A survey by TransferWise shows that only Manchester United are supported in greater numbers by expatriate Britons living and working in the United States than Everton.

The study finds that the Blues are better supported than the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool among Brit expats.

The Toffees have a great support here in Ireland as well... North and South. The boats were crammed with Evertonians back in the day. Nowadays though, it is mostly flying for me, to get to matches. It used to be, once upon a time, only about an hour's drive.

Anyhow, great to know that Everton is being well supported. Everything Everton could just take off bigtime with this new Mr 49.9% man on board. Let's hope so. Up the Toffees.

Very true, when I've watched matches at the local Everton pub always a lot of Brits there. Also one of the best supported clubs among American footy fans.

Paul Ferry counts TENFOLD.

I know one ex-pat who lives right down the street from me here at the NJ shore... and he has a big Man Utd sticker on the back of his very, very old Mercedes. Like it's from 1982 or something. He seems like a good guy though.

So Point Pleasant, NJ can be viewed as a microcosm of this groundbreaking "study". One United fan, one Everton fan. Everyone else supports the Giants or Jets (or Red Bulls or Barcelona).

Oh wait, I'm not an ex-pat at all. Nevermind.
COYB!

The reason we're over here (Seattle) is that it's too painful being over there!

We can always turn off the TV and go back to bed.

I live 2 blocks away from a Chelsea supporter, and he's even more miserable than me.

I went to my first game with my Dad in 1961 – a time when a classy team had guts and heart, as well as technical skill.

Despite Martinez making schoolboy errors in tactics and subs, the baffling thing is that the players cant hold it together for a full game.

Put Pennington in with Jagielka and maybe we'll keep a clean sheet. Stones is a showboating liability and Funes Mori tries hard, but doesn't have much positional sense. Please RM, no more Barkley as a holding midfielder (v West Ham) – he can't keep the ball when he starts out with it, never mind when he already has it!

COYB... Balls to the wall against Chelsea in the quarter final on Saturday lads – run your socks off, close 'em down outside the box and shoot from the halfway line. :)
