Miguel Delaney joins host Tom Bowles and Adam Drury – standing in for resident tipster Alan Alger – for episode 23 of the Betway Insider Podcast.


The football journalist – who writes for ESPN and several other publications – discusses:

  • Why Tottenham’s defeat to Monaco in the Champions League is not just down to their temporary move to Wembley.
  • Whether Leicester City’s victory over Club Brugges was really a continuation of their Premier League title-winning ‘fairy tale’.
  • If the Foxes performance will reinvigorate their domestic campaign.
  • What he means when he says the Champions League has become a ‘two-tiered’ competition.
  • Why winning the Champions League does not have the same sense of quest as it did during the nineties.
  • Pep Guardiola and how his main objective before he leaves Manchester City is to make them more like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
  • Why City supporters should finally embrace UEFA’s elite club competition.
  • Whether the Premier League should do more to help English clubs in Europe, as Jose Mourinho suggested this week.
  • How suited Leicester and Tottenham are to navigating both competitions.
  • The insight he gleaned into Antonio Conte’s training methods – and how he was spared having to actually do them.

  • Whether he is surprised at the egos in Chelsea’s dressing room buying into Conte’s methods so readily.

  • How a post-Euro 2016 hangover is stopping most clubs from being at their peak just yet.
  • The work Ronald Koeman has done at Everton and what Shane Long’s camp told him about the Dutch manager.

Miguel also talks about his life as a football journalist in Quick Questions, while Alan – via Adam – reveals his Wise Al predictions and bet of the weekend.
