'Dislikes' spread for Magath
Schalke 04 coach Felix Magath seems to have failed in his Facebook charm offensive after Royal Blues fans gave him the thumbs down during their 1-1 German league draw with Nuremberg.
Earlier this month, Magath reached out to Schalke fans by setting up a Facebook page to try and win over supporters upset at what they perceive to be Magath's dictatorial style and his transfer policy.
In a little over a fortnight, Magath has collected more than 140,000 friends, who have clicked the 'like' -- thumbs up icon -- on the social-networking website to show their approval for the Schalke boss.
But after his side were held at home by resurgent Nuremberg, hardcore fans held up a banner at Gelsenkirchen's Veltins Arena saying: "Felix: we don't like you any more" next to a large picture of a down-turned thumb.
To reinforce their message, home fans chanted it during the second half.
