I'm right at the top of the list of people who want John McLaren to go away, but it's not his fault everybody on this team simultaneously forgot how to perform. Unless you believe that a different manager would've been able to light a fire under these lifeless assbags, this slump (although maybe 1-8 or 2-7 instead of 0-9) could've happened to anyone. John McLaren sucks because of his philosophies, not because of his results.

I suppose this is another one of our make-or-break series. Because we've done so well in all the previous ones. Let's just get this over with and move on with our lives.
