Hi,

I'm Phil a resident of United Kingdom, living in a former mining village called Pelton which is in County Durham.

Been a packers fan for 13+ years & visited Lambeau in October 2008, & was lucky enough to see us beat Manning & the Colts.

I'm 50 years old

2 children

Want to know anything else please ask a question won't offend BUT I reserve the right to not answer.

be well

Back in the 1980's this new to uk sport was shown on TV. Back then we goit the Monday night game on Sunday afternoon after. Hope that amkes sense, effectivly the game was 6 days late nut no internet etc so no harm done. Game highlights & scores from rest of NFL as well as rules etc...

Move foward & a new TV station started up, & it showed NFL games the Sunday night game & the Monday night game BOTH live

I then decided I needed a team to support.

I looked at New England as I live in England but at the time they were winning everything so I said NO
I looked at Raiders but too far south
I looked at Arizona (I worked ofr Arizona Chemical at the time) too far south & too much red in their unifom.
A friedn asked me to look at her team so I looked & liked what I saw. Ageing QB same as my soccer team, only there was ageing centre forward, locally owned passionate all the things as a Geordie I admired & so began my passion for the Green & Gold

I guess it's Chelsea or Newcastle, good taste in football, so should be good taste in soccer as well.
