The first three episodes of Arsenal’s All or Nothing documentary have been released, and it’s going to be box office viewing for Gooners and neutral fans alike.
But a Gunners legend has admitted to talkSPORT he was ‘amazed’ by one clip of the show – and not in a good way.
We have been teased with some trailer clips showing manager Mikel Arteta giving an emotional speech to his players, but another of them has created a huge talking point
A video to promote the series showed when Arteta blared out ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ during a training session to get his players ready for a trip to Anfield.
“I think we were all a little bit shocked when he put the music on,” new Gunners captain Martin Odegaard said.
“It just shows the way he is, he wants to prepare the team in the best possible way and he’s very creative. It was a nice and fun way to prepare for that atmosphere.
“Anfield can be the loudest stadium in the country to play away so I think it was a nice way to prepare the team.”
But it appears not everyone is as convinced by Arteta’s methods, including club legend Ray Parlour, as the Gunners went on to lose 4-0 and the Spaniard lost his head in a blazing row with Jurgen Klopp!
“That’s hilarious isn’t it, really,” Parlour told talkSPORT Breakfast.
“I’m amazed he did that, if I’m being honest. If that was me on the training pitch, I would have started laughing. We would have been mucking about.
“You go with it, that’s what the program is all about, it goes behind the scenes and it’s great for the fans, but that was bizarre.
“And it didn’t work did it – they lost 4-0!
“If Arsene Wenger did that in our training sessions, I don’t know what the reaction would be. Everybody would be laughing.
“Listen, if they went up to Anfield and they won 2-0, he’s a genius… but they didn’t!
“I’m sure Arteta won’t be doing that again!”
talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor was similarly stunned by the scenes from the show.
“First of all, this documentary is going to be funnier than a Kevin Hart standup,” said the former Aston Villa captain.
“That [The YNWA clip] is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen.
“If I was on that pitch training I would probably find it funny. You’d be laughing with your teammates.
“When they are playing in the Europa League and playing Fenerbahce away, are they going to get flares for the training ground and drums? Someone coming in to play drums while they are training?
“Honestly, it’s ridiculous. The players are not going to be on board with that.
“They lost the game by how many goals, was it 4-0? These are international players who have played in big atmospheres.
