Thomas Frank’s popularity as Brentford head coach has surprisingly dropped this week.

As you can see, Thomas Frank’s popularity as the Brentford head coach has dropped over the last week. Usually, when someone’s popularity either goes up or down, we’ll have a good reason as to why that has happened. For this, we have no idea how a large enough swing that could not be written as within the margin of error could happen. Brentford are still in top form and could get automatically promoted if results go in their way. But this is what has happened and you do expect things to change in the opposite direction next week.
