This is just the trailer for the 8 episode documentary on Man City's record-setting season. To get it, you need Amazon Prime. Maybe you can order it, I dunno.

This is an excellent record of the 2017/2018 season, with an insider look at what happens in the dressing room, in pre-game tactical discussions, and in post game post-mortems.

You get snippets of the personalities of the players--Benjamin Mendy na betta craseman, and he was one of the stars of the documentary even though he spent most of the season in rehab--you find out a lot about Pep, and that he is a likeable guy, on the documentary anyway, as finessed by the film editor. You find out about the owners, etc.

Even the women who wash the player's undawia get a chance to be seen. The cooks, the trainers, etc.

Various debates we have here are shown to be wack. For instance,those who say coaching does not matter :roll: :roll: you know who you are. In this documentary, you find out that the claim that the team plays "the Guardiola Way," is not a joke. Pep is a hard taskmaster, and you see him at it, pushing the players and working out tactics with individual players, or players in a group. Yet you see him sing the praises of players when they win. For example, when they beat Chelsea in the first game that season due to a long range strike from Debruyner, after the game, Pep ran into the dressing room where the players were celebrating, grabbed a jersey, started swinging it around and jumping up and down while leading the fan chant-song, "Oh Kevin-Debruy-NAH!"

For instance, those who think "it is just a game," will quickly change their minds when they observe the fierce intensity with which these guys AND THEIR COACH approach their business. They are not playing.

The owners are caught up in the desire to win and set records--it is not just a plaything for them.

And we find out about their great captain Vinny (him iyawo fine well-well) who is described as "a highly intelligent man" (did you know he has an MBA which he got while playing for City?), and whose father-in-law is a Man U fan?

It is a great documentary, good for anyone who wants to understand what happens behind the scenes. :thumb:

It will also be good for txj who can now find out how real coaching actually works. :D :taunt: :sneaky:

I saw this for free somewhere online.

I wonder what the plan is when(?) Pep goes to Juve.
