I think there is a tendency to over inflate things, all the 3 years plan blah blah blah is pure fiction. The fact is we've got a manager that can attract the very best players and that's what's paned out and the results are there to see. If we had Silva in charge still we wouldn't have recruited James or Allan I can guarantee and they are the catalyst in this, alongside Carlo, not some 3 year plan in the making
Brands takes credit for getting the deals over the line at what seems to be a really good price and on reasonable contacts, which is really good. He also gets credit for any involvement in recruiting Carlo?
As others have alluded to I think his work starts now, if he's retained, and it's bringing through people like Godfrey, Nkounkou etc etc to supplement the players Carlo has identified.
Brands came in at a difficult time, but it's arguably even harder now due to the calibre of player required to make a difference, but good issues to have.
