New Arsenal Signing Odegaard Speaks Out On Arsenal's All Or Nothing Documentary Series

The main difference Martin Odegaard will have felt since re-signing for the club will be the camera presence around the set-up at the training base in London Colney.

Since arriving on a permanent deal from Real Madrid, the 22-year-old was put straight in the mix away to champions Manchester City, where the club suffered a 5-0 defeat and sunk to rock bottom of the Premier League.

It's the first time ever the club have lost its opening three games.

The success of Amazon's series following Manchester CIty to glory a few seasons ago was really well received and of course, its all well and good when you're winning.

Arsenal fans, maybe unfairly stereotyped by the contributors of Arsenal Fan TV, will be hiding behind the couch if their team's form carries on, once the series is aired next year.

“I must admit that it’s not my favourite thing to have cameras everywhere." Odegaard said: “You automatically think a bit more about what you are saying when there are cameras there, but the crew is discreet.”

Of course, it is still early days and everyone loves a sports story of turning the ship around and defeating the odds but things look pretty bleak for Arsenal who have yet to register a goal in the league, despite turning West Brom over 6-0 in the Carabao Cup.

Manager Mikel Arteta, who was part of the Manchester City backroom staff when the Amazon crew followed the team for the 2017-18 season, was apparently not consulted on the decision to allow the crew to follow the fortunes of his Arsenal team.

Speaking to Goal, the Spaniard had his say on the matter that club Head of Communications Mark Gonnella believes will give its supporters a unique insight on the club's day-to-day activity.

"I experienced it a few years ago when I was at Man City and we are going to help as much as possible, for everybody to see what this club means and how things are done at the football club." Arteta said:

"We will be as transparent as we can to show the values, integrity, passions and where we are trying to drive this football club. Hopefully, it is a perfect year to show that.

“We need to make it happen. It is down to us to try to produce the best piece that we can, so everybody can feel part of what we do and our fans can be proud of what we do.”

Both Arteta and Odegaard will be hoping the club's fortunes change.
