The producers of All or Nothing would have struggled to dream up a more dramatic season when Arsenal were announced as the latest centrepiece of the documentary last year.
Knowing that Amazon leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of entertainment, All or Nothing: Arsenal could well be the most explosive series to date, and fans are – justifiably – waiting with baited breath ahead of the August 4 release date.

If the previous editions at Manchester City, Juventus and Spurs are anything to go by, spectators can expect to see a glut of explosive arguments, a rich supply of post-match rants and the odd embarrassing dressing room team talk.
Sportsmail have reviewed the most memorable moments from All or Nothing so far ahead of the upcoming documentary at the Emirates.
Kane’s sweary speech
England captain and Spurs leader Harry Kane no doubt inspires his team with his performances on the pitch. That much is clear.
But ahead of Spurs’ must-win Champions League clash with Olympiacos, viewers were graced with an opportunity to witness true leadership at work – a glimpse at Kane’s pre-match team talk.
Starters, substitutes, coaches, kit men – and a surfeit of other general staff members – huddled together to hear the pre-match battle-cry in anticipation, but what followed was frankly an incoherent babbling of profanities.
Fans will remember Harry Kane’s hilariously bad team talk for Spurs during the documentary
Although repetitive, Kane held his composure at the start: ‘At the moment, they have a little bit of hope, they have a little bit of hope to qualify.’
But, as words escaped him, the speech quickly escalated into blathering mess – and was over within seconds.
He continued: ‘We kill that minute one, we press, we aggressive, f***ing chances, goals, and we f***ing kill ’em man, we f***ing qualify today lads, we f***ing qualify.’
Although a wild roar of cheers eclipsed Kane as he began to tail off his speech, Tottenham took to the pitch and were 2-0 down after 19 minutes.
Rose vs. Mourinho
During the fifth episode of All or Nothing: Spurs, then manager Jose Mourinho held a heated confrontation with left-back and ex-England international Danny Rose, who had just been dropped from the first team.
Following Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking in November, Rose started just once under Mourinho before taking on a loan spell at Newcastle in January.
His only start came during Spurs’ 1-0 defeat to Liverpool, and the defender was subsequently axed from the squad against Watford and Norwich before heading up north.

Rose called a meeting with Mourinho and cut a frustrated figure during the exchange.
‘If you don’t want me to play, I’d rather you just tell me now,’ he said. ‘I’ll stay at home and I’ll train at home.
The Portuguese boss and defender Danny Rose had a heated meeting about play-time
‘I respect what you’re saying in that I didn’t play well vs Liverpool, which is true. I play one game every four weeks.
‘Do you want me to be man of the match and give my best performance when I play one game and then I don’t play again for three or four weeks?
‘Oher people have been s*** in training, s*** in games, but are in the squad every game. It’s not fair.’
Mourinho interrupted Rose to defend his decision, saying that it was simply the left-back’s perspective on the matter.
Rose then threatened to take things further with chairman Daniel Levy and later enquired about the possibility of joining AC Milan – an effort which was ultimately shot down.
Delph’s ‘basics of football’
Even during Manchester City’s history-making 100-point campaign in 2017-18, fans were exposed to moments of disappointment within the Etihad camp.
And it brought one of the highlights of the season as utility player Fabian Delph delivered an impassioned rant about the ‘basics of football’.

Despite sweeping the league by 19 points, the champions lost twice to rivals Manchester United, with the second defeat coming at home on April 7.
Pep Guardiola’s side squandered a 2-0 half-time advantage to lose 3-2 in the second 45 minutes, which sparked a vehement post-match investigation in the City dressing room.
Club captain Vincent Kompany was first to address the squad and was followed by veteran Yaya Toure, who said that defeat was a result of fatigue.
Delph, who could be heard blurting out expletives on the way into the dressing room, loudly disagreed and ignited an argument between him and the ex-Ivory Coast international.
‘F****** tired?’ he said. ‘It’s simple, it’s straightforward. We stopped f****** running in the second half.’
As the dispute escalated, Guardiola told the team-mates to ‘shut up’ and later claimed that Delph’s concerns were ‘bull****’.

The now-Everton midfielder then interrupted his manager to voice a rant about the ‘basics of football’.
Delph was primarily filling in at left-back for the injured Benjamin Mendy during the 2017-18 season and had missed the previous eight league matches before the defeat to United.
‘I’m not blaming anyone, it’s just the basics of football,’ he said. ‘When things go against us and everybody drops their head, just remember the basics.
He interrupted Pep Guardiola to deliver an impassioned speech about the ‘basics of football’
‘Winning our individual battles, sticking together as a unit, f****** defenders defending, midfielders box to box, f****** keepers. Just the basics of football.
‘When we go behind, or something comes against us, we freeze. When something goes against us, think of the basics of football.’
Delph went on to record just eight Premier League starts in the following season, before leaving on a free transfer to Everton in 2019.
‘Lazy’ Dele Alli
Since All or Nothing: Spurs aired in 2020, Dele Alli’s career has been in free fall.
Exiled on a free transfer to Everton in January and miles off Gareth Southgate’s England plans ahead of the World Cup in November, the 26-year-old has struggled to find anything close to the form he once displayed under Mauricio Pochettino.
In hindsight, Mourinho labelling Alli as a ‘lazy guy’ during his early moments in north London could have been the first unfortunate domino to fall.
As the ex-Spurs boss gathered his troops in the tactics room ahead of his first match in charge against West Ham, the squad were waiting to hear which eleven players had made the starting line-up.

Although Alli made the initial cut, he was made an example of by Mourinho after training footage was revealed to the squad.
Pausing the video, the Portuguese manager exposed Alli’s lethargic training ground habits.
He said: ‘Okay, I understood already, where’s Dele? I understood already that you are a f***ing lazy guy in training.’
The attacking midfielder responded with a smile but struggled to perform under Mourinho – scoring just twice in his remaining 12 appearances of the season – and was subsequently dropped during the following campaign.
During Juventus’ All or Nothing series, which followed the Italian giants’ 2020-21 season under newly-appointed boss Andrea Pirlo, Cristiano Ronaldo had a heated altercation with team-mate Juan Cuadrado.
The star forward unleashed a half-time outrage during Juventus’ Champions League clash against Porto.
‘We have to work harder,’ shouted Ronaldo. ‘What the f***! We didn’t play at all! Nothing!’
Cuadrado then intervened by telling the five-time Champions League winner to calm down, to which Ronaldo responded: ‘We played s***, always!’

The Colombian international added: ‘You must be an example for everyone.’
‘I’m included too,’ the striker said. ‘We have to tell each other the truth, we played s***.
‘This is a Champions League match, we need to have personality.’
Juventus eventually suffered a shock defeat on away goals, ending Ronaldo’s last opportunity to lift the Champions League trophy with Juventus before he returned to Manchester United in the summer.
