First, in the main report section, Damian spotlights five of the greatest FA Cup finals in recent English football history . After that, in our regular English for football section, we introduce the football phrase ‘to be out of their hands’. In the last section of the show, we finish with our predictions battle, which this week includes vital games in the Premier League, such as Tottenham going to Stoke, and the FA Cup final. We also have games from Italy and Spain – with Milan against Roma a particular highlight.
