Premier League Kickoff

Jack: The Premier League is back!

Rich: It's only been a couple of months but it feels like ages since Manchester City won last season's Premier League title.

Jack: I know we haven't been short of football with the World Cup and everything, but it'll be great to see my team playing again.

Rich: It's nice watching the World Cup but there is something special when you are cheering for your team and the emotions you go through over the season.

Jack: You're up one week, down the next. Teams at the bottom beat teams at the top. The Premier League season is a real rollercoaster. 

Rich: Actually, ... I'm not sure if I am ready. Can I have another week on the beach?!

Jack: No!

Welcome -  Premier League Kick-off

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 what we would like to see in the Premier League this year. The language focus is on the word 'would' and how we use it. We are going to use it a lot in this podcast. Would you mind giving an example, Jack?

Jack: Of course, I wouldn't. I wouldn't mind at all. Erm ... I would like to see Arsenal win the Premier League this season.

Rich: Of course you would. So, that is the type of language we’re going to be looking at in this podcast - along with some crazy ideas for the Premier League this season.

Jack: Arsenal winning the Premier League is a crazy idea? Crazy?

Rich: No, of course, it isn't. Everyone should have hope at the beginning of the season!

Topic Focus 

Jack: So, the season is about to start. You probably know that I'm an Arsenal fan and Rich is a Liverpool fan so we're going to do things a little differently. We are also, of course, big fans of the Premier League. 

Rich: For a few minutes, we're going to forget the teams we support and tell you a few things that we would like to see happen this season that we think would make this season one of the best or most exciting ever.

...

Rich: What would you like to see happen this season?

Jack: I’m looking forward to seeing the three promoted clubs in action and I'd love to see one of them win the Premier League.

Rich: This season they are Wolves, Cardiff, and Fulham. Who would you choose to win it out of those three?

Jack: I'd go for Wolves. They look good, score a lot of goals and have some really good players. And they are called Wolves which is a really cool name!

Rich: It’d be brilliant for the Premier League if that happened, but I can’t see it. Although, all three promoted clubs stayed up last season so you never know ...

Jack: What about you, Rich? What would you like to see this season?

Rich: Manchester City were brilliant last season, but I would like to see a closer race for the title. I'd like to see six or seven teams near the top with just a few weeks of the season left. I would also like to see a dark horse like Wolves or Leicester or maybe West Ham up near the top, too. That'd be great and very exciting.

Jack: West Ham? Really? I wouldn't mind seeing that but I can't see it happening.

Rich: What about players? Who would you like to see do well?

Jack: I’d like to see some new Premier League stars. I'd love a young player like Marcus Rashford at Manchester Utd or Ryan Sessegnon at Fulham really tear up the Premier League.

Rich: Yes, that'd be cool. Wouldn't it be wonderful if it was a player that you haven't heard of yet? Chelsea fans are very excited about a 17-year-old called Callum Hudson-Odoi. Maybe he will be the star of the season. But, in general, I wouldn't mind watching the likes of David Silva, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, Paul Pogba and Eden Hazard doing their stuff every week. 

Language Focus

Rich: We’ve just been talking about things that we would like to see in the Premier League and we used phrases with ‘would’ a lot. Let’s look at three different ways of using ‘would’.

Jack: The simplest is probably would like plus the infinitive: I would like to see some new stars in the Premier League.

Rich: When we are speaking this is usually contracted and we say: I'd like to see some new stars in the Premier League. 

Jack: ‘Would like’ plus the infinitive is similar in meaning to 'want' but is more polite. You can replace like with ‘love’ if you feel more strongly about something.

Rich: I'd love Liverpool to win the Premier League.

Jack: I know you would! Another form we can use is a conditional statement. Rich said: It'd be brilliant for the Premier League if this happened. This is a really common form: It would be .. It would be great. It would be brilliant ... **??Notice that the verb happen is the past form in the if clause. 

Rich: A third way of using ‘would’ is in 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. I said: Wouldn't it be brilliant if it was a player that you haven't heard of yet?

Jack: This is such a common form that it normally gets contracted a lot. It sounds a lot shorter. How do you normally say it Rich?

Rich: I say Wunnit - or perhaps wudnit

Jack: Another phrase we used was wouldn't mind. This is commonly used as a request when we ask, for example, 'Would you mind opening the window?' or 'Would you mind getting some milk?'. However, we can also use them in statements and it can have a similar meaning to 'would like to'. Rich said: ' I wouldn't mind watching David Silva, Eden Hazard and Mohamed Salah every week'. 

Rich: This really means I would like to watch or I am happy to watch these players every week. Remember when we use 'wouldn't mind' it is followed by the -ing form: I wouldn't mind watching.

