Football Daily presents the Extra Time podcast. Joe, Chris, & Patrick take a topic they're passionate about and deconstruct it, discuss the week in football, and ramble on interminably. It's technically content. Please rate & review!

117: The European Super League: A Discussion
On this week's podcast, Patrick van Straaten is joined by Zac Djellab and Dougie Critchley as they react to the birth of the European Super League. Long-discussed at the highest levels of the sport, the competition took a step closer to reality over the weekend, as twelve of Europe's biggest sides announced that they'll be taking part in the tournament as "founding clubs" - and sparking a huge backlash, as pundits, fans, and football authorities condemned the plans. But what would the effects be on the game...

116: El Clásico, UCL, Bread is Bread
For this episode, Sam Obaseki and Henry Hill joined me to discuss El Clasico and a Spanish title race which has suddenly become interesting, before a more disorganised chat about the Champions League, where Sam was blinded by his love of the Worst Club in London and predicted that Chelsea will win the whole thing. Then we staged a dramatic reading of Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's weird exchange about when they would and would not feed their children. It's been an odd week.Mike Atkins wrote the ti...

115: 2021's Biggest Football Failures
On this week's podcast, I'm joined by Joe Thomlinson to discuss the many disappointments and failures of the football season. We kick off with Liverpool and Tottenham, who have both underwhelmed but for very different reasons, before taking a trip to the continent to examine the abortive title charges of Juventus and Borussia Dortmund. There's also time for a patented Thomlinson rant about VAR. Join us for the year in Schadenfreude!...


114: Who Should Your Club Sell?
Hello podheads and welcome back to the Extra Time podcast, which this week welcomes Dougie Critchley to the video call to discuss the worst players at the best clubs. That's right, this week we're combing through the rosters of the big six (not really a thing anymore) to decide who can and should be culled, with both unsurprising and controversial results. It's a good opportunity to slander all your faves. We also briefly discuss the Football v Transphobia campaign and the work going on to confront this iss...

113: The Europa League Battle and Liverpool's Future
Henry Hill returns to the podcast this week for a look at the teams competing for the Europa League spots, and what failure/success would mean for each one. West Ham, Everton, and Aston Villa would surely be happy with their improvement this campaign, while Tottenham and Arsenal are bound for disappointment, and we discuss what effect missing out would have on Arteta and Mourinho, as well as talking about Liverpool's extraordinary season, and how their transfer decisions could be shaped by the next 10 weeks...

112: TuChelsea and the North London Derby
On the podcast this week, I'm joined by Sam Obaseki to discuss Thomas Tuchel's impact on Chelsea. Along the way we discuss players he likes, those who could be sold, areas to strengthen, and the stylistic adjustments Tuchel has made, as well as the team's hopes for the rest of the season. Then it's on to the North London Derby and Tottenham's weird conservatism under Jose Mourinho. Finally, there's a look at the rumours than Sergio Aguero could join Barcelona, and the amazing make-believe world of Pele and ...


111: The Relegation Kerfuffle & Myths from the Premier League
This week, FD's resident relegation expert (Fulham fan) Henry Hill joins the pod to discuss the relegation battle. We touch on Fulham rising, Newcastle sinking, Burnley bobbing around as normal, and the fully submerged West Brom and Sheffield United, before moving on to some of the prevalent myths and narratives this season, including Liverpool's transfer business, Anthony Martial, and Marcos Alonso. It's a good one!...

110: The Rise of Phil Foden and England's Attack at the Euros
This week, resident Phil Foden expert Dougie Critchley comes to the pod for a discussion of the youngster's development this season and how he can slot into both Man City and the England team going forward. That inevitably turns into two non-English people discussing England, and what their best attacking lineup could be at the Euros, as well as the tactical and stylistic issues facing Gareth Southgate....

109: Callum Hodson-Odoi & Joe Gomez: How South London Made Us
Watch 'Rise Of A South London Baller' on YouTube!Sam Obaseki presents two uncut interviews with some of the Premier League's brightest stars - Callum Hudson-Odoi (1:11) and Joe Gomez (13:28). Both brought up in South London, they share their childhood experience of coming to age in an area that has also produced the likes of Jadon Sancho and Wilfried Zaha, how it helped them adapt to playing sport at the highest level, and what they think needs to be done to protect the next generation of young ballers from...


