Is this a Hedingu or a Header?

Today's Daily Yomiuri gives some tips on learning English through football. Japanese often don't realize that such terms as "hedingu shuuto" and "pii kay" are not correct English. And lord knows what they would make of the expressions "I'm absolutely gutted" and "I'm sick as a parrot"! Teach your students a few of these and, especially if they get to meet David Beckham, they'll no doubt be "over the moon".