Jack: Finally, when we respond to something that could happen, short answers also often contain the word would. Rich said 'that'd be cool' in response to what I said and this is a common way to respond to invitations too. Would you like to go to the cinema? ... That'd be great/fantastic is a common response to an invitation you would like to accept.

Rich: We've got more activities and explanations to help you on the Premier Skills English page below this podcast.

Task - Would

Rich: Your task this week is to think about three things you would like to 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.

Rich: Here are three questions to help you with your answers:

Jack: Number one: Which teams would you like to see near the top this season?

Rich: Number two: Which players would you like to see do well this season?

Jack: Number three: If you could choose a team to surprise the rest, which would you choose and why?

Rich: Write your answers in the comments section at the bottom of this 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 kit clash. A kit clash is when both teams are wearing similar colours so one team has to change because it's difficult to know who is on which team.

Rich: Well done to Ahmed Adam from Sudan who was the only listener to get the right answer last week. It was a difficult one as Zaid from India told us. We like to give you all a difficult phrase now and again. What’s this week’s phrase, Jack?

Jack: This week’s phrase is ******* ********. This is a free game you can play on premierleague.com where you get £100 million to spend on a team of your choice. You are the manager and you play against other managers from around the world.

Rich: Good choice of phrase, Jack and a good chance to remind all of you that you can join the Premier Skills League in this game on premierleague.com. All the information is on the side of this page.

Jack: 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!

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. We often use 'would' when we talk about future possibilities. In the podcast, Jack and Rich used 'would' a lot.  Let's start at how 'would' was used:

Would 1

Would like + infinitive - we use this to talk about future possibilities and is also used as a more polite way of saying 'I want'. We often use the contraction 'I'd' when speaking and we might use 'I'd love to ...' if we want to add more emotion.

would like to see a closer race for the title.

I'd like to see some new Premier League stars.

I'd love a young player like Marcus Rashford at Manchester Utd or Ryan Sessegnon at Fulham to really tear up the Premier League.​

Rich would like to watch David Silva play every week.

Would 2

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 Wolves or another promoted team won the Premier League.

It’d be brilliant for the Premier League if that happened, but I can’t see it.​

Would 3

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 wonderful if it was a player that you haven't heard of yet?

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?

Jack thinks that Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon will become a Premier League star.

I would love to see United win the league this season.
It would be great if Alexis Sanchez could score 30 plus goals in the league and claim the Golden boot.
Wouldn't it be nice to see Martial in the United starting eleven, along with Sanchez and Lukaku?

Hey Rich,

The Brazilians fans expect a lot of Richarlison because Gabriel Jesus disappointed on Word Cup, and Richarlison is a good striker. About the Everton fans I don't meet other peoples, just my brothers.

Hi Daniandika,

Welcome to Premier Skills English. Here are a few things for you to think about:

1. Remember to use capital letters e.g. Arsenal, Mesut Ozil, Unai Emery etc.

2. In these conditional sentences, it is better to use a verb in the past in the 'if clause' e.g. ... if Mesut Ozil was ... and if Arsenal won the title ...

Thanks for your message and good luck to Arsenal this season!

Liverpool, Tottenham, Brighton & Hove Albion and Cardiff are the teams I would you like to see near the top this season. The first two teams have got the resources while the other two have to be inspired by Leicester City's sensational story.

If I could choose which players I would like to see do well this season, I'd simply pick the usual suspects, KDB, Erikson, Kane, Hazard, Aubamyang along with the Liverpool front three as well as the new singings, especially, Nabi Keita.

Wouldn't it be great if Cardiff City won the league? I don't know if a Welsh side has won the league title before, but I'm a hundred percent certain that no Welsh team has won it in the Premier League era. That'd be even a much bigger shock than that of Leicester City a couple of seasons ago.

Correct me.

What I would you like to see more from players this season is sportsmanship and fair play. I would like to see players stop diving because this usually results in the other team being robbed. Players shouldn't concentrate just on winning, but how to win. The problem is smaller teams are often victimised and that leaves their managers and fans fuming after they feel they've done enough to win all three points to only end up sharing or even losing the points. Cheating is definitely not a good thing.

I'd like to see the officials not being affected by the home fans, instead being brave to take and taking strong decisions. For instance, if there was a slight contact in the box, then the home supporters would shout for a penalty even if it was a dive. Fans are sometimes putting too much pressure on match officials. Another thing I'd also like to see from the officials is they should be very decisive on penalising players who put too much aggressiveness aggression into tackles. This puts not only footballers careers in danger, but also their lives too.

I'd also love to see new and creative ways in which the fans express and show their support for their teams. Liverpool fans are genuine supporters and by far the best in the PL, I'm not saying this because I'm a Liverpool fan, but this is well-known all across the globe. Having just said that, now wouldn't it be great if Liverpool fans came up with something similar to the Viking clap? It would indeed!