108: Upsets Across Europe, and 5 Years of FD
A hectic weekend of European football requires some serious discussion, and Chris Hamill joins me, Patrick van Straaten, on the podcast to talk Inter's victory over Milan, and the various defeats suffered by Atletico Madrid, Bayern, and PSG, as well as those teams' prospects in the Champions League.It's also been 5 years since Joe, Chris, and I started working together at FD this month, so we took some time to talk about where the channel has been and where it might be going, with some reluctant praise for ...

107: How Can Mourinho Save His Job at Tottenham?
Tottenham have experienced a tragic/hilarious downturn in their season, so Dougie Critchley returns to the podcast to talk all things Spurs with me, Patrick van Straaten. We dig into their campaign so far and where Mourinho might be getting things wrong tactically, before finding some signings in key positions they might want to consider in the summer window....

106: What's Wrong With Liverpool, and How to Fix Refs
This week Michael McCubbin and Sam Obaseki make long-awaited returns to the podcast to chew over Man City's 4-1 demolition of Liverpool over the weekend. We talk about the game, about Phil Foden's development, and what exactly Liverpool's issues are right now, as well as the Ruben Dias penalty incident and the contentious refereeing decisions in the Prem of late. Then it's off to Italy for some grudging praise of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and yet another round of Scudetto predictions in this ridiculous season....


105: How To Fix Barcelona (Without Messi)
It's time for our yearly discussion of the mess at Barcelona, and joining me on this week's episode is Dougie Critchley, expert on all things financial and ready to do what a host of Spanish football executives and mid-tier managers have failed to do: make Barca an intelligent, self-sustaining operation. Inevitably, we talk about the club's INSANE debts, the cost of keeping Lionel Messi last summer, and the saleable assets in the squad, before moving on to the team's areas of need and who they could realist...

104: Havertz, Partey, Thiago: the Best and Worst Big Transfers So Far
This week, Henry Hill joins me to examine the performances of the most expensive summer signings so far this season. Inevitably, that takes us to Stamford Bridge, where Frank Lampard's failure to get the best out of Werner and Havertz cost him his job. How good (or bad) have they actually been? Then we move on to Arsenal, where Thomas Partey is both very good and hasn't actually made a difference to the team as a whole, and Liverpool, who seem to have found a Thiago-shaped scapegoat for all their problems. ...

103: Where Next for Europe's Unemployed Managers?
We're approaching sacking season in European football, and this week Chris Hamill joins me, Patrick van Straaten, to discuss possible destinations for the continent's best out-of-work coaches. Max Allegri is now approaching two years without a job, and it's hard to tell where a defensive coach - even an elite one - could go next. I out forward my case for Allegri as England manager. Then we talk over Thomas Tuchel as a candidate for Chelsea or Juventus, as well the squad issues and expectations facing rooki...


102: Was Özil a Failure at Arsenal? Plus Serie A Title Race & Dembele
Two guests for you this week, as I welcome Dave Jackson and Dougie Critchley to the show, to discuss Mesut Özil's impending departure from Arsenal, and the Italian title race plus Moussa Dembele's move to Atletico Madrid respectively. Dave and I talk over what Özil's signing meant to Arsenal, the myth and reality of his performances at the club, how fans fell out of love with him, and our issues with Arteta's treatment of him. Then Dougie and I chew over Milan-Juventus and Roma-Inter for clues to the destin...

101: Lampard In Trouble, United's Title Challenge, and Arsenal's Resurgence
This week Joe Thomlinson and Patrick van Straaten chew over the Christmas fixtures to discuss which teams, managers, and players have enhanced or damaged their reputations over the festive period. We discuss the crisis at Chelsea and criticism of Timo Werner, Wolves' quiet decline, Man United's potential title charge, and the impact of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe on a directionless Arsenal side. Could Frank be sacked? Is Kieran Tierney better than Roberto Carlos? It's all here....

99: The End of Year Awards Show
Chris Hamill joins me this week to hand out our awards for the year in football. We cover all the usual, from best player to best manager, trying to talk about some of the overperformers as well as the superstars, before ending with a few special awards for the heroes and villains of 2020. Along the way I complain about Arsenal fans and we both express our love for Marcus Rashford and hatred of the Tories. Thanks to everyone for listening this year, we appreciated your support in a tough time....


100: Predicting 2021 in Football
For our penultimate show of the year, Joe Thomlinson joins me, Patrick van Straaten, to predict 2021 in football. We cover the obvious stuff - the title race, the Champions League, the Euros - but also get into some potential shocks, from Arteta being sacked to Barcelona missing out on a UCL spot. Joe gets over-excited about Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and I make a bold call on what I hope is the Euro 2021 final. It's a fun one....

