Keiron Cunningham has been sacked by St Helens
The Saints were 14 points up over struggling Huddersfield on Saturday – only for them to draw the game 14-14.
The point leaves them seventh in the Super League table, seven points adrift of leaders Castleford Tigers.
But it's the manner of St Helens' performance that have really irked the St Helens faithful.
They have offered little going forward and have an average of only 17 points across the first eight matches.
St Helens announced Cunningham's departure in a club statement this morning, which read: "Keiron has been with the club for 24 years as man, boy, player and coach.
Keiron Cunningham is a legend at St Helens
"The commitment that he has shown to the club throughout, and in every capacity, has been without equal.
"It is both upsetting and disappointing for us all that it has ended at this point in time. Keiron nevertheless understands the position and, as a mark of the man that he is, wishes only well and good to the club, its players and everyone associated with it.
"His statue outside the ground is a deserved reflection of his immense contribution to the club. That is clear, obvious and permanent.
"We will now look to move the club forward and will immediately commence the search for a new head coach.
"St Helens is a world class club with a great squad of players and its only objective will be continuous success at the highest level."
Assistant coaches Sean Long and Jamahl Lolesi will be joined by under-19s coach Derek Traynor to form an interim coaching team.

Cunningham signed for St Helens as a player in October 1993 and made his first-team debut against Warrington the following August.
He won every possible honour in the game with the Saints in a glittering 496-game career – leading to the statue at the club.
He retired in 2010 and joined the backroom staff at the Saints as assistant strength and conditioning coach. He then became assistant to acting head cach Mike Rush in 2012.
In 2014 he served under Nathan Brown, whose side went on to win the League Leaders' Shield and Grand Final.
He leaves having been head coach for 76 games, including two Super League and one Challenge Cup semi-finals.
