Arsenal to Liverpool: Every PL club's season that would make the best Netflix show

  • Kobe Tong

Streaming services have embraced the world of football much to our entertainment in recent years.

Supporters around the world were captivated when 'All or Nothing: Manchester City' documented the inner workings of Pep Guardiola and co. winning the Premier League title with 100 points.

Then, at the other end of the spectrum, 'Sunderland 'Til I Die' has exposed the plight of a once proud top division club across two seasons, relegation, cup final defeats and play-off heartache.

And there's more to come with Tottenham going under the microscope across a 2019/20 season where Mauricio Pochettino's sacking and Jose Mourinho's arrival is just the tip of the iceberg.

It's a trend that got the team at HITC Sport wondering on their YouTube channel: which season would be the most entertaining to have its own Netflix documentary for each Premier League club?

By that they mean, if you could go back in time and pick a season for all 20 teams in which fly-on-the-wall camera footage would be the craziest, which would you choose? 

It's a fascinating concept, explored by their presenter 'The Irish Guy', and one we couldn't help documenting as so many supporters turn to Netflix for lockdown entertainment.

So, without further ado, you can check out the full video down below or keep scrolling for our breakdown of the Netflix documentaries you'll wish so hard were real.

Arsenal - 2010/11

Losing from 2-0 up at home to Tottenham, bottling the League Cup final 2-1 to Birmingham City before their relegation and blowing a 4-0 lead away to Newcastle United - need we say more?

Well, it would also be fascinating to see the dressing room footage after their 2-1 win over Barcelona as well as the second leg defeat when Robin van Persie was sent off... for shooting.


Aston Villa - 2015/16

Oh dear god. The tone was set for this diabolical, relegation-spiralling season for Villa when club captain Fabian Delph moved to Manchester City just days after filming a video especially to say he was staying.

Then there's Micah Richards clashing with the fans and Joleon Lescott saying relegation was a 'weight off his shoulders' as well as responding to Twitter abuse with a photograph of his swanky car.

Plus - yes, there is more - boyhood Villa fan Gabriel Agbonlahor earned himself a suspension after being seen partying after the club's relegation. Chaos.


Bournemouth - 2014/15

Look, all these hypothetical documentaries aren't negative one for rivals fans to feast up like vultures and it's only fair that the Cherries have their promotion-winning season chosen.

Not only did it round off a fairytale journey for Eddie Howe's men, who almost dropped out of the Football League, but also featured a staggering 113 goals and an 8-0 away win at Birmingham.


Brighton & Hove Albion - 2016/17

There's positives to take from this season: Brighton were promoted to the Premier League.

But the main appeal here is that the Seagulls' last-minute collapse against Aston Villa to hand Newcastle the Championship trophy would be absolute gold to watch on Netlfix.


Burnley - 2017/18

Can we all take a moment to appreciate that Sean Dyche led Burnley to seventh place in this particular season. How on earth have people forgotten this so easily?

Hopefully more respect would be put on the club's name if their win away to champions Chelsea, draw at Old Trafford and five-game winning streak in April was given the all-access treatment.


Chelsea - 2007/08

Duh. For starters, it would be box-office television to see how Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and the rest of the dressing room reacted to Jose Mourinho getting the sack so early on.

But let's not beat around the bush, the main attraction is seeing the aftermath of John Terry slipping and missing that crucial penalty in the Moscow rain. Grab the popcorn.


Crystal Palace - 2013/14

This season doesn't get talked about enough because finishing 11th in the Premier League after losing 10 of your first 11 games and your promotion-winning manager leaving is simply mental.

So, it would be fascinating to see Tony Pulis work miracles at Selhurst Park with a five-game winning run in April and coming back from 3-0 down against Liverpool to secure 'Crystanbul'.


Everton - 2004/05

How on earth did Everton qualify for the Champions League in 2004/05? It would be crazy to see the Toffees sneaking into the top four despite losing 10 league games after Christmas.

Combine that with David Moyes rising from his job being under threat to a legend at Goodison Park as well as Wayne Rooney's dramatic exit and you have yourself a cracking documentary.


Leicester City - 2015/16

Errr obviously... take a wild stab in the dark as to why this season would be chosen...

It would be cinema-worthy to see dressing room footage of Claudio Ranieri leading his 5,000-1 outsiders to the Premier League title in one of the biggest underdog stories in sports history.


Liverpool - 2010/11

The positive Kopites of this world would be baying to see Jurgen Klopp's rousing dressing room speeches on the way to Champions League glory, but HITC have picked the nadir of Liverpool's recent history.

It would, in fairness, be pretty mental to see Steven Gerrard and co reacting to Roy Hodgson's woeful signings, two defeats to Blackpool, floating around the relegation zone in October and the return of 'King Kenny'.

But the real box-office entertainment would be seeing Fernando Torres' move to Chelsea as well as the panic bidding for Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll that transpired in the hours afterwards.