98: Dortmund Sack Favre, and Are Sheffield United the Worst PL Team Ever?
On this week's episode Dougie and I chat about Lucien Favre's exit from Dortmund and what's next for BVB. Did their performances really merit him losing his job? Who can they target to replace him?Then we get into the situation at Sheffield United, where the wheels have fallen off in spectacular fashion. Is there any way back (no)? Is there any point sacking Wilder?Finally we touch on the Madrid derby, Liverpool's draw with Fulham, and I probably mention Arsenal, I don't even remember. Who cares, they lost....

97: Barca Bad, Bruno Brilliant, and Young Stars to Loan in January
This week Joe Thomlinson joins me, Patrick van Straaten, for a roundup of all the big stories from the weekend (except Spurs beating Arsenal, because we've talked about Arsenal too much and was anyone really surprised by that result?). First, we've got Bruno Fernandes who is so good he sort of makes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer look worse, then Barca, who look terrible all by themselves right now. We also discuss Harry Kane's latest contribution to the world of fouling, and then chew over possible January destinati...


96: Transfer Mailbag: January Transfers To Fix Your Club
Chris Hamill joins me, Patrick, this week to go through a listener mailbag of transfer requests.

94: Spurs Masterclass, Arsenal Disasterclass and Some Ibra Love
On this week's episode, Patrick van Straaten and Henry Hill sit down to talk about the biggest news from the weekend. They start with Spurs' victory over a bereft Manchester City, before Henry backs Ibrahimovic to lead AC Milan to a long overdue Serie A crown. Then, when given the choice of talking about Barcelona or Arsenal, Henry allows Patrick to go on a 20 minute rant about whether or not Mikel Arteta is a good manager and how he never wanted to sign Thomas Partey at all. What else would you expect?...


93: Why Atletico Madrid Will Win La Liga
We've barely paid attention to Spanish football so far this campaign, but with Real Madrid and Barcelona underwhelming, Joe Thomlinson and Dougie Critchley join me this week to discuss the title race in La Liga, and why this could be Atletico Madrid's Year™. We dig into the dysfunction at the big sides, Zidane's inflexibility and Messi's possible decline, and even find time to shine a light on Real Sociedad, who might just be the best team in the league.Support comes from Manscaped. Head to Manscaped.com an...

92: Who Will Lose the Relegation Battle?
Joe Thomlinson and Chris Hamill join me this week to chew over the Premier League's relegation race, which has almost been forgotten amid the chaos at the top of the table. Just what exactly is going on, with Brighton playing like European challengers but struggling for points, and previously solid sides Burnley and Sheffield United propping up the table? Is there any hope for Fulham and West Brom? And could clubs like Newcastle get sucked in? We discuss.Support comes from Beer52. To claim your free crate o...

91: Hit or Miss? Rating 2020's Biggest Transfers
This week's podcast guest is Dougie Critchley, who joins me, Patrick van Straaten, to see how the 10 most expensive players of the summer are faring so far this campaign. Chelsea and Man City both splashed out huge sums for quick fixes, but are they working out so far? Is Thomas Partey enough to sort out Arsenal's issues? And what is going on with Juventus and Barcelona, whose ridiculous Arthur-Pjanic swap only looks stranger after a few weeks of the season?Support this week comes from Beer52. Head to beer5...


90: Should Man City Replace Pep with Pochettino?
This week, Joe Thomlinson and Chris Hamill join me on the podcast for what is meant to be a round-up episode, but quickly turns into yet another Arsenal conversation. Then we eventually get round to Man City, who have tried to cure their defensive woes by becoming boring. Has it worked? Is Pep done? Should the club try a non-bald manager? We answer basically none of these questions.Then it's on to what we learned this week, which features Ajax pummelling Venlo and now regular segment Joe Apologises For His ...

89: What Is Going On With Arsenal?
This week, I'm joined by George Wright to discuss all things Arsenal. Though currently riding high in the table, the Gunners are still pretty dull and had an odd window, with the much-heralded arrivals of Partey and Gabriel offset by the weird acquisition of Willian and departures for Torreira and Guendouzi. Just what sort of rebuild starts with shipping out young players? Then we get into the problems with the team, Arteta's (presumed) long-term plans, and the exciting crop of teenagers coming through the ...

