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.
