If you compare the seniors to their peers then we can see that the gap is very large. I do not see the possibility of them ever closing that gap. In fact the gap is widening further as time go by. The window of opportunity is now closed for them. So lets move on.
With the Juniors, Mal/Sing shows they are still within fighting distance. If we focus on this group and avoid making the same mistakes then we may yet have that GM. That means pouring in all available resources we now have towards their development. Not waiting for the "miracle" GM coach to appear before we can take action. This waiting business is one of our mistakes. Our previous thinking was wrong. The results show that.
... if we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything is ready, we shall never begin.
