Episodes

141: An Alternate Look At The Ballon D'Or

It's a Continental Club takeover this week on the podcast as Dougie Critchley and Michael McCubbin join Henry Hill for a slightly different episode. With the Ballon D'or 2021 nominations being released, the trio take a look at the award since 2008, when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo began their duopoly. If this pair didn't exist, who would have won each year instead? A lot of talk about Andres Iniesta and Xavi, naturally, but also fond memories of Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery and Wesley Sneijder come up. Has Neymar deserved one on merit in the last few years, and how the hell did Luis Suarez not win it that one year? It's a great chat.

140: Who is the Player of the Season So Far?

It's a special one this week, as Patrick van Straaten is joined by Sam Obaseki and, making his first and possibly last appearance as a guest on the podcast, Sonny Snelling! Of course with Sonny on, the first topic of discussion is Spurs. Is Nuno the right man for the job, should they have sold Harry Kane in the summer, and will they qualify for Europe this season? Then they talk Liverpool v. Manchester City, arguably the best Premier League game in a very long time, with Phil Foden, Mo Salah, Bernardo Silva and Rodri all getting some love, before a brief chat about Claudio Ranieri taking over at Watford - is he doomed? They round off by deciding who has been player of the season so far. Sonny surprises everyone by naming a West Ham player. Enjoy!

139: Which Manager Will Be Sacked Next?

This week on the podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Zac Djellab and Joe Thomlinson as they run their fingers down the list of the managers most likely to be sacked. Steve Bruce at Newcastle is favourite, whilst Arsenal's Mikel Arteta remains with low odds despite three straight fixtures. Daniel Farke needs to dig Norwich out of a hole after six straight defeats, and Xisco be the next manager to face the chop, seeing as he manages a trigger-happy Watford side? Spurs' Nuno Espirito Santo is facing early criticism from the fans, whilst fellow newly-appointed boss Bruno Late is navigating a tricky start with Wolves. Then there's Ralph Hasenhuttl - he arrived in the Premier League to plenty of fanfare, but after three years has his Southampton side seen any progress? It's another belter - we hope you enjoy it!
29/09/2144m 11s

138: Who Has The Best Starting XI In The Premier League?

Patrick van Straaten steps back into host this week's episode and he is joined by Sam Obaseki and James Waine. Perfect accompaniment for the topic of discussion today - which Premier League team has the best starting eleven? It ultimately boils down to three teams, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. Sam is vehemently pro-Chelsea, James is a Manchester City fan but slightly more open to reason, whilst Patrick reckons over half of Liverpool's ideal starting eleven might be the best in their position in the world. And as ever, when Patrick and Sam are on the same show, voices are raised and arguments begin, all whilst James sits sniggering in the background. It's a good one, you don't want to miss it. Enjoy!
22/09/2159m 53s

137: What's Next For Arsenal?

It's time for the annual Arsenal podcast! Dougie Critchley, a neutral mediator, is joined today by two Arsenal fans, Patrick van Straaten and the lesser-spotted George Wright. They talk all things Gunners. Was their start to the season really that bad? At what point does sacking Mikel Arteta make the most sense? They talk about what they don't like about the club, then what they do, giving a lot of airtime to the 'Hale End Kids' - Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe to you and me. They discuss future transfer plans and the need to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and how their transfers this summer have been good. Then someone mentions Granit Xhaka and the show goes off the rails; the Swiss international is a divisive character for sure. But somehow, this is actually a broadly positive podcast about Arsenal for a change. Is the future really that bright in North London?

136: Football Daily Rank The BEST Strikers In The Premier League

Henry Hill once again hosts, but this time finds Zac Djellab and Michael McCubbin sitting alongside him. This week, they go through all 20 Premier League teams and take a look at their primary striking options, and give them a good old rank. Who's elite? How good do you have to be if you want to be knocking on the door instead of just a solid marksman? And who do we want to send back to the Championship? Some are no-brainers, like Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, but where does Timo Werner fit in? Is Jamie Vardy still elite? Just how good is Michail Antonio these days? And then there's the harder decisions - we all love Danny Welbeck, but is he good enough? If they're a Premier League striker, we talk about them here. Probably. Enjoy!
08/09/2145m 36s

135: Was This The Craziest Transfer Deadline Day Ever?

