With the British Premier League starting today with UEFA Cup Champions Liverpool Vs recently promoted Norwich City, we want to know who is your favorite BPL or European Soccer team and what do you think about the moves that have been made during the recently closed transfer window.
Each team typically has their own special fan bases spread out around the area with Liverpool gaining momentum over the last few years. I had the opportunity to watch the UEFA Cup finals with The Liverpool FC Supporters Club of Delaware in the beginning of June. Even though they are across the Atlantic and many miles away from the game on the pitch, the Football fans of America still party and sing like they are at the top of the supporters section of the stadium.
Liverpool isn’t the only club big here in the Delaware Valley, Arsenal and Chelsea also have large support numbers that go out to bars every Saturday or Sunday morning to have some brunch and watch the matches live on NBC. For me, I am the lone Manchester United out of my friends.
The love for Soccer in America is huge and many people are die hard fans of a team that they have never seen before, hopefully with the Philadelphia Union being on top of the Eastern Conference table, they will attract some people to check them out who are in love with the support.
Let us know in the comments what your favorite team is and why and how you think they’ll do this season.
