163: This Summer's Best Forward Signing Is...

A brand new episode of the Extra Time podcast? Go on then. On this week’s episode, Patrick van Straaten is joined by Zac Djellab and Henry Hill to cast their eye over the three big Brazilian attackers on the move this summer. Henry thinks Richarlison’s move to Spurs could turn into one of the best transfers they’ve made in recent years. Are Barcelona right to sign Raphinha? Zac kinda just sits on the fence, probably wishing the Leeds man was going to sign for his beloved Chelsea instead. Then of course, Patrick gets to talk Arsenal following their signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City - is he simply perfect for the Gunners, and does the number of goals he scores matter? Tune in for all that and more this week. Until next time - and hopefully we won’t keep you waiting as long for another episode.

161: How Can Arsenal Fix Their Attack?

It’s Patrick van Straaten and Chris Hamill on the podcast this week, as Patrick gets to dedicate another show to Arsenal Football Club. This time though, it’s a look at their attack, as Mikel Arteta’s side face an uncertain summer. As it stands, they’ll have no natural strikers come August, so the first question is about whether or not Alexandre Lacazette has earned himself a new deal. Then there’s who they might bring in - Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo are the two names being majorly linked with the Gunners, but the likes of Tammy Abraham and Ivan Toney also get mentioned. And what about the future of Emile Smith Rowe - is his Arsenal future in doubt? Enjoy!

160: Where Will Football's Biggest Free Agents Go?

► SUBSCRIBE to FOOTBALL DAILY PODCASTS: https://bit.ly/2W5ICxU ► SPOTIFY: https://spoti.fi/30bG0Q7 ► APPLE: https://apple.co/2KaVq0K This week on the podcast, Patrick van Straaten is joined by Joe Thomlinson and Henry Hill to discuss where some of football’s biggest free agents might land. No Kylian Mbappe talk, as he is inevitably off to Real Madrid, but might PSG find a replacement for free? Paulo Dybala is confirmed as leaving Juventus, so could move to France, although Manchester City have also been linked. Apparently Franck Kessie to Barcelona is all but confirmed, but where does he fit in that midfield - does Xavi need to sell someone? Then there’s new rumours that Juve are the front runners for Antonio Rudiger, whilst the likes of Andre Onana and Jesse Lingard could also find themselves without a club come July. They round off the pod with some Frank Lampard chat - it’s not got off to the best of starts, has it? Enjoy!

159: What's Next For Chelsea? ft. Nizaar Kinsella

It is a special one this week, as Zac Djellab takes the reins for a discussion all things Chelsea alongside our very own Dougie Critchley and special guest Nizaar Kinsella. It’s mostly a discussion about what is next for the club after Roman Abramovich put the Blues up for sale - who’s in the race and how might they be run in the future? There’s the consortium led by a Swiss billionaire who has no experience in sport, Chelsea fan Nick Candy and his group of investors, as well as the Saudi Media Group, who have no connection with the same regime that bought Newcastle United last year, none whatsoever, absolutely nothing, honest! There’s also the possibility that the new owners haven’t even been mentioned yet, and regardless, how it could spell the end for the likes of Marina Granovskaia in West London. There’s no doubt about it - this is your ultimate Chelsea situation debrief. Enjoy!

158: Why A Premier League Giant Are Favourites For Relegation

Patrick van Straaten is this week joined by Chris Hamill to take a look at the mess that is the Premier League relegation battle. At the time of recording, there were five teams who were nervously looking over their shoulder as well as the three currently occupying the drop zone, although Leicester City’s win over Burnley on Tuesday proves they were never in danger. The pair condemn Norwich City and Watford to the Championship for next campaign, but who will join them? Newcastle United are the only in-form side in the bottom half, so they should be safe, right? Brentford are sliding and sliding, whilst Leeds United can’t stop anyone scoring against them - they’re on pace for 90 goals conceded this season. Burnley always seem to pull something out the bag, and Everton…well, Frank Lampard’s side couldn’t actually get relegated, could they? It’s an actual possibility. Enjoy!

157: Which Players Deserve An England Call-Up?

After last week’s heated debate, it only made sense to bring Patrick van Straaten and Henry Hill back together for this week’s episode. Joined by the supposedly-Scottish Dougie Critchley, the trio cast their eye over the England squad ahead of the squad announcement next month. Or rather, they took a look on the edges at who Gareth Southgate could be looking to introduce into the Three Lions set up. Do Wolves’ Max Kilman and Brighton’s Adam Webster deserve a nod over the ever-improving Fikayo Tomori? In midfield, Henry backs James Ward-Prowse and Conor Gallagher over Aston Villa’s Jacob Ramsey, despite his recent impressive form. And going forward, should Tammy Abraham be called up again, or does West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen finally get that phonemail after being one of the Premier League’s form players in recent weeks? Enjoy!