This week's episode sees Dougie Critchley and Chris Hamill team up with Henry Hill to cast their eye over everything that happened in football on August 31st, 2021. The transfer window may have closed but the trio kept their minds open as they attempted to understand why some clubs made moves they did. All the big deals are covered, including Antoine Griezmann being replaced by Luuk De Jong at Barcelona, West Ham making the double signing of Nikola Vlasic and Alex Kral, Spurs' acquisition of Emerson Royal and Crystal Palace's swoop for Odsonne Edouard. Daniel James, Saul Niguez, Marc Cucurella and many more are also discussed - if a player moved on deadline day, they talk about him here. It's an episode not to be missed.
01/09/2154m 50s

134: Transfers That Have To Happen Before The End Of The Window!

On this week's episode, Henry Hill is joined by Patrick van Straaten and Samuel Obaseki to cast their eye over everything transfer-related. They take the top six clubs (plus one - Arsenal or Leicester, take your pick), and bring up a few names each should be looking at. Before that though, they discuss the Kylian Mbappe situation now Real Madrid have finally put a bid in for the PSG man, and whether or not Mino Raiola should be commanding all that money for his client Erling Haaland, who probably doesn't care about any of it. So who should Man City target up front - Lautaro Martinez or Harry Kane (yes we filmed this before his announcement, you don't need to tell us), and should Chelsea prioritise a centre-back in Jules Kounde, or Saul Niguez in midfield? Patrick explains why Rodrigo Bentancur is perfect for Man Utd, whilst Spurs and Leicester lack any decent squad depth - could one of them go for Philippe Coutinho? Then of course, they talk Arsenal, and Patrick is surprisingly optimistic. Maybe it's because he's a new dad. Enjoy!
25/08/2157m 6s

133: Why Manchester United Will Finish Above Liverpool This Season

He's back...Patrick van Straaten is back in the host's chair, and is joined by Joe Thomlinson and SamObaseki. They play a game of over/under - Patrick provides three scenarios, and the trio discuss the likelihood of it happening. Will Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang score more than 12 Premier League goals? Will Manchester United finish above Liverpool? Will Barcelona finish below third in La Liga? Find out the trio's opinions on those here. Then Sam asks about Aston Villa and their hopes for the upcoming campaign, they discuss what it should take for Spurs to accept an offer for Harry Kane from Manchester City, before rounding up with an intense discussion on Romelu Lukaku. Is this a redemption tour for the Belgian? Sam backs Chelsea, whilst Joe and Patrick are team Lukaku. Enjoy!
18/08/211h 1m

132: Will This Championship Season Be The Best Ever?

This week on the podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Championship know-it-all Will Brazier to take a look at the season aead for England's second tier. They discuss the managerial merry-go-round, which saw Scott Parker join Bournemouth, Slaviska Jokanovic take over at Sheffield United and Marco Silva moving to Fulham. They look at the big money transfers, of which Harry Wilson is really the only one, and how the promoted teams could fare - will they all stay up? Then of course they make their predictions - it's looking good if you're a West Brom fan, but not if you like Derby County. Enjoy!
11/08/2144m 32s

131: Will Chelsea Challenge For The Premier League Title?

On this week's episode of the Extra Time podcast, Michael McCubbin takes over hosting duties and is joined in the virtual studio by Sam Obaseki and Zac Djellab. And what do those two have in common? That's right, they're Chelsea fans, and yes, this is an episode all about their favourite football club. After Thomas Tuchel's takeover, the Blues finished top four, reached the FA Cup Final and of course won the Champions League - will the German manager deliver again? The club have made no moves of note in the transfer market, where do they need to strengthen, and who else do they need to sell? And of course, the big question. Will Chelsea challenge for the Premier League title? All that and more this week. Enjoy!

Do all of the front three deserve a new deal, or is one of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino on the way out? What about the midfield - is it time for Jurgen Klopp to cash in on Naby Keita, and does Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have a future at Anfield? And Virgil van Dijk sticking about is a no-brainer, right?

129: Football Daily's Euro 2020 Awards Show

This week Henry Hill was joined by Joe Thomlinson and Chris Hamill to hand out awards such as best player, biggest flop, and surprise package at Euro 2020!  Did Donnarumma really deserve to be named best player? Was France vs Switzerland better than Spain vs Croatia? And was Harry Kane's goal against Germany the moment of the tournament? Tune in to find out! 
13/07/2146m 47s

128: Who Will Win EURO2020?

