As you can see, Slaven Bilic’s popularity as the West Bromwich Albion head coach has dropped this week. Last week, we said it would be interesting to see if Bilic’s Net Approval Ratings would become more stable or if it would remain volatile until the end of the season. It appears that the answer is going to be that it remains volatile as his popularity took a steep drop this week. If his popularity rises in the final Week 5 next week, he’ll have zig-zagged throughout the entirety of this series.
Below is the full net approval rating results since Week 1.
Week 1: +94
Week 2: +47
Week 3: +83
Week 4: +54
