Gus Poyet will revamp his squad during the January transfer window after admitting Albion have fallen short during the first half of the season.
The manager says performances have not translated into points so far and wants movement in and out in the New Year to change draws into victories.
The Seagulls are now officially the draw specialists of the Championship following Tuesday night's 2-2 comeback against Millwall at The Amex.
The halfway game of their campaign produced their tenth stalemate, one more than Nottingham Forest.
They have better players, especially at the back, but are only marginally better off than at the same stage last season, both in terms of points and position.
Poyet, delivering his mid-term report to The Argus, said: "We have done things to a level that have put us in a situation where we should be in a better situation in the league. It's not one game or two, we have already played more than 20.
"It's no more a coincidence, that's where we are. We need to move the squad, we need to make a few changes.
"Performance wise we have been much, much better than last year, I have no doubt about that.
"We have been better over 90 minutes than a big number of the teams we have played against. We've had two quite bad games (Blackpool and Millwall) and in those two games we got a point, which confirms football is not about what you deserve.
"The idea in the second part of the season is to turn those performances into victories and at the moment, because we are at halfway, I don't think it's a matter of doing it with the players that we have got right now. We need to change."
