Amazon's Manchester City docuseries gives you insider's view of club's record-breaking Premier League season
The eight-episode series 'All or Nothing: Manchester City' will take viewers on a journey back in time to the club's 2017-18 Premier League season
Amazon Prime Video has released the trailer for a new docu-series 'All or Nothing: Manchester City'. The eight-episode series will take viewers on a journey back in time to the club's record-breaking 2017-18 Premier League season. The series documents coach Pep Guardiola's inspirational talks, personal stories of the players, and candid off-field moments showing the team traveling and singing along to Oasis' 'Wonderwall' — which also serves as the background score of the trailer.
The trailer begins with manager Pep Guardiola giving a motivational speech to the players in the locker room, "Of course, I'm going to defend you until the last day of our lives in the press conferences. But here, I am going to tell you the truth. Today, I didn't see the desire to win. Today, I didn't see it. Some of you play better when you're angry with me so, if you hate me, hate me, guys, no problem at all."
Unlike the teaser which showed only a few behind-the-scenes glimpses into what goes to preparing the best players in the world, the trailer gives a more detailed look into the players' lives, their quest to win battles as a team, and Guardiola's undying spirit that keeps the team to its feet.
In the trailer, the players are seen training at the City Football Academy which is known to have some of the best training facilities in the world. There are interviews with the press, managers, boardroom conferences, and their day-to-day lives as internationally-acclaimed players. The docu-series is being narrated by veteran actor Sir Ben Kinsley and it seems that, in spite of its main focus being the team, it will certainly give an insight into the mind of the manager who would rather have his boys hate him and play well than suffer a loss at an international game.
Guardiola is known to have changed the face of the game ever since he took charge of the club in 2016 and, in spite of his triumphs at the Champions League and La Liga, he has always been focused on improving City from a seemingly disappointing first season. It has possibly been a difficult journey to replace the two-time title-winner, England goalkeeper, and a favorite of every football lover, Joe Hart.
BBC quotes City defender Danny Mills who claims that their title success was not a surprise. "I said all along Pep would get it right but that it would take him time. The Premier League is unlike any other league in the world with its sheer competitive nature that means bottom can beat top."
The title of the docu-series 'All or Nothing' suggests that it will focus on Guardiola's quest to cure an entire squad's weakness within a single season. Manchester City FC was crowned champions of Premier League after Manchester United lost to West Brom at 1-0. In spite of losing to United by 3-2 which delayed the confirmation of their victory by eight days, the club kept their ground and took the victory march after defeating West Ham by 1-4.
