However Mike, there is no reason why the badge that appeared on the post I am referring to, ie. Everton with stars and stripes in background, could not be used in association with an American Everton Supporters Club. Just a thought !

We also should be trying to branch out to the other untapped countries that we have had super stars from like Australia (Tim Cahill) and the US (Donovan, Howard, McBride and even Joe-Max Moore).
Even without having certain countriesÂ stars we should be trying to push our brand in a few of the mega rich places such as Saudi and Dubai. These are places that have recently started to take more of an interest in football and particularly the English Premier League. Surely we could try ways to reach out to people in these places and push our brand.

I'd say, Tim Howard is second only to Landon in name recognition in the US. And all USMNT fans know what Club Tim plays for.

It was when McBride went on loan and reading something along the lines of... follows fellow American Joe-Max Moore to Everton..." that I found out the name of the Club Joe-Max had played for.

Just read that. Hell I'd love to print up the Ts with that badge - but I'd never do it without some approval from whomever created it - copyrights or not...
Far too ethical for my own good.
Loved this article. I do think they'll be many more Americans following Everton this season. Articles like this really help pique interest.
Roll on Saturday! Can't wait.

Just yesterday I joined the Boston Evertonians fan club and plan to visit the local pub they meet at one of these weekend to catch a game and make some new friends.
As for the badge, I first saw it on the fan club site yesterday so I imagine there's already somebody planning to make a buck with it.
