Showboat

Learn English Through Football Podcast – Showboat and Play to the Crowd: Welcome everyone to this short football language podcast. My name’s Damon and today, I’ll be talking about two phrases you might hear in football – to showboat and to play to the crowd. I heard both of these phrases when I watched Manchester City versus Arsenal play behind closed doors just after the Premier League restarted during the COVID-19 crisis. They are both connected with players acting in some way.