On this week's episode of Extra Time, Henry Hill is joined by Michael McCubbin and Sam Obaseki as they cast their eye over the upcoming EURO2020 semi final games. First they talk Spain v. Italy, where the battle will be won or last, raving about Pedri and whether or not Alvaro Morata will actually find the back of the net. As for Italy, after discussing how big a loss Leonardo Spinazzola is, they talk about Gianluigi Donnarumma's impressiveness in goal and that going forward Lorenzo Insigne will be the difference maker. Then of course, it's England v. Denmark. The trio big up England, as you'd expect, talking about the likes of Raheem Sterling, Declan Rice and Harry Maguire, before remembering that Denmark are also really good at football, and how Joakim Maehlr and Mikkel Damsgaard are rising stars, and of course Kasper Schmeichel and Simon Kjaer are imperious in defence. This podcast is everything you need know about the EURO2020 semi finals.

Aston Villa beat Arsenal to the signing of Emiliano Buendia from Norwich, despite almost two years of rumours linking the Gunners to the Argentine. Gini Wijnaldum looks set for PSG after twelve months of talks linking him with former boss Ronald Koeman at Barcelona. And then there's Antonio Conte, who many thought was set for Spurs before, well, Spurs got in the way of themselves. Dougie also runs through his Fanteam squad - there's still time for you to sign up and play along!

With a fantasy £105M to play with, the pair select eleven starters and four subs, and both opted for a 3-4-3 formation to maximise the points available. Only two of their players are the same, with differences all over the pitch - Donnarumma or Lloris in goal? Will Luis Enrique start Jordi Alba or Jose Gaya? Kevin de Bruyne or Bruno Fernandes? Jadon Sancho or Mason Mount? Also, with Memphis Depay down as a midfielder, you can bet we talk about him again, and Joe picks the three cheapest Scotsmen to stick on the bench, purely at Hamill's expense. Enjoy!

123: Who Should Be In The England Squad?

On this week's podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Dougie Critchley and Sam Obaseki to dissect Gareth Southgate's recent England squad announcement. The trio look at players omitted from the 33-man provisional side, including James Maddison, Patrick Bamford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, before trying to work out which seven players should be left off the plane (or team bus). The key discussions boil down to which one of Mason Greenwood, Bukayo Saka or Ollie Watkins should Southgate take, whether or not Jesse Lingard should make the final 26, and of course, The Right Back Dilemma. Who should miss out - Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James or Kieran Trippier? Sam thinks one thing, Henry thinks another, and Dougie, love of all things European football, is left to mediate - his decision may surprise you. Enjoy!
26/05/2156m 27s

122: The Players Your Club Should Sign This Summer

On this week's episode of Extra Time, Henry Hill and Dougie Critchley sit down to discuss some of the biggest transfer rumours ahead of the summer window. They look at Manchester United's centre back dilemma, and whether Pau Torres or Raphael Varane is a more sensible transfer, before looking at Leicester City's striker issue. Tammy Abraham is unhappy at Chelsea, but Odsonne Edouard could prove a cheap alternative. They can't work out what Chelsea need to do, before of course having a chat about Harry Kane and Manchester City. This episode may have been recorded six hours before the Kane transfer news broke on Monday evening, but it goes to show that here at Football Daily we really do have our finger on the pulse of everything football - and get a thumbnail of course. Enjoy!
18/05/2145m 57s

121: Extra Time Meets Ivan Toney: Brentford, the Premier League, and Racism

Many thanks to EA and the EFL for getting us time with top striker Ivan Toney! Sam Obaseki and Zac Djellab sit down with the Brentford striker and Championship Golden Boot winner. They discuss everything in his career to date, from breaking through at Northampton Town so early and his big move to Premier League side Newcastle United, to his various loan moves away from St James Park and of course, his form this season with Brentford. The 25 year old also discusses what he looks for when he moves club, the songs fans sing about him, and setting his own targets before the season starts. There's a brief pause when his child gets in on the action, before they go on to talk about racism, taking a knee, the social media blackout and what more can be done in the fight against racism in football. Enjoy!
14/05/2137m 34s

120: The Big Fat Championship Show Of The Year

On this week's edition of the Extra Time podcast, Henry Hill takes the reins as the only member of the FD team to support a Championship side, although this was recorded before Fulham's inevitable demise. He is joined by friend of the channel Will Brazier to discuss all things Championship, from Norwich and Watford's immediate returns to the Premier League, Ivan Toney's incredible goalscoring exploits, Barnsley actually being exciting and Wayne Rooney being a good manager for a few weeks before almost getting Derby relegated. If you like English football's second tier, this is the show for you. If you don't, then we'd appreciate you listening anyway - it's a really good episode. Enjoy!
11/05/2148m 1s

