You can tell by my screen name, 1860 Munich. I'm probably the only 1860 fan in America though.

I've followed the Bundesliga very closely ever since visiting Germany two years ago. It's a league with tons of parity so every team has a chance at winning, unlike the EPL and LaLiga. My fan is a big fan of Bayern Munich, which is definitely the most popular team in Germany, and I started rooting for 1860 which is Bayern's arch-arch-arch rival. They both play at the Allianz Arena, their derby games can get quite heated

I have met a couple of people that follow 1860 here in the US. I think every first division team in Europe has at least a few followers in the US.

I watch the Premier League mostly, but also check out La Liga or Serie A once in awhile on FoxSoccer.
My favorite teams are Arsenal and Tottenaham: Arsenal for its history and the rabidness of their fans and from all the great highlights I've seen of them on BPL Archives, and the Spurs for the scrappy way they play nowadays. To me, they play a bit more LaLiga style, with lots of short accurate passing and flashy dribbling, abandoning the age-old Premier league style of "long-balling." Mike Dawson is my favorite player.

I just recently started watching EPL and don't really have a favorite team yet. I generally support the underdog in whatever match I'm watching, but I did find myself rooting for ManU against Man City when Rooney had that incredible overhead bicycle kick. I still get goosebumps when I watch replays of that.

So far I like the play of Arsenal, Spurs, and Sunderland. But I'm definitely not married to any of them yet.

Even i as a Chelsea fan didn't want Man Vity to win that game and as much as i hate Rooney f*** me, what a goal that was.

I would have to says Spurs are the most exciting team. They have Bale and Lennon on the wings and watching them is rarely boring, as to is watching Blackpool.

This is totally ****ed up that you are supporting two arch rivals.
