Listen to Neil talking about Coventry City Football Club and why he's a loyal supporter.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.



Language level

When I open the page, it shows "xml config loading error" message instead of the excercises.
Browsers used and tested: IE6, IE8, FireFox 3.5.
Any suggestions?

Hi Lieto,
Sorry to hear you're having problems. Does the error message show only on this page or with all of our exercises?

 I support Tigers that is one of the Japanese baseball teams. Tigers always lose but has a lot of fan. Even if the team lose games, we hope that the team will be champion next season. I have the same writer's opinion. I like the phrase that supporting a team's like being part of family, sharing the same dream, desire and disappointments.

Hello everybody. i'm from Mexico and i love foot ball. my english favourite team is Man U because there is a great mexican player there. In my country, there are some pretty teams. I support a big team called Cruz Azul. it's been the best team lately. although we weren't win a cup lately.. we've been in 5 finals in the last 3 years and i think this year we're going to be champions. Finally, i love England. one day, i'm going to live there. in London i guess.

My favorite team is Manchester because of Ji sung Park. His from korea and I'm from korea too, but after I read this article, I prefer another team then  Manchester.

I don't support the strong team that always wins. Usually I would support a weaker team because there is a lot of joy and satisfaction when the underdog wins. Thank you.
