The much-anticipated All or Nothing: Arsenal documentary finally has a release date!
The story of the Gunner's rollercoaster 2021/22 season will drop on Amazon Prime on August 4th following the official release of the trailer on Tuesday.
The latest edition of the All Or Nothing series, which has spanned multiple sports including American football and rugby union, follows the success of the groundbreaking Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur versions which were released to acclaim from fans and critics alike, drawing in millions of viewers.
To get you in the mood for the latest instalment, we’ve delved into Amazon Prime’s sizeable catalogue of football documentaries to find the very best the beautiful game has to offer. We’ve only included those documentaries that are available on the Prime subscription, so providing you already have an account, you won’t have to spend a penny.
All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur
What better way to get ready for the Arsenal documentary than to go back and watch the same for their bitter north London rivals, Spurs?
Narrated by Tom Hardy, fans are granted full access to Tottenham Hotspur across the 2019/20 season - their first campaign in their new billion-pound stadium. It begins with Mauricio Pochettino in the hot seat, but the Argentine departs quickly and the whole thing quickly becomes The Jose Mourinho Show. And it is absolutely outstanding!
‘Senna’ director Asif Kapadia delivers a two-hour ride, taken from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage, and shows the stratospheric highs and devastating lows of Maradona’s glittering career. Educating, entertaining and insightful, this should be seen as the benchmark for any football documentary. Diego Maradona, just like the man himself when dazzling on the pitch, is blockbuster viewing.
Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager
A fitting title for a documentary on one of the greatest and most beloved managers this country has ever seen. Robson’s incredible life story is wonderfully illustrated by some of the biggest names in football today, from Guardiola to Gazza, all of whom were influenced by the legendary coach. The story of his time at England, Barcelona, Newcastle United and, in particular, Ipswich Town, whom he guided to FA Cup and UEFA Cup glory, is a must for any football fan.
Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In
A compelling look at the Premier League’s greatest ever manager, Sir Alex Ferguson. This documentary, directed by Ferguson’s son Jason and produced by BAFTA award-winner and Danny Boyle collaborator Andrew Macdonald, tells the story of the Scotsmans’s rise from his working class upbringing in Govan to becoming one of the most celebrated coaches of all-time. Ferguson’s story is one that is tailor-made for Hollywood and this documentary does an incredible job at telling the story of a man whose mark on the beautiful game will be felt forever.
As the first Asian footballer to score 50 Premier League goals and a Ballon d’Or nominee, there’s no denying that Son Heung-Min is one of the Premier League’s most popular imports right now. Sonsational, a South Korean documentary that was repackaged for Amazon Prime in January, shows us Son’s incredible journey from childhood to his first contract in Germany and then his subsequent move to Spurs.
It’s filled with highs and lows, but one of the most interesting takeaways from the entire thing is the brutal training regimes his father set out for him every day as a youngster. You’ll have a new respect for the South Korean superstar once you’ve finished this.
