Crazy Season At Spurs Makes Us Very Excited For Amazon Series
Mauricio Pochettino being sacked, Jose Mourinho's appointment, a 7-2 loss in the Champions League and now Eric Dier going into the crowd, the All or Nothing series featuring Spurs is set to be wild.
Tottenham Hotspur are the sports side to be featured in Amazon Prime Video's documentary series All or Nothing, following in the footsteps of Manchester City, the All Blacks, the Brazil national team, Philadelphia Eagles and others.
Quite frankly Amazon couldn't have picked a better season to follow Spurs, though fans of the club might wish their run to the Champions League final last season was the one that had been captured.

Jose Mourinho said Dier was being "insulted".
He added: "The family was there, the younger brother was not happy with the situation."

With Daniel Levy sacking Pochettino earlier this season and replacing him with Mourinho, just months after that failure against Liverpool, the series was already expected to be extremely exciting.
Wednesday night's loss in the FA Cup, to Premier League strugglers Norwich City, just added a whole extra level of excitement.
Mourinho's decision to pick third choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm backfired as the Dutchman made a mistake in the second half to allow the Canaries to equalise.
The game went to extra time with the manager bringing on young striker Troy Parrott, much to the delight of the home crowd who are desperate to see the homegrown talent used more often.
However the Irishman was one of three players to miss penalties as the north London side were knocked out of the cup thanks to spot kicks.
The drama continued as Eric Dier reacted to abuse from a home fan, reportedly directed at his brother, by climbing into the stand to confront the abuser.
There could yet be more drama added to the series before the season is over with Spurs still having a chance to overturn their 1-0 deficit against RB Leipzig in the Champions League last 16.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min could still return to action in an attempt to get the club into the top four for the end of the season.
Earlier in the campaign Pochettino admitted he wasn't happy with the cameras, saying, "When the club agreed the deal with Amazon, of course we were worried about it. Because it is not easy, not easy.
"It is tough to have the camera in your office, and then how you handle the situation to have the capacity to say: 'OK, I am not in a good mood, but sometimes the camera is going to be there.' It is so complicated, it is another thing to worry about and of course that adds a lot."
Everyone not involved with the club will be very happy to see what happens when the show comes to Amazon Prime Video later this year.
