I've brought Rebecca some flowers. Rebecca.

0:00:500:00:53

Rebecca! What are you doing?

0:00:530:00:56

I am trying to get fit, Sid, but I don't feel it.

0:00:560:01:00

Well, I brought you something.

0:01:000:01:02

Is it a comfortable bed for me to sleep in?

0:01:020:01:05

-Uh... No, it is a beautiful bunch of...

-Flowers? For me?

0:01:050:01:10

Oh, they're lovely!

-Thanks, Sid.

0:01:270:01:31

I'm trying to do some exercise and it's a bit...

0:01:310:01:35

Oh, right, yes, I see.

0:01:350:01:38

Oh, hold on.

0:01:380:01:39

Sid, you can't put my lovely flowers in the bin.

0:01:420:01:46

Oh, well, we haven't got anything else.

0:01:460:01:49

-Well, we need to at least...

-Oh!

0:02:460:02:48

Look, there is the dressing up room.

0:02:480:02:51

# Let's play. #

0:02:510:02:54

So, what are we going to play?

0:02:540:02:56

Let's find out.

0:02:560:02:58

So, a princess dress, a top hat...and skis?

0:03:020:03:07

I don't think so. Let's try again.

0:03:070:03:09

Well, now this time, I've got on a football shirt,

0:03:150:03:20

shorts and a pair of boots.

0:03:200:03:22

So what do you think we are playing today? Of course!

0:03:220:03:26

We are playing footballers.

0:03:260:03:28

So, what do we need to know? Let's find out.

0:03:280:03:31

During a football match, a whistle is used to get

0:03:330:03:37

the attention of the players or to stop the game.

0:03:370:03:40

Footballers often eat a fruit snack at halftime to give them

0:03:400:03:43

an energy boost for the second half.

0:03:430:03:45

If there is a foul, footballers sometimes take a penalty,

0:03:450:03:50

where they try to kick the ball past the goalkeeper.

0:03:500:03:53

Players can try and trick the goalkeeper by pretending

0:03:530:03:56

to kick the ball one side and then making it go the other way.

0:03:560:04:01

OK, so that is what we need to remember.

0:04:010:04:03

And do we need anything else?

0:04:030:04:05

A bunch of bananas?

0:04:100:04:11

I wonder what these are for. Well, I'm sure they will come in handy.

0:04:110:04:16

Let's go.

0:04:160:04:17

Sid, can you guess what we're playing today?

0:04:190:04:22

You're going to be a weightlifter?

0:04:220:04:24

-Eh? No! We're playing footballers. Goal!

-Footballers?!

0:04:240:04:29

Oh, I'd love to play footballers. You're so lucky! Well, have fun.

0:04:290:04:33

-I will. See you later.

-OK, see you.

0:04:330:04:36

Footballers!

0:04:360:04:38

Now, what am I going to do with these?

0:04:380:04:40

Come on, let's play footballers.

0:04:420:04:45

Woo-hoo!

0:04:480:04:50

Oh!

0:04:500:04:51

Whoa!

0:04:520:04:55

# Let's play! #

0:04:550:04:57

So, where are we?

0:04:590:05:00

CHEERING

0:05:000:05:02

Oh, wow, there's a stadium! Listen, sounds like there is a big crowd in.

0:05:020:05:07

There must be a game on.

0:05:070:05:10

Champions!

0:05:100:05:13

# Here we go, here we go Here we go! #

0:05:130:05:16

Come on, you Blues!

0:05:160:05:18

-Hello. I'm Rebecca.

-Oh, hello, very nice to meet you.

0:05:210:05:24

Are you here for the match?

0:05:240:05:26

-Yes. Are you the referee?

-The referee? Ha-ha-ha!

0:05:260:05:31

Oh, you mean because of the whistle? No, I'm just a fan of the Blues.

0:05:310:05:35

-Is this where the Blues play?

-Yes, this is where they play.

0:05:350:05:39

Are you a Blues fan?

0:05:390:05:40

Yes. Well, actually, I think I'm playing for them today.

0:05:400:05:43

Playing? For the Blues?

0:05:430:05:45

The mighty Blues? I didn't realise. I did not realise.

0:05:450:05:49

-Do you like the Blues then?

-Oh, yes.

0:05:490:05:52

Go on, ask me a question about the Blues, anything you like.

