FatFreddyscat,

That is a very good question. I live in Massachusetts not far from Gillette Stadium where the New England Revolution play. I was a big fan of Clint Dempsey. I guess you could say I kept following him to Fulham.

That was the starting point for me. As I followed him and the team I really got hooked. I became a fan. My interest in Fulham changed quickly. It was much more about the team very quickly than following Clint Dempsey.

I was a fan, but the relegation battle took it to another level for me.

I am lifelong fan of the New England Patriots. I can honestly tell you that I follow these 2 teams equally.

Welcome to the MB Fulham Pats Fan. As for finding Fulham games shown in the US, check out the sticky linx at the top of this part of the MB, for both Internet and TV showings. They cover - just about - everything you'll need... and if you have any more, just add them in.

Again, welcome, and hope to read more from you ..  :58:

Thanks Logicalman,

In a short period of time I have become a huge fan of the club. As a blogger I am trying to give the most up to date info on Fulham as I can. I am also trying to spread the word regarding the team.

This is a great messageboard. Keep up the great work.

I feel your pain. Being from Canada, my best friend and I are the only people I know who support the club around here.
Most others haven't even heard of them. All they know are man utd, liverpool, etc.

It is embarrassing.

Welcome on board Mr Augustino.

Which bit of Canada are you from? I like Canada a lot, especially Toronto. It is like a cleaner New York but with all the diversity. Hard not to like that.
