always intrigued to know when people started liking the team they do

Man United... 97'... they visited HK during that summer for a pre-season friendly.  I got tix and it was my first experience watching a Premiership team.  

 

England... 2000ish... cuz there were a bunch of United players... plus I was more familiar with the team having watched mostly Premiership games at the time.

Arsenal, around early 2000.

NY Red Bulls, I'm a NYer.

USA. I'm a big France supporter because of the 98 WC where I found out about Henry. I started following Arsenal because of him.

My parent's are from Haiti, it's hard to follow the national team and club teams. I watch the NT when games are televised. Would love to see them pull a Costa Rica of sorts.

First tried to seriously get into the sport during WC 2006. I was supporting the USA because thats all I knew. I eventually became fans of France, Argentina and the host nation of Germany after that. I dont support em, but I watch and root for them anytime they play.

After that I was in and out of watching soccer completely but always played the FIFA games because I was good.

Man City very loosely from 2009-11 because of the FIFA video games and Robinho and Tevez were players that caught my attention from WC 06. I wanted to come into the sport not picking a big superstar or big club to root for so I eventually followed them to City and have rooted for them ever since.

Portland Timbers and Man City got very serious for me in 2012.

I was extremely good at FIFA and all I ever used was Man City. I streamed that fateful day against QPR when City won the title in extra time because I knew it was a big event, but never knew HOW big it really was at the time. I was put on since then.

Finally my hometown of Portland finally got the Timbers to be an MLS team and I promised myself to be a fan of footy. I attended many, many, horrible games and have persevered from then on.

It's funny, had I started watching footy now I'd never be able to root for RM because they're so out there in popularity, especially having CR7 during the time social media came up.

I picked up FIFA 06 during the WC, it was my first time getting into footy, and got 07 soon after. Started rooting for RM in big part because in 06-07 everyone was on the 'Dinho/Barca bandwagon, so I could never pick the "obvious" choice. I think something about Robinho appeals to fans of basketball/hip-hop culture too, dude was my only "favorite" player I've had. Then you take those factors and combine them with the fact that in a few months time I became a juggernaut on FIFA online, with RM as my best and only team I'd use.

When I started following scores and the table, tuning into Fox Soccer Channel, RM were in fourth place in January and I started really rooting for them. By the end of the season, they had a historic resurgence and finished tops. I honestly had no idea they were the world's biggest club when I started rooting for them.

I also remember trying really hard to forcefully pick an EPL team before rooting for RM. But none ever appealed to me enough and I learned you can't force fandom.

Chelsea since 09, strictly because of Drogba.

USNT because that's the home team but I also tend to root for squads with lots of black players, usually France. I like to see brothers do well laugh.gif

My father had spent years trying to get me to watch, but FIFA is what did it for me.

Also, I think if there is one thing most of us have in common is our parents aren't from the states/Canada. Lot of first generation cats in here, right?

I always thought this had A LOT to do with most of us taking an interest in footy.

With a lot of our parents coming from football loving countries, it makes sense.

Perisic is a baller and if that rumor is true, he was one of my favorite players.
post #41383 of 41386

As one of the American's in this thread growing up I was kind of a unique case I guess cause unlike some of you neither of my parents are from out the States both, black and families have been in America for generations (cause slavery) so I didn't have that background of having parents from countries that love the sport.

 

I came into following it and playing on my own because of me trying to expand my interests in life at that point in my youth.
