West Brom boss Tony Mowbray won't alter his transfer plans, despite their precarious position.
"I'm hoping they've learned we're a pretty good side and that in all those games we competed for long spells," he told the Birmingham Mail.
"I won't change my principles. As a club, if you're ever going to be a top team you have to be able to play in a certain manner, have players who can manipulate the ball, who understand the game, the flow of a game.
"The bigger picture is trying to put the foundations down for a club that is successful in terms of winning in the long term. Sometimes these plans can be perceived to hit the rocks.
"You have to look beyond the short-termism and try to take the club in the right direction by looking at the bigger picture."
