Kanye West Naming His Next Child Jesus Is More Likely Than Burton Albion Beating Manchester City Tonight
Nigel Clough’s Burton Albion will have watched Manchester City’s 7-0 demolition job of Rotherham in the FA Cup last time out and understood, if they hadn’t already, the size of task that lies ahead for them in tonight’s League Cup semi-final against Pep Guardiola’s side.
The Brewers face, according to the layers, one of the stiffest assignments you’re ever likely to see in footballing terms as they try and tame the Premier League champions and keep their Wembley dream alive for another day.
Clough’s side are as big as 70-1 to pull off a famous upset - here’s a list of things that are more likely than that in the eyes of the bookies off the back of that.
There’s more chance of Margaret Thatcher getting her chops on the face of the new £50 note, a 50-1 shot.
Both ex-1D star Harry Styles and Megan Fox are each more likely to become the next James Bond than Clough’s men are to come out victorious at the Etihad this evening.
Looking across the Atlantic, where anything is possible, and it’s more likely that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West name their next child Jesus (20-1) or Donald - presumably after the big man himself - which is in at the 14-1.
Rod Stewart, whose best recent performance was when he was picking balls out of the hat for the 5th Round Draw of the Scottish Cup, is a 33-1 shot to reel in the years and headline Glastonbury this summer, another eventuality that is more likely than Burton getting the win later on tonight.
But, of course, anything is possible.
