BT Sport "State of Play" Documentary


Recommended Posts

Premiering at the moment on BT Sport, post-Europa Final.



Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “State of Play is both a confrontation of modern football’s flaws and a celebration of its virtues.”

State of Play features interviews with a diverse range of figures from all levels of the game including Bale, Lampard, Rose, Jadon Sancho, Hayes, Arsenal Women’s manager Joe Montemurro, Allardyce, Dyche, Thomas Hitzlsperger and Ferdinand.

Really interesting exploration of what it's like to be a modern figure in football, including interview with our own Der Hammer.

Also the source of the Gareth Bale quote about "being like a robot", which he's taken a lot of stick for in Spain, but in the documentary comes across as a thoughtful response to a question.

Not loads of coverage of Villa, but some thought provoking stuff about how fans interact with players. The mental health section is interesting, particularly as some of our players (Tyrone Mings, for example) have previously struggled with mental health issues.

Well worth a watch if you can find it.
