Quick Bit: Arsenal are about to join Manchester City and Tottenham in featuring in an All or Nothing documentary. What is the series all about and how can you watch it?
Even though parts of it are likely to play out like a horror movie, Arsenal fans are eagerly anticipating their turn in an All or Nothing documentary portraying the club’s fortunes during the 2021/22 Premier League season.
In a trailer released for the eight-part series, manager Mikel Arteta can be seen in contemplative mood while fans call for his head during the early part of the campaign, as well as giving a motivational speech to his players in the dressing room.
Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale can be seen venting his frustration inside the Gunners’ inner sanctum, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the club’s ex-captain and a former Premier League golden boot sharer, also features before his move to Barcelona in January.
What’s been said about the documentary? When will supporters be able to see it? Here’s what to look out for.

What is ‘Arsenal: All or Nothing’ documentary?
The hit documentary series provides a glimpse behind the scenes at top sports clubs around the world.
NFL, college football, rugby union, and ice hockey teams have previously been the focus for the documentaries, and Manchester City were the first football team to take part, in 2018.
The dramatic documentary on City provided the kind of angle on Pep Guardiola and his galaxy of stars that fans rarely see in press conferences and interviews, achieving instant popularity.
Tottenham featured in 2020, when the innately theatrical Jose Mourinho proved blockbuster as the cameras followed his time as Spurs boss.
Arsenal’s edition is produced by 72 Films and executive produced by Mark Raphael, Clare Cameron and three-time BAFTA winner John Douglas, screening in 240 countries.
The film crew may not have been able to believe their luck as Arsenal’s season began and ended in fraught fashion.
In the clips released so far, rookie coach Arteta can be seen ruminating when his team find themselves bottom of the Premier League after a dismal first three games of the season, losing 2-0 to relegation favourites Brentford, London rivals Chelsea and, most humiliatingly, 5-0 at Manchester City.
Arteta eventually hauled his youthful squad into Champions League contention, only for a dire 3-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in their penultimate away game of the season to change the momentum against the most unwanted of opposition.
Had Arsenal won at Tottenham, they would have secured a top-four finish and ended their neighbours’ chances of overtaking them on their own turf.
As it was, a limp subsequent defeat at resurgent Newcastle gave Spurs a chance they took to secure Champions League football, condemning Arsenal to fifth place and the Europa League.
All of which, along with flashpoints such as Aubameyang’s abrupt departure, should make for a worthy addition to the series.
