those acquisitions haven't been a step forward though. you'd have to admit that at this point. the team isn't any better.

we can have our opinions that the team might look better on paper, or might eventually get better, but the fact is it hasn't yet happened. there hasn't been that actual step forward.

any guess as to when it might come?

Well Ken Holland(isn't he the best?) says it takes 10yrs to see results so why not sit back, quit *****ing, and let the man do his job for at least a few more years.
i see a double standard here.

its ok to applaud the acquisitions you feel are good ones, without giving him 10 years to actually see what happens, yet its not ok to criticize the moves we feel are poor ones until 10 years have expired?

sitting back and letting him do his job for 10 years....shouldn't that include not praising any of these transactions until the 10 year time period is upon us? shouldn't we wait to see the results?
