    Edouard Mendy signing is imminent allegedly, which would be a big improvement.

    I can’t explain what’s happened with Kepa.....he’s a £70 million keeper and he was so promising when he played for Bilbao.

    Can’t help but feel better coaching would improve him but easier (and quicker) to just throw more money at the problem I guess....

    @Dougs what a great read about Southall that is. Thanks for sharing.

    He's a bit bigger now too. What I love about him is his capacity to learn. He's very open when he doesn't understand an issue and let's people talk him through it. It's quite refreshing.

    The Spurs all or nothing was really good. Actually make me like Jose. It auto played the Man City one and it's so boring.

    Spurs All or Nothing was excellent, really insightful stuff....but it’s kind of sad to see the “DEFEND DEFEND DEFEND” tactician that Mourinho has become.

    I remember his Porto/Chelsea (first spell) days when he was all about attacking teams and blowing them out of the water.....pretty sure his “Its ILLEGAL to not win” days at Real ruined him.

    Good interview with Muamba here with Elis James & John Robins about his collapse and how he lives now. He’s so positive and grateful and humble.

    It was alright. Mourinho was definitely the star of the show but it was all very safe and very much a PR exercise, which is understandable. I'd like to see all the stuff Amazon weren't allowed to publish.

    The Sunderland one felt more warts and all overall, and the City one more sanitised.

    I'm definitely a fan of these shows though. Would love to see Ed Woodward behind the scenes. Full David Brent I imagine.

    If the way that chinless cunt briefs his pals in the media is anything to go by, our doc would be about as real as your average WWE storyline. I'd half expect an episode where Mbappe was about to put his name on the contract only for the lights to go off and the Undertaker to whack him with a metal chair when they came back on. Poor Ed, foiled without fault again!

    They could call the episode the Manchreal Screwjob. Sign me up Amazon.

    I can’t imagine any big club allowing the realism of the Sunderland doc

    I'm sure a lot of clubs would be a laughing stock if they allowed the reality of day-to-day to go out on air. You either carefully curate and bleach it a bit like the Spurs one, or you end up waving envelopes around on national TV rambling incoherently about trusting yourselves and making yourself and your club look a set of absolute melons.

    Too much money on the table for the latter these days.

    The Juventus one of Netflix was so slick and corporate I think I knew less about the club after watching it than I did going in.

    I stopped watching the Man City one after a couple of episodes, as all their 'problems' seemed the very epitome of first-world.

    At least with the Spurs show, Mourinho - for better or for worse - made every interaction an entertaiing watch. Also seeing the impact of Coronavirus from the inside was interesting - though I'd be a bit concerned about the executive director who asked Daniel Levy why playing behind closed doors was a problem...

    Haha, aye, after the sunderland doc it was a bit banal.

    However, it had much footage chatting with Gigi Buffon, who seemed like great bloke, so was fine for me.

    If memory serves... It was a fan video pleading for an extension, right?

    Tbh I was a bit fed up with the whole thing being so drawn out, after it was obvious weeks ago that he was signing. But that little video conversation with Wright was a lovely touch.

    Great news for Villa that.

    Was hoping we might be able to pull off a deal for him given our distinct lack of creativity.

    The official Spurs journo Alistair Gold has said a Bale loan is genuinely on the cards (having dismissed all previous links in the past).

    Good bit of business if they get him on a Sanchez-like deal.
