It's all about next season isn't it ?.

It's strange at this level. How does a new manager prepare for next season down here?
Even with the £££££ available at clubs like Hemel & Ricay there will be few players on contracts that run beyond the current season.
The notion that any youth set-up can be improved to link smoothly to the 1st XI is daft. The gap's too wide now, even down here.
So what does a new man do for a dozen games in spring?
Given his budgets at Hemel & Ricay, it's fair to say Brennan would have been seen as way out of Isthmian Premier price range a month ago.
Getting promotion-calibre players to commit for 19/20 at this stage will necessitate paying over the odds. Those players - & their agents - will be hopeful of beefy contracts somewhere when the usual smattering of "ambitious" businessmen / spivs / fraudsters / idiots (delete as you see fit) "invest" in a few Step Three southeast clubs in the coming months.
Most of this season's squad will be away by August.
A new man can do no more than run his eye over the current playing staff, trying to decide which are good enough and likely to fit into his style of play.
He can also make phone calls to players he fancies. Given Brennan's previous two gigs, I'd be worried if the Club were to "invest" in players who command the salaries paid by Hemel & Ricay. Last summer's arrivals were worryingly expensive.
He's got the gig, but the time to judge him is from August, not now.
