Transcript of the show
DB: You are listening to Languagecaster’s football-language podcast. Hello everyone. My name is Damon and I’m talking to you from Tokyo as typhoon number 18 makes it’s way up the Japanese island chain – grey and rainy at the moment but not too windy in Tokyo. Damian, how are you and how’s the weather in London?
DF: I’m good Damon. Hope the typhoon doesn’t hit and everyone there is safe. London is a bit grey with some sun around with no typhoons!
Apologies to our listeners for not being on the show over the past two weeks – first I was in Paris and then last week in Ireland. I have been watching lots of football though, I was in Dublin last week to see Ireland unfortunately lose 0-1 to Serbia in their World Cup qualifier and then earlier this week I was back at Wembley to watch Spurs beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the first of their Champions League group matches. A thrilling encounter beween two top sides.
DB: Sounds good. OK, what’s on the show today?
