Speaking Leeds - after a few years in purgatory they might be finally fighting for a EPL slot this year. Probably wishful thinking but I wouldn't mind seeing them and Middlesbrough back up in the top flight for 2011.
I wonder how many Americans became fans of Newcastle because of their Brown Ale.
I still haven't grown attached to any particular team, but I do enjoy watching teams with Americans and started to enjoy Everton when Landon Donovan was playing for them. I also check in on Stoke City every so often because of their connection to the Cleveland Stokers of the NASL.
