And if I don't have Amazon Prime? Can't justify paying since I already subscribe to packages for Premier League, Cricket, and Netflix

Watched the first two episodes. It's ok, but it's like a season review rather than anything in depth. There was a voice over about the "world class players" who've come from the academy, then a brief mention of Milner and Phillips and that's it. No mention of O'Leary or Revie players. It would've been nice to celebrate the history of the academy and not just Orta signings.

Young players are overly pampered these days, explains why they struggle out on loan. It's not like the 90s when they had to scrub boots and put the cones out.

Also it's very out of date with Phillips and Kenneh featured a lot :lol:

I've watched the first two. Really good watch. Joffy was looking so sharp before his injuries and bench warming for the first team.

Watched all six, excellent stuff.
I didn't realise how unlucky the U23's were in their last game against Arsenal. At 1-1 Mateo Joseph had a goal disallowed for offside but replays showed he was onside. Had they won that game they would have stayed up.
You don't hear much about Sean McGurk but he certainly looked decent in the documentary.
