Dave O'Brien joins host Tom Bowles and resident tipster Alan Alger in the studio for episode 21 of the Betway Insider Podcast.

The football analyst - who appears on the Front 3 podcast and fronts Dave Talks on YouTube - discusses:

  • Which Premier League sides did the best business in the transfer window.
  • Why clubs that freeze and force unwanted players out is bad both morally and financially.
  • The Arsenal player Lucas Perez is an upgrade on and why Arsene Wenger should play 4-4-2.
  • The tactical changes Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho have made at Manchester City and Manchester United.
  • How Antonio Conte might use David Luiz at Chelsea.
  • The reason why Wayne Rooney is still a first-team regular for Manchester United and England.
  • Marouane Fellaini's remarkable transformation as United's outstanding holding midfielder.
  • His disappointment at the players Sam Allardyce selected in his first England squad.
  • Who Allardyce needs to select in order for the Three Lions to play to the manager's strengths.
  • How the introduction of stats has changed how pundits - and supporters - talk about the game.
  • What is needed for a stat to be meaningful or insightful.
  • Which platform out of Twitter, YouTube and podcasting is the most conducive to providing the best analysis.

Alan, meanwhile, attempts to start his Wise Al title defence with a win, and also reveals which very worthy cause his profitable bet of the weekend will this season be donated to.
