Premier League Kick-off

Premier League Kick-off

In this week's Premier Skills English Podcast, Jack and Rich talk about the new Premier League season which kicks off on the 11th of August. They speak about the teams that they would like to win the Premier League, the teams we should keep an eye on this season and some young players who could make an impact. The language focus is on different ways to use the word would when we speak about hopes and dreams. We also look at some of the phrases we use when we think someone's dreams are a little unrealistic. We would like to hear from you, too - don't forget to tell us what you would like to happen this season! Write your hopes for the season in the comments section at the bottom of this page. As always, we also have a new football phrase for you to guess. Enjoy!

Introduction 

Jack: It’s here! At last! After 2 long months and 22 days more the Premier League is back!

Rich: I know and I can’t wait for the talking to end and the action to start!

Jack: But, we’re not playing, we’re going to carry on talking.

Rich: You know what I mean ...

Jack: This week’s podcast is going to be all about the start of the new season and some of the things that we hope to see this season!

Rich: What about my team doing the double over your team - Arsenal. That would be a good start ...

Jack: Yeah, yeah … we’ll see about that …

Welcome - New Season

Rich: Hello my name’s Rich

Jack: and I’m Jack

Rich: and welcome to this week’s Premier Skills English podcast

Jack: Where we talk about football and help you with your English.

Jack: What’s happening this week, Rich?

Rich: In this week’s podcast, we’re going to talk about the big kick off; the start of the new Premier League season. We’re going to talk about some of the things that we would like to see this season and we’re also going to focus on some language that will help you speak about football and many other things.

Jack: That’s right. This week’s language focus is on different ways of saying what you would like to see happen and different phrases we use to respond to someone’s hopes depending on whether they think their hopes are realistic or not.

Rich: I’d like to see Liverpool win the Premier League this season.

Jack: You’ve got to be dreaming if you think that will happen. You’re living in cloud cuckoo land!

Rich: Yes, Jack that is the type of language we’re going to be looking at but you don’t have to crush my dreams right at the start of the season!

Jack: Sorry, yes. Liverpool, like everyone else, are in with a shout.

Rich: We’ll look at those phrases and a bit more in this week’s podcast.

Topic Focus - New Season 

Jack: So, the season is about to start let’s talk a bit about what we would like to see this season. Let’s start with the teams we’re looking forward to seeing in action.

Rich: As always, I’m looking forward to seeing the three promoted clubs in action. 

Jack: This season they are Newcastle United, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Huddersfield Town. Newcastle, of course, are returning to the Premier League after just one season away, but Brighton and Huddersfield are in the Premier League for the first ever time.

Rich: It’s especially brilliant for the fans of these two new Premier League clubs and it would be amazing if they could get some wins early in the season. That would give them confidence for the rest of the season. Any other teams you’re looking forward to watching?

Jack: Well, apart from my team, Arsenal, I’m looking forward to seeing Everton play this season. They’ve signed lots of new players, including Wayne Rooney from Manchester Utd.

Rich: Yes, a lot of pundits or football experts are picking them as their dark horse this season. I’m looking forward to watching Manchester City. I think they have improved their defence and will score lots of goals.

Jack: So, who do you think will win this season? 

Rich: It would be brilliant if Liverpool won the Premier League.

Jack: Well, it would be great for you and Liverpool fans. I, obviously, think it would be great if Arsenal won the Premier League. Let’s think of some things that everybody would like to see.

Rich: Everybody loves an underdog. Leicester City was an amazing story a couple of seasons ago. Who would you like to see surprise the Premier League this season?

Jack: Wouldn’t it be great if Huddersfield or Brighton could do the same as Leicester?

Rich: It would be amazing but I can’t see the same thing happening again. But you never know!

Jack: Wouldn’t it be brilliant to see a young player who nobody knows do well?

Rich: Yes that’d be cool, it’s great to have well-known players like Paul Pogba, Eden Hazard and Sergio Aguero in the Premier League, but there’s something special when a new young player does well. Do you know any young players that we should keep an eye on?

Jack: I know that he’s playing for a top club in the Premier League but I think it would be great to see Gabriel Jesus at Manchester City as top scorer this season. He’s only 20 years old.

Rich: I would like to see more of the Egyptian winger Ramadan Sobhi at Stoke City. I think he’s a very exciting player and he’s only 20. Sobhi is a player to keep an eye on. His Egyptian teammate Mohamed Salah at Liverpool is another player to keep an eye on.

