Mark Hughes admits the performance against Manchester City was disappointing and has already started making plans to bolster his Fulham squad in January. He is aware, however, that he must not waste any of the limited resources he will be given in the transfer window.
"Things have been discussed already," Hughes said.
"If opportunities present themselves and they are within our means then we will try to add to the quality of the club.
"You can't make changes just for the sake of it though.
"Sometimes the players you need to bring in in those positions aren't available."
Hughes denied that CFR Cluj striker Lacina Traore is on his wish list and hinted that acquiring the likes of Shay Given, Roque Santa Cruz and Shaun Wright-Phillips, who have all been linked with the club in media reports this morning, would be beyond his means.
"We get linked with a lot of players here," the former Manchester United striker said.
"There were a number in the press today. More often that not they are wide of the mark and that's what I would suggest is the case with some of the names that have been mentioned this morning."
