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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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 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...

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...

Strap yourselves in - it's a big one this week! Patrick van Straaten is joined by Dougie Critchley and Sam Obaseki to run their fingers over the Ballon D'Or rankings. They take a look at the top 15 names and play a simple game of higher or lower - do Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci deserve their spots? Has Romelu Lukaku actually had a better 12 months than Erling Haaland? What on earth are Kevin De Bruyne and Cristiano Ronaldo doing so high up? Then they get on to Jorginho in third...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Then they talk Liverpool v. Manchester City, arguably the best Premier League game in a very long time, with Phil Foden, Mo Salah,...
