Amazon has made a hit ‘All or Nothing’ series of documentaries about Manchester City and Tottenam Hotspur that have proved fan hits, and the video makers have now moved to another north London club in documenting the Gunners failed to finish in the top four of the 2021/22 Premier League season.

Arsenal and Spurs had a hard-fought battle last season, with both swapping places.

Ultimately, however, it was Spurs who prevailed and finished fourth in the Premier League and secured the last spot available for the 2022/23 Champions League tournament.

The first episode was released last week and fans will look forward to the second part of the dramatic season today.

What was in the first episode?

The first episode was chock-full of drama, as one would expect from Amazon’s All or Nothing documentary, and focused on five main areas.

The first focused on the racist abuse Bukayo Saka faced after the Euro 2020 final. The youngster said: “I used to be able to just do normal things but I can’t really do them anymore.” He was bullied by staff outside Waitrose, telling teammates Emile Smith Rowe and Folarin Balogun: “Bro I had my hood on , my mask like this (just below his eyeballs). I don’t know what else I can do.”

The second area revolved around “Silent Stan” and Josh Kroenke. While Arteta enjoyed plenty of screen time, the first episode also introduced Josh Kroenke, a director on the club’s board and the son of the Gunner’s unpopular owner, “Silent Stan.”

The argument between Aubameyang and Arteta is to be shown in the new documentary

The first episode also featured Arteta’s pre-match talks with fans and featured the club’s photographer. Granit Xhaka calls his manager a “freak” before saying “but positively” due to his attention to detail.

We also have a glimpse of the start of the dispute between Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Arteta, as Aubameyang appears to be teasing his manager.

The fourth area that the first episode covers revolves around Arteta’s conversation leading up to signing Aaron Ramsdale, while the fifth area looks at Kieran Tierney’s openness about his mental health.

Tierney joined Arsenal from Celtic in 2019 and revealed he was ‘really struggling’ and suffering from ‘terrible’ homesickness the first time he made the move from Glasgow to London.

He also touches on difficult topics such as male suicide and explains how it affected him personally.

Aubameyang and Arteta had a strained relationship ahead of Christmas, which culminated in the Gabonese international joining La Liga’s Barcelona in the January transfer window.

England international Bukayo Saka is expected to be another key part of the documentary after playing a strong tournament at last summer’s Euro 2020.

Fans, club legends, football pundits and members of the club hierarchy will also be present in the documentary to give their analysis and opinions on what has been a very turbulent season.

What happens in the documentary?

As well as documenting Arsenal’s battle for the last place in the Premier League’s top four, ‘All or Nothing’ also charts the aftermath and reactions to the Gunners’ first bid for the proposed European Super League – the breakaway league for Europe’s elite – Clubs.

The Gunners’ triumph in September’s North London Derby should also be taken into account, as should their victories over Chelsea and Manchester United.

Even more depressing for Arsenal fans, however, is that they will be watching their meltdown at the end of the season in which Spurs knocked them down to fourth place.

Fans will also be watching the row between Aubameyang and Arteta after the Gabonese striker broke disciplinary rules in his final weeks at the Emirates Stadium.
