The gold standard remains Channel 4's 1995 documentary Orient: Club for a Fiver, in which Leyton Orient's then manager, John Sitton, offered to fight two of his players in a peerless – if counterproductive – rant. We don't get profiles of hopeless clubs on the fuzzy end of the footballing lollipop, but of plutocrats' playthings – the Dallas Cowboys, Manchester City, the Philadelphia Eagles and now Tottenham Hotspur. It is only a few miles from Orient's humble Brisbane Road to Spurs' new £1bn Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with its microbreweries and season tickets priced at up to £2,233, but they are light years apart in terms of cash. Tom Hardy's surprisingly comprehensible narration tells us that Spurs had never recovered from losing to Liverpool in 2019's Champions League final. Spurs are 14th in the Premier League at the time of Pochettino's exit and words such as "relegation" and "dogfight" are being used by White Hart Lane futurologists.
So Daniel Levy, the club's chairman, sacks Pochettino and replaces him with the self-styled "Special One", José Mourinho. After all, Mourinho had been sacked from his two previous Premier League jobs and Pochettino's flair seemed destined to be neutered by Mourinho's utilitarian approach to the beautiful game. "Fuck off," says Mourinho crossly to the radio before heading off to the training ground to meet the players. "There must be something wrong with this team," Mourinho tells his new charges. And nice guys don't win the Premier League.
TOTTENHAM's explosive docuseries on Amazon Prime Video, All Or Nothing, has been released. The cameras will follow Spurs during their bombshell season last term which included Jose Mourinho taking the reins and moving to their £1billion brand new stadium. This series also delves into Spurs' new 62,000-seater stadium and the coronavirus lockdown. And even candid moments like Mourinho ordering his players to be a "bunch of c***s" have not been overlooked. All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur is narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hardy.
A new side to Mourinho? Does Mourinho play Football Manager? Does one of the most respected football managers of all time play... Besides, Mourinho wouldn't be the first person to have coached at Manchester United and had some sort of association with the game... The current United boss said in 2013: "It's a fantastic game, I have learned a lot about football. Don't wait 30 years - sign up for our daily football email newsletter today! The wait is over for Tottenham fans as the club's Amazon Prime documentary has finally been released. The 2020/21 Premier League campaign does not kick until September 12, but the streaming giants will provide their own brand of top-flight drama with the release of All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur. The highly-anticipated docu-series, which examines life on and off the pitch at the north London club, will be a welcome buffer between the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons. They have previously put a major Premier League club under the microscope, of course, with their 2018 project focusing on Manchester City's title-winning 2017/18 campaign. They have also followed the New Zealand All Blacks, the Brazilian national football team and several other NFL sides, including the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming release of the Spurs doc. The first three episodes of the Spurs doc will dropped onto Amazon on Monday, August 31, with the series set to launch in more than 200 countries worldwide. The series is set to feature behind-the-scenes footage of the Spurs home dressing room at their 62,000-seater stadium, which the club officially moved into in April 2019, as well as clips from training. A large portion of the series is expected to feature the building of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, where Spurs first played in April 2019. Pochettino was sacked in November and swiftly replaced by former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho. A two-minute trailer, released earlier this month, showed Mourinho's arrival at the club as well as the team dealing with injuries to key players including Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Another trailer also teased footage of Mourinho meeting the squad for the first time. The series will be available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Amazon Prime offers a wide range of football documentaries, including Take the Ball, Pass the Ball, an in-depth examination of Barcelona, and Take Us Home: Leeds United, which follows the West Yorkshire club through Marcelo Bielsa's first season in 2018/19. These football documentaries tend to boast an A-list narrator. Gracing the Tottenham series, however, is Tom Hardy, who was confirmed as the narrator earlier this month. In addition to dealing with Spurs' trials and tribulations on the pitch and the transitionary period following Mourinho's arrival, Tottenham have said that the documentary will shine a light on their efforts to help transform the local area and will also focus on the club's relationship with the NFL.
