Chelsea it might be next Premier League club to appear in an Amazon series: All or Nothing after it was revealed the club’s American owners have expressed an ‘appetite’ to film.
Participating in a documentary-style series has become somewhat of a trend in recent years.
Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City have been put under the microscope in recent years, with cameras capturing behind-the-scenes footage of dressing room brawls and training ground moments.
And according to the Daily Mail, the lads at Amazon are trying to tempt Newcastle to allow their cameras to follow them for the 2023/24 season, although they have been cut.
Newcastle are believed to have already rejected several offers from other production companies. PIF also has some reservations and wants assurances that there will be no anti-Saudi angle.
But there are options elsewhere. According to the CBS reporter Ben Jacobssenior Amazon sources are positive that new American owner Todd Boehly would be interested in making it happen.
Under Roman Abramovich’s ownership, the club made it clear that he had absolutely no interest in turning up. But it seems that attitude has changed with Boehly and Eghbali as owners.
It will certainly be interesting to see how new manager Graham Potter fares after his strong start to life at Stamford Bridge.
See how social media reacted to the news.
One fan said: “As a neutral I don’t see a problem with it. They have cameras around them all the time anyway. It would be nice to see a club like Chelsea do it, especially with a new manager who seems to have longevity with him .”
Another wrote: “Never doubt when Boehly took over. This is going to be fun. Hopefully we can have a season like City’s when they did All or Nothing.”
A third commented: “That would be nice but I’m not backing the team to be affected by this, I don’t want it until I’m sure we have a team that can handle extra cameras.”
Arsenal’s appearance in an Amazon: All or Nothing series has produced some memorable moments, including the moment manager Mikel Arteta reached boiling point after the club’s shock FA Cup third-round defeat to Nottingham Forest last season.
In January, the Gunners were knocked out of the competition after suffering a shock 1-0 defeat to then-Championship side Nottingham Forest.
A late goal from substitute Lewis Grabban in the 83rd minute sealed a historic victory for the newly promoted side, who went on to play Leicester City in the fourth round.
But the headlines belonged to Arsenal after a dismal display. Mikel Arteta’s side failed to register a single shot on target throughout the match.
After the final whistle, the Spaniard did not hold back when he entered the dressing room.
“I accept losing guys, I accept losing. I don’t accept these standards, I tell you. I don’t accept, I don’t accept, these standards,” Arteta said, wagging his finger.