Jack: And I would like to see Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette bang in the goals for Arsenal this season. Away from Arsenal, I think Swansea’s Tammy Abraham could surprise a few. He’s on a season long loan from Chelsea and looks like a good player. He’s just 19 years old.

Language Focus / Task - Would

Rich: We’ve just been talking about things that we would like to see in the Premier League and we used phrases with ‘would’  or ‘would like’ a lot.

Jack: But we often changed the phrase a little bit because if we say would, would like, would like all the time it becomes very boring.

Rich: We used three forms of ‘would like’.

Jack: The simplest was would like plus the infinitive: I would like to see Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette bang in the goals for Arsenal this season.

Rich: You can also say: I would like Liverpool to win the Premier League.

Jack: Another form was a conditional statement. Rich said: It would be brilliant if Liverpool won the Premier League. This is a really common form. Notice that the verb win is the past form in the if clause. 

Rich: The third form we used was a question, but it’s not really a question. The meaning is more like a sentence, but it’s a bit like a question tag - it’s an invitation to agree with us. So Jack said: Wouldn’t it be brilliant to see a young player who nobody knows do well? 

Jack: When you’ve finished listening to the podcast, have a look at the activities and explanations of these expressions on the page.

Rich: Then, we want you to think about your task for this week. We would like you to think of three things that you would like to see happen in the Premier League this season.

Jack: And in each answer, you should use a different way of using the word ‘would’ in your answer. Just like the examples that we used in this podcast.

Can you work out this week’s football phrase?

Rich: Have you got a football phrase for us this week? 

Jack: Yes, I have, but first, last week’s football phrase. The phrase was capacity crowd. This means that an event, like a football match, has sold all its tickets and there are no seats left - it’s a sell-out. There will be capacity crowds at football stadiums across the country for the new season.

Rich: And what’s this week’s phrase, Jack?

Jack: This week’s phrase is a **** *****. The phrase means a team that has an outside chance of winning a competition and might surprise a lot of people.

Rich: Nice. I used this phrase when describing Everton earlier in this podcast. Is that too much of a clue?

Jack: Probably. Right, that’s all we have time for this week! Don’t forget to write your answers to our questions and make a guess at our football phrase in the comments below.

Rich: Bye for now and enjoy your football!

Vocabulary

How much did you understand?

In the podcast, Rich and Jack used some words and phrases that might be new for you. Do you know the words in bold?

What about my team doing the double over your team?!

A lot of pundits are picking Everton as their dark horse this season.

There were a few more tricky words and connected to hotels in the podcast. Do you know what they all mean? Try the activity below, then, listen to the podcast again to hear how we used the words. This can really help your understanding.

Activity 1

Activity 1: In this activity, try to match the words and phrases to their definitions. All of the words were in this week's podcast.
Can you match the words to the definitions?

Is Nemanja Matic dreaming of the Premier League title again this season?

Language

Hopes and Dreams - Using 'Would'

In this week's podcast, Jack and Rich spoke about some of the things that they would like to see happen this season. When we talk about our hopes and dreams we often use the word 'would'. In the podcast, Jack and Rich used 'would' a lot. They used it in three different ways. Let's start with the simplest.

Would like + infinitive - we use this to talk about hopes and dreams and can also be used as a more polite way of saying 'I want'.

would like to see Liverpool win the Premier League this season.

I would like to see Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette bang in the goals for Arsenal this season.

A conditional statement - sentences divided into two parts (often with 'if' in one part of the sentence), one part states the condition and the other part states the action that occurs if that condition happened.

It would be great if Arsenal won the Premier League.

A rhetorical question - this is a type of question that is not meant to be answered. They are usually used to make a statement.

Wouldn’t it be brilliant to see a young player who nobody knows do well?

Take a look at the next activity. All the sentences include 'would'. Can you choose the right words for each gap?

Activity 2

Activity 2: In this activity, complete the gaps with the appropriate word from the podcast.
Can you complete the gap with the right word?

Brighton are playing Premier League football for the first time this season.

Language

Reacting to unrealistic hopes

Sometimes, when someone tells us about a hope or dream we think it's unrealistic - that it will never happen. This happened in the podcast when Rich said that he would like to see Liverpool win the Premier League. Look at this section from the podcast:

Rich: I'd like to see Liverpool win the Premier League this season.

