Manchester United Winning The Premier League And Andy Tate Becoming Manager Have The Same Odds
Manchester United's current situation is so dire that odds for the club winning this year's Premier League are exactly the same as what you'd get if you took a punt on YouTube phenomenon Andy Tate getting the job.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have recorded just five wins in their last 23 games and their 1-0 defeat to Newcastle on Sunday leaves them just two points above the relegation zone after nine games.
The Norwegian won 12 out of his first 15 games in charge and guided the club into the Champions League quarter finals thanks to a remarkable last-gasp victory away at Paris Saint-Germain in March.
But that result in the French capital is actually the last time he and United have tasted victory on the road. It's just 17 points from the last 17 league games and after nine games this term, they are already 15 points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool going into the big game at Old Trafford.
A 100/1 bet for United to go down to the Championship is genuinely much better value than odds of 500/1 of them lifting a 14th Premier League title.
Also at 500/1 with Paddy Power is FullTimeDevils ranter Tate getting the United gig on a technicality of a legend who recommended him, which just about sums up the mess United are in at the moment.
According to the bookmaker, he is as likely to take the job on as Usain Bolt, John Terry and Neil Warnock are.

Die-hard red Andy is as straight-talking as they come and has a history of providing his honest thoughts on all things surrounding his club - memorably making his name with his scathing assessment of David Moyes during that wretched 2012/13 season.
Andy has worked regularly as a steward at Oldham Athletic but we all knew his true calling is to be United Gaffer, where he would undoubtedly bring that "Barca style of play" to life.
