We take it back! Is support for Darko Milanic starting to fall?

Leeds United 2

The opinion of Leeds United fans in relation to manager Darko Milanic appears to have changed.

Two weeks ago Twitter account LUFCpolls asked Leeds fans to vote on whether they thought head coach Darko Milanic would still be in the job at Christmas; those who voted said yes.

Two weeks later, with Leeds still searching for their first win under the new boss and the opinion has changed.

LUFCpolls put the exact same question to Leeds United fans after the defeat at Rotherham United and the vast majority said they didn’t think the Slovenian would still have a job by the festive period.

It’s been difficult for Milanic as he’s settled in, trying to find his best team and adapting to the different conditions and nature of English football.

It doesn’t get any easier for him because following the trip to Norwich earlier this week, which ended 1-1, Milanic now takes his side into a home game against high flying Wolves.

A negative result in the match this weekend and the crowd could start to get on him as Massimo Cellino starts to wonder whether he made the right choice after Neil Redfearn was allowed to go back to the academy setup.
