DF: You are listening to’s football-language podcast. Welcome everyone to the podcast for all lovers of the beautiful game of football who want to improve their English-language skills. My name’s Damian and on this Easter weekend,  I’m in a very sunny London and looking forward to all of the football this Easter weekend. Now I was unable to make the podcast last weekend as I was at a teaching conference in Leeds in the north of England, while this week my colleague Damon is away from the podcast microphone so it’s just myself today.
