Hello Everyone, I'm new to Everton and new to football in general so I thought i'd introduce myself
My name is Matt, I'm a 19 year old American who is just now getting into football (soccer). Never really paid attention to soccer until the 2010 World Cup where for the first time I actually sat down and watched some games as I watched the USA's journey through South Africa. That got me interested. Slowly but surely I got more and more interested, watching more and more games. Watched the Premier League for the very first time the morning City won the title in dramatic fashion. Last Year I watched a bunch of games but never really had a rooting interest. I spent last season looking at the teams in the Premier League trying to decide which club I will support. Eventually I chose Everton because
1. Goodison Park is probably my favorite ground in the Premier League
2. The fans are passionate and loyal which is a big plus in my book
3. Tim Howard (my favorite American player other than Dempsey) is your goalie.
4. My little brother decided to become a Liverpool supporter so It seemed fitting that I choose the biggest rivals of my brother's team.
So anyways that's me. Like I said I'm still learning about Football but this year I have a team to root for and I can't wait till August 17th. Looking forward to talking with you guys!
