I'm really not sure what you expected. Arteta to throw a few DDTs on Auba or rugby tackle while dressed only in a towel and baseball cap?
Again you didn't get my point. Go and see Spurs documentary or even city documentary or Juve's. Of course you won't throw your manager under the bus but you focus on the team in general but here the documentary is made to make arteta look credible. It's like Vince McMahon booking his favorite character. Game happens and you have arteta give his Pep esque speeches. I may be in minority but some of the stuff seem forced is my point. It is like the goal is let make sure Arteta comes looking good from this. Rest we don't care much.

And as I said it is a smart thing to do. Arteta needs backing by their own fans. You don't want to become a troll worthy guy aka Ole or Lampard. Arteta has a good PR behind him and hence I said now he has to walk the talk and bring CL football.

I am enjoying the documentary as I do with most of these type documentary. Although nothing beats Sunderland's documentary in Netflix. Brilliant viewing that was.

The worst part was the actual Premiere, Totally cringe worthy and embarrasing!

A movie about constant bottlers

With more Z listers on the red carpet than the Zombie movie Z

I probably shouldn't comment until I've watched them, but we are only 3 episodes in, and in previous series they tend to focus on an individual or 2 as a back story to run alongside the time line.

Perhaps when you watch all 8 episodes it fits better in the context? I certainly remember plenty of Jose & Levy in the Spurs documentary.

Watching these all or nothing documentaries really illuminates how basic top level football really can be. People like us on forums analyse everything to the nth degree, write dissertations about tactics and roles, people who watch games back and take screenshots to illustrate a point .... all for free in our own time and for passion of the game. And then you have these managers paid millions each year revealing some of their best work is this



Now obviously I realise there is much more to them than that. But it just shows that sometimes we can overestimate and overanalyse the game at the top as if the higher you go the basic principles of motivation, passion etc get removed. Football is not nuclear physics and it is nice to see the top managers + Arteta showing they are not immune from doing things that are done on sunday league pitches every week.

I highly doubt the most detailed analysis see the light of day as far as the cameras are concerned. If that happened opposition coaching staff would study it with a fine tooth comb.

When AVB was appointed as our manager one of his scout reports (for Jose 1.0) was leaked and it felt like reading a foreign language.

Show some respect son, those bottlers finished 11 points above your team. ;)

I quite enjoyed the first two episodes, but like all of them I get bored quite quick. Most of the stuff you would want to hear (tactics, training prep) etc is never included.

I don't think they illuminate anything at all. The editing is meticulous to focus on the most basic parts that will appeal to the masses, as highlighting too much of the coaching methods would be counter productive.

Spot on. I reckon that most fans probably won't find internal tactical and statistical analysis of games very interesting, and thus they try to show the emotional side way more than the detailed day-to-day work the staff goes through every day.

Interesting to see the away dressing room at Anfield with a bench in the middle of it that separates the team for the team talk. Clever.