Jack: You've got to be dreaming if you think that will happen. You're living in cloud cuckoo land

The phrases that Jack used in response were used to say that Rich was being unrealistic. These phrases are usually used to say that something is impossible or that you strongly disagree with the chances of something happening. It is usually informal language and often idiomatic. You should be careful when responding with this language as it might also be impolite. Here are some similar phrases that Jack could have used:

  • You've got to be joking! Liverpool have got no chance!
  • Liverpool win the Premier League? And pigs might fly!
  • Liverpool winning the league? Fat chance of that this season!
  • Liverpool? The Premier League title? That'll be the day!
  • There's no way Liverpool that Liverpool can win the league this season!

Have a think about how these expressions are used and/or look them up in an online dictionary. Have a go at using them in the comments section at the bottom of the page.  

Huddersfield Town are playing Premier League football for the first time this season.

Task

What three things would you like to happen this season?

In the podcast, Rich and Jack spoke about some of the things they would like to see this season in the Premier League. Can you tell us three things that you would like to see this season? In your answers, we would like to see you use the three different ways of using 'would' that we spoke about in this podcast.

  • would like + infinitive
  • conditional statement
  • rhetorical question

Hi Kakarotho

Welcome to Premier SKills English! It's great to have a fan from the US on the website - maybe you'll be able to point out some of the football vocabulary differences between British and American English. Do you say football or soccer?

There isn't much to correct in your answer. As our comments section is quite informal you could try using contractions (!'d, we'll etc.). Also, I'd have written something like: ... every game is spectacular instead of all games are spectacular

For this Premier League season I hope seeing Mahrez staying in the same League even if he will be moving from Leicester.

It would be brilliant if Arsenal got the title.

I would be happy if Son can do like he did in the last season end.

**** ***** is the guessed football phrase.

"Correct me.

Yeah, it's back and even started with a bang, as we saw 7 goals in only one game yesterday! That was just the beginning! Let's hope it will continue like that!!

Firstly, I would love to see Liverpool playing the most devastating football ever seen in the PL sliping teams apart with lots of goals including my favourites - long-range goals.
Secondly, it would be fantastic if Liverpool won the PL, despite the Blues and the two Manchester clubs being the favourites. Actually, I haven't been able to see my club winning the PL, because the last time they won it was back in 1990, at that time I wasn't even born!
And finally, wouldn't it be great if The Reds signed a world-class defender? or just let me say a "bargain" to strengthen our back-line which appeared to be Liverpool's biggest problem.

Hi Ahmed Adam

I fully agree with you about the need for a defender. I've just watched Liverpool concede an injury time equaliser to Watford in a 3-3 thriller! Your English is nearly perfect in your comment. I've just highlighted three things I'd like you to change. Red is vocabulary and blue is tense.

Right, I need to get back to the football :)

Spending on defence more than several countries did I would like City to concede less goals, to score more from the created chances and, of course, to win the Premier League. I also would be happy if City qualified to the Champions League semifinals and I'll be over the moon if City and Spartak Moscow are in the same group! Actually, it will be tough to choose any of the sides if that happens.
I hope to visit Etihad this season to enjoy the pre-match atmosphere in Manchester and to see my favourite team alive.
I'll definitely keep an eye on relegated Hull City (have already watched their game against Villa), wholeheartedly hoping they will be able to promote. As for the PL's teams - I wonder what football are Brighton and Huddersfield going to show us. Speaking about players - I'd like to watch Hart, Zaba and Rooney are doing well in their new clubs.

Hi Shobonenok

I've actually predicted that City will win the Premier league this season! I'm sorry to tell you but with my prediction skills that probably means that they will finish fifth! 

If you get to the Etihad this season, send us some photos and we can add them to your article :)

Don't be so shy of your prediction skills! I'm sure that they are better than you can even imagine! Finally, what place will be taken by Arsenal if City finish fifth? :)

Oh no! A disastrous start to the new season for me!! Thanks for letting us know, Liubomyr. I've added the asterisks so, hopefully, it won't have been noticed by too many listeners. What do you think to Watford's chances this season? I've actually predicted that they will go down this season. Sorry!

I would love to see Lukaku excel very well this season and to perform during the big as he is touted not to shine during big games

Do you think he's a good replacement for Zlatan?

Can't really say so he has abilities and zlatan has his too.
Am sure he can bang in some 25 goals if he receives the right services.
