The difference between Brands and his predecessor is as night and day.
From last season we've lost Gueye and Zouma from first XI but gained Gomes ( permanent ) Gbamin, Iwobi, Delph, Lossl, Kean and Sidibe on loan.
There are options all over the park, differing set ups and formations potentially, competition for places, versatility from Gbamin and Delph, added to an already decent attacking mix with Bernard, Sigurdsson and Richarlison.
If Gbamin has to play CB then we could put Schneiderlin in, Sidibe can cover and rival Coleman and Baines has another season to cover Digne.
As others have said Brands is the most important signing in recent years, everything he does instills confidence in me and his track record previously confirms how good he is
