Learning Vocabulary - Football Kits

Learning Vocabulary - Football Kits

In this week's Premier Skills English Podcast, Jack and Rich are talking about football kits. Rich has a new Liverpool shirt, but Jack prefers an Arsenal hat and scarf to the shirt. The language focus is on words and phrases we use to describe football kits: the colours, patterns, and designs can sometimes be quite complicated to explain. Your task is to design your perfect football shirt. As always, we also have a new football phrase for you to guess at the end of the podcast. Enjoy!

Transcript

If you found the listening difficult, you can read the transcript and listen at the same time.

Opening

Jack: What’s that you’re wearing, Rich?

Rich: It’s the new Liverpool kit, isn’t it? It’s just out!

Jack: Hmmm. Red like last year, I see.

Rich: Yeah, yeah. Anyway, you’re an Arsenal fan, your kit is red, too.

Jack: Yeah, I know. I’m just teasing you. To be honest, I have an Arsenal scarf and I might have a hat and gloves somewhere but I haven’t worn the shirt for years.

Rich: I get one every season. This one's got a nice collar. 

Jack: It looks good. You’re all ready for the new season then?

Rich: Definitely. I think it’s going to be a good one.

Jack: Just a quick question.

Rich: What?

Jack: You’re not going to come to the office in the full Liverpool kit all season, are you?

Welcome:

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 are talking about football kits and going to look at some of the language we use to describe them. 

Jack: We will focus on difficult colours, patterns and accessories. There is actually quite a lot to learn.

Rich: Oh and don’t forget to listen to the end of the podcast because we have a new football phrase for you to guess.

Topic Focus

Jack: So, you’ve got the new Liverpool kit, I see. All red. I’ve got a challenge for you. I’m going to describe a Premier League kit and you’ve got to say what club it is, OK?

Rich: Great, let’s go.

Jack: The shirt has plain black sleeves with black and yellow stripes on the main body.

Rich: Stripes? Southampton play in stripes but they are red and white … Newcastle?

Jack: Newcastle. They play in black and white stripes, don’t they? 

Rich: Alright, then it must be one of the new teams. Is it Wolves?

Jack: No, they play in all gold … they call it old gold. I think it’s a kind of orangey yellow colour.

Rich: Right. Is it a home strip or an away strip?

Jack: It’s a home shirt but it looks a bit different to last season. Do you want a clue?

Rich: Yes, please. 

Jack: The kit looks like their nickname.

Rich: That’s not much of a clue. Liverpool are called the Reds and their kit is red?

Jack: It’s a better clue than that, it’s an animal.

Rich: Have Crystal Palace got Eagles on their shirts? That’d be cool!

Jack: No, it’s not a bird but it does fly.

Rich: Not a bird but it does fly? Let me have a look … I’ve got it ... Watford, the Hornets.

Jack: That’s right. Hornets are like wasps or bees and Watford’s home strip this season is yellow and black stripes.

Language Focus 

Rich: So, in this podcast, we're talking about football kits.

Jack: We’re looking at the language you need when you're describing football kits. Mostly, it’s straightforward, but there are a few phrases that are quite tricky.

Rich: It’s not just Liverpool are in red and Manchester City are in blue. 

Jack: Yes, some of the colours are difficult and there are some fiddly bits of language that we can help you with.

Rich: Let’s start with the colours. Which teams play in red?

Jack: Easy. Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal...

Rich: What about blue?

Jack: Chelsea, Everton, Leicester City ...

Rich: What about Man City?

Jack: Yep, they play in blue, too.

Rich: That’s when we have a change. Manchester City’s blue is much lighter than the others but we don’t call it light blue, we call it sky blue. 

Jack: And, if you take a look at Tottenham and Arsenal’s away shirts this season, you will see that they are both navy blue, which is a very dark blue.

Rich: Arsenal and Spurs in the same shirts. That’s a surprise.

Jack: They are a bit different though because Tottenham’s shirt has light blue sleeves and Arsenal’s has a purple stripe across the front.

Rich: Stripes are quite common on football shirts. Newcastle Utd play in black and white stripes and Southampton play in red and white stripes.

Jack: These are vertical stripes because if the stripes are horizontal on a football shirt we don’t call them stripes, we call them hoops.

Rich:  In the UK, Celtic, in Scotland, are probably the most famous team to play in hoops. 

Jack: Yes, they play in green and white hoops.

Rich: Back to the colours … we’ve mentioned red and blue but there are some more difficult colours too. In the roleplay, we said that Wolves play in gold which is a shade of orange.