Wouldn't it be brilliant if managers of big teams were not so to insert too much many defensive tactics into games? I think too much this defensive attitude has ruined the game and has led to more defensive football becoming trending these days. Sitting deep and depending only on counterattacks is not something nice to see and on many occasions that has resulted in ugly or undeserved wins, this is not what the beautiful game is about stands for.

I did a little bit of research and I found out that I had misunderstood too things. The use of the conjunction 'and' as well as the use of the form 'not only... but also". Here's what I've come up with from this research. If you think I've missed something please let me know.

First, 'And' always connects SAME parts of speech plus sentences & phrases of SAME grammatical tenses. For example, and after your corrections, 'this defensive attitude (has ruined) the game AND ((has) led) to more defensive football these days.' It was clear that I tried to connect a present perfect clause with a past simple clause using the conjunction 'and. Hopefully, this won't happen again!

Secondly, I knew that the form 'not only....but also' does exist. However, when you crossed out the word 'also' twice, that confused me a bit. Fortunately, it helped me to figure out why you had done so. I shouldn't have used both 'also & too' in the same phrase. Just one of them or even delete them both!

Now what can I say? Words are powerless to express my gratitude.

Correct me, please.

If I could support another PL side, I wouldn't hesitate to back Tottenham. Why? Well, there are a number of reasons. The Spurs squad itself, their style of football, and Tottenham's home strip.

First, Spurs have got a pretty good squad which is very young and talented. In every position of the pitch there's at least one player to keep an eye on. For example, lloris in goal, Vertonghen at the back, Erikson in midfield and Kane up front. This is not found in the majority of the EPL teams including my team Liverpool.

Another thing reason why I would be a Spurs fan is the style of football they play. It's a high-paced, beautiful football based on pressing high up the pitch and that's my favourite! The way in which they play the game is simply pleasing on the eye.

Moreover, the Spurs squad contains some world class footballers meaning not only beautiful football would be guaranteed, but also magic too. I wouldn't mind watching some games for Spurs Spurs games every now and then to enjoy some end products of their trio and (rephrase this as it's a bit confusing) some masterpieces from Erikson.

Finally, we were just talking about football kits last week and I've just remembered the design of the Spurs home strip which is very beautiful. A plain white shirt with some highlights in blue, pretty much my sort of thing!

Rephrasing: to enjoy the fantastic work of their front three.

It's a bit difficult for me to understand why you omitted the article 'the' in the last sentence of paragraph two, please explain if it's not too much trouble. The other correction are absolutely clear.

Thank you our beloved teacher. please do!

I deleted it as you are talking about multiple teams. If you were talking about the league as a whole it would have been fine. You could have said either 'this is not usually found in the EPL' or 'this is not usually found in most Premier League teams'.

Thank you teacher Jack & teacher Rich for this brilliant podcast and apologies for coming around very late!

Although it wasn't a difficult one, I have a feeling that I've already missed the football phrase shout-out in the upcoming pod, but I'm gonna through in my guess anyway. It's.... '******* ********' Hope the podcast boat hasn't sailed already!

I would like to see at the top of the Premier league this year the two teams of Liverpool's city and of course I'd love if Liverpool won the Premier League for first time.
It'd be fantastic if Newcastle United fought for the Premier League title until the end of the season because I wouldn't mind seeing this team beating the top Premier league teams.

I think they've made some great signings. Alisson was an important signing and Naby Keita should also make Liverpool more difficult to beat this season. Shaqiri is also someone who can come on and change a game. I'm really looking forward to seeing Liverpool challenging Manchester City. Hopefully, we can start with a win today!

Hi Samo, welcome to PSE and just let me tell you that you'll never walk alone because there are a lot of Liverpool fans around!

Indeed we'd love to see the Reds do better than last season. However, winning a trophy of some sort would be brilliant, it's been long time since the League Cup win

I would like to see Liverpool with a new goal keeper in their squad.

I wouldn't mind if Mahrez teared up Manchester City in the Champions League.

Wouln't be exciting if it was a Welsh club that will win the Premier League title.

This season I will also support the Citizens for their hiring of the Algerian winger Mahrez in addition to the Gunners.

I would like to see this season more players from around the world in the PL championship.

Hi Elghoul. That's what all Liverpool fans are hoping for, a world class keeper. I'm not sure the Reds would notch up some silverware if the board didn't strengthen that position.

Actually i think it is a banger for Liverpool,other big teams wanted to sign him but Liverpool have got him.I think he is the best keeper to step in the pitch since Riena has left the team,I really liked how the fans supported Karius when he came in last week versus Torino,Classy fans.

I would support everton as it is recovering from a low fall in the league. I would like the players
were more creative when it comes to playing football. Of the fans, it only remains to tell them to support them in all the club's matches. Manajer, be more effective when proposing positions with his new squad of players
