A Fairly New (American) Fulham Fan


A few years ago while stationed in Korea I began to watch the English Premier League for the first time in my life. I had been an avid FIFA video game player for years and had thus heard of all the great players. But in Korea I began to watch and play soccer more often as my passion for the game began to pick up. In the games I always played as Arsenal as Robin van Persie was my favorite player at the time. That all changed when I started watching futbol on TV.

Initially I mostly watched to see how the USMNT players over in England were playing. Because I did not already have a team I rooted for them whenever they played, hoping they would play well regardless of the team's success. That all changed when watching Clint Dempsey play for Fulham. The more I watched and read about the team, the more attached I became. The struggle for survival and Dempsey's goal to keep them in the Premiership that year had me on the edge of my seat for the first time while watching a soccer match. From there I was hooked.

No longer do I consider myself a Dempsey lover who follows Fulham, but a full fledged Fulham fan. Even the rumors that Clintinho might be leaving no longer phase me as I have learned to love the other players as well. I still hope E.J. gets more playing time and Clint stays on the squad, I know I will support the team anyway. I know the team is not where they want to be this season, but I have faith they will pull it out and move forward once more. Go Fulham!
