After immersing myself in football for over a year, the team I chose…..drumroll please…tatatatatatatatatatat




Teams I am Considering

July 12, 2008

The input has been awesome and I have read every post.  I have also read a lot of history on the teams and watched evertthing I can on TV.  I have been meaning to update everyone on what I am thinking, and since Tina asked, I better do it now!

Aston Villa – The Englishmen at the local pub all say I will end up choosing Aston Villa.  I have to say they are definitely in the lead!  Their owner is an American who started his career at the same company I did, they play in a working class city like where I grew up, they have a history of sucess, and i love that they are not selling the rights to their jersey, they are donating it to a charity this year.

Aresenal – I am not sure what attracts me to them other than they are the first team that I read their entire history on.  They are obviously successful and I like the their story.  The Brits tell me they may as well play in France b/c they have so much French on the team….I am not sure I like that. 

Sunderland – This is one of the teams that some of the guys a the pub support.  Great fan base.  I just don’t know that I have anything in common with the town itself.

Swansea City sounds good b/c they are Welsh and in the top leag, but not sure they are going to be able to overtake the other two.

Other teams in other leagues I am interested in.

Rangers, River Plate and Boca Juniors

What do you guys think about these teams?  Can I support 2 teams in the Premier League?

Hello everyone.  I am an American who played soccer as a kid, but got really hooked during the 2006 World Cup.  I need a team to support and I just can’t get into the MLS. 

I started this forum a couple of weeks ago.  The comments started coming in under this post, but I would like to begin having this discussion on the “Who Should I Support?” forum which you can access by clicking the tab on the right.

I also will create any discussion you want to talk about, so i started some other forums as well.  I don’t know anything about these other leagues, would be interesting to learn. 

My only request is let’s keep this forum somewhat intelligent.  If you read the original comments below, you will see excellent examples of intelligent coversation.  I don’t know about the UK, but in the US sports message boards can be loaded with stupidity!  Say what you want, agree, disagree, just don’t post idiotic comments!

Ok, everyone, let’s hear what YOU have to say to an American football novice!!!!  (And to everyone else!!!)
