The heart and soul of Manchester City shines through during their treble winning documentary

Earlier this week, Netflix released the highly anticipated six part Treble Winners documentary on Manchester City’s 22/23 treble winning season. The six episode followed Manchester City’s history making season from beginning to end as Pep Guardiola’s side became only the second side to claim the treble. Throughout the documentary, the heart and soul of the world champions are on full display, which helped carry them such a historical feat last season.

Ever since Manchester City was taken over by Sheikh Mansour’s Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG) in 2008 accusations that the clubs titles and achievements mean less than other clubs has followed. It has been an almost constant narrative during City’s era of dominance across English football.

But the heart and soul of Manchester City shines through during the Treble Winners documentary. The behind the scenes access with the players, City staff and Pep Guardiola show that in spades. It is an environment cultivated by the City manager, and his players and staff follow him accordingly. That foundation, coupled with their incredible ability and workrate, carried Manchester City to treble glory last season.

The joy felt by Manchester City fans across the globe during last season’s success is well encapsulated throughout the documentary. City’s fans push Pep Guardiola’s team to greater heights. It was evident during Manchester City’s famous UEFA Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid last season. The joy and connection between the fans and the club stood out throughout the documentary. With the recent announcement of season ticket prices increasing for next season, the hope is that connection is never lost. It is a key component of what makes Manchester City so special.

Soulless clubs don’t achieve what Manchester City did last season. It takes ability, hard work, drive, and determination from Manchester City’s players and staff to achieve what they did last season. But the club’s heart and soul were also a key component of the historic triumph. It is on full display throughout the Treble Winners documentary, and that fact should never be overlooked when Manchester City’s success is discussed.
