Speaking of Wales -- as a relative latecomer to soccer and the EPL, I have to admit that I like Swansea as much as any team right now. The storyline of being the first Welsh team to be promoted to the top tier was cool, but I like the passing game they play, and now that Rodgers has gone to Liverpool I'm finding myself catching their games too. I just like the Barcelona style, I guess, I was rooting for Spain by the end of the 2010 World Cup.
I did make the determination that, since I didn't grow up a fan of any of these teams, I wasn't going to be a front-runner and latch onto the three or four usual suspects. I mean, what would we think of an expat Brit who just discovered baseball and decided he was going to be a fan of the Yankees or Red Sox? Poser, right?
