Jack: Hello my name’s Jack and welcome to this week’s Premier Skills English podcast.

Rich: Hi everyone. I’m Rich and every week we talk about football and help you with your English.

Jack: So we’ve got a slightly longer podcast for you today because we’re going to announce the winner of last week’s competition and Rich has something new.

Rich: Yes, the new Premier League season starts this weekend; each week, I’m going to make a prediction... but I’ll talk more about that later.

Jack: So, the big kick off is here. There’s so much to look forward to.

Rich: Yes, it’s been a quiet summer, but it’ll be wall to wall football for the next 9 months in my house.

Jack: Yes, in mine too! So, what are we going to talk about this week, Rich?

Rich: Well, last season, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard took the honours as best player in the Premier League and Tottenham’s Harry Kane was the biggest Premier League surprise, so we’re going to take a look at three players. These are our tips about players that we think are going to have a great season.

Jack: Tip’s an interesting word - it’s normally money you leave at the end of a meal for the waiter or for a taxi driver or someone like that, but it can also mean something different. What did you mean, Rich?

Rich: The word tip can also mean a small bit of advice or information that is usually given by an expert.

Jack: So are you the expert Rich?

Rich: I did say ‘usually’ Jack! Let’s move on to the players to watch out for this season.

Jack: Alright, our first tip arrived in the Premier League in one of the biggest transfers of the summer.

Rich: Yes, Bastian Schweinsteiger moved from Bayern Munich to Manchester Utd and is one of the biggest names in world football.

Jack: In 15 years with Bayern he won 8 German titles and 7 German Cups and also won the Champions League.

Rich: And he helped Germany lift the World Cup in Brazil last year.

Jack: I think he’s just going to have a major impact on Man Utd’s midfield and the Premier League.

Rich: Impact Jack. What do you mean?

Jack: To have an impact on something means to have a powerful effect on something. And any team with Schweinsteiger in it will be improved, Man Utd is going to have a much better season with him in the centre of the pitch.

Rich: Right... our next tip is Willian at Chelsea.

Jack: Willian is your choice Rich, why have you picked him over bigger names at Chelsea like Hazard, Costa and Fabregas.

Rich: Well,  I think last season Willian started to show what a great player he is. He has great skills but also works hard for the team. I think we might start to see him play more centrally this season and I think his electric pace will cause Premier League defenders all kinds of problems.

Jack: We use the word ‘pace’ a lot when we talk about football. What does it mean?

Rich: It’s a noun to describe how fast a player is. So you can say Willian has got great pace. Did you know that he’s the fastest player at Chelsea?

Jack: No, I didn’t. That’s interesting - it’ll be good to see him in action this season. Our final tip for a player to watch this season also has great pace.

Rich: And he’s the most expensive English player ever, after moving from Liverpool to Manchester City in the summer.

Jack: I think Raheem Sterling is going to have a great season.

Rich: Tell us why Jack.

Jack: He’s got something to prove. He’ll want to show the world how good he can be after a difficult season last year. I also think by playing alongside David Silva and Sergio Aguero at City, he’ll create loads of goals!

Rich: When you say someone has something to prove what do you mean?

Jack: Well, it means that you feel that you need to show people how good you are at something.

Rich: And there you are, we think Willian at Chelsea, Schweinsteiger at Manchester United and Sterling at Manchester City are going to have great seasons, but who are your tips to have a great season. Let us know in the comments section below.

Jack: Right, as the season is about to kick off, we have a new section in our podcast. Each week Rich will talk about one Premier League match. Your job is to spot the vocabulary that we have spoken about already and let us know in the comments section if you agree with his prediction.

Rich: My first prediction of the season is the match between Stoke City and my team - Liverpool. This is a rematch of the final game of last season when Stoke beat Liverpool 6-1! I don’t expect the same result and I think it will be much closer this time. Liverpool will have something to prove to the fans and they won’t want to start this season in the same way they finished last. Both teams have seven new players in their squads and all of them will want to have an impact on the game, but I think it might be Liverpool’s new striker Christian Benteke who has the biggest impact on the match. My tip for this match is a final score of Stoke City 1 - 2 Liverpool.

Jack: How good are you at predicting things Rich?

Rich: Not very, but we’ll see how it goes.

Jack: Right, it’s time to announce the winner of last week’s competition.

Rich: We talked about Norwich City’s return to the Premier League. Norwich have a great nickname; they are called the Canaries so we asked you leave a comment below the podcast with the other teams in the Premier League with birds for nicknames.

Jack: And the answers, of course, were The Magpies (Newcastle Utd), The Swans (Swansea City) and The Eagles (Crystal Palace). Some of you suggested the Liver bird for Liverpool and Cockerels for Spurs and these were almost right as they are on the club badges, but they are not their nicknames.

Rich: Well done to everybody who got it right and congratulations to Manchester United fan VerdMead96 from Poland who is the winner of a Premier League shirt! The shirt is on the way!

Jack: If you’re listening to this on itunes or elsewhere, come back to Premier Skills English for some language activities, a quiz and lots more. You can find us at www.britishcouncil.org/      .

Rich: Don’t forget if you sign in, you can score points to see if you can get your club, your country and your name to the top of our leaderboard.

