Weekly football phrase (audio and text) – English for Football

Men against boys

This week’s English for Football expression is the phrase men against boys. In football, this refers to when one team is much better than another team mainly due to the fact that they have more experience, thus, men against boys. It can also refer to the gulf, or gap, in class between the two sides. So, last night’s Champions League semi-final second leg at The Emirates was described by the British media as being a game of men against boys as the more experienced Manchester United easily defeated the inexperienced Arsenal team. Men against boys.