0:05:520:05:56

OK. Um... When did the Blues last win the championship?

0:05:560:06:01

That was in 1947.

0:06:010:06:03

John Brown scored the goal, a penalty, and then he went home

0:06:030:06:06

and had crumpets and peanut butter for his tea.

0:06:060:06:09

-Wow, you do know a lot about the Blues.

-I do indeed.

0:06:090:06:13

-I better get going.

-I know everyone who's ever played

0:06:130:06:16

for the Blues. Would you like to hear?

0:06:160:06:19

Oh, I really would, but I should be getting on.

0:06:190:06:21

Here we are, first team, goalkeeper Gromit, Basselworth,

0:06:210:06:25

-Hoskins Junior...

-I should really...

-..Hoskins Senior,

0:06:250:06:29

Jones, Brandige...

0:06:290:06:31

-OK, bye, see you!

-..Benson and Brown.

0:06:310:06:35

There. Oh, she's gone.

0:06:350:06:39

Oh, hold on, she didn't go that way, did she?

0:06:390:06:43

Oh, dear, that is the wrong way.

0:06:430:06:46

That is the supporters' entrance, she should have gone that way,

0:06:460:06:49

the players' entrance.

0:06:490:06:51

Oh, well, I'll have to go and find her.

0:06:510:06:55

Excuse me! Hello?

0:06:550:06:58

-Excuse me, is this seat taken?

-Eh? Oh, no, go on, you're all right.

0:07:010:07:06

Oh, thanks very much. Oh, the game, it's started.

0:07:060:07:10

-Are we winning?

-One all.

0:07:100:07:13

-Eh?

-They've scored one goal, we've scored one goal.

0:07:130:07:18

Oh, right.

0:07:180:07:19

-Nice outfit.

-Oh, thanks. It's my strip.

0:07:190:07:23

-I think I'm playing today.

-Ha-ha, right.

0:07:230:07:26

Well, I hope you're good. We need to win this game.

0:07:260:07:29

If we win this game, we win the championship,

0:07:290:07:32

-and we haven't done that since...

-Don't tell me, 1947.

0:07:320:07:37

You do know a lot about football, don't you?

0:07:370:07:40

Oh, you know, you pick things up.

0:07:400:07:43

Oh, no! One of our players is injured.

0:07:430:07:45

That's it, you're on.

0:07:450:07:47

Oh, uh, right. Oh, OK.

0:07:470:07:50

Great! Well, see you. Bye!

0:07:500:07:53

Right-oh. Score us a goal!

0:07:530:07:56

WHISTLES

0:07:560:07:58

Hello! Mr Manager! Hoo-ey! Up here!

0:07:580:08:03

Ah, there you are.

0:08:030:08:06

-Hello again.

-Oh, hello.

-You went the wrong way.

0:08:060:08:10

This is where the fans come when they want to watch the game.

0:08:100:08:13

You are a player.

0:08:130:08:15

Yes, I know, but I am trying to tell the manager down there

0:08:150:08:19

so I can get onto the pitch, but he can't hear me

0:08:190:08:21

above the noise of the crowd. Hello!

0:08:210:08:24

-Hoo-ey! Hello!

-Hello, Mr Manager!

0:08:240:08:27

Excuse me!

0:08:270:08:30

Oh, no, it's no good, he can't hear either of us.

0:08:300:08:34

What am I going to do? I need to get on to the pitch to play.

0:08:340:08:37

How can I make him hear me?

0:08:370:08:40

Oh, I know. I remember, do you?

0:08:400:08:42

During a football match,

0:08:420:08:44

a whistle is used to get the attention of the players.

0:08:440:08:47

We need a whistle!

0:08:470:08:49

Oh, you can borrow mine.

0:08:490:08:52

SHE BLOWS THE WHISTLE

0:08:520:08:54

My, that is loud!

0:08:540:08:56

Hello, who's that?

0:08:560:08:59

It's me, Rebecca, I need to get on to the pitch.

0:08:590:09:02

-How do I get down?

-There are some steps over there.

0:09:020:09:06

Oh, OK, thanks. Coming!

0:09:060:09:08

-Thanks for the whistle.

-No problem, glad to have been of service.

0:09:080:09:12

Now you go out there and play and win for our team!