156: Who Is The Worst £100M Signing?

It’s a spicy one this week as Patrick van Straaten is joined by Joe Thomlinson and Henry Hill to rate every single £100M transfer. There’s only eight of them (says Wikipedia), and the list is as follows: Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho, Joao Felix, Romelu Lukaku and Ousmane Dembele. Will the trio really rank the three of those that joined Barcelona as the three worst big money moves? Has Joao Felix been a success at Atletico Madrid? There’s a heated debate about the impact of Mbappe and Neymar both on and off the field for PSG - if they win the Champions League season, do they fly up this list? Oh, and if you’re wondering where Eden Hazard is, it was apparently an £89M transfer before bonuses - not that he’d be anywhere other than bottom of this definitive list. Enjoy!

155: Should Manchester United Drop Harry Maguire?

► SUBSCRIBE to FOOTBALL DAILY PODCASTS: https://bit.ly/2W5ICxU ► SPOTIFY: https://spoti.fi/30bG0Q7 ► APPLE: https://apple.co/2KaVq0K On this week’s episode, Henry Hill is joined by his main men Dougie Critchley and Sam Obaseki to cast their eye over the last few days in football. They start with Manchester United’s draw with Burnley, and discuss whether or not Harry Maguire should be dropped for a short time, despite being club captain. Then it’s off to Newcastle, who have climbed out of the relegation zone. Henry compares their first window to that of Chelsea and Manchester City under their new ownerships - is it on a similar level? They round up the episode off with some West Ham chat (not that) after David Moyes once again proclaimed Declan Rice as a £100M. Quite simply, is he? How much would you pay for him? Enjoy!

154: How To Fix Leicester City

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!

153: Who Can Replace Sadio Mane at Liverpool?

Just the two on this week’s episode of the Extra Time podcast, as Patrick van Straaten and Dougie Critchley discuss what could be next for Liverpool - and more importantly, the future of Sadio Mane’s position. Not that Mane is close to being finished at Anfield by any means, but at some point Liverpool will have to look to the future and find a replacement. A lot of Bundesliga names are discussed, including Christopher Nkunku and Moussa Diary, as well Porto’s Luis Diaz. Premier League players Jarrod Bowen and Raphinha also come up in conversation, but with Harvey Elliot, does Jurgen Klopp already have the perfect person waiting in the wings? Enjoy!

152: Europe's Strangest Title Races

► SUBSCRIBE to FOOTBALL DAILY PODCASTS: https://bit.ly/2W5ICxU ► SPOTIFY: https://spoti.fi/30bG0Q7 ► APPLE: https://apple.co/2KaVq0K This week on the podcast, Henry Hill is joined by his Continental Club buddies Dougie Critchley and Michael McCubbin to cast their eye on some of the less-spoken about title races around Europe. After they kick off the episode with some Everton and Manchester United chat, they ask if Sevilla can mount a title challenge and how long it will be until Inter pull away in Italy. Then there’s the more bizarre ones, as newly-promoted Union St. Gilloise lead the way in Belgium, Ajax have conceded just four goals but are second in the Eredivisie, meanwhile none of Turkey’s big clubs are anywhere to be seen in that title race. Any more leagues we should be focusing on? Let us know in the comments section!

151: Who Will Win The Africa Cup of Nations?

On this week’s podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Zac Djellab and Sam Obaseki and is all about this year’s Africa Cup of Nations. Despite Zac’s allegiance to Algeria and Sam’s to Nigeria, the trio have a considered chat about the big teams this time around, including hosts Cameroon, as well as Ghana and Ivory Coast. Henry thinks Mali might be a dark horse, whilst Chelsea insider Zac reveals what he knows about Hakim Ziyech and his absence from the Morocco team (spoiler: not much). After predicting a tournament winner, they then discuss their favourite kits at this year’s edition, giving shout-outs to Cape Verde, Mauritania and Sierra Leone. Enjoy!

Is there any room for Arsenal to improve, and have Spurs still got another gear to reach? Will West Ham’s squad depth come back to haunt them? They also discuss Ralf Rangnick’s Man Utd side, but the consensus is they will not be eating at Europe’s top table come August.

This week on Extra Time Pat van Straaten is joined by Zac Djellab and Henry Hill to hand out Football Daily's alternative awards for what has been a crazy year in the world of football.. Was Harry Kane's botched transfer to Manchester City one of the most embarrassing moments of 2021? Were Arsenal the biggest underachievers once more?And does Emmanuel Dennis really deserve to be considered one of the signings of the season? All that, plus much much more, including why mighty David Moyes might just be the manager of the year!

