The latest series of All or Nothing in the UK is set to feature Arsenal Football Club during their 2021/22 campaign in the Premier League.
In what is part of the popular sports docuseries, which has already gone behind the scenes at some of the biggest sports teams and countries in the world, All or Nothing is sure to capture some captivating coverage.
Arsenal could only finish eighth in the Premier League table last season. It means the pressure is on manager Mikel Arteta to deliver in the 2021/22 campaign. If they get off to a bad start, it may lead to the end of the Spaniard’s reign in North London.
The Gunners are joint-sixth favourites in the English Premier League odds to win the title, alongside bitter North-London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. Bookmakers don’t rate their chances of finishing in the top four too highly, either. This shows just how tough of a job Arteta has on his hands this season.
Despite their poor recent form, Arsenal do have some talented players. Striker and club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang won the Golden Boot in 2019, the award handed to the player who scores the most goals in a Premier League campaign. They also have former Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, a player they did well to capture last October.
Personal Stories Also Accounted For
You don’t have to be a big football fan to enjoy the All or Nothing docuseries. They also include a lot of personal stories and show what players get up to outside of football.
It is always interesting to see what a professional sportsperson gets up to in their free time and how they balance their time between their career and their family. We also see that players don’t always get on with the squad.
Arsenal also have a lot of foreign players in their squad so the series is sure to document how they have adapted to life in England. Many arrive from very different cultures so some find it challenging in the early stages of their move.
Great Insight into Financial Side of a Premier League Club
During the most recent All or Nothing Series involving a Premier League club, we got a great insight from the chairman at Tottenham on how the finances are managed; contract negotiations, major transfers, and other costs involved are all touched upon.
As you can imagine with such huge sports organisations, there are some gigantic contracts to negotiate. Not just with players and coaching staff, but also sponsors and partners who are all on the same journey with the football club.
It gets very interesting when players try to force a move away. Often there is a stalemate between the club and player. This can go all the way down to the final minutes of the transfer window before one of the two parties budges from their stance.
We do have to wait until next year until we see what the All or Nothing team have filmed. Before then, keep an eye on Arsenal’s results as it will give you a flavour of what you can expect when the programme is released in 2022.
