Re: I think the style will have to fit the players to a degree for now
I suspect that your 'couple of additions' may be a little inaccurate. If they can be, I suspect that a good number will be shifted out and 4 or 5 new signings brought in to compliment the remaining squad members and the fringe Academy players.
We can't overhaul the squad to fill it with players who suit a particular style. The budget isn't there.
This is the damage that Koeman/Walsh wrought. They were given free rein to offload all Martinez's signings and spend hundreds of millions on their own choices. It won't happen again
Silva will just have to get a tune out of his favoured 25 of the current squad, albeit with I suspect a couple of additions. If he can't do it, then Brands will find someone else.
I'm looking forward to a team that values possession and is confident going forward. He has a lot of good young talent to work with, but also some excellent experienced players who I hope will relish playing under him
