Extra Time Podcast

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!

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 Dail...

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. We talk over the tactics, the disappointing performances from some of the stars on show, and where this Bayern side ranks among the best sides of the last decade. There's also time for beard chat....

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. On today's podcast, Patrick, Joe, and Michael McCubbin discuss Friday's game, the managerial landscape, and the mess which is the squad. Then we disagree about selling Messi. Support for this week's pod...


78: Real Out Of Europe, Sarri Out Of Juventus, and Champions League Predictions!
This week, Joe Thomlinson and Dougie Critchley join Patrick van Straaten to chat over the fallout from the Champions League round of 16. A sluggish Real Madrid got brutalised by Man City, Juve were embarrassed by Lyon, while Bayern continue to look unbeatable, and Barca continue to be bailed out by Messi. What did we learn heading into the quarter-finals? Can anyone beat Bayern? And what are Juventus doing hiring Pirlo as their new coach? Support this week comes from Manscaped. For 20% off + free shipping,...

77: How To Fix Tottenham Hotspur
You asked for it, so we've brought it back! This week Patrick and Dougie look at how Jose Mourinho can rebuild Spurs, what a Jose Mourinho-type player actually is, and whether or not Jose Mourinho will even be at Spurs beyond next summer. Also, if you haven't already, don't forget to subscribe to our new YouTube channel, Football Daily Podcasts.

75: Lampard at Chelsea and Arteta at Arsenal: Year One Review
On this week's episode, I am joined by legit Chelsea insider Zac Djellab to discuss Frank Lampard's first season with the Blues: their performances, their issues, their transfer business to date, and what else they need, as well as our predictions for next season. Then Arsenal outsider George Wright hops on to chat all things Arsenal. We get into the changes under Arteta, the state of the squad, our hopes for the transfer window, and what we can expect from both the FA Cup final and the 2020/21 season. We ...

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...

73: Is The Top Four Done For Good? Plus Thiago to Liverpool
This week's episode sees Henry Hill and Mike Atkins join Patrick on the podcast to talk about Man United's form and Chelsea's signings, and whether anyone will be able to compete with them for 3rd and 4th spot over the coming years, given the messes at Spurs and Arsenal. Then we roll into the rumours that Thiago Alcantara could swap Munich for Merseyside, and discuss whether Robert Lewandowski should win the Ballon d'Or over Messi....


72: Have Barcelona Made the Worst Transfer of the Summer?
This week Chris Hamill returns to the podcast to discuss the Arthur-Pjanic swap, how stupid it is, and what it means for both players, Barcelona, and Juventus. Then we mull over Inter's capture of Achraf Hakimi - one of the best young fullbacks in the game right now - and how the Nerazzurri's long-term future might shape up with the Moroccan in the side. This episode is brought to you by Harry's. For your £3.95 trial set, head to harrys.com/extra....

71: How Can Football Fight Racism?
On this week's episode, Patrick is joined by Sam Obaseki to talk about football's response to the global political protests following the killing of George Floyd. We discuss the contribution of players, clubs, and football authorities to the process of removing racism both from the game and society, and the steps we, as fans, can take to move towards racial justice. If you can, please consider signing petitions (for example those seeking justice for Shukri Abdi and Belly Mujinga), and writing to politician...

70: Let's Try This Again: The Premier League Returns
The Premier League is back, BACK, B A C K! Soon anyway.

Then we talk about conspiracy theories and the Moon being hollow....


69: Sancho, Werner, Koulibaly, Partey: Who Clubs Should Sign Instead
This week Dougie and Patrick talk about the cheap alternatives to some of the biggest names on the transfer market this summer. We're all bored of Werner, Sancho, Koulibaly, and Partey, so who should your club buy instead of them, if those players prove too expensive? We turn up some interesting gems and some superstars-in-waiting, and do what is basically our recurring told-you-so segment at this point....

