The journalists in attendance at the premier event of Amazon Prime’s ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ have revealed several juicy details from the first three episodes.

It is clear, based on what has been reported so far, that the first three episodes primarily revolve around Jose Mourinho establishing a relationship with different members of the Spurs squad after replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the helm (talkSPORT).

The Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick has also revealed that the opening section of the docu-series show Tottenham’s much-maligned chairman Daniel Levy defend his record at the club.

Levy is a divisive figure among the fan base, with some believing that his lack of ambition has held Tottenham back from making the final step and winning major trophies.

In the documentary, the 58-year-old says: “I think the perception of me is that I’m hard-nosed, stubborn, don’t care and [am] not ambitious.

“I think a lot of that isn’t fair. I certainly think I’m incredibly ambitious to improve the team.

“They just don’t understand how hard it is to get to that place. I’ve run a lot of businesses. Running a football club is the hardest business I’ve ever run.”

Documentaries like these are often opportunities for club hierarchies to improve their perceptions among the fan base and I expect this one would be no different. Given how little we actually hear from Levy in general, I am looking forward to seeing his take on the club’s evolution and future ambitions. It will also be quite interesting to see how hands-on his role at the club is on a day to day basis.

It doesn’t matter what Levy says or does until we improve on the pitch there is no point to documentaries or trying to place a perception of being anything other than what we seen of you for the last 20 years. Lack of ambition because whilst Chelsea had a embargo he chose not to sign players, not to back managers, not to improve the quality of the team whilst Watching targets leave and join rival teams whilst sending scouts who were sunning it up in Brazil and Argentina whilst the pretending to be scouting. It also appears that the new striker target is going the way of the January striker targets. Fabrication and more lies
