All or Nothing: Arsenal watchseries. As a spurs fan,I cannot explain how exited I was to see the behind the scenes of how arsenal choked the top 4 in 4k. And mikel arteta's voice made it a thousand times better. And the best thing about this series was that they always portrayed like they are doing something, but in reality, they are just the best of the rest.
When a 25 year old fan says its the worst team he has seen in his short life, when people issue threats to Aaron Ramsdale, a young man in his 20's, when you see the energy the manager puts in and the passion that the players have you realise as a fan you think you know all but in reality you know nothing.The documentry gives a fantastic insight into the personal and mental challenges those within the club face.
A pretend manager, trying desperately to seem relevant and a team destined to fail. All B grade actors play their part, the highlight being the club photographer giving the team speech before a game. This is what satire has come down to. All or nothing, no one is surprised that it was nothing. Let's hope for humanity's sake there isn't a season two.
First of all, I want to emphasize, that I hate criticizing Football Managers, because everybody does it and their heads roll first. But that gets tossed out inflatory in the last years.Yes, this documentary is pretty close and also shows us the deep dive into how Arteta works and how the players work. How the pressure is on every matchday and even the drama is something, I don't mind. It is part of football and that is why I love it.The only thing, that really bugs me is the comparison to old times. Yes, they say that it was a different era. But not why. I think the series is keen on not to expose the new money from middle east asia coming in. As an example, they are saying, that arsenal paid 150 million quid in one transfer period in total... Bro, that's what Man city paid for one player only. So yes, Arsenal belongs to the top half. But in no way does it have the budget as it used to. The squad is nearly 300 million less valuable then the top teams in the League. Money does eventually win in the end. Unfortunately. And this is something, I want to see in the series as well.
Just a sad, sad, sad corporate video... Complete and utter nonsense. A shameful display of an over-edited, vacuous, anodyne, bleached narrative, corporate sanitised, faux drama, company pr video driven sielay of complete and utter nonsense.