68: Is van Dijk the Best Premier League Defender Ever?
Hello Extra-Timers, and welcome to this week's episode, which features Dave Jackson in his podcast debut and relative veteran Henry Hill, making his second appearance. These West London boys join Patrick van Straaten to discuss the return of the Premier League, Vincent Kompany's claim that VVD is the best PL defender ever, and whether Leon Bailey would be a good Leroy Sane replacement. Then it's onto lockdown past-times, including the now obligatory Cooking Corner (TM) with Patrick van Straaten. Enjoy!...

67: Premier League Bottom Half XI
This week Dougie and Patrick collaborate to build an XI out of the teams in the bottom half of the Premier League, taking time to discuss some of the division's unheralded stars and which lower-half heroes could hope for moves to bigger sides this summer. Then there's a debate over how high the team could finish....


66: Has Cancelling Ligue 1 Killed French Football?
This week Patrick is joined by podcast debutant Henry Hill (not from Goodfellas) to discuss the controversy over the end of the French league season, and Lyon taking the French football authorities to court because they finished 7th (lol). They chat over what this means for the division and which players could leave cheaply this summer, before Patrick defends himself against his haters following his review of Joker on Twitter. Henry rounds things off with his movie hot takes, and to everyone's shock, he and...

65: Bundesliga Predictions, Sane to Bayern, and Jorginho to Juventus
On this week's Extra Time, Patrick is joined by Mike Atkins and Zac Djellab to discuss the return of the Bundesliga and make predictions for the end of the season.

64: Champions League for €50m? The Summer's Best Bargains

If you want to know who your team should sign this summer, start here....


63: How To End The Season
What's up podheads, welcome back to the 4th or 5th episode of the coronavirus podcasts. How is everyone doing?

62: The Best Premier League Team of the 2010s Draft
On this episode of the Extra Time podcast, Patrick van Straaten is joined by Chris Hamill and Zac Djellab to draft competing teams made up of the best players to appear in the Premier League over the last decade. Zac and Chris didn't understand at first because they didn't read the script, but the idea got clearer after I drafted Luis Suarez. Head to Twitter to vote on which team turned out best (hint: it's not Chris'). This week's episode is brought to you by Beer52. Head to Beer52.com/extra to pick up you...

61: Ndombele to Barca, Real Madrid go wild, and Sancho out
On this week’s episode of Extra Time, Patrick and Dougie discuss some of the biggest transfer rumours to hit the headlines this week. First, we turn our attention to Real Madrid, who are apparently keen to rebuild their frontline with moves totalling nearly half a billion euros for Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, and Kylian Mbappe. But are those the right moves? Is Pogba right for their midfield? Will they have to sell Asensio or Hazard to make it work? Then we look at how Dortmund might respond to Sancho lea...


60: The Worst Man United Player Ever - Joe's Life In Football
This week we bring you a special episode, taking you inside Joe Thomlinson's head (fresh from a haircut he gave himself with a beard trimmer). From his earliest memories of the game to the unexpected players he loves and hates, we talk about his ups and downs as a Man United fan, and I get in a lot of digs about how terrible United are now. Let us know if you like the format, and who you'd like to see interviewed next....

54: Man City Banned - Can They Recover?
Zac Djellab, Dougie Critchley, and Patrick van Straaten discuss Man City's Champions League ban, and what it changes for their finances and transfers, as well as the new Premier League top 5 race. We examine the club's insistence that they did nothing wrong, but also that the evidence UEFA has that they did something wrong was stolen, and if they did do anything wrong it probably shouldn't be wrong in the first place, and also that it's a witch hunt. Plus some Pep slander and #UnpopularOpinions about how ma...

53: Broken Barcelona, A Look Ahead to the Champions League, and The Oscars

On the final regular podcast of the year, Patrick, Mike Atkins, and Joe sit down to discuss Everton's expected appointment of Carletto, Serie A's let's say misguided anti-racism campaign, and why no-one should ever join Manchester United unless they've got a mortgage to pay.

And when Alex Iwobi makes the team of the year, I expect apologies from all of you in my mentions. Happy Christmas!...
