The gang get back together for a classic episode of Extra Time, as Patrick van Straaten, Joe Thomlinson and Chris Hamill work out how to fix Leicester City. After analysing their season to date, the first question concerns the manager - should Brendan Rodgers stay in charge? Once that’s settled, they work their way from back to front, initially working out a replacement for Kasper Schmeichel - could Bernd Leno be available? Alessio Romagnoli and Lisandro Martinez are touted as potential centre back options as Jonny Evans remains in the physio’s room, but midfield is the big one. With Wilfred Ndidi injury-prone and Youri Tielemans on the way out, the trio set their sights on Ligue 1. Is Renato Sanches a good fit for the side despite his injuries, or how about Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara. Should Ademola Lookman’s loan be made permanent, or are there better options further afield, like Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze? This episode is just like the old days. Enjoy!

I said that I said Pookie would never score goals, and he did which means I've said wait will which means he won


But just one player you really sink your talent into yeah, there's always a squeeze all the all the chat out


That is not one player that's like everybody who's just played in the group chat immediately gets reamed out by Tom Linson


Well today we're gonna be taking a look at Lester because obviously it's been a really weird season for Lester


I think we all went into this campaign pretty confident about them having a better year last year


Okay, they played a lot worse than they had the previous two seasons, but they'd had a ton of injuries


It looked like they should be getting back to their best


They brought in some clever business in Sumerian Pax and Dacca, but halfway through the season
