ALL OR NOTHING: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Amazon got a bit more than they bargained for when they sent the cameras into north London for this behind-the-scenes look at Tottenham’s 2019-20 season. A poor start to the campaign prompts the club’s board to sack popular and successful coach Mauricio Pochettino and replace him with Jose Mourinho. As a result, this series is the only way you’ll find out why the Special One keeps a signed picture of Vinnie Jones in his office and how he really reacts to criticism from TV pundits.
