As you can see, Gerhard Struber’s popularity as the Barnsley head coach has dramatically stopped over the last week. It is one of the biggest drops in popularity we have seen this week though his Net Approval Rating was so high before, he is still approved of. However, he is now nearing being disapproved of as the head coach so if he has a week of poor results, he may end up having a negative Net Approval Rating next week.
During the time this poll was taking responses, Barnsley drew 1-1 with Luton Town.
Below is the full net approval rating results since Week 1.
Week 1: +78
