Twitter Reacts to Neil Warnock’s sacking

Newcastle United v Crystal Palace - Barclays Premier League

On Saturday, Crystal Palace sacked manager Neil Warnock four months after appointing him at the start of the season. The Eagles had lost 3-1 to Southampton the day before and sat in the relegation zone. Keith Millen took charge for yesterday’s game with QPR, but how did the Twittersphere react to the firing of Warnock, and who is rumoured to be taking over?

Not many fans were arguing with the decision of the club’s board, and were pleased with the sacking…

It’s not surprising either, as Warnock failed to improve his poor record in England’s top division…

Add to those statistics this fact, and it does make his appointment a strange one…

Palace were the first ever Premier League club to appoint him, but maybe the former Leeds boss should stick to the Championship…

Alan Pardew has been Newcastle manager since December 2010. Palace’s managers on the other hand…

The Magpies boss is the odds on favourite to replace Warnock, but with his side 9th and Palace 18th, why is he so keen to switch?

Tony Pulis, who left Selhurst Park by mutual consent just before the start of the season after guiding them to 11th in 2013-14, seems the favourite with fans. It’s unlikely though.

Former Palace defender Tony Popovic is also being linked with the job, but does not have much managerial experience.

Meanwhile, people are drawing comparisons between former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood and Warnock. But would this make him a good replacement?

Let’s end on a high note. Something for Warnock to cheer about at least…