First they dissect Marcel Brands' departure from the club and take a look at his transfers over the past three years - are any other than Lucas Digne been good moves? Then they chat about owner Farhad Moshiri's running of the team, and whether or not Rafa Benitez is a good fit for the side. Then it's the fun part - who should Everton buy? Enjoy!

146: How Steven Gerrard Can Fix Aston Villa

It's an old school episode of the podcast today as Joe Thomlinson, Chris Hamill and Zac Djellab debate how they can fix Aston Villa. After discussing the various issues under Dean Smith, the trio identify who they would want to take over at the club (this was filmed literally hours before Steven Gerrard was confirmed), and which players the incoming manager should target. William Saliba, Joachim Maelhe and Renato Sanches all come up - would they improve the side at all? It's a really insightful discussion, honest! Enjoy!

145: REVEALED: Arsene Wenger's Biggest Regret With Arsenal

On this very special episode of the Extra Time Podcast, Michael McCubbin chats to Christian Jeanpierre, director of Arsene Wenger: Invincible, to discuss the making of the film and Jeanpierre’s experience of knowing Wenger since his early days managing in France. From his upbringing in rural Alsace, to his courageous stint in Japan and the scepticism that greeted his arrival at Arsenal in 1996, Invincible covers a lot of ground that casual fans may have otherwise not known about. But his glory years at Highbury are also well documented, with Patrick Vieira, Ian Wright, Thierry Henry and even Sir Alex Ferguson laying bare their experiences with Wenger in the early late 90s and early 2000s. Wenger also reveals his biggest regrets as Arsenal boss. Should he have left North London sooner? How did the move to the Emirates effect him? And how did he cope with the pressure of the UK press? Invincible is out in UK cinemas on November 11th, and is available on other platforms from November 22nd.

144: The Premier League Managerial Merry-Go-Round

On this week's podcast, Henry Hill is joined by Chelsea TV's Zac Djellab and the lesser-spotted James Waine to discuss the current managerial merry-go-round. Nuno Espirito Santo? Gone! Steve Bruce? Gone! Dean Smith and Rafa Benitez? Going...or staying? Then of course the ins - Antonio Conte has arrived at Spurs and will presumably be taking the big office off Fabio Paratici's hands, whilst Newcastle don't seem to have any plan behind the scenes. Unai Emery said no (wisely), so could Eddie Howe be on the way in? James even proposes a return to the Premier League for Sam Allardyce. Surely not? It's all a very fluid situation. Enjoy!

143: Do Manchester United Really Need To Sack Solskjaer?

On this week's episode of the Extra Time podcast, there's only one thing they can really talk about. Patrick van Straaten is joined by Sam Obaseki and Michael McCubbin to talk all things Manchester United, and chiefly, is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the right man for the job? If he does go, who should be his replacement? Sam likes the idea of Brendan Rodgers, whereas Michael plumps for Mauricio Pochettino. Of course there's been talk of Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane too, but could Erik Ten Hag be an outside choice for the role, and how is managing Ajax different to stepping out at Old Trafford? It's a fun one, and as always, a great chat. Enjoy!

142: Is Mohamed Salah Really Worth £400k per Week?

In this weeks Extra Time podcast Patrick van Straaten is joined by Sam Obaseki and Henry Hill to discuss whether Liverpool legend Mohamed Salah is really worth the £400k per week contract he is asking for! He will be 34 by the time he deal he wants ends, so is it really worth the expenditure? They also discuss Raheem Sterling's world class credentials, debate whether West Ham are now the 4th best team in the Premier League right now, and reveal if Patrick actually likes anyone at Football Daily..

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

125: Why These Major Summer Transfers Failed

Football Daily are delighted to announce that this episode of Extra Time is sponsored by Fan Team. Bet £20 and get £20 money back as a free £20 bet if first bet wins, or loses - http://fanteam.co/fd-promo - Users must be 18+. T&C’s apply. On this week's podcast, Dougie Critchley is joined by Chris Hamill and Sam Obaseki to run through a few transfers we expected to happen but have fallen through at the last minute. 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!

124: Picking The Ultimate EURO2020 Squad

Football Daily are delighted to announce that this episode of Extra Time is sponsored by Fan Team. Bet £20 and get £20 money back as a free £20 bet if first bet wins, or loses - http://fanteam.co/fd-promo - Users must be 18+. T&C’s apply. On this week's podcast, Chris Hamill and Joe Thomlinson sit down to build their dream EURO2020 squads - within a budget of course. 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!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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).

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.

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.

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 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.