Jack:  Bye for now and enjoy your football.

It was a long time ago and actually, I didn't follow that season. I have no idea about it. However, being a player who is expected to perform well sometimes isn't that good. The pressure makes some players do not perform as well as used to be. Sometimes, being an underdog and just playing nothing to lose is better. Single-player sports and team sports are very different in many ways. Many great players in a team aren't always better than a team with less famous players. Teamwork and supporting system are also important.

Hi Rich, hope you are fine, too. I will see that in the following podcasts, but I'm sure that you're the expert. Here we have a game about football which we called (promosport), I don't know the exactly English translation. It's a sheet of paper with 13 matches to predict the results (containing the British premier league and European matches sometimes), we need to put (1) or (2) or (x) and the winner who predicts right all the 13 matches, He wins a percentage of money gained in that week!

Thanks for your confidence in my predictions smiley. There is something similar here in Spain too, it's called 'La Quiniela'. There used to be something similar in the UK called 'The Football Pools', but I don't think it exists anymore even though it used to be very popular.

Hi gilbers51, Thanks for your comment, we're really happy you like the website. 'Wall to wall ' is an idiom and like many idioms can often be difficult to understand. It means something that can be seen everywhere or that is happening all the time.

I want to say something about prediction for this gameweek. I think that Jack was this week best predictor (he was predict 1:1). Definitely I was worse. I was disappointed with this game. That was an unattractive football on the both side. Only one thing was brilliant, fantastic shoot and goal by Coutinho.

I think Jack's prediction of a draw would have been a fair result as there was little difference between the teams. However, Liverpool won and as you, VerdeMead96, (and of course myself) all predicted Liverpool victories, I think these were the better predictions :)

We were better predictors in the case who will won the game, but Jack's was closer to predict final score.
Undoubtedly Coutinho had biggest impact on the final score. What you think about Firmino?

First of all I would like to thank Jack and Rich for organising the competition. To be honest I never expected I would win but I am very happy that the fortune has smiled on me this time :) Big thanks also go to Rema for sending congrats. With reference to the podcast I agree with you, that Schweinsteiger may be the key player for Man United this season. He was always my favourite German player, one of my role idols and when he actually joined The Red Devils I was extremely happy. If the injuries do not haunt Bastian during the season he may solve all the problems United had in the midfield for a long time and help the team to finish the league at least in top 3. I also expect Benteke to have a great season in his new club. He has already shown in Aston Villa how fantastic player he is and I am sure he can become even better in Liverpool and score about 20 goals in the league. Finally, I am very happy to see Yohan Cabaye in the Premier League again. He may be a great leader of Crystal Palace's midfield and with his skills and creativity The Eagles can finish the league even in top 10. If we talk about the match I think that Liverpool is going to win. The Reds will want to make their fans forget about this horrible defeat last season and with the new great players like Clyne, Firmino and especially Benteke they can win at the Britannia Stadium. I predict 3-1 for The Reds.

You're welcome. Thank you too. West Ham have one terrific opening day. They beat Arsenal 2:0 on the Emirates after nine consecutive league defeats. First goal bring us Kouyate with a header and second scorer was Argentinian Zarate with shoot from outside of box. I expect a lot of French midfielder Dimitri Poyet who is great assistant. Also I would love to say: Reece Oxford had the game's highest passing accuracy (95%), lost possession just once and made two blocks and three interceptions with only 16 years (he is the second youngest player who had start in one Premier League game).

Before I start to answer I want to congratulate to winner of this competition.

I think that will be similar with previous season, that Hazard going to have major impact on Chelsea play.
Maybe Rony would be key player for Manchester United this season. Also I was watching Depay only at once, when Holland was played against Spain and I was impressed. Maybe he can do something like Harry Kane was do last season. We will see what he can do and he anyway must to prove that he is fantastic player. Also I agree with you guys, This three players are amazing and also premier League is full of fantastic players but also one great player abandoned Premier League few days ago. It's about Di Maria.
Charlie Austin was played terrific last season and his goals will be missing me this season in Premier League.
I'm also not good predictor, but I can try.
This is beginning of League and it's hard to make good prediction.
I love to watch attractive football, with a lot of goals, so let it be 3:2 for Liverpool.

That's very generous of you Rema. Well done for getting the competition puzzle right. Can't wait for the first matches tomorrow. Let's see if you're right. Stoke are very strong at home so I'm not as confident as you and Rich about Liverpool's chances.... I'm going to predict 1-1.

Maybe you have right Jack, Stoke is very strong at home, but we will see what gonna happen. I don't understand what you mean when you say this in podcast: " Your job is to spot the vocabulary that we have spoken about already and let us know in the comments section if you agree with his prediction." Do you mean on: to prove something to someone, pace, tip,to have an impact to or you mean something else?

Yes, exactly. The idea is that when you listen to my prediction, you'll also hear the vocabulary that we've been speaking about earlier in the podcast. By hearing the vocabulary in context, it hopefully becomes easier to use the words.

I understand almost everything. I can't catch what Jack mean with the end of the sentence: "if you agree with his prediction"? Is he mean, if I agree with you that result on the game will be 2:1 for Liverpool, that I can to write this vocabulary in the comments section?