Jack: And Burnley and West Ham both play in claret which is a shade of dark red or burgundy.

Rich: This phrase ‘a shade of something’ is useful if you’re not sure about an exact name for a colour.

Jack: The colour on the sleeves is often different to the rest of the shirt.

Rich: The sleeves are the part of the shirt for the arms and yes, you’re right, they often have a different design or colour or maybe a trim on the ends.

Jack: The trim is the end of the sleeve or the edge of the fabric. If you look at Newcastle Utd’s new kit, for example, you will see it has a white trim.

Rich: Collars are the part of the shirt that goes around the neck and you can have different types of collar too. The new Liverpool shirt has a polo shirt collar while Manchester Utd’s has a v-neck collar.

Jack: Some of the language is easy and some of it is more difficult. We’ve got more for you to learn on the website page below this podcast.

Task

Rich: Your task this week is to design a football shirt. 

Jack: We want you to tell us what your perfect football shirt would look like.

Rich: Will it have stripes or hoops,? what colour will it be? will there be different colours on the sleeves?

Jack: What will the collar look like? Will it have buttons or will it be a v-neck?

Rich: Write all your descriptions in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

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 pre-season friendly. The World Cup is over and the Premier League hasn’t started yet but the players are back in training. So, how do they get match practice? They play lots of pre-season friendlies.

Rich: Well done to Nicoresh and Liubomyr from Ukraine, Ahmed Adam from Sudan, Richard J from Ecuador, Kwesimanifest from Ghana, Buchiy from Japan and Zaid from India.

Jack: This week’s football phrase is *** ***** and it’s very much connected to the topic of this week’s podcast. If there is a *** *****, one team has to change the shirts that they are wearing because the colours the teams are wearing are too similar which makes it difficult for the referee and players to recognise each other. This is usually why teams have an away kit or sometimes even a third strip to avoid *** ******* happening on the pitch.

Rich: 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.

Jack: 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?

It’s the new Liverpool kit, isn’t it? It’s just out!

Is it a home strip or an away strip?

The kit looks like their nickname.

Yeah, I know. I’m just teasing you.

There were a few tricky words 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.

Activity 1

Language

Colours

Jack and Rich spoke about the colours of some Premier League shirts. Have a look at the sentences below and try to visualise the colour they are talking about.

Burnley and West Ham both play in claret which is a shade of dark red or burgundy.

Wolves play in gold … they call it old gold. I think it’s a kind of orangey yellow colour.

Manchester City play in sky blue, Chelsea play in dark blue and Arsenal and Tottenham's new away kits are navy blue.

If you are not sure what the colour of something is, you can use phrases like; 'a shade of blue/red/green' or a 'kind of yellow/orange colour'.

There are lots of shades of some colours; especially red, blue and green, and we often just say 'dark blue' or 'light red' but sometimes we use terms such as 'sky blue' which is a very light blue or 'navy blue' which is a very dark blue.

Sometimes you might also hear -y or -ish added to a colour, too. Something can be 'an orangey yellow colour' or a 'reddish-brown' or a 'bluey-green'.

West Ham's new signings show off the Hammers' new home and away STRIPS.

Patterns

Jack and Rich also spoke about the patterns on some Premier League shirts.

The shirt has plain black sleeves with black and yellow stripes on the main body.

In the UK, Celtic, in Scotland, are probably the most famous team to play in hoops

The most common pattern on football shirts in the Premier League are plain shirts which are all one colour and used by teams such as Manchester City, Manchester Utd and Liverpool.

Stripes (vertical lines) are also common and used by teams such as Southampton, Crystal Palace and Newcastle. Other patterns include hoops (horizontal lines), which are worn by teams such as Celtic in Scotland, or a diagonal sash across a shirt that is on Crystal Palace's away shirt and the Peru National team's shirt. 

Do you know any other patterns on team shirts? Are there different patterns on team shirts in your country?

Everton's new signing, Richarlison, models his new kit, which has a diamond graphic on the SLEEVES.

Designs

It's not only colours and patterns that make on football shirt different from another, Rich and Jack also spoke about some other design features. Look at the sentences below, do you understand the words in bold.

I get a new Liverpool shirt every season. This one's got a nice collar.

Newcastle Utd’s new kit has a white trim on the sleeves.

The new Liverpool shirt has a polo shirt collar while Manchester Utd’s has a v-neck collar.

I've been watching the Spanish league teams' football kits for this season. I liked the away strip of one of them whose shirt has red, green and white stripes and the collar has laces.

