I know there are a lot of fans of Premier League, Bundesliga, etc. soccer teams in North America and I'm wondering how you chose your favorite, since you can't just pick the local team.

This isn't one of those "which team should I root for" threads, I'm just curious.

Just watched a lot of soccer (mostly premier league) and ended up pulling for Tottenham every time they played...I liked the way they play (speedy wingers, attacking style), and Gareth Bale was incredible to watch...

I like whichever team has at least one player who can bench 200 lbs. So...I guess I can't like any soccer team based on my official sports fandom policy. inb4christianoronaldoistehjack3d

Spurs reminded me of the Flyers.

back when I was 16 my cousin showed me Ronaldinho playing soccer. I was a soccer hater at the time but seeing his moves on the field made me fall in love with the sports I probably would have ended up liking any team he was currently on at the time, fortunately it was Barcelona

first football games I watched was in the world cup 1998 (I was 5)

I watch france play and fell in love with henry and how fast he was (he played as a winger for france).

Signed for arsenal in 1999 and since then have been following arsenal

I loathe soccer, but if you put a gun to the heads of my immediate family members and demanded that I support a team, I'd pick Fulham FC because I'm a jags fan and our owner also owns them.

I don't have a favorite club. I don't really have any emotional connection to any European club tbh..The only team that I follow to an extent is Boca Juniors of Argentina because they were the first team I watched play on T.V :(. I'm not crazy about them, but if i'd pick a team it definitely Boca Juniors.

So yeah, Boca Juniors simple cause it's the first team I watched play.

I love Ronaldo though, but not really a huge fan of Madrid. I hate teams that buy talents the way RM,Bayern, Barca do.

i really only root for real madrid because of cr7, because i love watching his gameplay. other than that, i don't have a favorite team, and i'll usually just watch whatever premiere league or champions league game i can find that day.
