Daniel Harris  joins host Tom Bowles and resident tipster Alan Alger in the studio for episode 22 of the Betway Insider Podcast.

The SJA-nominated sports writer - who is also an author and has co-directed his first film - discusses:

  • Why Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola have been so understated during their first few months in Manchester.
  • Whether Mourinho is a quick-fix at United compared to what Guardiola is trying to accomplish at City.
  • Whether the Special One will trust Marcus Rashford, both in Saturday's derby and throughout the season.
  • The professional and personal reasons as to why he is revelling in Rashford's rise - plus some kind words for Kelechi Iheanacho.
  • Sam Allardyce's curious comments over Wayne Rooney's performance for England against Slovakia.
  • How long Rooney can realistically maintain his place in the United and England side. 
  • His mixed feelings towards Paul Scholes, who criticised the Premier League while promoting his new Class of 92 book.
  • How he became a United fan despite being born and raised in London.
  • His favourite United player - and the one who he thinks is the most underrated.
  • The difference between writing about football and cricket - and his thought process on writing this remarkable piece before last year's Ashes series.
  • House of Flying Arrows, the darts film he has just co-directed.

In addition to revealing how non-league football perceive the Class of 92 and Salford City, Alan attempts to record back-to-back Wise Al wins and gives his bet of the weekend - with all profits going to the English Federation of Disability Sport.
