss Tony Mowbray says his team has a greater spirit than the one he inherited.
"I would suggest that one or two of those players (who have moved on) would help improve our current squad,'' he said.
"The quality individuals within that group would definitely improve us but football is about a team.
"Some of them have got the right attitude to be a team member, yet at the time I was managing a group of individuals really - I've said that for a long time.
"There was not a great love between that group of players, there was no affinity, there was no togetherness - and if you are going to be successful you have to have that.
"If I could have one or two of them now in my team, I think they would improve things, of course - Curtis Davies, all day long. He's a top player, like one or two others.
"But is the team better? I think we are more of a team. The team works hard for each other. The components know how to function within the team."
