I'd attach it mainly to Howard.

Man Utd signing an American was a big deal back then. It put him on the map. Then to Everton.

Once he took the starter's role with our Men's National team before the 2010 World Cup, it just followed back to Everton. Tim Howard, US Team keeper and media spokesman. What Club does he play for?

Having our most famous player going out on loan to Everton twice certainly helped. But two World Cup qualifiers and World Cups with Evertonian Tim Howard as one of our main guys, for me, is the big reason.

If the "Sons of Shankly" find out about this, they'll start protest marches against us in Washington DC, New York, California, Florida, Texas, Tennessee etc etc!!!

Wow, I know I Googled Everton a lot over the summer but didn't realize I had done it that much. I did get a bit obsessive with all the transfer rumors.

From an American's perspective, I'm not sure what to put this down to. Some of it may have been the Tim Howard connection. Maybe a tiny bump since Roger Bennett from Men in Blazers is a big fan. The NBC sports coverage doesn't particularly favor Everton.

I think the main thing is that Everton produced a lot of rumors and articles through the Moshiri buyout and subsequent "𧴜m war chest". It's funny how baseless tabloid rumor mill journalism can help a team boost its international profile.

We're actually 8th according to the article. Unsurprisingly the Reds are way ahead of us.

What's interesting is that the usual suspects are not there: Chelsea, Man City, Man United etc. Perhaps this shows that this market is still immature and ripe for picking with the right brand.

Who's the next big thing in US football; we should try to acquire him.

I would say the next "big thing" in US football is Christian Pulisic (who is only 18), but I don't think we'll be getting him. He plays for Dortmund and has even started in some Champions League games for them.

There were some rumors in the summer about him moving to the RS, but those came to nothing.

I Google, gurgle and gargoyle Everton, like, constantly. You're welcome!!!

Also, since most of my compatriots probably can't spell Lighchester correctly, I'm surprised they topped us.

Frigging figures the Satanists and the fucking hipster heroes Spurs came in as 1 & 2. We did elect a Nerf potato as president sooooooo please don't judge us
