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.

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.

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.
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.

How Worried Are We About The Premier League's Big Teams?
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.
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.

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!