0:09:120:09:16

I will. Coming!

0:09:160:09:18

Good lad, off you come. A doctor will look at your foot.

0:09:200:09:23

Off you go. Early bath now. Good lad.

0:09:230:09:25

Good lass, come here. I want you to play in the centre.

0:09:250:09:28

Watch out for the lad with the moustache. Remember,

0:09:280:09:31

early balls out of the wings. OK? Off you go.

0:09:310:09:34

Right, OK, great, yeah. Wish me luck.

0:09:340:09:37

And here she comes, Rebecca is on for the Blues.

0:09:370:09:41

Thank you! Thank you so much!

0:09:410:09:43

And listen to the reaction of that crowd.

0:09:430:09:46

-Ha!

-Oh, who is this?

0:09:480:09:50

Hello.

0:09:500:09:51

I will shake hands with you at the end of the game,

0:09:530:09:56

when we have won and you have lost.

0:09:560:09:58

Then I will shake your hand.

0:09:580:10:01

-Oh.

-I am Manuele Maldini,

0:10:010:10:04

the greatest footballer to ever play for the Reds.

0:10:040:10:07

I am good at tackling, good at scoring, very handsome

0:10:070:10:13

and I have particularly shiny boots.

0:10:130:10:16

Well, nice to meet you, Mr Maldini.

0:10:160:10:19

Oh, dear. He is a bit big-headed.

0:10:190:10:21

What? Hey, come back with that ball.

0:10:210:10:23

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:10:280:10:30

Goal! I score!

0:10:320:10:35

Oh, no! Now the Reds are winning.

0:10:350:10:38

-Sorry, Rebecca, he is just too good for me.

-Don't worry.

0:10:400:10:44

We'll have to play really well if we're going to win this game.

0:10:440:10:47

And we must win it, because if we win it, we win the championship!

0:10:470:10:52

And we haven't done that since 1947!

0:10:520:10:56

No, we haven't won it since 1947,

0:10:560:10:59

so we are going to have to play our very best.

0:10:590:11:02

-Can we do that?

-Yes, we can!

0:11:020:11:05

Come on then, let's play!

0:11:050:11:08

Oh, hold on, this could be an opportunity.

0:11:120:11:14

Shoots, scores! It's a goal!

0:11:140:11:17

-Come on!

-A goal for the Blues!

0:11:170:11:20

-Yeah!

-And it really is out of the blue.

0:11:200:11:23

Yes, that's magnificent!

0:11:230:11:25

No!

0:11:360:11:37

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:11:430:11:46

Oh!

0:11:460:11:48

That's it, halftime, and they go into the break with the Reds

0:11:490:11:54

leading the Blues, three goals to two. It doesn't look good

0:11:540:11:57

for the Blues, they all seem very tired.

0:11:570:12:00

I really can't see them winning this one now.

0:12:000:12:03

You see, we win.

0:12:030:12:05

It's not over yet. It's only halftime.

0:12:050:12:08

But you look exhausted. I am in tip-top condition.

0:12:080:12:12

We will win!

0:12:120:12:14

Team, team, team!

0:12:220:12:24

What's going on? Come on! You can do better than that!

0:12:240:12:27

We are playing the best we can, but they're just too good for us.

0:12:270:12:31

Oh, we're going to lose.

0:12:310:12:33

No you're not. You've just got to work harder.

0:12:330:12:36

We can't, we're going to lose.

0:12:360:12:38

But you're the best team I've ever managed.

0:12:380:12:40

Go out there and play really well in the second half.

0:12:400:12:43

You can do that, can't you?

0:12:430:12:45

We can't, boss, we are all out of energy.

0:12:450:12:48

Oh, no! We're going to lose.

0:12:490:12:53

Oh, no, this is terrible, nobody has got any energy.

0:12:530:12:57

They are too tired to run. We are never going to win.

0:12:570:13:01

Oh, no, what are we going to do?

0:13:010:13:04

Oh, I remember, do you?

0:13:040:13:06

Football players sometimes eat a fruit snack at halftime

0:13:060:13:10

to give them an energy boost for the second half.

0:13:100:13:13

That is what we need to do.

0:13:130:13:15

The bananas, that is what they are for!

0:13:150:13:18

If we all have one each, it'll give us just the energy boost we need.

0:13:180:13:22

Great! Come on, everyone, get 'em down ya!

