Mr Poon 14 said:I have an affinity for Ipswich Town, since my family lived in Ipswich for a couple hundred years, before leaving in the mid 1600s and settling in Ipswich, MA (what are the odds?). Kind of a reach for me to really feel a kinship with present day East Anglians, but I try.
As far as other Prem teams, I've watched hundreds of matches over the last 8 or 9 years, and still don't have one team I can really say I live and die with. All I want is for someone to beat United.

I have an affinity for Liverpool given the ownership situation, and I can watch far more of their matches Stateside given that they're in the EPL, but I feel like a carpetbagger when it comes to the club and I suspect I always will.
I find myself much more infuriated at Arsenal l, than any of the big 4 Boston teams, and I love them.SidelineCameras said:Arsenal. Mostly because of "The Tuesday Club" podcast and because who doesn't want something to be angry about at 10am on a Saturday?
Not claiming to be knowledgeable about footie in any way.
Joe D Reid said:There are old Newcastle threads in here that are mostly me talking to myself, so that's the easy answer. Celtic is 1(b).
Weirdly, my new brother-in-law grew up in some sort of abandoned slag heap near Newcastle and has been a die-hard since birth, so I am now a NUFC supporter by both affinity and family.
