Arsenal training ground bust-up & Arteta’s three non-negotiables revealed in full Amazon trailer

The documentary has had behind-the-scenes access to one of the most turbulent seasons in Arsenal history and the full trailer has been released

The full trailer for the All or Nothing: Arsenal documentary has been released, building even more anticipation for when episodes drop on Amazon Prime Video in early August.

Last month after it was confirmed that the episodes would start streaming on August 4, there was a 24-second teaser trailer to accompany the announcement, and it included Mikel Arteta’s rallying cry, a subtle dig at former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsdale’s outburst and some dressing room celebrations.

But that was merely a drop in the ocean in comparison to what insight the full trailer has provided for Arsenal supporters. Now, this documentary was always bound to make fascinating viewing when factoring in just how close they came to Champions League qualification. Yet, this fresh 1.46-minute video will only increase the level of anticipation.

Perhaps the biggest talking point is the whole Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang saga gets covered in greater detail as Arteta can be seen explaining the decision to strip the striker of the captaincy to the squad. The camera immediately cuts to Alexandre Lacazette, who says, “Wow”, and the former Gunners skipper driving off.

Given how close the pair were at Arsenal, there has been intrigue about how Lacazette would react to the treatment of his friend, and it would appear that this documentary will delve into that.

Sticking with the Frenchman, he can be seen throwing something in anger in the dressing room and also breaking up a training ground scuffle. It’s not clear who was involved, but Arteta, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Bernd Leno and Gabriel Martinelli appear to be the ones helping to diffuse the situation.

Arteta’s three non-negotiables are also revealed; Respect, commitment and passion. That leads to Rob Holding saying the Spaniard is “very intense”, and an example of that follows in the very next shot as the Arsenal manager explains he gets upset when he loses a duel.

There’s a brief cameo from technical director Edu, who says, “Everybody is losing it” Granit Xhaka tells his teammates that he will take the blame. Presumably, after one of his red cards last season and Mohamed Elneny makes a funny “bust some balls” comment whilst at a table with Benjamin White and Holding.

On a lighter note, there are nice some behind-the-scenes access to a number of intimate situations like Ramsdale’s transfer, players with their families and Arteta apologising to the playing squad and his backroom staff for sometimes losing his temper in the heat of the battle.
