Thread: Anyone watching All or Nothing on Spurs?

    Anyone watching All or Nothing on Spurs?

    It's nearly all devoted to the time after Mourinho took over, but I'm quite enjoying it so far. There was full access to a very "frank" discussion between Mourinho and Danny Rose and, speaking as someone who is not a fan of his, I warmed to Mourinho somewhat to see him cut up about the death of his dog over Christmas last year.

    There is no doubt he builds a sense of ‘family’. He’s hard not to like when you see the human side of him, particularly when he’s smiling.

    Danny Rose came across as a prick in my opinion.

    It really is the Mourinho show though - doesn’t feel like there are many characters in that dressing room, unlike the Man City one where you got tons more insight into the players themselves. I’d hate to be stuck in a room with Harry Kane and have to make conversation. His team speeches are painful to watch.

    Enjoying it nevertheless. Anything like this is compulsive viewing for me

    That must be dog he brought to this country illegally by passing the vaccination arrangements and when the authorities knocked on his door to seize the dog he hid it. He was very close to the dog apparently.

    I'm enjoying it and, like you, have warmed a little to Jose.

    However, i definitely wouldn't enjoy it if I were a player at Spurs. I am sure being filmed having conversations with Jose isn't something I'd want everyone to see.. most players just stay silent and I wonder if it's because they are nervous and a little intimidated by knowing everyone is going to see the conversation. Not sure if it will foster trust between players and the manager.... I can only imagine players talking and saying "he's only behaving like that because the camera is rolling" etc.

    Interesting though.

    I seem to recall the previous Spurs manager didn't want this type of documentary of the club and him , guess it better fits Jose's narcissistic tendencies

    Another thing that was interesting was how Mourinho barely ever looked the physio in the eye when they were talking. I felt really sorry for the physio who was almost being treated witn contempt, but I suppose the club's physio is possibly the club employee you'd least like to talk as a manager.

    The documentary started when Pochettino was the manager though

    I read he didn't want it to happen though ,didn't want the exposure , perhaps he was overruled ?

    I have warmed to Mourinho but thought he was a funny bloke beforehand. Yes, he had his little moments where he comes across arrogant or bigheaded but this shows his human side.

    I'm enjoying it a lot and watch the new episodes straight away when they appear and regret it later wishing I'd strung them out a bit.

    I said much the same to my dad.

    He would be a member of staff you would need but very much the bearer of bad news in most instances as was the case most of the time he appeared.

    All or Nothing is a concept owned by the NFL. It’ll probably be tied to Tottenham’s relationship with the NFL and the number of games a year being played at the stadium.

    Roger Goodell the NFL commissioner was in episode 2 or 3 visiting Levy

    Yet to start on it yet but looking forward to this one.
    I do have a connection with Spurs as I went to school in the shadow of the old ground and, partly, grew up in Tottenham and Wood Green.
    Not so keen on the ‘Special One’ but it seems he is doing a good PR job on himself.
    One I finish Designated Survivor on Netflix this will be my next binge watch.

    I was thinking that about Kane’s speeches too, lame as, with a few f bombs thrown in at the end.

    I noticed that.

    Really really odd.

    I’m always wary of these series as they are carefully edited but I have been surprised at how uninspiring any of the team talks and 1:1 player meetings have been. (they team talks are worse than mine! 😋)

    I always look for some insight from these top managers that set them apart from the rest, but Mourinho’s meetings with players and team talks have been pretty banal leaving me wondering where and what are the magic ingredients that set him and other top class managers apart from others. I’d really love to know. Or maybe they just can’t show those parts 🤷*♂️

    Re: Anyone watching All or Nothing on Spurs?

    I watched a long interview (pert of a documentary) with Jose sometime ago when he talked at length about his career and what had achieved and how. He came across as quiet a modest person on a 1 to 1 basis. He gave credit to all he had done to Bobby Robson for teaching him having faith in him and encouraging him. He basically said 'without bobby I'd have been nothing'
    There was no attempt to say he was the greatest thing in football or anything like the media comments.
    He changed my opinion of him and I came round to thinking that under the brashness he was quite a nice guy

    Maybe but I imagine that's probably just a very convenient coincidence, Man City had an All or Nothing series so it's not like it's the first one. I imagine the fact its an opportunity to film Mourinho in big shiny new stadium were bigger factors.

    Its true , almost all of these behind the scenes programmes are about the trials and tribulations of the big clubs

    Now thats boring !

    Let's hear about football at the sharp end , 3000 gates on a rainy Tuesday night , Rochdale living in the shadow of man united and man City

    How they stay afloat on next to nothing

    Thats football , not a hugely overpaid team and their hugely overpaid manager

    You may be right although I suspect not

    Mate sunderland have a documentary if you want to watch how a small or shit club is run, it's a pure comedy.

    Sunderland are a huge club

    Rochdale , Bury ? That would open the eyes of what a struggling football club really goes through

    They are shit though.


    Fact is sludge no one cares about watching them. Have you watched league one or two football recently? It's ****ing awful most of the time, I for one could live a happy life with 0 attachment to those divisions ever again, nor do I care to watch a documentary about them.

    Re: Anyone watching All or Nothing on Spurs?

    Why do so many threads have to come around to how big a club is or isn't on here these days? The Sunderland documentary makes for very good television in my opinion because it is about a club going through a tough time and, human nature being what it is, I'd say people prefer to watch fly on the wall documentaries about clubs failing more than winning things. By their recent standards, Spurs' 19/20 season was a failure and, so far at least, it's something of a warts and all story of their campaign - what could have been a terrific series about Leeds' implosion in 18/19 was slightly ruined for me by the club having too much influence in what was shown to the extent that by the end of it, their bottle job was almost being seen as a triumph against the odds.

    The Sunderland ones were MUCH better than the highly polished Man City and Spurs series probably for the reasons that TOBW stated.