0:13:220:13:25

The teams are out

0:13:330:13:34

and the Blues have a lot more energy.

0:13:340:13:37

Will that be enough for them to win this game?

0:13:370:13:40

They need to score two more goals.

0:13:400:13:43

HE BLOWS WHISTLE

0:13:430:13:45

Yay, oh, yay!

0:13:530:13:56

Come on, the Blues! One more goal!

0:13:560:13:59

Good save!

0:14:070:14:09

Well played! Come on, the Blues!

0:14:130:14:16

Tweeeeet!

0:14:160:14:19

-Why did everyone stop?

-The referee, he blew his whistle.

-No, I didn't.

0:14:190:14:24

-Well, who did?

-Come on, the Blues! Come on, the Blues!

0:14:240:14:28

-Tweeeeeeeeeet!

-Come on, the...

0:14:280:14:31

Oh. Sorry!

0:14:330:14:35

So, the score is 3-3

0:14:370:14:40

with only minutes left to play. The Blues have to win this game

0:14:400:14:43

to win the championship.

0:14:430:14:45

Come on, team, one last big effort.

0:14:470:14:50

We need to score that goal, OK? We can do it!

0:14:500:14:53

Come on!

0:14:530:14:55

It's Rebecca on the ball, just Maldini to beat.

0:15:060:15:09

-Oh!

-He has fouled her!

0:15:110:15:14

This should be a penalty.

0:15:140:15:16

Penalty!

0:15:160:15:17

So, it's a penalty to the Blues.

0:15:170:15:19

This must be their last chance. If Rebecca can score for the Blues,

she can win the game and win them the championship.

0:15:230:15:27

Can she score?

0:15:270:15:30

Come on, Rebecca, you can do it!

0:15:300:15:33

Oh, no, he looks very good.

0:15:340:15:38

Which side shall I kick it?

0:15:380:15:41

Oh, I don't know, but I'm sure he's going to save it.

0:15:410:15:45

Oh, I remember, do you?

0:15:450:15:48

Players sometimes try and trick the goalkeeper by pretending

0:15:480:15:52

to kick the ball one way but making it go the other way.

0:15:520:15:56

That's it, I'll try and trick him.

0:15:560:16:00

Goal!

0:16:100:16:12

-Magnificent!

-Yes!

-Yes!

0:16:120:16:16

Oh!

0:16:160:16:18

Yes! Yes!

0:16:180:16:21

End of the game, Blues win.

0:16:230:16:25

Yes! Yes, yes! I don't believe it! Yes!

0:16:250:16:31

No! Drat, drat, double drat! No, no!

0:16:350:16:39

Come and get the cup, Rebecca.

0:16:390:16:43

Thank you.

0:16:430:16:45

Yay!

0:16:460:16:49

Woo-hoo!

0:16:490:16:51

Yes!

0:16:520:16:54

Well done, everyone, it was a team effort.

0:16:570:17:00

It certainly was, you all did very well indeed.

0:17:000:17:04

And, do you now, it's the first time the Blues have won the cup since...

0:17:040:17:09

ALL: 1947?

0:17:090:17:12

Oh, yes.

0:17:120:17:13

ALL: Ha-ha-ha!

0:17:130:17:16

Well, we did it.

0:17:180:17:19

But we would never have won the cup

0:17:190:17:21

without remembering everything we needed to know.

0:17:210:17:25

A whistle is used to get the attention of the players.

0:17:250:17:29

Footballers sometimes eat a fruit snack to give them an energy boost.

0:17:290:17:35

And players can try and trick the goalkeeper to go the wrong way.

0:17:350:17:39

Well, I think it's time we went home.

0:17:440:17:48

Bye, everyone!

0:17:480:17:50

Bye-bye, Rebecca.

0:17:500:17:52

I pretended to kick it this way,

0:17:570:17:59

but I turned and kicked it that way, and I scored!

0:17:590:18:01

-Well done!

-Yeah, we won the match and the championship.

0:18:010:18:05

At the end, they gave us something that will come in handy.

0:18:050:18:09

-What's that?

-A trophy!

0:18:090:18:12

Oh, brilliant!

0:18:120:18:15

And it's perfect for the flowers.

0:18:150:18:17

It certainly is.

0:18:170:18:19
