Tottenham Perform In Front Of The Cameras




When you think of high drama, you usually think of a Hollywood blockbuster or an independent thriller to get you out of your seat and although the theatre of the football pitch creates its own plot lines, the beautiful game doesn’t necessarily translate to the big screen.

In the past, many a football themed film has been considered a huge miss and although the story of Santiago Munez in the first two parts of the ‘Goal’ trilogy bucked the trend somewhat, they are very much the exception rather than the rule.

Which is why the documentary format tends to mesh much better with football and instead of spending millions on trying to recreate golden moments, why not simply just capture the action as it unfolds?

This is a tactic that has been deployed by the streaming giants Netflix and Amazon, with the former having a great amount of success with the ‘Sunderland ‘Til I Die’ series that depicted the Black Cats fall out of the EFL Championship in 2017/18.

While of course, the latter has not been left behind when it comes to sporting documentaries and the delivery giant has signed up some of the biggest clubs to their critically acclaimed ‘All Or Nothing’ series.

A series that last year shone the spotlight on then Premier League champions Manchester City and the inner workings of legendary coach Pep Guardiola, while also taking a closer look at the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling.

Fast forward to October of 2019 and Amazon made another huge announcement in regard to this series and it is one that will see their cameras granted access to a fellow Premier League outfit, that being Tottenham Hotspur.

While they couldn’t have picked a better club in which to track during the 2019/20 season, as not only have they switched managers from Mauricio Pochettino to Jose Mourinho, but the North London outfit have had to suffer a litany of injuries woes.

When the series is released, viewers will be able to witness the fallout to the injury of Harry Kane and whether chairman Daniel Levy does finally open the purse strings, in order to source a suitable replacement for the England international.

Not only that but the cameras will be ready to see how Heung min-Son dealt with not just one but two red cards in just a handful matches and Tottenham fans will undoubtedly be keen to see more of the sending off away at Everton.

That was the game in which Andre Gomes suffered a distressing leg break and you could see just as much distress on the face of Son, as he walked off down the tunnel in tears – a scenario that will certainly make for interesting television.

Tottenham’s season has stuttered over the past few weeks and their hopes of returning to the Champions League are evaporating. However, if their new manager Jose Mourinho can somehow clinch a top four finish, then that will be an episode that Spurs fans will watch again and again.

When it comes to attention to detail within the previous examples of this series, Amazon leave absolutely nothing behind and therefore Tottenham or any other football fan for that matter, are going to be treated to another title winning masterpiece.