88: How Worried Are We About Juventus, PSG, and Bayern?
We follow up our episode from a fortnight ago by examining the start big European clubs have made, and asking whether there's anything seriously wrong with them. PSG have picked up four red cards and some poor results already; Bayern lost their 32-match unbeaten streak; and Juve remain a big fat question mark as Pirlo works out whether he can play himself in midfield. Are there major causes for concern, or just early teething issues? Michael McCubbin and Dougie Critchley join me to find out....


87: Hot Takes: Why Arsenal Should Have Sold Aubameyang, and Potter > Lampard
This week Chris Hamill and Joe Thomlinson join me, Patrick van Straaten, for a throwback to Hot Takes, one of our least popular formats. True to form, we massively overreact to the first four games of the season, with Chris declaring Graham Potter better than Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Joe claiming Everton will finish in the top 4. Then I have a look at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's terrible start to the season, and call the entire Arsenal fanbase stupid. Same same really.Support comes from Ma...

85: How Worried Are We About The Premier League's Big Teams?
This week, Joe Thomlinson joins me, Patrick, to talk about four of the Prem's traditional powers: Man City, Man United, Chelsea, and Tottenham. All four have endured difficult starts to the season, are bedding in new players, and awaiting the arrival of others, but just how worried should we be by their results to date? Joe and I discuss City's weird squad, United's disappearing defence, Frank Lampard's tinkering, and the early arrival of third-season Mourinho in an attempt to get to the bottom of things.Th...

84: Are Liverpool Building Their Next Great Team?
This week, Dougie and I (Patrick) look at Liverpool's transfer business, which after a quiet start has exploded in the last few weeks. We dig into the stats to see what attracted the club to Kostas Tsimikas, go all heart-eyes-emoji about Thiago's arrival in the Premier League (and what it means for Wijnaldum), and then discuss Diogo Jota. How good is he right now, and how good can he be? And does this mean Klopp is planning a big sale in 2021? Then we talk One Thing We Learned, with some analysis of PSG's m...


83: One Thing We Learnt About Every Premier League Club This Weekend
This week, Mike Atkins steps in for Patrick, who is away on holiday, and is joined by Dougie Critchley and self-proclaimed Tim Ream lookalike Henry Hill, where they take a look at every team that played this weekend. For once that means no talk of either of the Manchester clubs, but it's also the most we'll likely speak about Crystal Palace or Sheffield United all season. Enjoy!...

82: The Premier League Preview
Today, Dougie and Patrick discuss the new Premier League season and what we can expect from the dozens of new additions made over the course of the transfer window. Top 4 and relegation predictions were covered on last week's Sunday Vibes, so instead we talk over our best and worst transfers of the summer so far, which youngsters could make breakthroughs, and our hot takes on the season ahead, which are genuinely spicy....

81: How To Fix: European Round-Up
This week, Henry Hill and Patrick discuss three clubs with different aims, different budgets, and different problems. First, we look at Atletico Madrid, and how they can add more goals and plan for the possible exit of Thomas Partey. Then it's Southampton, who, as always, are looking for creativity. And finally, to Roma, trying to find long-term heirs for Dzeko, Kolarov, and Chris Smalling I guess. If you prefer to watch this week's episode, make sure to subscribe to our new YouTube channel, Football Daily ...


80: Coman the Bavarian and Neymar's Tears: UCL Final Review
Chris Hamill and Mike Atkins join Patrick on the pod this week to talk about the Champions League final.

79: Messi Out, Koeman In: The Mess at Barcelona
What a week for Barcelona. In the space of a few days, Samuel Umtiti tested positive for Covid, they lost 8-2 to Bayern in the Champions League, Setien was sacked, Koeman targeted, ter Stegen ruled out until November following knee surgery, Messi said he wanted to leave, and Arthur was caught drunk-driving.

74: The Summer's Best Unwanted Stars
This week, Patrick and Dougie discuss the big clubs who could be trimming their squads this summer, and the bargains which could be had as a result. We chat over Luka Jovic's season and whether he'd still make sense for Leicester, Arsenal, or Milan; Matteo Guendouzi's fall from grace at the Emirates and a possible switch to PSG, Lyon, or Atletico; and Federico Bernardeschi and Juventus' team of arthritic pensioners who still manage to win Serie A every year. Then some quick transfer hits, including Benrahma...

Plus some Pep slander and #UnpopularOpinions about how ma...
