Hi, I've been meaning to become a fan of EPL for a couple of months and while I've watched games and kept slight track of the league back in high school, I'm still not sure who I should root for. I know I don't want to be a Man U. fan because my hatred for the NY Yankees keeps me from being a fan of a team who is compared to them. I'm not looking to be a fair weather fan. This is to be a commitment like my other sports teams BUT I want to know who I'm becoming a fan OF. I've read Bill Simmons' guide to choosing an EPL team and it has helped some but it's 6 years old and times have obviously changed from then so, could you help me? I chose Newcastle because that's the team I'm leaning towards the most and I figured it would be better to start at the top of my list and work my way down if need be.
Thanks and hopefully you can count me amongst your ranks.
