Laudrup has reiterated that he is not interested in stockpiling players even though the Swans face a Europa League challenge after winning the Capital One Cup.

While the Swansea manager is keen to trim his squad, he is optimistic of adding some quality to his starting team.

"Right through January I was asked about which players might be coming or going," Laudrup said.

"But just because February 1 came, that didn't mean we could be relieved and that we could stop working because it never stops.

"We are already working for next season. We worked right through the last month and that will continue.

"Of course there will be some new players arriving and strengthening certain positions. But I don't think it's the moment to talk about the names."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
