Former Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City forward Rodney Marsh has taken to social networking site Twitter to have his say on the current situation at Newcastle United.
Newcastle are in real danger of suffering relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.
The Magpies have lost their last eight league matches and are just two points above the bottom three in the league standings at the moment.
Despite the poor run of results, head coach John Carver will remain in charge of the team for the remainder of the season, as announced on the club’s official website on Monday.
Marsh is surprised that Carver has not been sacked today, having predicted Newcastle to dismiss him after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium (click here to read more).
The former England international has also mocked the Newcastle fans for staging protests against Alan Pardew earlier in the season.
Amazed John Carver still Newcastle manager -Next game should be a pantomime.....— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) May 4, 2015
Newcastle fans demonstrated to get Pardew out. Be careful what you wish for eh?— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) May 4, 2015
Pardew left Newcastle and was appointed the Crystal Palace manager in January, and since then the Magpies have slipped down the Premier League table.
The Newcastle fans did not like Pardew’s style of football and did not agree with many of his decisions, but under Carver the team have gone downhill in terms of results.
If Pardew were in charge now, at least the Magpies would not be looking over their shoulders with just three more rounds of matches left.
