well I was bandwagon for PSG before this year I didn't like any french club. as for Juventus there not commercialized this is the first year anyone gave them any recognition. you guys also conveniently forgot about porto. as for bayen I started following bundesliga in 03-04 so bayern was the team I naturally feel in love with.

Admitted on one point.

Hey, they are one of my clubs, but they are the Yankees of Italian soccer. 31 Scudetti. By far the most domestically sucessful club in Italy, with a massive fanbase across the country (and equally large group of people hating on them across the country for those reasons).

Naturally because? You like the best team in a league ... that is the appearance.

Hey, if you love soccer and this is how you follow, more power to you. I would rather have it than the typical soccer-hating American people I most frequently run into. But understand that in general people are going to give more respect to someone who doesn't appear to become a fan of whatever team happens to be winning at the time.

it's not like I'm going to switch clubs once I've chosen one to support. the reason I chose bayern is because the use to be the team that played attacking football with no cares about defending . obviously that has changed but still they remain my number one club.

Unless I am missing the mark, Jezyk was being funny and mocking Miamihurricanes' post where it was all top teams ...

England - Chelsea (I did a study abroad in London and one of my professors was a supporter who would get us tickets so I went to a lot of their games in 99 and they've been pretty easy to follow since)

Italy - Genoa

US - Rochester (Raging) Rhinos ..... although I'll have to start giving some love to the Phoenix FC Wolves

No MLS teams as of yet although typically enjoy watching Seattle (i am a seahawks fan so that helps as well), philly and salt lake.

I really haven't watched much out of France. I do see a fair bit out of Mexico but really no team has grabbed my interest ... it's usually just kind of there. Germany there are a couple of teams that I like, but again no one team that I check in on or go out of my way to watch. I'll watch Barca when they are on, but wouldn't say I'm a fan or have a large interest in the rest of Spanish football.