119: Inter triumphant, Lille expectant, and chaos at Old Trafford

On this week's episode not-quite-father Patrick van Straaten is joined by Henry Hill and Sam Obaseki, as they muse over European football's talking points - but not before the two of them try to guess the name of Patrick's imminent baby. Inter Milan have finally won Serie A, but can they sustain another challenge along with Europe next year? Lille are four games away from making history in Ligue 1, but with PSG breathing down their necks, can they hold on? Finally, they discuss the utter chaos that went on at Old Trafford that saw Manchester United's game against Liverpool postponed, and what that could mean for the future of the Glazers at the club. And of course, the big question - will Patrick be here next week? Only one way to find out.
04/05/2148m 28s

118: The Next Tottenham Manager (and the Carabao Cup)

On this week's episode, Dougie Critchley and I laugh about the extremely one-sided Carabao Cup final, before diving into a discussion of the possible candidates to take over the managerial role at Spurs. We examine the suitability of the leading names - Nagelsmann, Marcelino, Potter, Rodgers, and ten Hag - as well as the state of the squad and the current antipathy between board and fans. Overall it's more positive about Tottenham than you might expect (but still does contain a lot of laughing).
27/04/2137m 33s

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? Can we take the criticism seriously? And what does this mean for us as fans? We present our unfiltered thoughts.
19/04/2137m 19s

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 title for this week's episode and I couldn't improve on it. 
13/04/2152m 53s

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!
06/04/2144m 41s

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 issue, which affects all of us. For more information, head to www.footballvhomophobia.com/fvt/ or consider tweeting about the ways that trans fans, players, and pundits enrich your experience of the game. Football is for everyone, and the only people excluded from this terrible sport should be the people with the good sense not to take an interest in the first place.

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.
23/03/2157m 15s

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 his 1000 imaginary goals.
16/03/2145m 15s

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!
09/03/2154m 5s

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.
02/03/2136m 57s

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 South London.  These were part of a documentary made by Sam called 'Rise Of A South London Baller', a deep dive into how the South London culture and environment moulded players playing in the Premier League and around the world, and also features interviews from SE Dons captain Big G and the owner of Lambeth Tigers, a youth football club in the heart of England's capital that have recently partnered with Sancho. Other organisations also feature and speak on what more can be done to help the next generation of football stars growing up in this area and the hardships they may face.
27/02/2132m 10s

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 Joe.
23/02/2152m 39s

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. 
16/02/2158m 45s

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.
09/02/2143m 59s

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 realistically target. It makes pretty grim listening for Barca fans, but it's very funny for everyone else.
02/02/2153m 0s

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. Also there's some Donny van de Beek chat, and continued confusion over what exactly the Arthur-Pjanic swap was meant to accomplish.
26/01/2156m 29s

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 rookie bosses Lampard and Pirlo. Finally, we whip through some other intriguing managers, from Sarri to Jardim, and Chris runs the rule over possible Neil Lennon replacements at Celtic.

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 destination of this season's Scudetto, have a chat about Conte's weirdly attacking tactics so far, and finish up with an analysis of what Moussa Dembele will bring to Atleti and the transfer's effects on the Spanish and French title races.

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. Support comes from Manscaped.

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 destinations for three youngsters not getting minutes: Riqui Puig, Martin Odegaard, and William Saliba.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Previous Terrible Opinions.

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 academy.

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 Manscaped.

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. Then Joe has opinions about the handball situation in One Thing We Learned.

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 move for Dele Alli.

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 Podcasts.

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 to Arsenal (it's my podcast, I'll do as much Arsenal as I like), Aouar, Milik, and Kluivert. Enjoy!

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 politicians or even your football club to demand specific commitments on tackling these problems. Whatever you've heard, sport has always been political, and governments and businesses can be forced to change their behaviour if we exert enough pressure.

66: Has Cancelling Ligue 1 Killed French Football?

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 Patrick agree that everyone else is stupid and wrong.  By the way, isn't it crazy that there are frozen pizzas called "Goodfella's"? Is that apostrophe enough to flummox copyright law? If you are a lawyer please let us know on Twitter how such a thing is possible.

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 leaving. Paper talk suggests they’re already targeting Valencia’s Ferran Torres as a replacement, but there are question marks over his experience. Next up is Barcelona’s interest in Tanguy Ndombele, who could be on his way out of Tottenham after falling out with Jose Mourinho. Could he be the man to complement Frenkie de Jong in the middle of the park? Finally, we do a quick yes/no round-up of the other major rumours including Kingsley Coman also to Barca, Luka Jovic to Arsenal, Jack Grealish to Everton, and what Atletico, Chelsea, and Man United might do in the market.

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.
