Arsenal: All or Nothing – 3 reasons to watch Prime Video’s account of Arsenal’s 2021/22 campaign on and off the pitch
Arsenal's rollercoaster Premier League season is getting the All or Nothing treatment. From Arteta vs Klopp to Aubameyang's problems, here's why we can't wait to go behind the scenes at the Emirates.
Following the success of shows like Sunderland 'Til I Die and the previous Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City entries in Prime Video's All or Nothing series, Arsenal are the latest football club to allow cameras behind the scenes for an access-all-areas sports documentary.
The eight-part series - which already boasts an impressive 9.7/10 IMDB rating - promises to delve deeper into the larger-than-life personalities and lifestyles of Premier League footballers and staff by revealing behind-the-scenes moments and candid conversations from changing rooms, training camps, the manager's office and the boardroom.
Previous All or Nothing shows saw both fans and neutrals alike form a more personal connection to these superstars, and there’s no reason why Arsenal: All or Nothing will be any different.
Here are our three reasons to watch Arsenal: All or Nothing, coming to Prime Video on 4 August.
1. Relive the rollercoaster ride of Arsenal’s 2021/22 Premier League season
While Arsenal didn’t claim any silverware during the 2021/22 season, this could still be the most entertaining edition of All or Nothing to date.
After it was announced that the club would be allowing cameras behind closed doors for the season, Arsenal endured their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign, losing their opening three games.
But things soon picked up, and viewers will see expectations in and around the club change from merely picking up a win to taking an unlikely lead in the race for the coveted fourth Champions League spot.
2. Go behind the scenes of the Aubameyang transfer saga
One element of the season that Gunners fans, neutrals and rival supporters will be keen to follow is the saga surrounding the transfer - or not - of star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has no fear of standing up to star players, as shown with his previous very public exclusions of both Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi from the Arsenal squad.
We're hoping this new series will chronicle Arteta’s battle with Aubameyang ahead of his mid-season move to Barcelona, and analyse the rift this creates within the Arsenal setup.
3. Get to know Arsenal's heroes and villains
While most viewers will go into the series knowing the outcome of Arsenal’s season, the show promises to delve deeper into the personalities off the pitch, presenting the viewer with a new and fresh perspective on the players and staff.
The documentary will show the unsung heroes of the campaign, and might hint at as any potential hinderances to squad morale.
We can't wait to get a glimpse behind the scenes into the pantomime that is Premier League football.
Arsenal: All or Nothing begins with episodes 1-3 on Thursday 4 August. Episodes 4-6 follow on 11 August, with parts 7 & 8 completing the series on 18 August.
