10 Best Football Documentaries Of All Time

All or Nothing: Leyton Orient?

HBO

Considering Spurs have declined from perennial top four finishers and Champions League finalists to mid-table also-rans with all the charisma of a bus shelter since swapping Mauricio Pochettino for Jose Mourinho, the upcoming fly-on-the-wall doc, All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, promises to be both fascinating and hilarious.

The previous effort in the Amazon Prime series, which took sportswashing juggernaut Manchester City as its subject, presented an infallible team apexing under the intensity of a peak coach - and with it, very little drama. The Spurs version, given the looming turmoil creeping over the North London club, is likely to be a different - and vastly more interesting - story. Particularly if its privy to The Special One's demeanour behind-the-scenes. Is his volatility an act, or is he actually playing it down for the sake of PR? It'll be fascinating to find out.

The promise is there, then, but it'll have to go some lengths to distinguish itself as the finest football documentary of all time. For an industry which is oddly secretive about what goes on in the dressing room, there have been a surprising quantity of incredible, eye-opening flicks about the beautiful game. These are the most beautiful.
