Former Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City forward Rodney Marsh has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Everton are a shambles.
Interestingly, Marsh has included Everton in the same bracket as Leeds United, Newcastle United and Aston Villa.
Sad to see huge clubs turning into shambles, Leeds, Newcastle, Aston Villa, Everton etc.....— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) March 5, 2016
For the past 20 years Everton fans have been saying they're only a good manager away from being Top 5 team........ok— Rodney Marsh (@RodneyMarsh10) March 5, 2016
While one can understand why Marsh - or anyone else for that matter - would consider Leeds, Newcastle and Villa as shambles, it is hard to see how Everton fall into that category.
Newcastle and Villa are in the Premier League relegation zone at the moment, and could get relegated at the end of the season.
Everton are doing much better than the aforementioned three clubs and could finish in the top half of the Premier League this season.
True, under manager Roberto Martinez, the Toffees have not progressed as fans would have wanted their team to, but they are in a much better shape than Leeds, Newcastle and Villa are.
