English Through Football Podcast: 2019-20 – Madrid Derby. It’s the 2019-20 Madrid derby which should be a cracker! We’ll discuss some of the language that featured in that game along with some of the other big games frm the weekend. We explain the terms, ‘to swoop for‘ and to ‘walk the league‘ and we’ll also feature a football language quiz question connected with derbies. We also take a look at the football news stories from last week, including Klopp ‘disrespecting the Cup’ among others.
