Say what you like about the morally ambiguous, allegedly exploitative decision-makers at Amazon – but they know a football story when they see it.
When he chose to make a documentary on Manchester City in 2017, it just so happened that Pep Guardiola’s side registered a league record 100 points, won the Premier League by a league record margin and were generally the best in English football. One of the teams. have you ever seen.
When they chose to make a documentary on Tottenham Hotspur last year, they were probably hoping for a similar success story. As it happens, they’ve struck gold…but for an entirely different reason.
That’s because the Spurs have been an absolute mess. The documentary, reportedly set for a late release, promises to be less all or nothing: Tottenham Hotspur and more Tottenham ’til I die, looking at what has happened at the club since the summer. Is.
Tottenham’s much-talked-about Amazon documentary is coming our way.
It might be called ‘Seconds From Disaster’ and be on the Discovery Channel, but we’ll all see it https://t.co/CMUplx3ewQ

Just this week we have Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min fighting on the pitch during the 1-0 victory over Everton.
Amazon cameras filmed the clash between Heung-min Son and Hugo Lloris at half-time, which continued in the players’ tunnel, and will feature the incident in the documentary, All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur. | @TimesSport

What happened there?!? ?
Hugo Lloris and Son Heung-min have to be separated from their teammates as they walk off the pitch at half-time! ?

…This was followed by a hilariously awful 0-0 draw with Bournemouth, with Spurs saved from defeat by a dramatic VAR decision. Mourinho’s side was bad in this. So bad that they prompted him to exit the interview early.

There have been 173 shots on target against Bournemouth this season. Tottenham had none of those today.

Going a bit further, we got Eric Dier into the stands to confront a fan, during the 7-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich – probably not what Prime Video executives pictured. When he signed the last film. Finalists of the season.

Of course, none of this will be a major selling point. the dramatic sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, followed almost 30 seconds later by the appointment of José Mourinho; This will put another billion rupees in the pocket of Jeff Bezos himself.

You have to feel for Spurs fans on this one, but hey – after embarrassingly exiting both domestic cups this season, at least they can finally win a trophy.
Amazon’s documentary on Tottenham’s season is set to win an Oscar.

As for the rest of us, it’s been a rough year. Amazon’s latest offering gives us something to look forward to, and for that we should be thankful…
The best thing to come out of this goddamn year is likely to be an Amazon Tottenham documentary.
