Let's identify some allegiances on the blog for fun, or in case all the Man U fans unite to overthrow the rest of the mods and we need to know who we can trust  ;)

I personally am a Newcastle supporter, but I know I'm not the only soccer/football fan on the blog. If you support a favorite team, let us know about it!

Also, if you're just going to bash the game, start your own thread.

Toon Army!

Was given my first United kit for my first birthday and haven't looked back since. Needless to say, I'm passionate.

I'll also stand by my promise to TP everyone who replies to any thread I post in today because I'm so happy we demolished Chelsea.

Good stuff... the inevitable Liverpool hiccup is coming too.

Yeah, I still believe Chelsea are our biggest threat.

New England Revolution, I am serious too, locally at least. Globally, I am a two-timer, I root for Man U and Chelsea, I have no real allegiance to either team, just like to see the best soccer players play. I also root for Newcastle as well for that matter, their beer lead me to their team. When it comes to national squads, I go USA all the way, but love Nederland and Germany.

Porto, the best soccer club in the world.

We'd be perennial Champions League winners if we weren't forced to sell our best players. We still do very well, considering our limitations.

Man Utd.  I studied abroad in Cork, Ireland, in 1998, and the fans there were in love with local boy Roy Keane.  After watching them play, I adopted them as my team of choice.

I realized something after I wrote this, that when Chelsea and Manchester play, I do pull for Man U, so I guess put me in that category. Being a fan of Chelsea and Man U, is like being a Celtics and a Lakers fan, it just ain't an option. Drogba and Ballack just happen to be two of my favorite players.

In regards to the MLS I am a Revolution fan, I've been to two MLS cup games, both being Revs vs. Galaxy... sadly they didn't win either. In regards to international play I root for Germany as I am Irish and German, but it's not like Ireland will ever make it to the cup... I also pull for the US.

If this is just a Premier League discussion then I'd have to say the Spurs (Tottenham Hotspur). Been a fan since the late 90's when a Dane called Allan Nielsen did quite well for them.

But my 'primary' team has to be AC Milan, followed them since I was 6 years old :)
