You got that right!!

But The System as an excuse was trotted out many times as reasons why the team was playing like ****.

Last season's turn around as I recall. Earlier this season on the dump and chase comment.

I gave up trying to figure out what it actually was (transition turnover counter attack was the best I ever came up with) 'cause it seemed to morph based on the team's performance.

Good riddance!
