CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs has revealed that Amazon want to do an ‘All or Nothing’ documentary series with Newcastle United.
The Lowdown: ‘All or Nothing’ success
It has been reported that Chelsea are considering making an ‘All or Nothing’ documentary, after the popularity and success of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City’s own series.
Cameras captured City’s record-breaking 100-point season, followed Spurs throughout the initial COVID-hit summer of football, including the appointment of former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, and also showed the Gunners’ journey last season as they failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Supporters were able to see behind-the-scenes footage from match-days, training and key discussions at clubs, with some of the most controversial topics being filmed.
The Latest: Newcastle lined up
Taking to Twitter, Jacobs has revealed that Amazon now want to do a series with the St. James’ Park outfit, but the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) ‘have some reservations’ over a potential documentary:
“Amazon also want to do a series with Newcastle, which could well come first. But there is no agreement yet in place. PIF have some reservations and want guarantees there will be no anti-Saudi angle.”
The Verdict: Get it done
After the successes of the previous documentaries, the North East club should really consider making one of their own.
They recently celebrated their one-year anniversary since the Saudi consortium’s takeover on Tyneside, and the mood around the stadium has been lifted by the signings of big names like Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak, as well as them climbing up to sixth place in the Premier League table through some impressive performances.
Thus, it would be so interesting to know what exactly is going on behind-the-scenes in the new regime, and how much the owners are actually directly involved in helping the club get back to where they feel that they belong.
