Anyone else a fan of a team in the English Premier League?

I have supported Manchester United since the summer of 2007. Last week, I finally got around to making the trip to Old Trafford (United's stadium) and man was it awesome! Finally got some gear that I had been looking for, and I got to get a couple of the player's autographs.
The players whose autograph I got include: Edwin Van der Sar, Javier Hernandez, Rafael, John O'Shea, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Michael Owen, Ji-Sung Park, Tomasz Kuszczak, Fabio da Silva, and lastly, Paul Scholes. Van der Sar is a legend in the EPL, and I was freakin stoked to shake his hand and get his autograph. He is set to retire soon. I was also stoked to get Giggs and Scholes' autographs.

If you aren't a fan, you should seriously consider watching and supporting a team in the EPL during the spring and summer months. It makes for a smooth transition right into NCAA football in late August and September. Here's a list of the teams in the EPL as of the 2010-11 season: List of Premier League clubs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   Each club has it's own outstanding history, except Manchester City, and a long tradition of footballing excellence.

Obviously I am biased, but here are the chants and songs of Manchester United along with the official song: Manchester United Songs and Chants about Liverpool

Lastly, here is the official song of the the FC in the city I currently reside in (Liverpool).

Being a fan of Man U is like being a fan of the Yankees.

I like watching Champions League better than EPL anyways.

sounds better with a scottish accent.



i watch Arsenal for several months each season, up until they have too many draws to compete for the title.  love em, but they are the most frustrating team to follow.

my first team is Ajax, but i only get to seem them on a spanish channel when they play PSV.  so they are pretty hard to follow.

I'm a fan of soccer in general. I follow the French league more closely than the EPL, but I do catch the games when they're on. I used to follow it more when Henry was still with Arsenal. Lately, I've been finding myself rooting for the Spurs more and more.

My favorite team from any league is Marseille (l'OM).

Yes, the Marseille match cost me some money from the February match in which we drew with Marseille.
Thankfully I won it back in March. Never underestimate the Frech teams!

Ah man, I was dying over the March match. The first leg really had me believing we had a chance to knock you guys out. Especially with the game at the Velodrome.

Marseille and PSG. Now that's a rivalry!

Yeah, Nantes is in Ligue 2. Pretty close to the bottom, I think.

My favorite team is Barcelona (went on vacation there...fell in love with the city...my hostel was 2 blocks from Camp Nou so I took the tour there).   On that same trip I encountered the most idiotic airport security ever in Manchester, England so Man U and City never had a chance of becoming my EPL favorite, heh.

I have tickets just a few rows from the field to see Man U v. Barcelona on July 30th up in DC.   I got tickets in the Barca fan club section so it should be a ton of fun.   Obviously it's just a preseason exhibition so the stars probably won't play the full game (and Messi probably won't even be there), but both these teams are stacked enough that I'll still get to see some of the world's best up close.

I've struggled to pick an EPL team, but I'm becoming more and more attached to Spurs.   Their games are so helter-skelter it can be really frustrating to watch, and Gomes really sucks sometimes.   But they're certainly exciting games at least.   They're 4 pts behind ManCity to get into the Champions League again, so  I assume the Man U fans here will also be rooting on Spurs for that, hah.   With games left against City, Liverpool, and Chelsea left though, it's gonna be tough to make it back for next years.

The only other EPL I seriously considered picking was Liverpool.   Not long after finally deciding to fully commit to Spurs, the  Boston Red Sox owners bought Liverpool.   Spurs are still number 1, but that sealed Liverpool as a strong number 2 pick.

I high-fived you just bc of your comments on the Spurs. Their style of play has really begun to win me over.

I freakin' hate Liverpool, though.

I had to hear all kinds of smack from my French flatmate for almost a month about how mighty, mighty Manchester United couldn't even score a goal on Marseille. Boy was I glad when we won in March (2-1). I guess the positive to come out of it all is that I learned to curse him in French by just saying "Merde Putan" whenever I passed him.

Liverpool is a great team and has a bright future ahead of them with Kenny Daglish at the helm for them.
You have no idea how often, even to this day, that my other Scouser flatmates remind me of the score 3-1 when we went to Anfield and got our arses handed to us on a platter.

The one negative of living in Liverpool and being a supporter of United is that I can't wear my gear very often.
Rule #1: Never wear United gear into a Scouser pub unless you are looking for a fight.  (Should have been common sense, but you have to live and learn dontcha? lol )

I do wonder how much longer we will have Sir Alex though?

i hate liverpool.  my hatred grew even stronger under Benitez when they would purchase players just so other clubs couldnt have them.  they were poaching players like Crouch and Jermaine Bennett and then just letting them rot on the bench most of the time.  they could have really helped the smaller clubs they were at, but got screwed by going to the city of stolen hubcaps.
