Well said Hobbs.
Just put something into perspective, I have no problem with those making the case they want change, although I do tire of the wind up artists. But I do wish some of the naysayers would at least be logical (maybe actually read before they post) in their argument.
In press and on posts I see yet again KD is a failure because he spent too much money on players who have failed. But how does a 2-nil defeat at Newcastle prove that? Henderson, Adam did not play, and Downing only got a couple minutes. Carroll of course did, and he did make a bonehead decision going over in front of Krull, but then again he had incredible touch (he's not suppose to) and pace (he's suppose to be slow as an ox) to even get into the box in the first place.
Just to add some perspective here, this is the record of the first five years of another Scottish manager plying his trade in the North West of England.
A manager who had to face a team down the East Lancs road, who won trophies relentlessly and made his team look like a poor relation.

Give the guy some time, IMHO.
