Arsenal have been the subject of filming throughout the season for Amazon Prime’s All or Nothing series. The release date for the documentary is expected to be later this summer in August/September time.

However, despite filming being wrapped on Arsenal for this season, the club could accidentally find themselves part of a similar style inside look at the club next season depending on their transfer business.

Former Watford goalkeeper and YouTube footballing sensation Ben Foster has been one of a very small number of players in the game to turn his career in football into a viewable journey. His YouTube channel: Ben Foster – The Cycling GK has over a million subscribers and is watched by fans from all around the world.

Speaking on his podcast called, rather appropriately, the ‘Fozcast’, he said that the idea of joining Arsenal would appeal to him. Admitting he would be willing to play behind a keeper like Aaron Ramsdale.

“Yeah, I think I would to be honest with you,” replied Foster. “If I’m signing for a club as a No.2 goalkeeper, depending on who the first-choice goalkeeper is, so say it was someone like Arsenal or even Aston Villa for example where you’ve got the first-choice goalie, I know is a world-class goalkeeper.

“So, someone like Ramsdale or Emi Martinez, I know I’ve got a world-class goalkeeper in front of me who’s still at an age where they’re learning and they can get better – because they can, they’ve got the potential.

“Don’t get me wrong, if it’s for someone like Rambo I’m still training my head off, because that’s what I’m like, I love training, I love putting the graft in.

“But it’s an interesting one, I think I would, I think I’m at an age where I could be a No.2, I really could. I had to deal with it last year and even at the start of this season I wasn’t playing to start with, and I’m very good at getting behind the goalie that’s playing and being a cheerleader and getting him ready for the game.”

In reality, it is unlikely that Foster would come in as a No.2 for the club. With Matt Turner already signed up and coming in from New England Revolution, Foster would most likely be the third choice.

Although hypothetically, were Foster to make the cut and convince the Gunners to bring him in, it might create an unexpected twist. Specifically, from a broadcasting standpoint.

Part of Foster’s channel has been documenting the life of a professional footballer. From training to travel to matchday experiences.

Were he to sign for Arsenal he would surely want to continue the work that has brought him a strong post-playing career. Arsenal’s social game has always been one of the strongest regarding behind-the-scenes looks.

The Arsenal YouTube channel itself is one of the best followed in the country. It has over 2.74 million subscribers and counting. It brings fans closer to the stars of the men’s and women’s teams with interviews, highlights and fun games pitting the players against one another.

Could the club’s experience with the Amazon cameras make them more open to the idea of filming in the future? Possibly so and Foster would not only bring plenty of goalkeeping experience for the younger stoppers at the club but a potential avenue to create a stir in the modern era of online football content creation.
