Fan Produces Incredible Thread On How Premier League Managers Would Do On The Chase
| Last updated
How would Premier League managers fare if they were on The Chase? To our knowledge, none of the current coaches in the English top flight have appeared on the teatime ITV quiz show.
But that's all good because a fan on Twitter has used his imagination to put together a sensational Twitter thread on how they would get on.
Twitter user @ZG1999_ produced absolute gold and saw his masterpiece go viral as a result. He looked at 14 different managers in total and the level of detail he went into was simply incredible.

- Superb cash-builder of £12,000

- Very quiet in the Final Chase, but ends up pushing back the Chaser six times pic.twitter.com/01xsqgYejY
David Moyes— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021
- The typical “A just want ye back here to beat him” Scot they get on there
- Fair cash builder, and a fairly routine chase of £6,000
- Cracks a joke at the Governess’ expense, and falls flat
- Wins a respectable share of the £15,000 overall pic.twitter.com/1d10wnqzOp

- “it’s a complete guess Brad” on every single question
- Caught one from home, after a bright start, in getting 4 wrong on the bounce pic.twitter.com/W5BqNbk6RG
Thomas Tuchel— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021

- Weirdly similar to a previous contestant, punching the air and cracking jokes
- Takes the £66,000 higher offer because of the double six
- Wins the Final Chase on just 12 steps ‘unfashionably’ built on pop questions pic.twitter.com/poVhqTKmSu
Brendan Rodgers— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021
- The money is for the wife, and “maybe a games room”
- Flawless cash builder, £8,000 middle offer safely through
- Storms the first minute of the Final Chase with 16 correct answers, then gets just 1 right in the second minute
- Caught with 29 seconds left pic.twitter.com/2wwDRZaQPu
Sean Dyche— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021

- Pelters and daggers to anyone who takes the lower offer, especially the minus
- Shakes head furiously as the Chaser powers through 12 questions in a matter of seconds pic.twitter.com/NwvRHwcTop
Thomas Frank— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021

- Cash builder of £14,000, a new record

Ralph Hassenhuttl— Zak ⭐️⭐️ (@ZG1999_) November 1, 2021
- Middle offer, £5,000, no questions asked
- Done twice by the five second time pressure
- Gets the Bradley “it’s gotta be isn’t it?” questions wrong pic.twitter.com/1NkleCEQA1
And some of the points made are unbelievably accurate. The thread starts Pep Guardiola telling his team they are "so, so good" but ultimately overthinking and getting caught.
Then we have Daniel Farke of Norwich having an absolute stinker, Jurgen Klopp providing banter and fist pumps aplenty as well as giggling hysterically with host Bradley Walsh and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer smiling even in defeat.
The sentence about Graham Potter taking the middle offer as “it’s £12,000 more than I came in with” is an absolute gem.
Aston Villa boss Dean Smith uttering “it’s a complete guess Brad" for every question feels like something that would definitely happen, while we could absolutely see Thomas Tuchel winning the 'Final Chase' on just 12 steps thanks to his pop questions knowledge.
Just reading the thread makes us really want a Premier League celebrity special of The Chase.
Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful manager in the history of the Premier League, once appeared Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' alongside TV presenter and United fan Eamonn Holmes.
The Scotsman was doing well until the £64,000 question came around.
In the end Ferguson and Holmes had to settle for £32,000 but appeared on the show again in 2013, this time raising £50,000 for the Manchester United foundation.
