Today’s English for Football expression is ‘replay‘, which usually collocates with the word ‘cup’ as in the phrase ‘FA Cup replay‘ and means an extra game played to decide a drawn match in a knock-out competition. Many countries no longer use the replay system preferring to finish the cup match on one day by using extra time or penalties but in England and Scotland the replay is still used – although limited to one game. This week saw many FA Cup 3rd Round replays take place in England with Man United defeating West Ham and Arsenal beating Swansea to qualify for the 4th Round where they hope they won’t be taken to a replay by Fulham and Brighton respectively. Replay.