A lot of people like the Croatia national team’s shirt and I like it too. The red and white squares are a great design.

Goalkeepers also have their own kit. I like when they wear shirt, shorts and socks all in green. I guess they don't want to be seen by forwards.

I think this week’s football phase is “Kit Clash”.

That's all. Is it all correct?

It has a white v-sash across the red front shirt. Shorts are white also. Socks are white with a red trim. Every Algerian who loved football in the sixties knows that is just the kit the great Lalmas who died this last month has been wearing with number eight at his back.

Correct me please.
I don't have any premier League 's shirts, but I've a lot of Cruzeiro's shirts (my Brazilians team) I own 4 shirts. I have a Brazilian team shirts too.

My top five premier league's kits 2018/2019 is: 1st Wolves home, 2nd Chelsea home, 3rd Fulham home, 4th Arsenal away and 5th Liverpool home.

In my country there are some different patterns, like Cruzeiro's shirt, it doesn't have a team shield's team in the chest, just five stars they represent a constellation called Cruise South.

My design shirt's design is blue, sleeves white, u-collar and all letters white too.

I don't know the football frase this week, maybe in the next.

Correct me.

First I have to admit that I'm not a good designer. Anyway, let's start with the main body. This must be a plain white. There's obviously no reason for that, I just like this colour.

Now the sleeves. This is my favourite part and since I do not prefer it to differ from the main body, so my design will be plain white, LONG sleeves with a nice blue trim.

Finally, the collar. I really like shirts with quite big collars along with a couple of buttons. Not sure this will suit football shirts though, but let me add my own touches! Here I'm going for a blue collar.

As you can see now, the whole shirt is white with brilliant highlights in blue!

I've owned a couple of football shirts so far. One is for Al-Hilal SC, the team I support in our domestic league. The shirt is a plain blue with a white v-neck collar and it's got the number 4 at the back as well as THE Samsung logo on the chest, very much similar to Chelsea's home strip though. The other one is an orangey-yellow numberless RM shirt which I bought almost four years ago. However, it's only a matter of time before I put on that Liverpool shirt you're talking about teacher, Rich. Nice collar design there!

My favourite football shirt is that of the Seria A side, Fiorentina. I like it because of its pleasing plain violet colour along with the beautiful club badge and the TOYOTA logo ON the front makes it even more appealing. From my perspective, the design of that shirt is simply fantastic! I've many times visited the sporting kit sports store MANY TIMES, but it's a pity that I still couldn't hunt it out HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND IT.

There are a number of different patterns on team shirts in our country including those mentioned in the podcast. Moreover, there are also other patterns too, such as, dots, clouds, waves, etc. All in all, plain shirts are the most common

Hi Ahmed Adam,

I also really used to like the Fiorentina shirt. I think it was because there was no English team that wore purple and Italian footalll was really popular in the UK in the early 90s. A striker called Gabriel Batistuta played for them - he was brilliant!

I've made a couple of corrections to your comment above.

How interesting!

Batistuta? I heard of this name before. However, I used to watch some of their games when they played the big boys in Seria A. Adrian Motto and Juan Manuel Vargas were their star players at the time I used to watch those games.

Thanks a bunch teacher for your assistance. It's really helpful. Please keep it coming.

Batistuta? I heard of this name before. However, I used to watch some of their games when they played the big boys in Seria A. Adrian Motto and Juan Manuel Vargas were their star players at the time I used to watch those games.

Thanks a bunch teacher for your assistance. It's really helpful. Please keep it coming.

What if a team's kit doesn't have any stripes or hoops, like Croatia's home kit in the World Cup.

Hi Zaid,

Exactly. Croatia's shirt is taken from its flag, isn't it? What would be the best way to describe the pattern?

Sorry for butting in! Seems like Croatia's national football team kit has created a stir here. I don't know, 'squares' also does sound odd to me. I'm looking for a Croatian fan to crop up soon and tell us something about it.

This design is very cool and famous, other different kit is Netherlands home, all orange. Do you know why it's orange? Netherlands flag doesn't have orange, but the kit is very cool.

Can we consider it as the combination of hoops and stripes? Not sure, but we call it checks here in India. And checks shirts are quite common here as formal and informal wear.
P.S: answer for the football phrase - If there is a '***** of *** colours' and to avoid 'confusion' on the pitch. I don't know if my answer's right or wrong but one thing I must say, that this week's football phrase is confusing in the way how it was presented.
